THEME: FASTING IS AN INDISPENSABLE SPIRITUAL COMPONENT
TEXT: Proverbs 22:6
“Sanctify ye a fast . “(Joel 1:14)
Fasting for a true Christian believer is indispensable and non-negotiable if he wants to move the hand of God. Little wonder, the people of old organized different fasting programs to move the hand of God. Unfortunately, many believers do not consider fasting necessary. Rather, they feed themselves fat. They have lost the power for prayer, supplication and intercession. They have become virtually empty. They have created opportunity for the business of prophecy and vision to thrive. Prophets and prophetesses are exploiting the people, collecting their money and land documents.
Wake up from your sleeping and slumbering. Sanctify a fast! Lose your spiritual obesity; attain that spiritual shape and size that will make you become sensitive to the things of the spirit and move the hand of God. The battle before you is not physical, but spiritual. That is why the Bible says, “Put on the whole armour of God,” Fasting is one spiritual requirement to catapult someone to a higher level.
Sing spirit filled songs unto God and thank Him for everything He has accomplished in your life and then take the following prayer points.
Prayer Points :
1. Every spirit behind sleeping and slumbering; be uprooted out of my life, in Jesus’ name. Give me the enabling grace to live a spirit-filled life, in Jesus’ name. I ask for grace to fast and pray at all times, in Jesus name.
2. I command spiritual deadness in my life to give way to life in the Holy Ghost, in Jesus’ name. By the power in the name of Jesus, I command spiritual obesity to be shed, in Jesus name.
3. I cancel spiritual malnourishment, kwashiorkor and stagnation in my life, in Jesus’ name. Any spirits of gluttony (over-feeding) living inside of me; catch fire, in Jesus’ name.
I ask for higher grace for righteousness, holy living, faith, sanctification. zeal, consecration and commitment, in Jesus’ name.
