3 DAY NOVEMBER FASTING PROGRAM FRIDAY 19TH – SUNDAY 21ST, 2021

3 DAY NOVEMBER FASTING PROGRAM FRIDAY 19TH – SUNDAY 21ST, 2021



THEME: “LOOSENING THE BONDS OF WICKEDNESS”


DATE: FRIDAY 19TH – SUNDAY 21ST NOVEMBER 2021 (6am -6pm)


SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 58:6 ““Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, To let the oppressed go free, And that you break every yoke?”

One of our most powerful weapons against the enemy is fasting precious saints. Now for the last two fasting programs, I have heavily covered Endtime events because of the hour that we are currently living in precious saints. I would encourage all of you to revisit those teachings to stay grounded in His word and that you are not deceived by the false teachings floating around out there on YouTube that would distract you from being prepared.


October 4 Day Fast “Endtime” - https://www.repentancerevival.com/single-post/4-days-of-fasting-praying-thursday-28th-sunday-31st-of-october-2021


September 10 Day Fast “Ten Days of Repentance” - https://www.repentancerevival.com/single-post/10-days-of-fasting-praying-tuesday-7th-of-september-thursday-16th-of-september-2021


Now moving onto this month’s program and particularly in the book of Isaiah chapter 58, this is a great fasting chapter. For fasting is a weapon with purpose, let me tell you precious saints and when you are dealing with stubborn demons working behind our circumstances we really need to be just as relentless in prayer until they are loosened. So, in Isaiah 58:6 it tells us the reasons why we use fasting and what God designed fasting to do.


Isaiah 58:6 ““Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, To let the oppressed go free, And that you break every yoke?”


See you can use fasting and prayer to accomplish difficult areas within your life and within the lives of your loved ones whom you are praying for precious saints. Demonic oppression and all bondage will be broken by fasting and prayer, so if you feel like you have prayed, talked, and done everything you can, then you have come to the right place this month. Remember also every Friday is Corporate Friday fasting that you are welcome to join in for regular weekly fasting.


May be today you have stubborn loved ones also that just will not listen to your words of life, and that person's mind is so bound up in sin, that you need a complete breakthrough in that area. Sometimes it can be difficult to get them to the point, that they want to be free. But with fasting this is your opportunity to focus your prayers specifically to see this outcome. Therefore, learn to point your fast or in other words fast for a purpose and see the results that come after.


Matthew 6:18 “so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”


In Matthew chapter 6, Jesus said there is a reward for fasting, so step out in faith today and name your reward. Make that the purpose of your fast this weekend to break the control of demons off your life’s and that off the lives of your loved one’s mind’s. Start to pray that they would want to be set free and in right standing with God.


Matthew 17:14-19 “And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, 15 “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 16 So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.” 17 Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” 18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”


We only have to read the story above of the demon possessed boy in Matthew chapter 17 and how serious the demonic control was. Now as the story goes His disciples struggled to deliver the boy and they had to get Jesus to assist and later Jesus said to His disciples, "This kind can come forth by nothing but by prayer and fasting." (Matthew 17:21)


So, press in this weekend for your breakthrough and that of your loved ones. Yes, we are waiting upon the Lords soon return, but until then we shall occupy and go after the change that we are seeking for in the meantime by prayer and fasting.


In Matthew 11:28, Jesus said, "Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."


See you can enter His rest when we surrender our burdens in prayer, even those burdens of our loved ones. For while you are praying, believing, and using every weapon God has provided you, He has also promised you can rest in Him. So let your faith be your ticket into His peace, His safety, and His joy this weekend. Believe Him today, for He will not only answer your requests of breakthrough, but also will set your loved one’s free precious saints. Therefore, it is time, will you step out to believe today for the impossible.


REMEMBER NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD AND WHEN HE IS BY YOUR SIDE PRECIOUS SAINTS!


