4 DAYS FASTING AND PRAYER FOR JANUARY 27TH, 28TH, 29TH & 30TH 2022
THEME: "THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE"
SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,”
Precious saints there is a spiritual battle for dominion and authority upon the earth at present and it is only heating up more each day. We have never been closer to the Lord’s coming than we are today saints, although many are unaware. Those that are tuned in to the Spirit of God can sense the spiritual environment that has changed and can hear the cries of thousands of voices echoing the same words from Revelation 22:20 “…Come, Lord Jesus.” But as the Lord tarries in His snatching away of the bride of Christ, He is still preparing a spotless bride and making us endure until the end. When the Lord calls you to something, He will never allow you to go empty handed. For He has given us spiritual weapons to fight the good fight of faith against all the forces of darkness that are currently trying to take over.
Unfortunately, we have many in the church today that are still asleep, even though we have many crying out “WAKE UP SLEEPY CHURCH.” And while they are sleeping, there would seem to be nonbelievers that are more aware that something is not right with the governments heavy hand on all these mandates. See the truth is only Jesus can fully awaken someone fully to know the difference between good and evil, right, and wrong within this world. But there are those that proclaim to be His children, that have become spiritually blinded to everything happening around them.
Just as the prophet Ezekial prophesied during the captivity of Judah, and said "that they had ears, but did not listen because of their rebellion".
Ezekiel 12:1-8 “Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying: 2 “Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, which has eyes to see but does not see, and ears to hear but does not hear; for they are a rebellious house. 3 “Therefore, son of man, prepare your belongings for captivity, and go into captivity by day in their sight. You shall go from your place into captivity to another place in their sight. It may be that they will consider, though they are a rebellious house. 4 By day you shall bring out your belongings in their sight, as though going into captivity; and at evening you shall go in their sight, like those who go into captivity. 5 Dig through the wall in their sight and carry your belongings out through it. 6 In their sight you shall bear them on your shoulders and carry them out at twilight; you shall cover your face, so that you cannot see the ground, for I have made you a sign to the house of Israel.”
There is a great delusion happening within this hour and many claim to have eyes and ears, but do not see nor hear. The church as a whole has become rebellious, and many have gone into captivity under the control of a Pharaoh like spirit. I do thank God for many of you that are following these fasting programs, because many have had their eyes opened. God is preparing you to be a part of remnant bride of Christ, one that is awakened to the deception to this hour.
The feedback I am recieving from many is that because the churches are refusing to speak the truth, many have been led online to seek truth because people are thirsty for the truth. The remnant bride can see the spiritual shift taking place within this hour that is happening internationally, nationally, and locally. And you only must see the tougher totalitarian/ draconian measures being put in place by our governments, workplaces and even some churches that are under the disguise of protecting us from a plandemic virus.
Now many of us have seen headlines that England and Ireland have started dropping the mandates, which is great news. But these elites are stilllout to control and will even change their narrative if needed be. I have mentioned in the pastthat weather manipulation is just one of those narratives. Now recently watch the news coming from Israel I was very disturbed to hear them passing the Special Powers Act 9-3, with only 10% of the Knesset present. This law gives absolute authority to the government to make the Green Passport mandatory, to expand surveillance on people in quarantine, to make it a crime to refuse a PCR test.
Imagine the 120-member Knesset, whom the citizens of Israel voted into office, would have no say in this law.
“This is a dangerous law. It is far more dangerous than any law they’ve passed till now,” attorney Oren Pasternak said. “The law establishes a dictatorship type government until December 2022. And it transfers the authority from the full Knesset to the government (coalition), nearly obliterating parliamentary procedure.”
Activist Ilana Rachel Daniel said, “The law is nothing less than the end to democracy and our beloved country as we know it. Allowing unbridled authority to a singular branch of government which already acts with totalitarian power to execute complete control over both the citizen’s individual right to choose and public policy will legislate dictatorship and the continued deterioration of the society and morals we have built our country upon.” This Information was from ALL ISRAEL NEWS.
As we know the Ezekiel 38 war is on the horizan as the alliances are being made now around the world. Isreal is the figtree and are to keep our eyes upon what is happening to know we are closer than we think to the rapture. The way we did things before COV-19 are not coming back, but Jesus Christ is precious saints!!!
We are living in unprecedented times, but Isaiah the prophet spoke of these very days of pandemics, rumours of war, deceptions, and natural disasters etc… according to:
Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. 2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. 3 The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Even though it is speaking more of the great tribulation to come, the antichrist who is still being restrained by the Holy Spirit according to Paul’s 2nd letter to the Thessalonians. We as the remnant church that are preparing for the glorious rapture of the bride, can stand in the gap to see God’s kingdom come according to His perfect will in this late hour. So, yes Endtime events must play out according to God’s sovereign plan, but we the remnant church still carry the authority to see changes where the Lord allows.
