Our Foundation for Fasting and Prayer

“Jabez called on Israel’s God:
“If only you would greatly bless me and increase my territory.
May your power go with me to keep me from trouble,
so as not to cause me pain.”
And God granted his request.”
(1 Chronicles 4:10, CEB)

 

Week One:

Surrendering Everything For God-sized Expansion!

 (Each day, as you follow this schedule, we are recommending you ADD your own SPECIFIC prayer requests in each of the seven areas we are praying and fasting for.) 

January 5th – Our Career: We’re Using Our Profession to Declare Our Faith’s Possession

Read: Romans 12:1-2

Surrender your job and career path to God for evangelism. (The contacts we have and the long hours we spend at our jobs provide the relationships and opportunities to expand God’s Kingdom by sharing His love with those around us on a daily basis and share our faith in real-life situations.)

AskGod these three questions and listen throughout your day for His responses:

• Who’s hurting that I might comfort?
• Who’s discouraged that I might encourage?
• Who’s lost that I might shower with the love of Jesus?

Pray for the expansion of your career path with these words, “Lord Jesus, You placed me in this job to be a light in this darkness and a hope to the discouraged. Allow me to expand Your Kingdom with Your love and compassion. Help me to lead some people to surrender to King Jesus in 2020: Our Year of Expansion!” 

Be Specific. Now, pour out your heart to God for the things you are praying and fasting for. ESPECIALLY ask God to answer the three questions above!

 

A Year of Expansion!

We are excited about what God is doing and will do in 2020 in our lives. PLEASE take the time to share your experiences below as we step out by FAITH and trust God for greater EXPANSION in our lives!

More coming tomorrow! Stay alert for our next post!