MESSAGE THEMES FOR THE 3 DAYS:

DAY 1 THEME: “FASTING BRINGS CONSECRATION”

DAY 2 THEME: “GIVE YOUR WHOLE HEART TO THE LORD”

DAY 3 THEME: “FASTING FOR MARRIAGES”


What am I required to fast from?

We want to leave this decision up to you. We do not have any mandatory church-wide requirements for how you fast, but here are some ideas:


Food Fast

When we choose not to eat or not to eat certain foods, we allow our physical bodies to hunger and to bring our desires into alignment with our spiritual need for God. There is a clarity in hearing from the Lord which comes when we fast and pray; making a small sacrifice to give up a “pleasure” or comfort to increase your spiritual sight and vision.

We are providing the following options for you to consider:


1. Food Fast

You fast from all foods from either 10pm-6pm (20 hours) or 6am-6pm (12 hours) each day with fluids allowed.


2. Partial Fast

You choose to eliminate certain things i.e. fizzy drinks; sweets/chocolates, bread, no red meat etc, but the rest of your diet remains mainly the same


3. Fruit and Veg

Eat fruit during the day, with liquids (tea/limited coffee, herbal drinks and water) with a veg meal in the evenings


4. Liquids only during day and veg meal for dinner

Drink water and herbal drinks during the day with a veg meal in the evenings. Please consult your doctor if there are any medical concerns before you commence the fast.


Media Fast

During this time, we encourage you to turn off the TV, computer, video games, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, the Internet, and any other form of social media for a brief peri od of time. You may decide to fast from Facebook or some other form of media altogether or to limit your time to only 1-2 hours per week. When we do this, we create more time when we can read our Bible, pray, worship, and hear from God.


Search your heart in deciding what type of food fast you want to do. If you have never fasted, maybe start off with a partial fast and progress to a fruit and veg option for the last couple of days. Remember, the most important consideration in fasting is your motive. Why are you fasting?


What will we be praying about?

Check each day for the next 3 days there will be theme topics, scriptures and prayers so you may follow corporately all together. We are trusting the Lord that this time of fasting and prayer will release a passion for His name within us – to cut off what belongs to a past seasons, to receive renewed hope and vision for our lives/ministries, to be conduits for signs, wonders and miracles and to fulfill the mandate of sharing the gospel to the ends of the earth! During this time of fasting, be intentional about your priorities. Set aside ample time to be alone with the Lord. The more time you spend with God, the more meaningful your fast will be. If you need an overview or suggestions on what you can do to make the most of the fast in terms of having a daily routine, use the below points:


Morning:

Begin your day in praise and worship


Read the days program and meditate on God’s Word


Invite Holy Spirit to work in you


Noon:

Take a short prayer walk


Spend time in intercessory prayer for the theme of the day


Evening:

Make time for an unhurried time of “seeking God’s face”


If others are fasting with you, meet together for prayer


Avoid television or any other distraction that may affect your spiritual focus and watch the daily uploads to YouTube. You are welcome to watch Christian movies etc.


When possible, begin and end each day with your spouse, family, or friend for a brief time of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord. Please let us know you’ll be fasting & praying with us!

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. You may choose to just skip one meal a day to still be able to take all medications.


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.


Day 1 – “FASTING BRINGS CONSECRATION”


Friday, November 19th, 2021


Scripture Text: Joel 1:14-16 “Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly; Gather the elders And all the inhabitants of the land Into the house of the Lord your God, And cry out to the Lord. 15 Alas for the day! For the day of the Lord is at hand; It shall come as destruction from the Almighty. 16 Is not the food cut off before our eyes, Joy and gladness from the house of our God?”


The Lord wants us to be separated and consecrated for His glory and use precious saints. For consecration deals with the separation of your heart, motives, and very life for the purposeful use of God. Even in this very late hour prior to His soon snatching away in the clouds, the Lord is giving us more time to prepare and busy doing the work of the Lord. Now this fasting program is a time of surrender, reflection, removal of impurities, and rededication of your heart to God. A major part of consecration is fasting. That’s right it is a time to humble yourself before the Lord where you and I abstain from either both eating and drinking or eating alone to draw closer to the Lord. See whatever level you fast is irrelevant, but rather that you are participating and focusing your attention on The Lord of the breakthrough.