2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 “And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.”
So, as we can see by the above scripture, right now the stage and the culture are being set up for the Antichrist. The Antichrist is preparing to take his seat of authority at the appointed time in God’s timeline. The truth is he is already here, and we may get glimpses by different world leader speeches of late, but he has not been fully revealed yet. See one indicator is the level of unrighteous and wickedness that is growing day by day all around us each day.
For as we look around, we can see today, an increase of horrendous crimes such as Murder, Rape, Theft, Aggravated assault, abductions, ritual abuse, paedophile attacks, human trafficking and abuse that has skyrocketed. The courts are full, the prisons are overflowing more now than ever before, and this corruption starts from the very top. We have propaganda media and politicians telling us half-truths, and in some cases straight out lies. Yes, today we are seeing how blatant election fraud is covered up and corrupt politicians and judges are being paid off by multibillion-dollar corporations. We see people are being murdered for exposing any agenda of the elites’ plans against humanity.
You have even said to yourself on many occasions “what is going on in today’s day and age?” knowing that with the recent pandemic our freedom that we once took for granted, seem to be slowly taken away from us. I keep telling you to buckle up for 2022, because how extreme they will take the control measures to the next part of their agenda. A feeling that a new dispensation is about to start, is right before us. Yes, and you would be right in thinking and sensing in the spirit that there is a shift, as it is all just preparing the culture and stage for the antichrist to be revealed precious saints.
But as we await the Lord’s snatching away, there is a ferocious battle for Righteousness within each nation across the face of the earth right now and it requires your participation through prayer. For we have things in the natural for instance, laws are being passed every day that are an abomination to God and in many cases are there to silence us from speaking the truth. We have medical apartheid being introduced all over the world, for those that took the snake bite and those that did not. We have people onto their fourth booster and regretting partaking of something that is not working. Truth has become an offence to many that hear it, who have become void of it or indifferent to it. Families are being divided, marriages are being divided, people are losing their source of income and many people are waiting for someone to save the day. Now I have been censored on nearly all social media platforms, so if what I am saying is new then join our Telegram page by using the private link to join. https://t.me/joinchat/Rd0nSxKjDSUxMjVl
Now the truth is, the only one that can save us is Jesus Christ and we as believers are ambassadors, need to walk in divine authority this year more than ever. Isaiah the prophet again spoke of what was to come according to: Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
Paul also warned Timothy about the perilous times and perilous men that would come in the future: 2 Timothy 3:1-6 “ But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts,”
The church of Jesus Christ is the beacon of light, but I am sad to say in most cases today it has become silent on the snake bite and this totalitarian government, for fear of persecution. When the Lord gave us the dream about the finger in the sky, it was a warning to the preoccupied church, telling them to not touch the children. Well, the truth is there is only a remnant that is crying out to save the children today as many parents have rolled the sleeves of their children. Now I am not here to judge you on your decisions, as God is merciful and is even waking people up now as you are reading this. But we must be willing to say we made a mistake and ask for God’s mercy and power to reverse any harm caused by this bio-weapon.
Imagine the Church is an embassy representing heaven within each nation, but in many cases, they have lost their authority of speaking truth in an hour of deception. Now I am not just talking about the established church in big buildings, but rather a church that has been called out from amongst this world’s system. For each born again Christian is an ambassador for Christ Jesus upon the earth precious saints and we are to walk with heaven’s standards.
For Paul confirms this in 2 Corinthians 5:20 “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be you reconciled to God.”
We are in a spiritual battle today that requires more grace precious saints, for we are moving into a new season, and this brings a new level of opposition. The hordes of hell are being released upon the unrighteous with many being used to bring about the enemy’s agenda upon the face of the earth. Therefore, we need to continue to stand in prayer for the remaining of 2022.
Matthew 11:12 “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” What is happening around us requires us to stand more firmly in the Lord with the pressures around us and this world’s system.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not [a]carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…,”
See our faith in God's spoken word releases the power from heaven that binds (or ties up) the evil we are facing. Similarly, when we loosen something on earth, we "permit and declare [it] proper and lawful on earth"
Matthew 16:19 “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” So, everything that we loosen, or bind must be in accordance with God's word.
There are so many things that we pray for, and we wait for God to respond when in fact God has already told us what to do. He has already given us the strategies against the enemy’s throne, altars, and gates that we need to succeed in this spiritual warfare. God is not going to come to earth and do the things that He has already given the church the authority or ability to do precious saints. That is what binding and loosing is all about. Using the spiritual authority, we already have and to carry out the work of the Kingdom.
We are up against a very well organised demonic army that has its own hierarchy and levels of satanic authority. These authorities can be set over empires, cultures, nations, and regions of the earth. They can be behind natural and supernatural government.
