2020 Week of Fasting & Prayer
In the Bible, we observe the people of God fasting for a variety of reasons:
• They were facing a crisis
• They were seeking God's protection and deliverance
• They had been called to repentance and renewal
• They were asking God for guidance
• They were humbling themselves in worship
As we begin a new year, let us come together in unity to Fast & Pray for 2020.
SUNDAY- JANUARY 5
Strengthen in me, O Lord, the commitment to regularly talk with You and hear from You through prayer.
Jeremiah 33:3 "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."
MONDAY- JANUARY 6
As I present needs and concerns to You, O Lord, may I be content to leave the results to You.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
TUESDAY- JANUARY 7
Help me understand, O Lord, that the power of prayer is not so much in what I pray about, but to whom I pray.
Matthew 6:6 "But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
WEDNESDAY- JANUARY 8
O Lord, may I hunger after, receive, and use the powerful prayer language available through the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Romans 8:26-27 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
THURSDAY- JANUARY 9
Help me, O Lord, to understand that prayer is my personal responsibility, not something someone else can do for me.
Mark 11:24 "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
FRIDAY- JANUARY 10
O Lord, increase my sensitivity to divine appointments to pray for others, conveying to them Your love, grace, and power.
Philippians 4:6 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."
SATURDAY- JANUARY 11
May my present and eternal relationship with You, O Lord, be strengthened by continually keeping the line open with You day by day.
1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."
