Our Foundation for Fasting and Prayer
“Jabez called on Israel’s God:
“If only you would greatly bless me and increase my territory.
May your power go with me to keep me from trouble,
so as not to cause me pain.”
And God granted his request.”
(1 Chronicles 4:10, CEB)
Surrendering Everything For God-sized Expansion!
(Each day, as you follow this schedule, we are recommending you ADD your own SPECIFIC prayer requests in each of the seven areas we are praying and fasting for.)
January 3rd – Our Physical Lives: We’re Connecting With God Through the Temple of the Holy Spirit
Read: 1 Corinthians 6:1-20
Surrender your body and spirit to God (1 Corinthians 6.19-20) (Living a pure life opens the Holy Spirit to be able to use us to the fullness of God’s will while a lifestyle less than pure reduces and diminishes His expansion.)
Ask God these three questions and listen throughout your day for His responses:
• Is there anything I do that disturbs You, Holy Spirit?
• What would You like me to change in my lifestyle, Holy Spirit?
• How can I bring more honor to God through my body and spirit?
Pray for the expansion of your health, strength, and purity with these words, “Lord, I can’t be effective in serving You if my health is poor and my lifestyle dishonors You. So, I am asking You to guide me into healthier and holy choices SO THAT the Spirit of God can magnify Your name and fame through me in greater and greater ways in 2020: Our Year of Expansion!”
Be Specific. Now, pour out your heart to God for the things you are praying and fasting for. ESPECIALLY ask God to answer the three questions above!
A Year of Expansion!
We are excited about what God is doing and will do in 2020 in our lives. PLEASE take the time to share your experiences below as we step out by FAITH and trust God for greater EXPANSION in our lives!
More coming tomorrow! Stay alert for our next post!
Yesterday but one after sharing the word of the day about our physical lives and how God wants to use our bodies for his glory as much as our spirit and soul. Yesterday one of the minister’s that hard attended the meeting called me appreciating the word worked for her!! To God be the glory.