1. Satan (commander-in-chief) 2. Thrones 3. Dominions (lordships) 4. Principalities (rulership’s, princes) 5. Powers (authorities) 6. Rulers Of Darkness of This World 7. Spiritual Wickedness (wicked spirits) In High Places (heavenly places)
Let us look a little further into this demonic hierarchy to understand a little more:
Territorial Spirits: Demonic powers have controlling influence over specific sites, peoples, and areas. The belief in such hierarchal arrangements is culturally widespread and often involves protective deities linked to homes, temples, clans, cities, valleys, and nations.
Principalities And Powers: Demonic agents and structures that exert deceptive control over co-conspiratorial human political kingdoms and systems. A principality is defined as: A state ruled by a prince, usually a small state or a state that falls within a larger state such as an empire. The position or authority of a prince or chief ruler; sovereignty; supreme power. So, a principality is not a fallen angel itself. A principality is the seat of authority or the region that the fallen angel has authority over. A prince rules over a principality. Daniel chapter ten makes it noticeably clear that fallen angels, and angels from God are both called princes:
“But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.” (Daniel 10:13)
Powers: These are the sergeants that conduct the orders from the princes and pass down to lower ranking demons.
Rulers of Darkness of This World: Demonic forces involved in deceptive and destructive manipulation of natural elements and systems. Where are the rulers? In the heavenly places.
So yes, there are hinderances, but when we walk in the finished work of the cross, we can overcome all adversaries. Whenever you reach a mountain top or about to breakthrough, Satan tries to stop you. But when the cross was lifted, the enemy was defeated precious saints. When He rose on the third day, that was a greater rising. Therefore, the Lord call you out from the valley of despondence and desires to place you on the heights. Just like the eagle that is unbeatable from higher altitude, the Lord is calling us to discern the times we are living and equip ourselves for the battle ahead.
So, you may be asking me then what about repentance revival that you always talk about. Well, the truth is revival needs to start with you and me first, but let us look how the demonic hinder revival in larger numbers.
See principalities over cities, regions, and nations are hindering revival. These fallen angels promote dullness, darkness, and spiritual lethargy. The reason the church is not experiencing "open Heavens" is because of these angels. Principalities will not face their final judgment until after Jesus returns to the earth. A fallen angel over a region or country may be bound for a time, if the courts of Heaven have so determined precious saints. I would love nothing more than to see a revival over our cities, but the truth is the Lord can also rapture His remnant bride any time He wishes.
But let us just look back at history and see how the great revival started in Argentina in the mid 1900’s. See because the principality over that oppressive nation was bound up for a period through the prayers of the remnant church. Imagine once it was bound the atmosphere changed and people that were closed off to the gospel, were now suddenly open to the gospel. Even the pastors and evangelists were moving in remarkable miracles that they previously had never done before. People were rushing to any prayer meetings, crusades, and churches to be healed, delivered and or saved. The nation went from being hardened to God, to being open to the gospel. It was like a light being switched on. Once the fallen angel was bound, the Heavens opened over Argentina and light shined all over the nation. Binding principalities is a major key to revival precious saints and God can also do remarkable things through the remnant church that will cry out to Him in unity for revival. I am never going to deny God cannot bring a revival even today, but where is the remnant bride that are crying out for God’s mercy day and night?
In this 4-day fasting program you will see I have updated and used some teachings from the past, because what I was trying to warn the church about is clearly in full swing today. I have been saying that the antichrist is setting the stage and culture for so long, and many where more interested in hearing messages of blessing and prosperity that could not see the enemy sweep in. Now we will tackle legal rights of the enemy, thrones, altars and gates the enemy uses to hinder us and reveal to you how we are in the situation we are at present. Now because we are tackling spiritual matters against the enemy, that means spiritual forces, which means we are going to enter spiritual warfare, so we can combat all demonic powers over our lives. Some Christians today may still not be ready for such teachings that expose the enemy, because they do not want to know the truth, but let me tell you the world that we know, is not what it all cuts out to be. Therefore, before you proceed, I encourage you to put on the full armour of God on, as we go into spiritual war.

What am I required to fast from?
Fasting Type: It is your choice what level you wish to fast, you wish to do 4 days dry fast without water or food, maybe you wish to do 4 days with water fast? Or you could fast from food but drinking water or fluids partially. You are welcome to break the fast each evening and start again either after meal (6am-6pm) or you can go straight through as I said. You can even just skip one meal a day if you wish also. See the key is I want you to abstain from something to seek a closer walk with the Lord and see your spiritual breakthroughs. The key is to also follow the program that is designed to assist and be a guide to press into the Lord. You will find some helpful tips below also. Once again, we want to leave this decision up to you about how you are going to do it. We do not have any mandatory church-wide requirements for how you fast, but here are a few others’ ideas for first timers:
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 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.
