Day 21 • Fasting & Prayer

Haggai 2:9, The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.

Heavenly Father, You Are Our Great Master Builder. And according to Your word, if You don’t build the house, all the labor is in vain. And so today, we humble ourselves to the Master plans You have for our personal lives, for us as collective members of the body of Christ, and for our church ministries. Lord we declare Your plans are perfect. And because we want to see Your greater glory operating in us and in our church, we invite Your presence and ask that Your anointing be present for destroying in all of our ministries at UVCF Church, in Jesus’ name. Lord bring us all into agreement with Your perfect will, and desire for every ministry foundation to be fully anchored in the word of God, and every action plan be fully aligned with Your purpose. Lord we submit to Your blueprint for our success, and we glorify Your Holy Name. Heavenly Father in Jesus’ name, we thank You for every blessing You have in store for us to receive this year. We delight in serving You with gladness. And we ask in Jesus’ name that You bless our pastors, leaders, facilitators, coordinators, volunteers, all who serve and shall serve in ministry at UVCF Church. Lord we thank You for the greater levels of humility we have experienced, that have produced in us an increased devotion to Your Word and prayer. Lord, we have a special yearning to be in Your presence, and we long to experience Your glory like never before. And so we commit ourselves to prayer. Heavenly Father, release a greater level of revelation that we might receive greater levels of faith, hope and love this year in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, we increase the level of our worship and faithfulness this year. Lord, pour out greater grace this year for greater vision, clarity, and communication, greater order, understanding and wisdom in Jesus name. Lord pour out Your Spirit upon us that every ministry might experience a greater anointing that we have not experienced before. Cause every spiritual gift in our church to grow, mature and flourish in Jesus’ name. We confess our expectation is rising to new levels for greater resourcefulness, practicality and spiritual competence, more grace and favor for greater levels of creativity, innovation and problem-solving, for higher levels in You God, as we grow in Jesus’ name. Lord cause us to find that place of humility where your grace and favor rests upon us each year, that Your power may work in us and through us, that curses are broken, yokes are destroyed, so people are saved, delivered, healed and set free, and that You alone are glorified in Jesus’ name. Lord, we Thank You now for the instructions You have given us so all our ministries, from the young to the old, may be a blessing to them all this year. Holy Spirit anoint the prayer warriors and intercessors in our church in Jesus’ name. And we speak blessings over the senior leaders of UVCF Church, the ministers, deacons, leaders, coordinators for every ministry, youth ministries, young adult ministries, women and men’s ministries, hospitality and service ministries, music ministry, audio, visual, technology and media ministries, social media ministries, our in-reach and outreach ministries, and all ministries that will be added for Your glory in Jesus’ name. We pray Your presence be in every church service and every revival in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, we ask that Your blessings be on our properties, and let every room be filled with Your glory, every instrument be used for Your glory. We plead the blood of Jesus over event hosted an extended location in Jesus’ name. For we confess it all belongs to You in Jesus’ name. Because You Lord are The Builder of this house, we know we already have the victory now in Jesus’ name. So we give You all the praise, all the honor and glory for answered prayer. And we decree and declare by faith, all these blessings we have now in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Day 20 • Fasting & Prayer

Jeremiah 29:7, And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

Heavenly Father, You Are The Creator of Heaven and Earth. You Are The God of Every Nation and we stand in need of your blessings. Lord, You know the current state of this nation. You see all that is happening in this nation. Heavenly Father, the government of our nation is helpless without You Lord. Our legislators, senators, governors, mayors, are helpless without You Lord. You word says, Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Without You Oh God, this nation will not be able to stand against its enemies foreign and domestic. So Lord, according to Your word, we humble ourselves and pray, seeking Your face and turning from our wicked ways, that we may hear You speak from heaven, and that You might heal this land. Heavenly Father, we confess our sins. For we are a nation in reproach, and in need of Your help today. We confess and repent of our sins of disobedience, ignorance, irresponsibility, sins of commission and omission, as well as our lack of devotion to You God. We confess and repent for turning a blind eye to the needy and the oppressed, for allowing prejudice and racism to go without rebuke. We confess and repent for not protecting the homeless and helpless, for not defending the innocent, for not seeking justice, for favoring one racial ethnicity over another. We confess and repent for turning a blind eye to the approval of children who died in the womb, while innocent people were killed without justice. We confess and repent for idolizing politics over the government of heaven, for objectifying women, and emasculating men, for attempting to neutralize genders, for prioritizing materialism, money, fame and wealth, while those in need cried for help. 

