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)
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 4th – Our Family Lives: We’re Creating a Launching Platform for Ministry …
Read: Matthew 10:16-39
Surrender your priorities so you place your wife or husband second behind God and your family third behind your wife or husband. (How we love each other inside our family will become the catapult to the expansion of our love for others outside of our family.)
Ask God these three questions and listen throughout your day for His responses:
• (If married) Is my spouse my greatest priority behind You, Lord? (Or if single) Am I remaining pure and focused on serving God as my Father?
• (If you have children) Am I nurturing love and faith in my children to Your satisfaction, Lord? (Or if don’t have children) Am I speaking life, hope, and faith into the children within my extended family?
• Am I honoring my parents (Whether they are alive or deceased) with my actions and attitudes?
Pray for the expansion of your genuine love with these words, “Lord, cause me to learn to express sacrificial love inside my family where relationships are real and often raw SO THAT I can love friends and even foes with Your love 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!