All our fasting programs allow the Holy Spirit to sanctify ourselves and serve as a guide to a successful consecration within our life’s. When we fast, we also should have faith and expectation for our breakthroughs from the prayer points we write down and place within our bibles.

When we fast we should have great expectation saints:


Jesus, in His inaugural sermon on the mount began to give the disciples and those who heard Him a perspective change about numerous things. Along with instructions about persecution, enemies, identity, and prayer, He gives us some guidelines around fasting found in His word.


Matthew 6:16-18 “Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”


Jesus didn’t say, “If you pray”, however, he stated, “When you pray” indicating that it is an expectation that God has for our lives as followers of Jesus. Precious saints we must have a lifestyle of prayer and fasting that surrenders our hearts, minds, and lives to Him on a regular basis and that is why we have the weekly corporate Friday fasting and the monthly extended fasting programs.


Why do we fast so much you may ask? Well because:


  • Fasting gets YOU out of the way so that God can move on your behalf.

  • Fasting sharpens your spiritual insight and sensitivity to The Voice of Holy Spirit.

  • Fasting gives you the opportunity to bless others.

  • Fasting changes YOU in line with His perfect will, as God remains the same and changes not. (Malachi 3:6)

  • Fasting Creates intimacy with God

  • Fasting is to be done in secret when done individually (don’t broadcast the fast with the motive of wanting to be “seen” or applauded by others) but when done corporately we testify to encourage one other participating.

  • Fasting is not just a time to shed body weight, but soul weight! (3 John 2)

  • Fasting should be filled with times of prayer, worship, and Fasting should be filled with times of prayer, worship, and reading the Word of God.

  • Fasting is an opportunity for your worldly appetites to decrease, and your godly appetite to increase.

  • Fasting breaks the bonds of wicked and breaks every yoke the enemy has placed upon you.

  • Fasting is also filling the oil of your lamps to be ready for the Lords soon coming in the rapture.


So, what should our focus be with this weekend’s fast?


Well The Focus should be for God, by His Spirit, to not only prepare us for His coming, but also to reveal His plan in the possible four areas;


1. He wants our Life precious saints: Proverbs 4:23 – “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”


The very basis of our existence is the correct functioning of our heart, both physically and spiritually. God wants all of us, not just a compartment of us. As I say He is not interested in weekend visitation rights for His children, but He wants fully custody with our divine attention.


2. He wants our Love precious saints: Luke 10:27 – “You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.'”


God’s love should permeate each part of us and should be displayed outside of us in our actions. The Love relationship with God should flow out into our relationship with ourselves, our families, our relationships, our community, and the community at large. Now this maybe difficult with all the recent lockdowns and restrictions, but God intends us to be the light of the world even in the darkness.


3. He wants to guide our paths precious saints: Psalm 23 (Read)


What I mean by that is He wants us to walk on His narrow Path within our unique way and calling. Every purposeful experience we will have will be as a direct result of us walking in the right pathways (paths of righteousness) of life directed by our Father through His Spirit. Our hearts should be set and focused on the Lane and path in which God has called us to dominate. His perfect will is the only place for each of us to be in and the safest place to be precious saints. Even as we draw closer each day to the Lords return, live your life to the fullest in glorifying God in your area of influence.


4. He wants our Legacy: Genesis 18:19 AMPC – “For I have known (chosen, acknowledged) him [as My own], so that he may teach and command his children and the sons of his house after him to keep the way of the Lord and to do what is just and righteous, so that the Lord may bring Abraham what He has promised him.”


Legacy is the only thing we can leave, and our lives should be an example in word, thoughts, and deeds that are an example for the those that will be inspired to live for the Lord and encourage others to follow Him. So, ask the Holy Spirit to lead you in prayers for today and meditate on what you have read and what is God revealing to you today.

