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 7th – Our Social Lives: We’re Building a Supportive Community Around Us
Read: Luke 9:23-27
Surrender to drawing people close to you to as God commands. (As the Godhead lives in community, we were designed for the same so as to thrive, flourish, and expand farther and farther.)
Ask God these three questions and listen throughout your day for His responses:
• Who should I reach out to and connect with each week with Your love? (Constantly show me people and suggest names to me this year)
• Am I choosing a lifestyle that focuses predominantly upon having a good time with others or am I seeking to stir them up to love and good works?
• Do I take the time to deepen relationships to get past the surface frivolity and into the gritty world of honesty and transparency?
Pray for the expansion of your supportive community with these words, “I can’t do things alone, Lord Jesus. Life is hard apart from good, solid friends I can depend on. This year I am going the be that intentional friend who sticks closer than a brother to more and more people 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!
