40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 39 – Stay the Course- Finding Truth in the Middle of Chaos

Paul tells the people that the rapture or the catching away of the church will not happen until the rebellion occurs and the Man of Lawlessness is revealed. I believe we have been in the middle of a the great falling away for several years now. Left and right people are experiencing what they call "deconstruction of faith." Soon, I believe we will see the unveiling of the Man of Lawlessness. The church will see it.

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 31 -Afflict the Soul

To afflict the soul means to fast. Every Jewish person knows that is the meaning of "afflict the soul." What is the soul? The soul is the part of the human being that is made up of the mind, the will and the emotions. The soul is the part of us that needs to submit to the Lord. The soul is the part that will go it's own way. The soul is the part that can be wounded or can be encouraged.

In the sermon on the mount, Jesus teaches very clearly on prayer and fasting.

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 28 – Pray for Our Pastors and Teachers

Your fasting matters. Don't let the devil tell you it won't do anything! It will tear down his kingdom and build up the Lord's kingdom. God uses humble men and women of God to do his will. When we fast and pray we include God in the relationship, instead of trying to do everything ourselves without him. We cannot win this battle apart from prayer and fasting, and when we do, it may look way different than we anticipate. This is why we must press into the throne of grace. God will give us strength in our inner beings to walk with Christ in our hearts through faith. (Eph 3)

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 26 – Here I Am, Lord

Living in times where the fabric of our nation is unraveling, I frequently go to places of self-reflection in prayer. Clearly, the Lord has lifted his hand of protection from our land. “Lord, I know the big things that displease you- things like abortion, greed and perversions. (And this is in the church.) But, what …

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 22- Birth Pangs

Friends, when the kingdom of God is ready to be birthed, those who walk through it will experience things that they never thought in a million years they would ever experience. But the birth pangs bring about the birth. The birth is the kingdom of God- something we haven't seen with our eyes or held with our hands or heard with our ears. But, what is coming is so glorious we cannot even imagine it.
