3 DAYS FASTING AND PRAYER FOR AUGUST 21st, 22nd & 23rd 2020



THEME: "YOU ARE MY HIDING PLACE”


SCRIPTURE THEME: Psalm 32:7 “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”


The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear or read this scripture is the song that I so dearly love and sing often in the spirit, “YOU ARE MY HIDING PLACE”. When I hear this worship song it takes me to that secret place with God instantly. See God desires us to go to this secret place, for safety from the trappings of this world. The lyrics to the song goes like this, “You are my Hiding Place. You always fill my heart, with songs of deliverance, whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You, I will trust in you, let the weak say I am strong in the strength of My Lord.” Powerful lyrics and I want to expand on this a little more today.


HE IS OUR SAFE HIDING PLACE, SO WE CAN FEEL SAFE AT ALL TIMES: “You hide them in the shelter of your presence, safe from those who conspire against them. You shelter them in your presence, far from accusing tongues.” (Psalm 31:20)


WE ARE SURE TO BE PROTECTED IN OUR HIDING PLACE: “For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.” (Psalm 27:5). You can be sure to be protected.


WE HAVE NO TROUBLES IN HIDING PLACE SAINTS: “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” (Psalm 32:7). The word hiding here is the same as Jonathan used in 1 Samuel 19:2, telling David to hide from Saul. It is a safe house from all predators or anyone wanting to harm us. It is a place where the enemy cannot find you, for you are secure.


WE ARE COMFORTED IN THE HIDING PLACE: “I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.” (Psalm 61:4) The verse paints the picture of us of young birds taking comfort in the mother bird’s wings or like a child finding comfort in their parents embrace. God want to embrace us.


WE RUN TO THE STRONGTOWER IN THE HIDING PLACE: “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalm 91:1). What safer place is there to be than in the shelter of the Almighty God as our strong tower?


WE ARE PROTECTED IN THE HIDING PLACE: “You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.” (Psalm 119:114). God put his shield around us and protects us from attack from the enemy.


WE ARE INTIMATE WITH GOD IN THE HIDING PLACE: “My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely. (Song of Songs 2:14). Here is the reminder that we are not hidden alone but hidden with Christ where there is intimacy. Where we can listen to His voice and look upon his face.


These words bring great comfort to my soul knowing that in the midst of all the troubles of this world even within these end-time hour He said be not troubled the end is not yet” (Matthew 24:5) The secret hiding place with God is the safest place in the world to be. A place you go to get strength and faith, and love and hope anytime, night or day. He is our Hiding Place and He is there, He protects us, and there He gives us songs that remind us of how He will always be there for us, for those we love, and for all who turn to Him and seek Him.


I hope you have such a place today as you make time to seek God this August weekend, for it is a time dwell with God in that place where the Lord can keep us safe and secure. He invites us all to come to that Hiding Place. Take time to seek Him this weekend with an open heart, for He is always there, and the door is always open to those that want to press in more to God.

This month of August I want to encourage all Christians on social media that want breakthrough and restoration to Fast & Pray along with us this month’s 3 day fast.


This is an event anybody can partake of anywhere around the world in your home, church, friend’s house, in the village or in the city etc with the main purpose of getting people to repent and turn back to God on the same calendar day through fasting with the help of prayer taken from 2 Chronicles 7:14, that it will build awareness of the need to pray for your local church. Though we are on different timelines I encourage you to just follow the dates for your respective countries.


Date: AUGUST 21st, 22nd & 23rd 2020


Fasting Days: Friday, Saturday, Sunday


Fasting Type: Fasting from food but drinking water or fluids for those that can. You are welcome to break the fast each evening and start again either after meal (6am-6pm) or you can go straight through.


Fasting Teaching - https://youtu.be/DFWacd-8ShY https://youtu.be/DFWacd-8ShY


PRACTICAL TIPS FOR FASTING:


1. Avoid medical and even natural herbal drugs. However, if you are under medication, these should only be withdrawn upon the advice of your doctor.


2. Limit your physical activity and exercise. If you have a workout routine, adjust it accordingly.


3. Rest as much as you can if needed be.

4. Maintain an attitude of prayer throughout the day. Intercede for your family, pastors, church, nation, missionaries & world missions, etc.

