Day 15 • Fasting & Prayer

Matthew 21:13, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

1 Kings 8:10-11, And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord, So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord.

Heavenly Father, We Thank You for Giving Your Only Begotten Son, Jesus to be a Sacrifice for all our sins. And because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we have been delivered and set free from the powers of sin and darkness. We have salvation and life in this present world, and life more abundantly in eternity. And so Lord, because You deserve to be praised and magnified, we ask for a greater revelation concerning worship. We ask for a deeper revelation that provokes us individually and corporately as a body of believers to pray like we’ve never prayed before and take our worship to higher and higher levels this year in Jesus’ name. According to Your word, when two or more pray, asking and believing as touching anything, it shall be done. And so we ask that You release an anointing for prayer upon the pastors and leaders that a special grace for establishing a culture of prayer in our church that teaches on prayer, produces prayer partners and prayer intercessors full of faith, who will pray effectually and fervently with the help of the Holy Spirit, so we succeed as a church and see results concerning all things in Jesus’ name. For we believe by faith that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. And we decree and declare it is done in Jesus’ name.

Lord, we pray You encourage our hearts, build our faith, teach us and train us so we operate as one when we pray and worship, that Your glory might rest on us and that Your glory might be present in all of our events, programs, small group, gatherings, church services and meetings. Lord, we confess that when we worship, there shall be deliverance. For we decree and declare every corporate battle for our personal lives, our church, our families, businesses, and our are already won now in Jesus’ name. So Heavenly Father, we ask that You reveal to us the height, the depth, the breadth and width of Your love for us, that we all might be moved to give beyond our usual sacrifices this year in Jesus’ name. Lord, we ask that You give us that personal faith conviction we need deep inside our hearts and souls, so we no longer give lip-service concerning worship, but that we might be filled with the Holy Spirit, and live obedient lifestyles that bring great glory to You in Jesus’ name. We say Thank You Lord for the blessings of faith, hope and love, wisdom and insights, good understanding, and secrets for our success, boldness and courage, generosity, victory, visions and dreams, deliverance and times of refreshing for our souls that You are releasing as we spend time in Your presence. Thank You Heavenly Father for all the new things You are about to do for us, in us and through us this year. Thank You Lord for building our faith, so we grow and mature together in Christ through the word, through prayer and praise, through fellowship and suffering. Heavenly Father, as we worship You in spirit and in truth, we decree and declare victory belongs to us in Jesus’ name, because it is the gift You have given to us through Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord. We confess and believe by faith that as we worship together, we are winning together in Jesus’ name. And so we bless Your Name and give You all the praise, glory and honor for these things we believe for by faith now in Jesus’ name. Amen.