Thank You that You have people in every city who are hopefully looking to heaven and awaiting your return and snatching away in the rapture.

JESUS is coming. Stay ready in absolute repentance, watchfulness, and holiness.


Day 2 – “GIVE YOUR WHOLE HEART TO THE LORD”


Saturday, November 20th, 2021


Scripture Text: 2 Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…..”


Isaiah 26:9 "At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently; For when the earth experiences Your judgments The inhabitants of the world learn righteousness."


The first thing that happens when you people are admitted into a hospital if before the doctor comes to see you a nurse checks your vitals: your heartbeat and blood pressure. It doesn’t matter why you’re there, but they always monitor your heart it seems. Now the reason is that your heartbeat and blood pressure readings are an important indicator of your overall health.


So, as we start Day 2, it’s important to check the vitals of our faith, which is our heart. Now in the Bible, the heart is the emotional centre of a person. God places a high importance on the spiritual condition of our hearts. The Bible asks us to “examine our heart” and to “guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life.” (Proverbs 4:23) God’s promise comes to us when we fully commit our lives to Him; the promise is established by the premise of our devotion to Him. He is roaming the earth to build our hearts and make them stronger. See when worship and prayer hold priority within our lives, we become fully committed to Him.


There are many passages in the Scriptures where the inspired writer pours out their heart to the Lord, either in anguish, in complaints, in sorrow and in a thirst for more of God. So, it is one thing to examine your heart but also another thing to be hungry for God.


Do you remember the last time you poured your heart out to the Lord? You may be feeling dry today and in need of a special touch from God to revive you. Or you might be in a good place in His presence with the Lord. Wherever you are at this moment precious saints, this is the time when to cry out to God and say, “I give you all of me. Not just part of Me, but all of Me”


Then ponder on the below points:


Time of Reflection – reflect on the purpose of the fast this weekend to worship God, to seek His face, preparations to fight through, and write down if you have not already all the prayer points. The problems which need solving, situations that need healing, expectations even of new beginnings.


Time of Resolution – purpose in your heart that you will see and hear God’s heart during the remainder of today’s fasting and prayer. Set your heart to live a fasted life, just as you set time to spent in God’s presence. You do that by sometimes talking and most time listening to Him, for this fast will set the tone for the remainder of the month and into the next if the Lord tarries.


Time of Release – refuse to worry about anything today but focus on what God can and will do for you. Release and surrender all to God today by the power of the Holy Spirit. Now remember, worrying is choosing not to believe God, therefore replace that worry with prayer today.


Time of Restoration – believe God for healing, renewal and repair in your life and the life of others you are praying for. Remember God is a Restorer of every area of our lives, God is able precious saints and whatever miracle you need God can do it and make it happen!


Time of Remembering – past victories, present victories, future victories; the faithfulness and kindness of God over the years to strengthen you.


See our Heavenly Father, loves us to talk to Jesus about everything within our lives, the positive and the negative. Nothing is too small or too big to bring before Him. So, start by spend time in prayer today asking God to fill you afresh with His Holy Spirit. Yes, spend time passionately crying out to God for yourself, your family, the Church as a whole, your Nation and the Nations of the world. Ask God to direct you as you intercede and pray. So let us submit all to the Lord today who is worthy to be praised!


DAY 2 PRAYER FOCUS:

Heavenly Father in the mighty name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we come before Your mercy seat today through the precious blood of Your Son Jesus Christ. Today we are here with our heart open wide and as we enter this sanctuary of fasting. We fall at the foot of the cross today and as we lean on the promises of Your word. We burrow in depths of Your love. Yes, we wait in the stillness for Your vision within our life, as we feel the love of your heartbeat. We rest here and lay out our life’s Lord. We give you this moment to speak, as we listen intently to sounds that are all around us. We breathe and give thanks for our life’s.