5. Drink plenty of clean water if you are joining the water fast.


6. As your body adjusts, be prepared for temporary bouts of physical weakness as well as a greater likelihood of impatience, irritability, and anxiety.


FASTING HELPS US BECOME SENSITIVE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT.


“While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” (Acts 13:2)


When we deny our natural cravings, our spiritual antennas become more attuned. We become more sensitive to His voice as we divest ourselves of worldly distractions. We are better able to focus on God and submit to His will. This opens the door for more of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.


FASTING BRINGS REVIVAL.


“. . . in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.” (Daniel 9:2,3)


Fasting helps us prevail in prayer and intercession. Daniel understood that Israel was headed for destruction. He also knew that in times like these, there is only one recourse—intercession through praying and fasting. Throughout human history, God has brought revival and delivered nations from destruction in response to prayer and fasting.


FASTING IS AN ACT OF HUMILITY AND CONSECRATION.


“. . . I put on sackcloth and humbled myself with fasting . . .” (Psalm 35:13)


Humility results in the grace of God (James 4:6). When we humble ourselves in prayer, we have

instant access to the heart of God. As we deny ourselves as an act of consecration, we are

better able to exercise self-control over our emotions and desires.


Matthew 6:9-13 "In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.11 Give us this day our daily bread.12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen."


Day 1 – GOD'S GUIDANCE

Date: 21st of August 2020


Scripture Text: Matthew 6:13 “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”


I want you to take some time now and open your bible to read these scriptures below:

Heb 4:14-16, 2:18

Prov 3:1-26

John 15:1-17 Gal 5:13-26

Eph 6:10-18


“The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.” 1 Cor 10:13


When Jesus taught us to pray this, he knew what he was talking about. (Luke 4)


In reality Jesus is asking us that we pray for the same power he accessed in the wilderness – the power that the Spirit provides to resist, to avoid, to flee, to have discernment , to be able to be in the world, but not of the world. Temptations do come, (appetites, need for approval, ambition) but we don’t have to yield to them. When we do find ourselves in any temptation or trial, call out to God – PRAY! – He will show us the way through anything.


Heb 2:18 tells us that Jesus who was tempted in everything as were are, and is now able to aid us who are being tempted. God led Jesus into the wilderness, where he was tempted, and overcame. Because of that, he not only sympathizes with us, but he has ability to aid us gain the spiritual strength needed to overcome every temptation.


The key to gaining strength is allowing the Spirit to continually transform and lead you. Gal 5 tells us that when we daily pursue the God honouring desires produced by the spirit in us, instead of giving in to our selfishness, we overcome the flesh allowing us to do what we were originally created to do – live lives that glorify God. Avoiding sinning is not our goal, it is following the spirits leading. Walking in the spirit is the constant daily practice Jesus modelled for us. When we are abiding in his Word, yield to his pruning, respond to his leading’s day-in-day-out, it will produce Godly fruit. Fruit does not simply appear; it grows over time when watered and fed daily.


As we rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to change our motivations, and conform our thoughts, feelings and habits, we’ll discover not only how to resist temptations, but we will invited into new adventures to see others be set free.


Key: You’re not alone. God put you in His family – to help strengthen us and equip us. We need brothers, sisters, spiritual leaders to equip us (Eph 4), to hold us accountable, and train us in the ways of the Spirit. Disciples never walk alone.


Ponder: Read how Paul presents the conflict of our old & new nature in Rom 7:14-8:17. What was is his answer to the dilemma? What role did the Holy Spirit play?


Read Matt 26:41 – what was Jesus warning us about? What is the answer Jesus provided to overcome this power? What temptations seem to have more power in your life right now?


Question: Do you have someone, or a group of people you have asked to be a spiritual accountability in your journey to defeat any ongoing persistent temptations? God wants to surround you with people of character.


PRAYER FOCUS DAY 1:


Pray through Eph 6:10-18 – pray out loud the word of God, for it’s the sword you need. Intercede (pray for others), who are facing challenging temptations. The Whole Armor of God is vital to put on each day saints, so learn to make this a memory verse.