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, start off with a partial fast, 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 4 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 those that will listen! 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:
Begin your day in praise and worship
Read the days program and meditate on God’s Word
Invite Holy Spirit to work in you
Take a short prayer walk
Spend time in intercessory prayer for the theme of the day
Be available for an unhurried time of “seeking God’s face”
If others are fasting with you, meet 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 will 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.
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 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.
SPIRITUAL CLEANSING & SPIRITUAL EYES OPENED:
Fasting can be done for one meal, one day, one month or for however long God leads. It depends on how the Holy Spirit speaks to us. Shorter fasts are easier to endure until we have built up our “spiritual muscles”. A three day fast is most beneficial as a spiritual cleansing. An example of this is Paul being thrust into his fast upon conversion. After the three days of cleansing, he received the Holy Spirit and his eyesight when Ananias laid hands on him (Acts 9:17-18). We also can be spiritually cleansed by fasting so that we receive more of the Lord’s Spirit and have our spiritual eyes opened to new dimensions. A three day fast is also especially helpful in breaking any addictive habits.
These then are two reasons for fasting: We receive spiritual cleansing, and our spiritual eyes are opened, and we also obtain victory over the devil. When Jesus encountered Satan, He was able to overcome Him because His fasting had given Him spiritual strength. Isaiah 58:6 also gives us light on this purpose of fasting: “Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?.” Many people believe that fasting is to move the hand of God, when in actually it is to make Satan turn loose of the things he is holding.
BREAKING STRONGHOLDS & BUILDING FAITH:
Fasting loose the bands of wickedness. When Jesus discussed the keys to the kingdom, He told us to bind and loose. When we fast, we loose the bands of wickedness, undo the heavy burdens, set the oppressed free, and break every yoke of the enemy. Fasting is an important key to getting the victory over challenging situations that do not seem to respond to normal prayer.
Fasting builds our faith. In fact, this is what Jesus meant when he spoke to the disciples in Matthew 17:21 in answer to why they were not able to cast a demon out of a child. He said, “However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” He was telling them if they wanted their faith to be at such a level as to be able to cast out demons, then they must fast and pray for their faith to increase.
Fasting also makes it easier for us to hear the voice of the Lord. We find an account of this in Acts 13:2 “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.”
While fasting, the Holy Spirit spoke to them and gave them direction. We too can be directed by the Lord if we seek Him through prayer and fasting.
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 and mourning are strongly associated in the Bible. Two examples of this are found in Ezra and Nehemiah.
Ezra 10:6: “Then Ezra rose up from before the house of God and went into the chamber of Jehohanan the son of Eliashib: and when he came thither, he did eat no bread, nor drink water: for he mourned because of the transgression of them that had been carried away.”
Nehemiah 1:4: “And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven.”
From these Scriptures, we see that fasting and travail (a prayer burden from the Lord that brings crying and tears) were combined. Both men were fasting for the repentance of God’s people. How we need this same kind of intercession today. Here were men so burdened for the sins of their people that they fasted, travailed, and prayed.
Day 1 – GIVE NO PLACE TO THE DEVIL
Thursday, January 27th, 2022
Scripture Text: “Neither give place to the devil.” — Ephesians 4:27
You and I never have to fall prey to the devil precious saints, who goes around like a roaring lion ready to devour (1 Peter 5:8). For if we can shut every door, close every window, and seal every place in our lives through which the enemy would try to access us, we can prevent him from getting into the middle of our affairs.
So do not give the devil any foothold in 2022 precious saints, for God's Word tells us that we must be perfect (Matt 5:48). Now this is only made possible by following the perfector Jesus Christ with the help of the skilful one the Holy Spirit. The scripture also tells us to bless those who curse you (Luke 6:28) and to do good to them who treat you spitefully (Matthew 5:44).
So then how does the devil get a foothold in our lives?
Satan should have no hold over a child of God precious saints. You should not fear him, but he should fear you if you are truly in Christ. We should be the devil’s worse nightmare and not his tool to attack fellow saints by bringing about the devil’s agenda. In fact, every day you wake up and your feet touch the ground the devil should be fleeing in seven directions. But if you allow sin to rule in your life, the devil will take your arm and twist it into his direction.
See demons are always looking for ways to stop or hinder the work of God. Legal rights and grounds must be cleaned, as demons can use them as an excuse to remain.
Let us say, a person has invited a demonic spirit into their life through sin, then that sin will remain a legal right for the demon to hang around until the person has repented and turned from their sin. Sometimes breaking up legal grounds involves more than simple repentance, such as the breaking of soul ties, renouncing vows made to Satan, and breaking generational curses etc… Therefore, it is important for us to allow the Holy Spirit to reveal any legal rights, so that they can be broken. Otherwise, the demon can either put up a fight when you are trying to cast it out in deliverance, or if you do cast it out, and they return at a later point.
