Day 9 • Fasting & Praying

2 Corinthians 10:4, For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;

Heavenly Father, You Are The Lord Our God, Mighty In Battle. Because of the finished work of Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection, we know we already have victory over the works of darkness, and over every work of the flesh in Jesus’ name. So we decree and declare by faith we are victorious in spiritual warfare. We say Thank You Lord being our Defense whenever we are in trouble. Thank You Lord for being our Hiding Place when we need refuge. Lord, when we could’ve been overwhelmed by the circumstances in life or attacks of the enemy, You Oh Lord lifted up a standard against his plots and schemes to take us out. And today, we declare Your blessings in spiritual warfare for those who are suited in the whole Armor of God. Lord, we put on and we keep the helmet of salvation on because You Are Our Rock of our Salvation. As we obey Your word oh God, we pull down every stronghold in the mind that comes against the peace God has given us. And we Thank You Jesus for keeping our minds steady, settled and at peace no matter the situation. We put on the breastplate of righteousness to guard our hearts from any attempt at demonic intrusion. For we decree and declare our hearts are receiving the goodness of God, and our desires, motives and intentions are purified in Jesus’ name. We thank You Lord for the word of truth, that strengthens and encourages us to stand and remain faithful when we would have stumbled and fell. We thank You because Your strong hand was there to keep us from falling. We Thank You Lord for not letting our enemies triumph over us. Thank You Lord for the gospel of the Kingdom ordering our steps in paths of righteousness and leading us into Your blessed promises. And we thank You for the shield of faith that stops every fiery dart of the enemy. And we take the sword of the spirit to cut out evil at the root in Jesus’ name. Because You Are The Lord of Hosts, we ask that You send Your warring angels to watch over us and protect us from all dangers seen and unseen this year. We bless Your Holy Name, because Your Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths through the dark and difficult times of life. Lord God, You Are our Lawyer in the courtroom and because You have been on our side, and we win every case in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, Because You Are Our God Mighty In Battle, You never lose a fight. And so we have great faith and confidence in You by sealing this prayer by giving You the Highest Praise. We say, Hallelujah to Jesus, The Lamb of God. For You have already won the victory, and we are victorious in Jesus’ matchless name. And Lord, we give You all the praise, glory and honor for all these things being done in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Day 8 • Fasting & Praying

Psalm 34:3, O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

Heavenly Father, You Are The God of All Creation. The heavens, the earth, the sun, the stars, the moon, and all the amazing wonders in the earth and in the universe all display how beautiful and creative You are. We know it is Your will for us to praise You For You have commanded everything that has breath praise The Lord. And so because You created us to worship, magnify, and glorify Your Holy Name, we pray, asking and believing by faith in agreement with Your word that You reveal the gifts and talents inside us, and we humble ourselves that we may be taught, trained and strengthened to praise You for Your mighty acts and Your excellent greatness. As we offer our gifts and sacrifices of praise unto You Lord, we ask that You send more creative, gifted and anointed worshippers with various gifts to UVCF Church, so we may join together in magnifying the name of Jesus all the more, giving You a more excellent praise. Heavenly Father, we confess by faith that You are raising up those with creative gifts at UVCF Church to praise You for Your excellent greatness. We confess You are sending faithful, humble, honorable, mature, creative, and anointed praise & worship leaders, musicians, singers, songwriters, dancers, poets and artists to join UVCF Church in Jesus’ name, who live a lifestyle of praise and worship and enjoy teaching others to walk in the blessings of being a true worshipper. We speak by faith our worship leaders are saved and know what it means to worship The Lord in spirit and in truth. They have the gift of discernment and yield to the Holy Spirit and flow as He leads. They are students of the Word of God. They live and sing the Word of God, and express their gifts under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. They worship You oh God in the beauty of holiness. They delight in living a lifestyle of worship and their loving-kindness toward others attracts lost souls and encourages the saints to look to Jesus, Who is King of all kings and Lord of all lords. We Thank You Heavenly Father for sending these gifts to our church ministry. Now Lord, we ask that You protect them from the enemy in Jesus’ name. Let the light of Your Word give them clear direction, shining a bright light on their pathway, so that their steps are ordered by You in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, let them not be deceived by the seductive offers of the world in Jesus’ name. Let them be wholly anchored in Your word so they are able to witness to sinners with loving-kindness, so sinners may receive Jesus Christ, and their lives be transformed for the better in Jesus’ name. Lord, we say Thank You in advance for keeping those You have anointed on a righteous path, so they walk in Your blessings and favor, and bring glory to Your Name. And we give You all praise and glory for these blessings we believe are done in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
