Day 16 • Fasting & Praying

John 15:4-5, Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Heavenly Father, You Are The Lord of The Harvest. Jesus, You Are The Vine and we are the branches. And we can do nothing without You. So Heavenly Father, we first say Thank You for adopting us into Your Kingdom Family, grafting us into The Vine, grafting us into fellowship with Christ that we might grow in Him and be able to bear much fruit. And now we take authority in Jesus’ name, and we rebuke the works of the flesh, adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings. For we know we cannot inherit the kingdom of God with these things in our lives. In Jesus’ name, we also rebuke the spirit of schisms, division, fear, lying, pride, strife, debate, and gossip in our homes, in our families, on our jobs and in the church. We command these spirits to go now in Jesus’ name. Holy Spirit reveal and remove every hindrance and obstacle to our spiritual growth and development, so that we may grow and bear much fruit in Jesus’ name. Lord, make us effective witnesses in Your Kingdom for Your glory. Equip us to know and walk with all the fruit of the spirit in Jesus’ name, so sinners might be persuaded to give their lives to Christ Jesus, and enjoy all the blessings of favor and fellowship You have for the saints. Heavenly Father, we thank You and praise You today for the present harvest You have already sent to our church, and the new harvest of souls You are sending and adding to UVCF Church this year. For You, Oh God desire to see Your house filled in Jesus name.

And so we speak into the atmosphere by faith. We confess by faith the new harvest of souls is coming our way. A new harvest coming from the North, South, East, and the West in Jesus’ name. The new harvest is being drawn by the love of God. The new harvest is hearing and receiving the good news about Jesus Christ, receiving the gospel of The Kingdom of God, and walking in God’s love and receiving deliverance for them in Jesus name. We pray the new harvest is making Jesus Christ their personal Savior and Lord. We confess the members of UVCF Church are being filled with the Holy Spirit, walking by faith, living in the power of the spirit and manifesting all the fruit of the spirit and growing on purpose. They are being discipled effectively, to grow and mature in Christ, uniting with the saints, as we all increase more and more in the revelation knowledge of Jesus Christ. We speak by faith, God is adding and planting so many new souls at UVCF Church that we need more room to receive them all. We confess those who are not of us cannot stay, and those who are of us shall remain with us in Jesus’ name. We confess the new harvest of souls God is adding are connected, and firmly rooted in their faith in God through the knowledge of Christ Jesus. We decree and declare that those God has planted at UVCF Church, no person, no thing, and no devil in hell shall be able to remove them from their set place in Jesus’ name. For they are receiving the revelation of Jesus Christ, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against them. We confess the new harvest has a fresh passion for serving in the Kingdom of God, and they delight in doing The Lord’s work in Jesus’ name. We confess the new harvest God is sending are faithful, honorable, humble, lovers, givers, ready to be anointed, gifted, talented, spiritually hungry and thirsty, servants, students who enjoy studying the word of God, and ready to share in this tremendous labor of love, where the yoke is easy, and the burden is light in Jesus’ name.

Heavenly Father, we thank You that You had purpose and plan for our lives before we joined the church, and we have joy and peace in our hearts knowing all things work together for our good as we live in Your purpose. Heavenly Father, we love You and Thank You for the present grace and privilege You have given us to do this great work. And now Lord, we ask by faith, for a greater measure of faith and grace so we are all equipped to do greater works this year, to edify and encourage Your people in Jesus’ name. Lord, our hearts are open to receive the new level of grace for the new, greater harvest to come. For this, we say Thank You Heavenly Father. We give You all the praise, all the glory & honor for these blessings, we confess and declare now by faith, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
