40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 32 – Fearless

We fast because we are fixing our eyes on the one who loves us. We fast because we do not want to walk in fear. We fast, because we are asking the Lord to deliver us in our weaknesses. We fast, because we believe the Lord when he promises us to answer us and to give us breakthroughs. We fast, because God calls us to fast. We trust he knows what is best.

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 30- When You Fast- Rise Up Church!

In the sermon on the mount, Jesus teaches very clearly on prayer and fasting. Matthew 6:5-18 Prayer 5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in …

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 2 Watch!

There is one thing the disciples did not have at Gesthemane that we have. They did not have the indwelling Holy Spirit. They didn't have access to the power of God in their inner beings to strengthen their "inner man" for the arduous time they were walking in. Those who believe in Jesus have access to the store houses of the Spirit of God, since we are sealed with the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 1:13-14.) We can pray that God will build us up in our inner beings that Jesus will dwell in our hearts through faith. Ephesians 3:16-17 " I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith."

Dream About Pastors and Spiritual Leaders

This is a dream that my friend Denise was given in May- “After a day of fasting, praying and being in God's Word, the Lord gave me this vision in the middle of May. What I saw was this: An older man dressed in a gray/black suit with a white shirt was on his knees praying on his face. He was weeping and crying out to the Lord....”