So, what is a legal ground or legal rights?
A legal ground or how I like to call it a bill of rights is something in our lives that has given an unclean spirit the permission or right to involve itself in our life, body, or mind (soul).
One of the “entry points” the devil tries to use to enter our lives is relationships. If there is an unresolved issue or an ugly conflict with a loved one or friend, these conflict points often become entry points through which the devil tries to get a foothold in our relationships with those we love. Once the enemy can slip in through one of these “cracks” and build a stronghold of offence within our minds, then a wall has already begun to be constructed that will eventually separate us from the people we need and love the most.
A good example of how legal grounds/rights works is found in Matthew 18:23-35, where Jesus talks about unforgiveness. Jesus wraps up the story by saying that if we are unforgiving, tormenters have access to us to oppress:
Matthew 18:34-35, " And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him. 35 “So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses.”."
The believer who harbors bitterness and malice in his heart is giving Satan one of his most effective open doors and can be one of the major reasons for demons having legal rights to oppress people! Now as you can imagine this hinders a believers walk with the Lord, so it is highly effective tactic of the enemy to keep you in offence. Now remember the only remedy to unforgiveness is forgiveness. So, if someone wrongs you, learn to forgive them from your heart. Jesus gives us simple steps to follow found in the book of Matthew 18:15-17; and he cautions us to be reconciled, as quickly as possible (Matthew 5:23-26). Because the longer you harbor an unforgiving spirit, the more territory Satan will gain in your life. In my pastoral experience, I have seen homes, marriages, friendships, and churches weakened in cases by Christians who will not forgive one another. Even if the other party does not forgive you, you forgive them to release them back to God. Remember you cannot force a person to forgive, but you can see to it that Satan, is defeated in your own life.
As mentioned unforgiveness, which gives birth to bitterness, is known in the Bible to spiritually defile a person: Hebrews 12:15, " looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;"
" And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you." (Ephesians 4:32).
If you are not compassionate to one another, we also give satan room through offence and if you do not forgive you give the devil a foothold. It does not mean that you must overlook sin, but when a person truly has remorse then we have an obligation to forgive others by the grace of God.
In Ephesians 4:27, the apostle Paul writes, “Neither give place to the devil.” The word “place” is the Greek word “topos”. It refers to a specific, marked-off, territory, province, region, or geographical location. So, this lets us know that the devil is after every area, region, and zone of our lives precious saints. That is right the devil wants to attack our finances, health, marriage, relationships, employment, business, and ministry. But for him to start this plan he needs to establish a stronghold, and he does that first by finding an entry point to commence his destruction within our lives.
So, what entry points could the devil use in relationships? Well let me give you examples:
Refuse to let go of old hurts and wounds.
Refuse to acknowledge what we did wrong.
Refuse to forgive others for what they did.
Refuse to stop judging others for their grievances.
Refuse to admit we were wrong too.
Refuse to say, “I’m sorry” when we are wrong.
Refuse to lay down our “rights” for others.
So, things such as unforgiveness, unrepented sin, ungodly soul ties, foolish spoken vows, curses, and so forth, can give unclean spirits the right to hang around and influence us. As mentioned these things must be cleaned up for each of us to experience lasting genuine freedom. Legal grounds/rights be cleaned up through repentance, renunciation, breaking soul ties and generational curses etc. One thing I have learnt in ministry is when trying to minister freedom to somebody who is not ready to give up the sin that gives the devil legal right to be there, really is not ready to be delivered. Otherwise, demons can come back seven times worse for such people and makes demons more stubborn to come out. So, to save you hours of wasted time, repentance is a vital key to not only salvation and forgiveness of sin, but for legal rights.
So let us look at few shared areas that give legal rights to the devil:
LYING: Ephesians 4:25 “Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbour,” for we are members of one another.”
Since Satan himself is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44), so it is no surprise that lying opens for him an opportunity to work in our lives. But when we believe the truth, then the Holy Spirit can work in our lives. For when we believe a lie, then the devil can work in our lives.
ANGER: Ephesians 4:26 “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath,”
This scripture shows us that anger in our hearts gives Satan a foothold within our lives. And just as lying and murder go together, so anger and murder go together (Mat 5:21-22). Now righteous anger is completely different from sinful anger. Righteous anger is hating what God hates, but our sinful nature has a way of polluting our emotions and do more harm than good. See anyone can become angry for that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way—this is not easy and needs self-control.
STEALING: Satan is a thief. Ephesians 4:28 “Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labour, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need.”
John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Satan steals from everybody including those that serve him. He will rob you of your sanity, your liberty, your home, your marriage, your relationships, your joy, your finances, your life, your reputation, your health, and your souls.