Heavenly Father, because You have the power to make all things well, we pray now that you heal every city, in and around the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. We also pray that You heal the State of Texas, and bring healing to America that we might be able to unite in Jesus’ name. We rebuke the spirits of anger, hate, jealousy, envy, murder, and all institutions of racism in this country in Jesus name. 

Heavenly Father, we pray You restore peace in our nation. From the east coast to the west coast. From the southern border to the northern border of America, we ask that You send peace in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, because You set up kings and princes, we ask that You touch the heart of leaders all across this nation, who are currently in positions of leadership. Lord, You know how to remove those who are not in agreement with Your perfect will and how to set up new leaders in authority who will honor Your Holy Name. Lord, we ask that You send the Moses, the Daniels and Esthers who possess the humility, integrity and character, who are filled with the Holy Spirit, full of faith, wisdom, and are anointed and appointed for such a time as this. Lord protect them as they fulfill their Kingdom purpose and assignments in the earth. Lord, renew their strength and give them grace that is sufficient for enduring persecution in these last and evil days. Lord give them the boldness and courage to confront wickedness with faith and righteousness tenacity, that You may give them the appropriate platforms to speak truth to power in Jesus’ name. Give them an unusual level of perseverance that outlasts the stubbornness of wicked people in Jesus’ name. For we decree and declare peace in our cities and in our nation now in Jesus’ name. 

Heavenly Father, we pray for the President, his wife, children and family. Lord, we ask that You protect him so that he may live to see and know that You Are King of kings and Lord of lords. Lord bless their families and the decision makers and counselors surrounding them. Lord reveal that You Are The God of Miracles. Let them know You Are The God Who Shuts the Lion’s Mouth, and Who Protects Your True Prophets. Heavenly Father, we give You permission to turn the heart of the king so Your word is fulfilled and Your Name is glorified throughout the United States of America in Jesus’ name. Lord we Thank You for interrupting all politics as usual to awaken us all spiritually in Jesus name. For You Are GOD, and there is none beside YOU. Lord we ask that You raise up righteous leaders and place them in positions of authority in government as well as in the business arena and marketplace in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, send the Deborah’s of our generation in Jesus’ name. Lord we pray You send righteous military men and women, righteous police chiefs and law enforcement officers, righteous judges and lawyers in the courtroom, righteous city councilmen and women, righteous mayors and governors, senators and legislators, doctors, principals, teachers and others who are called by Your name into the professional workplace in Jesus’ name to let the light of Christ shine in the world. 

Lord bless our military men and women abroad who serve and protect our righteous causes in other countries day and night. Refresh them and give them the grace they need to continue protecting and serving faithfully. Strengthen them so their hearts don’t fail in the face of difficulty, when responses are slow, when they face uncertainty on the battlefield, Lord send Your angels to remind them The Lord Is their Shepherd and they Shall Not Want, You Make them to lie down in green pastures, You lead them beside still waters, You restore their soul, You lead them in paths of righteousness for Your name sake. Yeah, though they walk through the valley of the shadow of death, they will fear no evil, for You Art With Them, Your Rod and Staff comfort them, You prepare a table before them in the presence of their enemies, You anoint their head with oil and cause their cup to run over. Cause goodness and mercy to follow them all the days of their life that they might dwell in the house of the Lord forever. 

