Day 12 • Fasting & Praying

John 13:34-35, A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Heavenly Father, You showed Your Love for us first by sending Jesus to die on the cross at Calvary and redeem us while we were yet sinners. And so Lord, for this I say Thank You. Now Lord, I open my heart to receive Your amazing love today. Lord, because Your unfailing love for me has captivated my heart and mind, the love of God is inspiring me, motivating me, and moving me to love my brothers and sisters in Christ one sacrificially and to give cheerfully. I confess people in the world are beginning to see I am a true disciple of Jesus Christ because of my love for the saints. I declare my love for the church is no secret, and I proudly put the love of God on display for all to see so the name of Jesus is magnified and God is glorified in Jesus’ name. I decree and declare saints and sinners are running to see about this love, inquire about this love, and learn about this love, that they may receive this love that God has given us and made available to them also through Christ Jesus. Heavenly Father, the joy of knowing You is my strength. And so we confess our joy and happiness is growing, increasing, adding and multiplying this year the more we study and learn about You oh God. So Heavenly Father, we ask by faith in Jesus’ name that You reveal Yourself more and more to us this year, that we may grow in grace and comprehend the height, the depth and the width of Your love for us. Show us Your glory Oh God like You showed Moses. With each new revelation of Your Name, we pray our hearts are filled with an increasing measure of Your joy. Lord as we invite Your presence into our lives, our homes, communities, in our relationships, in the classroom, on the playground, in the office and boardrooms, in our ministries, in our church services, and wherever we may be, Lord, we prepare our hearts now to receive the fullness of joy You have for us in Jesus’ name. Lord, we Thank You for Your peace being far beyond our ability to comprehend. And because You have given me Your peace Oh God, I do not worry or fear. But instead I pray about everything, giving You Thanks for all the wonderful things You have done and are about to do this year in Jesus’ name. And because You do all things well, I confess with confident assurance that I have the peace of God in my heart and mind in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, my soul rejoices today and I boast of the love, joy, peace, and all the awesome fruit of the spirit we have in Christ Jesus. I bless Your Holy Name and give You all the glory for these wonderful blessings so ask and believe by faith in Jesus name. Amen.
