Corporate Prayer & Fasting

We are excited to inform you that our 21 day fast begins on January 6, 2020!

 As we stand on one accord, Pastor Jordan has provided the following fasting options and our prayer focus. Fast options for our 21 day fast: 

Prayer Agenda for 21 day fast  

There are several types of fasting. The one you choose is between you and God. He will honor your BEST SACRIFICE. Your decision to fast should be done under the supervision of a doctor or medical professional if you have health concerns.

Option 1: Full Fast - Drink only liquids (you establish the number of days). I will be doing a full fast for 21 days. Please keep me lifted up in prayer.

If you can’t commit to a full fast consider the following:

 

Option 2: The Daniel Fast - Eat no meat, no sweets and no bread. Drink water and juice. Eat fruits and vegetables.

Option 3: Partial Fast - A partial fast is from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm or from sun up to sundown. You can select from three types of fasting — a Full Fast, Daniel Fast or give up at least one item of food.

Daily Prayer List!  

(1) Pray that God would deliver his people from depression and oppression, casting every burden and care on our savior, Jesus Christ.

Psalms 55:22 (NKJV) “Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.”

(2) Pray that God break the yoke of Immorality and lasciviousness.

1 Corinthians 10:8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died.

Jesus called His disciples to resist the spirit of immorality (Matt. 5:27-30). He was not raising the standard of the Old Testament law but, explaining its original intention. In the seventh command, God was speaking of more than avoiding physical adultery, but also the spirit of immorality. The Pharisees taught that committing adultery only involved avoiding the physical act.

Matthew 5:27-30 You have heard that it was said to those of old, “You shall not commit adultery.” 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out...it is more profitable that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30 If your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off...for it is more profitable...than for your whole body to be cast into hell.

(3) Pray that God would break the carnal man so that the spiritual man can come forth in power.

Romans 8:6-7 (NKJV) “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.”

 (4) Pray that we take on the mind of Christ.

Philippians 2:5 (NKJV) “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.”

 (5) Pray that God will pour out His Spirit upon His people.

 Joel 2:28 (NKJV) "And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions.”

(6) Pray that the love of God would fill our hearts.

Matthew 22:37 (NKJV) Jesus said to him, “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.”

(7) Pray that God will transform us into the image of His SON (Jesus).

 2 Corinthians 3:18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate (think about) the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

(13) Pray that God would add faithful laborers. 

Luke 10:2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

(14) Pray for deliverance for those suffering any form of bondage, both human and demonic in origin. 

Matthew 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

(16) Pray that God's people wage war in the Spirit declaring the uncompromising truth of his word.