SPEAKING BAD WORDS: Ephesians 4:29 “Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.”
Paul repeats this warning in the next chapter also.
Ephesians 5:4 “Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.”
He is not forbidding holy, healthy humour for the ability to laugh is a mark of maturity and discernment. The truth is one needs a healthy sense of humour to deal with all the stress in life. Paul here is condemning a filthy mouth or bad utterance. This kind of speech tear a person down, and God wants our speech to be “good for edification.” Since what we say comes from the heart, impure speech and humour indicates an impure thinking and imagination. A person does not have to read pornographic books or see pornographic movies to have a pornographic imagination. If Satan can get us to think about sin, and then talk about sin, he will have an easier time tempting us to commit sin. When we talk freely about filthy things, it takes the edge off our conviction; we get accustomed to it, and soon the barriers are down. Remember there is life and death in the tongue and spoken curses, such as, "I'll never get out of debt!", “I’ll never get healed or delivered” or “I’ll not be raptured” should be renounced (taken back verbally) and broken in the mighty name of Jesus.
We need to be careful making vows for foolish vows are known to bind the soul and must be repented of and verbally taken back (renounced) and broken in the mighty name of Jesus.
We also need to watch ourselves when we are around filthy speaking people, as there can be a transference of spirit from that person if we do not reject those words from our ears. See it is vital we protect the ear gates, eye gates and mouth gates of our lives.
CURSED OBJECTS: Cursed possessions, such as occult books, satanic symbols, etc. must be thrown out. For God's Word is clear that bringing a cursed item into your home can bring a curse upon yourself: Deuteronomy 7:26, "Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it. You shall utterly detest it and utterly abhor it, for it is an accursed thing." So, we must be vigilant and destroy and remove any cursed or ungodly items from our homes as well.
If you have not spiritually cleansed your home in the last 12-6 months, then feel free to watch this teaching to assist: https://youtu.be/tSlB7UT7U9I
FORMING UNGODLY SOUL TIES: Ungodly soul ties can formed when a person has an ungodly relationship with another person or makes a foolish covenant with them. Becoming a blood brother with somebody will create a strong soul tie that should be renounced and broken. Ungodly sexual relationships will surely create soul ties that must be broken. The key to breaking an ungodly soul tie is to first repent of any sins committed in the development of that soul tie, and then the soul tie must be renounced, and then broken in the mighty name of Jesus. If gifts or physical items participated in that relationship, then it may be necessary to destroy, give away or throw them out as well. Gifts between a man and woman involved in an adultery should be sold, given away or thrown out as they can symbolize that relationship.
The apostle Paul told us, “Neither give place to the devil.” And the Greek makes it clear that we must choose to give the devil no territory. You see, we have a choice: We can choose to “give the enemy place” in our minds and emotions, or we can choose to walk in the Spirit. If we choose the lower road, we will end up doing and saying thing s we later regret. Those regretful things are usually what opens the door for the devil to wreak havoc in our relationships.
GRIEVING THE HOLY SPIRIT VS QUENCHING THE HOLY SPIRIT: Ephesians 4:30 “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamour, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”
The Apostle Paul says it is possible to quench the Holy Spirit because he told us in: 1 Thessalonians 5:19 “Do not quench the Holy Spirit” When we quench the spirit of God, were trying to silence what God is trying to say to us or motivate us to do by the Holy Spirits prompting. Sometimes we can quench without even knowing it precious saints.
But we grieve the Holy Spirit by not confessing our sin. Just as a person grieves over the loss of a loved one, the Spirit of God is said to be grieved when we sin. This will then block the Spirit of Gods power within our life. He is called Holy, because He is holy, and is the third member of the Godhead, but He also works to create holiness in us through sanctification, but unconfessed sin blocks that growth and process.
Now the enemy also is the accuser of the brethren and will even try to remind you of sins that have already been forgiven, so to counter these lies, speak Gods promises. Satan is the slanderer and the accuser of the brethren (Revelation 12:10). When you and I slander the saints instead of praying and seeking to cover the sin in love, we are working for the devil. We should not be surprised if he gets a foothold in our lives and turns our weapons against us! Satan should have no hold over you, but he gets the hold over you because of sin.
So, in finishing today’s teaching before we go onto the prayer remember if you every now and then fall into sin and do not get victory over sin, then pray and ask the Lord if there is still any open door for the devil in your life. We should copy the example of the Ephesians who burned their magic books thus not giving the devil a foothold in their life. Paul says that these sins above and any other sins not mentioned, if not put away can grieve the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 4:30) They sadden or hurt the Spirit of God. Satan wants to get a foothold in our lives, thus we ought to repent of our sins and not hurt or shame our Lord.
So do not give Satan any open doors within your life precious saints!
