FAST AND PRAY

We are getting ready to move to our new sanctuary. This is a time of transition. We need God more than ever! Next week there shall be daily fasting and prayers in our church. Please, fast from solid food and drink only water or fruit juice. The fast starts daily by 6am. The fast ends with daily prayers at 6 pm. If you are nursing a baby or you are not able to do like this, I advise you to still join us to fast until 12 or 3 pm. Do it!  We expect great things!

We shall do this spiritual exercise as individuals, as families and as a church. We pray that the transition to the new facility will be easy. The Holy Spirit will lead and empower us! There shall be no loss, no accidents!  We pray for revival! We pray that the Holy Spirit revives our hearts, our families and our church. Out of that overflow, there shall be revival in the city of Warri and from here, unto the nations. We pray that God will draw people to Christ to be saved. We pray that the Holy Spirit will ignite the hearts of the believers to volunteer in different ministries, to glorify God and humbly serve men. We pray for more gifts of the Holy Spirit in our midst!

But more importantly, we desire to come boldly to the throne of grace and to fill heaven and earth with praise and worship. We declare the Jesus is beautiful! We declare that we are excited about God who is already moving in our midst. We pray for healing, deliverance and financial breakthrough! We pray that there shall be no more sickness in our midst! We pray for open doors, for good work opportunities for all, and especially for the believers. We pray that we shall move aggressively towards God’s plan and purpose in our lives. We pray that we remain humble and sensitive to the Holy Spirit even in the midst of prosperity!

We are praying for spiritual increase, maturity, fruitfulness, faithfulness and opportunities to serve God in different ministries! We pray for an increase in our hunger and thirst for the Word of God! We pray for MORE of Jesus in our lives! We pray that we shall be filled with the Holy Spirit and the righteousness of Christ! We are praying that the cross will work in our hearts and kill the flesh! We pray that our emotions will be stable and holy. We are praying for God to birth dreams in us, to revive our youth like the eagles.

We pray for financial breakthroughs, what to do in the future, what businesses to start, to have new ideas. We pray that God’s plan for us become clearer. We pray for miracles in our midst, the peculiar work of the Holy Spirt, for gifts money cannot buy and men cannot give or take away from us. We pray for peace and joy in our lives! We pray the singles marry well and happily!

We are praying for our marriages, for increase in our love for one another, se husbands and wives. That our homes will be godly homes and all who come in shall see Jesus! We pray for a greater desire to draw closer to God as couples. We are praying for our children, that they grow in God’s grace and secure in His love. We pray that they experience the anointing of the Holy Spirit even at this young age; that they love Jesus and choose to serve Jesus for the rest of their lives. We pray for their bodies, for mental and emotional health, for God’s provision for them. We are praying for God’s perfect will to be done in their lives!

Overall, we want to lift the name of Jesus high. We pray to be Jesus chasers with every part of who we are, to passionately desire to worship Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord!  God bless Father’s House Bible Church Warri Nigeria! Let the worship rise…

This is the Word of God for them who fast and pray: There shall be healings, protection, answered prayers, fresh testimonies, guidance; supernatural strength, satisfaction and joy!  To the glory of God! In Jesus name, amen!

“Your light shall break forth like the morning,

Your healing shall spring forth speedily,

And your righteousness shall go before you;

The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;

You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am….

Your light shall shine in the darkness,

And your darkness shall be as the noonday.

The Lord will guide you continually,

And satisfy your soul in drought,

And strengthen your bones;

You shall be like a watered garden,

And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail” (Is 58:8-11)