Ephesians 6:10-18 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the [a]wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [b]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints”


Ask the Lord for that refreshing wind of Holy Spirit to blow upon you – decree that you are being given new strength (emotionally, spiritually and physically)


Decree and believe that as you fast and pray, your passion will return – to see what God wants to reveal to you, to hear what the Lord is whispering to you, to move with the rhythm of Holy Spirit


Decree that every broken wall, every stolen or lost moment, will be restored unto you


Pray that the restoration and revival will be in EVERY area you need it in – that there will be no area in your life/ministry missed


Decree that exponential growth will occur in the body of Christ and the finances to prosper


Pray for a new and great manifestation of God’s miracle power in your life, Narrow Path Ministries, Your church, and Your nation. Seek the Lord for miracles, signs, and wonders that will amaze the people and bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ.


Pray that God’s healing power would come into your life in all of its fullness. Ask that He would heal you from sickness and disease, and from every hurt, brokenness, and defeat. (3 John vs. 2; Isaiah 53:5)


There are hidden strongholds that are blocking your progress in life. Pray against those strongholds. Ask God to reveal them to you so that they can be broken (2 Corinthians 10:3-5). Name the specific stronghold in your life and family and command it to be broken in Jesus’ name.


Pray for Robert Clancy YouTube Channel to grow and reach those in need of ministry, without any more hinderance coming against the channel being taken down in Jesus mighty name.


Pray that the remaining of August 2020 that will spill over into the remaining of the year for breakthroughs that God will cause you to walk upon high places - in the places of honour, promotion and elevation in the Mighty Name of Jesus.


Pray for Narrow Path Ministries (Rev Robert & Aida Clancy) and your church that God will supply exceeding, abundantly above all we could ask or think. Lord any spirit of sabotage that is coming against this ministry be exposed and cast back into the pit of hell in Jesus mighty name! Pray that every financial need will be met and that we will have more than enough to carry out the vision for this month of August and beyond. Pray that doors will continue to open in latter 2020-2021 to reach nations that are ready for the gospel and hungry for revival.


Day 2 – GOD'S PROTECTION


Date: 22nd of August 2020


Scripture Reading: Matthew 6:13 “And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.”


I want you to take some time now and open your bible to read these scriptures below:

Psalm 119:133

John 17:1-25

1 Pet 5:8, James 4:7

Acts 4:24-31


“Holy Father, you have given me [Jesus} your name; now protect them by the power of your name so that they will be united just as we are….. I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth. I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message….” John 17:11-20


In Jesus prayer (John 17), we discover he is interceding for us! For protection, to be kept safe from the evil one – why? Because we are sent into the world as Jesus was, to do what he did. To be an ambassador of this kingdom and King – announcing the good news, the Gospel to everyone! We are to heal the sick, to free (deliver) people oppressed from the power of evil. To do this, we must do what Jesus did - we also must cultivate a life of prayer not only ourselves, but for others. The bottom line – it is a spiritual battle, and the as Paul wrote to the Ephesians, “you must put on all your spiritual armour in order to fight”.


Intercessory prayer happens when we take a position between heaven and earth on behalf of another person. We are asking God to give someone a loaf of bread, or experience a healing, a demonstration of God’s provision and kingdom reality. Whether it is a situation an individual is facing, or a city or nation, we recognize that God has the power to change circumstances.


Most of us are accustomed to praying for ourselves or another person, but we seem to need more prompting to pray on a larger scale – for a community or a city, or even a country. We all recognize the importance of spending time with God personally, but we cannot miss the fact that the praying together with others is also needed and required. Our rugged individualism in the west (modern world) has left us somewhat powerless in corporate prayer. The disciple’s prayer is meant to be prayed corporate for more than ourselves - “Our, Father… give us our bread… lead us from temptation… deliver us from the evil one”


Ponder: How is your intercessory prayer for others? Take time today to focus on others, your community, church family, relatives, friends, and people in your sphere of daily life who need to be free from the kingdom of darkness. Pray for political leaders, missionaries, countries that you know have need.