PRAYER FOCUS DAY 1
PRAYER TO BREAK THE LEGAL GROUND/RIGHTS
Heavenly Father in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I now approach Your throne through the blood of Your Son in a time of great need, in time of an extreme emergency. Father, as You already know, I have had demons attacking me from the outside, and from the inside of my being. I know why they are in my life, for of the doors I have knowingly or unknowingly opened. Lord the times I have transgressed against both You and all Your basic laws and commandments with the sins that I have personally committed against You, forgive Me today.
Father, I first want to say to You that I am sorry for doing all these bad and evil things against You. Lord there is no excuse for the kind of behaviour that I have exhibited over the years. But Father, I now want to take a strong stand. I do not want any more part of this kind of evil and wicked lifestyle any longer. Lord I know now that You are My only hope and My only salvation to be able to deliver me from the demonic bondage that I now find myself enslaved in.
Father, I ask that You please have mercy on my soul, and that You please forgive me for all of the sins and atrocities that I have personally committed against You under the blood that Your one and only Son Jesus Christ has personally shed for me on the cross. Father, in the name of Jesus, I now want to formally confess out all the bad, evil, and sinful things I have personally done against You. Father, I now confess to you the following things as being sins and extreme abominations in Your sight:
Examples to confess (only confess what you did and anything else that comes to your mind not on the list):
My involvement in drugs.
My involvement in sex, fornication, unnatural and unholy sex acts – such as homosexual acts and thoughts and being involved in a swinger’s type lifestyle.
My use of all kinds of pornography.
My past fornication/ adulterous affairs and activities.
All my past thefts and covetousness.
All my envy and jealousy that I have ever shown against anyone, and all of my lying and deceit that I have ever been involved in.
All the pride, impatience, hate and rage that I have ever shown or manifested over the years.
All my involvement in the occult arts such as witchcraft, invocation of demon spirits, seeing fortune tellers, reading horoscopes and tarot cards.
All the time that I have personally cursed You and prayed to other false gods.
Times that I broke Your 10 commandments to one degree or another.
Father, I now know, without any shadow of a doubt, that all the above activities were evil, heinous sins and abominations in your sight. I am so sorry for going this far against You.
Father, I know that Your Son Jesus Christ has died for all my sins. Father, in the name of Jesus, I now ask that You please forgive me for every single one of these sins and transgressions that I have personally committed against You. Let the Blood of Your Most Holy Son Jesus Christ completely wash away every ounce of stench, every ounce of each one of these sins that have been committed against You.
Father, you tell me in Your Word, that if I am willing to confess my sins and agree to repent, that You will fully forgive me of my sins and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Father, I now ask that You please forgive me for of all my sins that I have personally committed against You through the blood that Your Son Jesus Christ has personally shed for me on the cross. I now believe that all my sins have been forgiven and completely washed away by the Blood of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Father, I now want to agree to also renounce every single one of the above sins. You have my word that I will never, ever attempt to go back into any area having to do with the occult, any area having to do with sexual fornication, or any involvement in any kind of drug use whatsoever.
Father, in Jesus’s name, I now officially renounce every single one of the above sins and transgressions that have been committed against You.
Father, the next thing I need to take care of is that took place to me as a child. I now know that what happen was not right and wrong in Your sight. However, I will choose not to hold any unforgiveness towards those people.
Father, I choose with my own free will to fully forgive all from my past for what they did to me either yesterday or when I was a young child. Today I choose not to hold no hate or animosity towards anyone. I ask that you please have mercy on their soul when they must face You for their own personal judgment. I now fully forgive them for what they had done to me.
Father, I now believe that all my sins, transgressions, and abominations against You have been fully forgiven by You under the shed blood of Your Son Jesus Christ.
Father, I thank You for having this kind of mercy on my soul and that You have made a way of forgiveness for me through the Blood of Your Son Jesus Christ.
Father, with all my sins and transgressions against You now being fully forgiven, I now want to finally break the legal rights these demons have had over me over all of these years.
Father, in mighty name of Jesus, I now ask that You fully break the legal rights of these demons. I now ask that You completely break and completely sever (cut) every single one of their legal rights that has arisen because of my involvement in all the above sin areas or anything that I have missed today.
Father, in the name of Jesus, I now want to personally come against each one of these legal grounds/rights on myself – operating under Your authority and Your anointing to be able to do so.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ – I now fully break and fully sever (cut) each one of these legal grounds/rights. Father, I repeat, in the name of Jesus Christ, I now command that every single inch and every single part of this legal grounds/right line be broken, completely severed (cut), and demolished in the name of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I now plead the Blood of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ against every single part of this legal ground/right line and command it to be completely broken right now in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Father, I also want to reaffirm with you today, that I have now fully surrendered my body, my soul, my spirit, and my entire life into Your hands. I now ask that You place me into Your perfect will for my life. I am now willing to fully follow You all the rest of the days of my life. I will now be guided by Your Holy Spirit from this moment on – and I will never, ever cross back over into the sin-filled life that I used to live in. And with your grace I will overcome until the very end.