Now Heavenly Father, You said, where sin did abound, grace did much more abound. And so Lord, we pray for Your love to abide in us and abound in us this year greatly in Jesus’ name. We ask for a supernatural love increase and overflow in Jesus’ name. Lord we speak love into the atmosphere. We decree and declare Phileo Love, brotherly love and acts of kindness are about to go viral in this country this year in Jesus’ name. We decree and declare the love of God is so attractive, tv, newspaper, talk radio, music entertainment, social media platforms, podcasts and all industry headlines are changing across the country to tell of God’s love for His people in Jesus’ name. By faith, we decree and declare this Love Takeover is happening in our cities, in our state, and across this country, and our children’s children will know about it. Heavenly Father, we thank You for pouring out Your Spirit, releasing visions and dreams, giving hope to the hopeless, and shifting this country into its next season of faith, hope and love, in Jesus’ name. For this, Heavenly Father, we bless Your Holy Name. We give You all the glory, and we give You all the honor and praise. For Thine Is The Kingdom, and the power and glory, both now and forever. We ask and believe all these things by faith in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Day 19 • Fasting & Praying

Matt.13:57-58, And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town and in his own home.” And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith. 

Heavenly Father, You Are The God of Miracles. Lord You have the power to perform miracles, signs and wonders every day that cannot be explained. Now Lord, because we stand in need of miracles and deliverance today, I confess any unbelief that has stood in the way of me receiving Your miraculous power at work in my life today. Lord, I receive Your forgiveness in Jesus’ name. I repent and take authority now in Jesus’ name, renouncing all unbelief, disobedience and I resist every demonic suggestion, question or thought from the enemy that has kept me from saying Yes to the miracles of deliverance and healing that God has for me. For I confess and believe now by faith that my God does exceeding abundantly, above all that we could ever ask or think. I confess all things are possible for me if I simply believe in Jesus’ name. And now, because I choose to believe by faith, Lord I give You permission to do the supernatural in my life. Heavenly Father, I thank You for the working of miracles happening this year in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, I give You permission to work miracles in my mind, body and soul. In Jesus’ name, I pray for complete mental health and soundness of mind. I thank You Lord that my mind is being freed from the cycle of thinking of past sins and any other circumstances that I have allowed to keep me going in circles. Lord, work the miracle of removing those hindering thoughts that I should have forgotten about because You’ve already thrown them in the sea of forgetfulness to remember them no more. And I take authority in Jesus’ name, pressing toward the mark, for the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus. Lord, we give You permission to work miracles in our physical bodies that doctors cannot explain in Jesus’ name. Lord, miraculously restore bones and bone marrow. Put bones and joints back in their proper places, and cause the bones to receive strength. Because Your Name is Elohim, You can create new bone, new tissue, new liver, new kidneys, new eyes, new prostates for men, new breasts for women. Elohim, we say Yes to Your miracle working power today. I believe by faith that you are re-inserting cartilage and tissue between the bones today in Jesus’ name. Lord, I ask in faith for You to touch me from the crown of my head, to the soles of my feet, and remove all infections in the brain and wherever they may be in our bodies. Remove all viruses, all abnormal growths, all tumors, all forms of cancer wherever they may be in Jesus’ name. Lord I ask that You miraculously regulate blood pressure and iron counts to be at the right levels so I can function with a higher energy level this year, and be able to fulfill Your purpose and assignments with maximum efficiency in Jesus’ name. Lord, heal my body of eczema and cause the skin to return smooth like babies skin. Lord touch my eyes so I see the way You created me to see. Lord, correct all physical deformities in the neck, spine, back, hips, legs, ankles and feet now in Jesus’ name. Lord cause the lame to walk right, the deaf to hear well, the dumb to speak with clear articulation in Jesus’ name. Lord, heal bodies of all forms of sickness and diseases now in Jesus’ name. Heal our stomachs, guts and digestive tracts in Jesus’ name. Remove all unhealthy bacteria in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, I Thank You in advance because You are able to do miracles that bring all things into proper alignment with Your will for my physical prosperity in Jesus name. I also thank You for the miracle of opening the eyes of those who are spiritually blind, those who cannot see Jesus. Heavenly Father, I pray You reveal Jesus to my unsaved family, friends and loved ones so they are drawn by Your love to receive the gift of eternal life that is in Christ Jesus. As I intercede for them like Abraham did for Sodom and Gomorrah, I ask that You send Your heavenly angels to snatch them out of darkness an md into Your marvelous light in Jesus name. I pray Lord of Hosts that You humble them so they can hear Your voice in Jesus’ name. And I say thank You Lord for leading and guiding me in paths of righteousness, to walk by faith in every season and through every season of triumph and trials, through seasons of recovery, and into our seasons of complete healing in Jesus name. Heavenly Father, bless me with the grace I need so I understand how to honor You as I walk into the destiny You have prepared for me, walking with wisdom and understanding, able to hold onto and maintain the blessings beyond the miracles You do for me, as I live the blessed life this year in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, You Are The Miracle Worker. I say Thank You, Elohim. For You Are My Creator, Redeemer and Miracle Worker. I exalt Your Holy Name. And I give you all the praise, all the glory and all the honor for these things being done in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Day 18 • Fasting & Praying