Dear Lord, I thank you that you are always longing to hear from us. We thank you that nothing in our life is too small or too big to talk to you about. We want to pour out our hearts to you especially in the area of ________________________ (pray as you feel led).


Father, we pray that you would strengthen our heart’s and help us to be fully committed to you. We declare our complete dependence upon you. Without you, we can do nothing. Jesus, we ask that You forgive us of our sins. Holy Spirit, regenerate our heart and make us new again. Give us a renewed passion and a fresh revelation of Your Word. Guard our hearts against the evil attacks of the enemy and restore our hearts to exactly how You designed it to be. Give us the strength and courage to continue in prayer and fasting for the remaining two days. In the name of Your great and glorious son, Jesus Christ.


Pray that Christians will be bold witnesses for Christ within this last hour and that God will increase our faith and we with take care those He has entrusted us with to care for. Also, Pray your desire for an eternal perspective and contentment with your current blessings and your own personal spiritual growth.


Confess to God the sin(s) that you struggle with most and ask God to give you strength to overcome it after this fast. It is time for godly sorrow for every known, hidden, secret or revealed sin in your life and be willing to turn from them to God today.


God’s heartbeat for your home and your city to be transformed. As this takes time, so don’t lose heart and never give up. Pray with shameless persistence like never before to take one day at a time and reach those that will listen:


Our Father in Heaven, we acknowledge that times and seasons are in Your hands. Lord we know that may have been deceived within this hour with the lies of the enemy at present with the one world order agenda. Lord anoint our eyes to see beyond the here and the now. Tune our ears to listen beyond the norm and the natural. Open our minds to dream beyond the human and the ordinary. Awaken our hearts to believe beyond the practical and the possible. Open our eyes to see and discern the enemies agenda taking place around us and bring people to repentance that have been deceived in Jesus Mighty Name!


May every satanic obstacle be blocking our life’s SCATTER today and clear away right now in the mighty name of Jesus!


May everything that must go for us to move forward today and the fire of God remove every hinderance in the mighty name of Jesus!


Any demonic cage holding our divine possessions, break asunder today in the mighty name of Jesus!


Any witchcraft power working against our blessings, be rendered powerless today in the mighty name of Jesus!


Evil works of iniquity to bring curses upon our destiny, break by Holy Spirit fire in the mighty name of Jesus!


You evil Powers ruling over our life’s and depriving us the goodness of life, release back to us all that was stolen in the mighty name of Jesus!


Every satanic hindrance to our prayer life be scatter now by the power of the Holy Spirit in the mighty name of Jesus!


Let every confusion of the mind programmed into our life’s scatter today in the mighty name of Jesus!


You evil altars of our father´s house, crying against our destiny’s, release us all and be rendered powerless and leave for good in the mighty name of Jesus!


Every plan of witchcraft to take possession of our life be destroyed in the might name of Jesus!


Let every spirit controlling deeply rooted problems through soul ties covenant break now by the blood of Jesus!


Every altar, planning our demotion, be dismantle by fire, in the mighty name of Jesus!


Pray for Robert Clancy YouTube Channel to grow despite of tickling ears and that we would reach those in need of ministry, without any more hinderance coming against the channel being censored for truthful content to prepare people for the rapture in Jesus mighty name.


May God strengthen your hands in battle and give you the victory in Jesus' Name.


Bring also the month of December before God, and ask Him to begin to show and tell you His agenda for your life in the New Month, as He tarries.


Pray for specific instructions that He has for you in relation to His purpose for your life in the season.


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.


Ask God to cover the ministry of 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, will complete it. 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.


Pray this blessing over your life: Numbers 6:22-27 “The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 23 “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them, 24 The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; 26 the Lord lift up his countenance[a] upon you and give you peace. 27 “So shall they put my name upon the people of Israel, and I will bless them.”


Thank you, Lord, for listening and answering our prayers in Jesus Mighty Name!


Amen.