Before the prayer-fast weekend is done, call someone to join together in agreement in all that you have declared upon your life and the person you also have been lifting up in prayer. Pray for boldness and the Holy Spirits power and gifts to be stirred among you.


Thank the Lord for every person who fasted and prayed during this period – that they too will experience the fullness of transformation and transition in spirit and circumstances.


PRAYER FOCUS DAY 2:


Pray for an alertness and an awakening from spiritual slumber, and a grafting in of the saints into the Body.


Declare readiness over God’s people for radical change!


Decree that lives are being characterised by an increasing hunger for a new move of God.


Thank the Lord that He is changing you. Thank Him for His love that does not want to leave you the way you are. Pray that His plans and His will come to pass in your life as you submit to Him.


Pray for all the singles partaking in the fast who are seeking life partners. Ask God to guide them to the person who will really be a blessed spouse to that person. Pray for wisdom, guidance, and strength to overcome fleshly desires.


Intercede for all people that are in need for employment. Pray for their applicants to be given good positions. Seek the Lord for His peace, wisdom, and grace to be on their applicants, as they interview for positions.


Claim the promise of God’s blessing today. Ask God to increase you finances. Pray for Divine favor to open doors for you so that you will have contracts that will lead to financial success. Promotions in the work place. Inherited blessings that will chase you. Seek the Lord for the wisdom you need to make wise financial decisions and investments.


Ask God to cause revival living waters to begin to touch every area of your life, family, your nation, your church, Narrow Path Ministries (Pastor Robert & Aida Clancy) and for them to bring healing to every sickness, life in place of death, fruitfulness in place of barrenness, multiplication in place of stagnation. Cover Pst Robert Clancy and his family from every reprisal attack from the enemy for all the work he is doing on the front lines against the forces of darkness. Yes Lord protect them with your warrior angels as a hedge of protection around everything they do and go in Jesus Mighty Name!


Pray this prayer: Father, we are confident of this very thing; that He who has begun a good work in us; and in the Narrow Path Ministries that you would provide a building and new home for the ministry to have a training, healing and revival (worship centre) retreat centre it in Jesus name (Philippians 1:6). Give thanks to God for this and for answered prayers in your personal life also that He would provide for you according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. Remember as you pray for others, God takes care of your needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus.


Day 3 - GOD'S PROVISION


Date: 23rd of August 2020


Scripture Reading Matthew 6:11 “Give us this day our daily bread”


I want you to take some time now and open your bible to read these scriptures below:

Matt 6: 5-11

Matt 6: 19-34

1 Tim 6: 6-12, 17-19

Luke 12: 13-24


“ So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need from day to day. So, don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” Matt 6:31-34


Jesus teaches us in the disciple’s prayer to ask Father for our daily needs. Nothing wrong with asking, Father is an amazing provider. He loves to meet all our needs. The problem is we think we know better what our needs are than God does. Most of us would feel better if God simple provided enough for the next few years! But we are in danger of missing the kingdom when we think like this.


Jesus reminded us, “what does it prosper a man who gains the whole world but loses his soul”. The rich young ruler left Jesus with all his “external stuff” but no kingdom internally. He lost his soul/identity. His idea of need was much different than Jesus wisdom.


So, what constitutes our needs? What is this daily bread we are to ask for?


“I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” John 6:35.


Jesus spoke this after he had fed the 5,000. Father does provide practically, but the real focus we are to seek after – what we are to concentrate on is Him. He is the bread we are to ask for.


Beyond our practical needs, God knows we need Him first – His kingdom in us first- that’s why he said, “Seek first the Kingdom, then all the other things will come”. He is our daily bread….Let him fill you first.


Ponder: Read Matt 6:19-21 Take a honest assessment of your heart. What captures your heart and thoughts primarily – what is your treasure? How much of a hold does it have on you?


Meditate on what Jesus tells about the Fathers provision in Matt 6:31-34


Meditate on what it means to daily receive Jesus as your life bread.


Ask god to show you in what ways are you to seek first the kingdom


What is your part ? What is Gods part ?


PRAYER FOCUS DAY 3:


Pray through Prov 30:5-9, and 1 Tim 6:11-12. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you what you really need so you can live in the contentment these writers testify about.