1 Corinthians 14:12, Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

Heavenly Father, You Are The God of every good and perfect gift. And we thank You for the spiritual gifts You have given us so the church may be built up and edified. Lord, we confess and repent for neglecting the spiritual gifts you have given us. And today, we commit in our hearts to being good and faithful stewards of our gifts. Lord, we thank You that our gifts are making room for us, opening doors that no man can shut, and blessing the saints and people in our world. And now Lord we confess by faith that this is the year and time appointed that You are revealing spiritual gifts, purpose and assignments to the believers in Jesus’ name. You are making known to us the purpose for which You created us, that we all may operate in our gifts, function with the anointing of the Holy Spirit, fulfill divine mandates, being encouraged in our hearts and thoroughly furnished in the spirit to build up the church and encourage our families, friends, and loved ones in righteousness in Jesus’ name. Lord we ask that You teach us and make us aware of all the spiritual gifts we have at our disposal at UVCF Church for our personal and spiritual growth, maturity, health, well-being, and overall prosperity in Jesus’ name. Lord, grant us wisdom and good understanding concerning every spiritual gifts that we may be able to operate in love and that our gifts are seasoned with grace this year. Holy Spirit, continue to arrest our hearts and minds this year from all distractions, so we have the mental alertness and readiness we need to function in our gifts on a higher level this year in Jesus’ name. Holy Spirit, give us good understanding of the blessings of the five fold Ministry gifts of the Apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher. Holy Spirit, teach us and equip us concerning all the spiritual gifts, the word of wisdom, word of knowledge, the gift of faith, the gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues, as well as with the gifts of helps, and governments in Jesus’ name. Lord increase our understanding of the gifts of administration, craftsmanship, exhortation, giving, hospitality, interpretation of dreams, interpretation of tongues, leadership, mercy, serving, simplicity, wisdom and worship. Lord give us to understand Your liberty concerning our gifts and the order You have for when we operate in the church. We thank You Lord in advance for gift impartation and activation happening this year. We pray Lord that You take us from gift meditation to gift activation this year. Lord, teach us how to wait on our calling, and give us the courage to answer the call and say Yes, when You call us. Holy Spirit instruct us as to what we need to do, so we can grow and excel in our spiritual gifts, and be a blessing to our church, the saints, our families, our children, our friends, as well as those You call us to share the gospel with in the world. Holy Spirit, help us to exercise our gifts and walk in the fruit of the spirit daily in Jesus’ name, that people may see the love of Christ in everything we do. Lord we want to be filled with Your Spirit, that there may be a holy inspiration filling the atmosphere at UVCF Church, that there be a great stirring up of the gifts, that our hearts may always be on fire for You God, and that we minister in with a fresh anointing that compels people of all ages and walks of life, to listen and take heed to the gospel of the Kingdom of heaven, that they might receive the good news that Jesus saves. And for all these things, we bless Your Holy Name oh God. We thank You for Your loving-kindness. And we give You all the praise, glory, honor now as we believe it all done in Jesus’ name. Amen.