Day 3 – “FASTING FOR MARRIAGES”


Sunday, November 21st, 2021


Scripture Text: Mark 10:8-9 “and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”


Now todays fasting program is primarily for relationships and no matter what your relationship status is you can be praying for a marriage around you that needs prayer. See we believe in the power of Godly, unified, and healthy marriages. We believe marriage is a gift God gave His creation. As special as this amazing blessing is, for all marriages, there are some seasons more difficult than others. In those seasons, it may be difficult to see the true blessing of marriage.


Maybe someone reading this today will find themselves happily married, some will find themselves unhappily married, some divorced, or some are still waiting for the person God has for them to marry. Regardless of where we might find yourselves, we can make a difference by praying for the marriages around us.


Genesis 2:18 says, “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”


Anyone who wants to enjoy a peaceful home will also need to understand the purpose and plan of God for marriage and the home. The home is a church within a church, a republic within a republic, a world within a world. If things go right there, they go right everywhere. If things go wrong there, they go wrong everywhere. The home is the foundation of the church and the state. The home is the bedrock of civilization. Every phase of human life has its foundation in the home. It is the nursery school and training ground for all humanity. These days, the home is under serious attack. The devil’s number one enemy is the godly home. The home is therefore a primary target of the devil. The Devil started his attack right from the Garden of Eden. He has concentrated destructive forces on the home. Unfortunately, many are complying with satanic strategies in the home. He has converted many homes to houses. So, these days, homes are disintegrating, society is falling and lives are blown into pieces. My prayer is that, God may stir up righteous indignation within you for violent prayers through todays fasting program. The devil understands that a successful marriage depends on two things: finding the right person and being the right person.


Let us first start with the benefits of fasting for your marriages:


1. Fasting helps us maintain a clear mind and eternal perspective on marriage.

When we remove a need it magnifies our dependency on God. Our eyes are opened to how big God really is, and how frail our life is in comparison. It helps keep us focused on the bigger picture. We become clearer minded and start functioning on the fact that God really is in control of our life, our marriage, our family, our future, and all of it.


2. Fasting teaches us to extend grace and forgiveness more freely.

I do not know about you, but I appreciate when my spouse forgives me. For it also reminds me of how willingly God forgives us, and that should create a desire to extend more grace and gentleness toward others also. (Read Matthew 6:14-15)


The truth is fasting has taught me that God will fill my need even when I am undeserving. This helped me develop a more loving, gracious, and understanding attitude toward my spouse also. For if God can give me strength to get through a 80 day fast, how much more is He able to help me rise above whatever mood I am in and respond in kindness? Now that is a challenging thought, but with God all things are possible.


3. Fasting helps us put our marriage in the hands of God, not the hands of our spouse.

In seeking a deeper relationship with Jesus, we place our greatest hope in Him. When Jesus becomes our Supreme first love our spouse is freed to become whom Christ designed them to be.


Let’s remember our spouses are a recipient of the same grace you and I so desperately need each day. While our spouses may fall short at times, we have a Heavenly Father who is on stand-by ready to care for our every desire and heartache. Let’s take our cares to Him and trust Him to do greater things than we can imagine.


Today, let's choose to pray for unity, protection, health, and intimacy for all of the marriages of those within this fasting weekend and those around us. For those whose marriages are struggling, be encouraged because your spiritual family joining this program is praying to God for you today also that God will change the heart of your spouse.


Are you experiencing turbulence in your marital life? Is your marriage a nightmare? Then todays fasting program is just as much for you, as it is for the person whose marriage is not under attack or the person believing for marriage. It is my prayer that the good Lord shall certainly use days prayers to turn every bad situation around in your lives and marriage.


God can restore precious saints with both your relationships with God and man, so let God impress upon your heart anyone you need to forgive and seek forgiveness from. Maybe it is your spouse or a loved one, but when He speaks, obey precious saints!


