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 8th – Our Intellectual Lives: We’re Creating a Healthy Mindset
Read: Colossians 3:12-17
Surrender what you read, listen to, watch, and think about to the captivity of King Jesus. (If we grow our capacity to see the power, ability, desire, and scope of God’s will and whim, we will be better enabled to step forward by faith when King Jesus prompts us to do something bigger by faith!)
Ask God these three questions and listen throughout your day for His responses:
• Am I focused on Your thoughts?
• Am I considering Your guidance?
• Am I believing Your abilities?
Pray for the expansion of your mindset with these words … “Holy One, I realize that all too often I let my mind wander and waste. I put screens in front of me instead of choosing to challenge my thinking, to stretch my mind, to imagine God-sized possibilities, to consider what could be greater for Your glory, and to think the larger possibilities You desire for my life. Work with me as I choose to expand my mindset 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!