Declare that every opportunity to prosper in mind, body, soul and spirit will not be missed this year that is remaining.


Invite God to use you – seek out every opportunity to pray for others to bring glory to the Lord – decree that signs, wonders, and miracles will follow us


Pray for your family, workplace, city, ministry, global body of Christ to receive breakthrough to enter the new era of delight, freedom, and prosperity in the Lord


Pray for an increase of supernatural signs, wonders, and miracles to be seen as believers pray for others and gather in groups to praise the name of the Lord.


Decree exponential growth in your spirit, knowledge and wisdom, revelation


Ask God to give you a spirit of generous giving so that you will be in a position bless others and in return be blessed.


Pray that God will send into their lives believers who will witness to them and lead them to Christ.


You may also pray for persons that are close to your heart (e.g. business owners, single parents, teenagers, family members, heads of government and frontline workers that have been under pressure during this Corona Virus Pandemic).


Intercede on behalf of your nation and the nations of the earth. Bind every satanic spirit that is coming against the nations. Rebuke the spirit of corruption in the name of Jesus. Rebuke the spirit of murder and abortion over each nation. Ask God to free all the children and people that are being kept as hostages due to human trafficking and all the sick paedophiles to be brought to stand justice for their crimes against children in Jesus Mighty Name!


Ask the Lord to shine His light into our society's and expose every evil work. Pray that the darkness of sin might be dispelled through the light of God’s Word.


The Bible tells us that promotion comes not from the east or the west but from God alone. (Psalm 75:6-7) Humble yourself before the Lord that He may promote you in His time. Seek His will and submit your plans to Him.


Give honor to the Lord today. He is your rock, your fortress, and your shield! The name of the Lord is a strong tower, so run into his name for safety today. Ask the Lord to guide you and direct your life. Whatever decisions you are facing today, commit them into God’s hands and pray for wisdom and direction.


Pray that the Lord will set you apart and set you on high so that your life will be a witness and testimony to the world. Ask God to elevate you at your work, in your family, and in your community, so that his light can shine out from you.


There is much error being taught in churches today. Pray for a return to the Bible, as our only source for doctrine and practice. Ask God to bring a revival of truth to the nations of the earth. A revival of Word & Spirit.


Look back over the past 3 days and thank the Lord for every transition and shift (no matter how small) you have made (spiritually, emotionally, and physically) during this period of fasting and praying.


Declare that on Day 3, your transformation and breakthrough will be complete according to God’s will and riches.


Decree that you will have a relentless pursuit to walk in the fullness of what Christ has promised you.


Decree that there is no going back to the old season. Speak completeness of turnaround in your healing, health and wealth in your spirit, emotions and physically.


Intercede for lost souls. Ask God to lift the veil of deception from their eyes, so that they will see the truth of Jesus. Pray for your family and friends who don’t know Christ. Ask God to convict them of sin and soften their hearts to receive His Word.


Intercede for all people that are in need for employment. Pray for their applicants to be given good positions. Seek the Lord for His peace, wisdom, and grace to be on their applicants, as they interview for positions.


Claim the promise of God’s blessing today. Ask God to increase you finances. Pray for Divine favour to open doors for you so that you will have contracts that will lead to financial success. Promotions in the workplace. Inherited blessings that will chase you. Seek the Lord for the wisdom you need to make wise financial decisions and investments.


Intercede for Narrow Path Ministries (Rev Robert & Aida Clancy) and your church that God will supply exceeding, abundantly above all we could ask or think. Pray that every financial need will be met and that we will have more than enough to carry out the vision for this year and beyond.


Pray: Father, we are confident of this very thing; that He who has begun a good work in us; in the Narrow Path Ministries at providing a building and new home for the ministry to have a training, healing and revival centre it in Jesus name (Philippians 1:6). Give thanks to God for this and for answered prayers in your personal life. Remember as you pray for others God takes care of your needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus.


Declare out loud: “By God’s grace as we have come to the eighth month, that the remaining of 2020 will continue to be a year of prosperity for me, despite any interruptions at the beginning of the year.”