Allow God to Revisit – yes go back and revisit your time before salvation when the Lord was calling you; revisit the place in your mind of your salvation; revisit the power, the wonder, the overwhelming love, the sense of forgiveness you experienced on that day. Now also show that same forgive either towards your spouse if you are married or a past relationship that did not work out. God always rewards His children for obedience with both temporal and eternal gifts according to His word.


PRAYING FOR A SPOUSE IN THIS LATE HOUR?

Maybe you are single and praying for a partner, now I am not to here to discourage you, for some are meant to marry even within this late hour. But the Bible also makes it clear that God sometimes calls people to be single. So, if you are single, you are to be a successful single and not a defeated one. Yet at the same time, we know that there are a lot of people in pain, because those who wish to get married find the options limited today and it can be very difficult to find a godly spouse.


There is a good principle we need to look at concerning fasting for a mate. Now to be honest with you, no one should want to be wasting their time seeking worldly relationships with unbelievers, for not only does the bible warn us to not yoke ourselves with unbelievers, but time is too short before His coming saints. But if you still feel God is calling you to pray for a godly spouse within this late hour, then make sure that the relation is truly from the Lord.


When fasting for a mate it must begin with total commitment to God first and foremost and then everything else will follow. In Genesis chapter 24, we find that Abraham was the father of 40-year-old Isaac. He wanted his son to get married. In this chapter, we see unfolding in front of us the divine process of the meeting together of an arranged marriage with Isaac with Rebekah. Abraham called his most trusted servant and had him take a vow that he would find a wife for Isaac who would not be from among the Canaanites. Meaning all the women around them were all from Canaanite people. The situation suddenly became serious for the servant, because now God would have to intervene to provide a wife. Very similar to today for anyone trying to find a God-fearing spouse with all the counterfeits even in the church, so just as the servant needed God to lead the way, so only God can provide for anyone in this late hour.


The servant’s task was serious because a wife would need to stand by Isaac to fulfill the covenant given to Abraham by God, the covenant that there would be a nation of his descendants from whence the promised Saviour would come. A purpose is defined for this relationship, just as you should want for your won marriage relationship. Now remember our commitment to God also includes the decision not to compromise in marrying the wrong person. So just as the servant was vigilant, you must also be patient and vigilant in only having Gods perfect will and His best for you. Now the truth is if that person is not visible, then surrender it to the Lord, while He tarries as you do not want to ever marry the wrong person.


Precious saints even as we come to the end of Day 3’s teaching part I also want to encourage you to know God has more for us! His Spirit is alive and available to you today, to not only transform any marriage, but transform us and empower us for an abundant life with supernatural impact in this dark world around us! Do you believe that an abundant outpouring of the Holy Spirit is available for those that hunger for God? Is it your desire to receive this outpouring today in a measure beyond what you are currently experiencing this weekend? Are you ready to be used in a new, exciting, and supernatural way? Then ask the Lord for it today precious saints, as the Holy Spirit has promised to pour out upon all flesh! (Joel 2:28-29)


DAY 3 PRAYER FOCUS:

Heavenly Father, I pray for those who are far from You. Give us the courage and the power to reach those who don’t know You in our sphere of influence. I pray for my family members who have walked away from You. Draw them back to Your love through the power of Your Holy Spirit. God, let there be an awakening in our family, our city, our county, and the nations with Your remnant that will be ready for Your soon coming. As the world gets darker, I pray our light shines brighter. In the mighty name of your great and glorious son, Jesus Christ.


Dear Lord, thank You for Jesus’ incarnation, life, death, and resurrection. Thank You that He left the gift of His Spirit to reside in us! We confess we regularly miss the great opportunity of being filled up by your Spirit. We forget, dismiss, or neglect instead of receiving this incredible gift.


But today I commit to a posture of openness, an attitude of welcoming You in, a spirit of urgency and discontent, that nothing less than a life full and overflowing with You will suffice. Mold me. Fill me. Use me. Clear out any obstruction that would keep Your outpouring from being an infilling. In mighty Jesus’ name!


Pray for at least 5 minutes for your spouse, future spouse, significant other, family or other love ones.