Father, whatever need to get our family saved, that You would remove every obstacle from us and our family serving the Lord in Jesus Mighty Name!
Father, by your mercy count me worthy to escape your wrath and judgement coming upon this world in these last days and to stand worthy before you, to be raptured.
Holy Spirit that prepares the bride ready for You O Lord, Jesus. Prepare me to be ready for the rapture.
Father, we pray for the people around us who do not realize You are coming soon and first are coming to snatch away Your bride, so please awaken their hearts in Jesus Mighty Name!
Father, I now belong to You, and You alone. Yes You, and You alone, are my Rock and my Salvation. I will look to no other. My life is now totally in Your hands. Father, from this moment on, I will fully follow You and fully serve You for the rest of my eternal life in Jesus Mighty Name!
CASTING OUT DEMON PRAYERS
I WANT YOU TO SAY THE BELOW PRAYERS OUT LOAD MULTIPLE TIMES IF NEEDED BE, SO THE DEMONS CAN HEAR CLEARLY AND SPEAK WITH AUTHORITY.
Remember you have now already broken all the legal grounds/rights of the demons on the above prayer that I gave you and now they are ready to cast out with the battle prayer. If possible, try to do in private between you, God, and the demons. Remember the angels that surround you out match, out class and out number every demonic spirit oppressing you.
Feel free to use this prayer over the next Days if needed be.
Heavenly Father in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I now approach Your throne through the blood of Your Son in a time of great need, in time of an extreme emergency to finally to take these demons out of my life for good.
Father, I have already come before You confess my past sinful things that I have ever done to You throughout my life. I have also renounced my past activities and have told You that I will never, ever go back into those heavier sin areas again. Father, I have horribly wronged You with some of those past transgressions, and I am so sorry that I have ever gone against You and deliberately disobeyed You so many times.
But Father, now is the time to pick myself back up off the mat. Now is the time to make a brand-new start with a brand new direction. I have already fully surrendered my body, my soul, my spirit, and my entire life into Your hands. I have now entered into Your perfect will for my life. I am now all Yours. I now belong to You and no one else – and I will now fully serve You and fully follow You for the rest of my eternal life.
Father now is the time to clean up one last loose end. As a result of my past involvement in some of these horrible transgressions against You, I have drawn demons into my life knowingly or unknowingly. I know that I have given these demons full legal right to come into my life and attack me like they have been doing with everything that I have done against You.
Father, but now is the time to take a final stand against these demons! Now is the time to vanquish them out of my life for good! Now is the time to stand up and fight and directly engage with them while operating under Your full power and anointing to be able to do so!
Father, You have said in Your Word that “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out all of their troubles.” (Psalm 34:17)
You have said in Your Word that “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me.” (Psalm 138:7)
Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, I now ask that You send me into battle to cast these demons out of my life for good. You say in Your Word that You can “make me bold with strength in my soul” (Psalm 138:3) and that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
Father, since I have now fully surrendered every part of my life into Your hands – I now want to take a hold of the verse that says to “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
Since I am now fully submitted to You, I am now ready to resist Satan and his demons who have been attacking and tormenting me over all these years. Your Word tells me that Satan and his demons will now flee if I pick up my sword, which is Your Word, and directly engage with them.
Father, in the mighty name of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, I now ask that You stir Yourself up as a Man of War and go before me to take out this defeated foe. Your Word tells me that “The Lord is a man of war.” (Exodus 15:3)
Your Word tells me that “The Lord shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war … He shall prevail against His enemies.” (Isaiah 42:13)
Father, in Jesus’ name, I now ask that You stir up Your zeal like a mighty Man of War off the wording of this verse.
Father, I now ask that You go before me as a consuming fire. Your Word tells me that “The Lord your God is He who goes over before you as a consuming fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; You shall drive them out and DESTROY THEM QUICKLY …” (Deuteronomy 9:3)
Father, Your Word tells me that You will go before me and “make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.” (Isaiah 45:2)
Father, these demons have kept me prisoner long enough. I now ask that You go before me to make this crooked path totally straight again and that you break the bars that have been holding me captive over all these years. I now ask that You completely cut and completely sever the cords of these wicked and evil spirits.
In Deuteronomy 33:27, it says that You “will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!”
Father, I now ask that you anoint me from head to foot with Your anointing, with Your power, and with Your authority to take these demons head on. You have already told us in Your word that “in my name they will cast out demons,” (Mark 16:15) and that You gave the early apostles the “power over unclean spirits” and that “they cast out many demons.” (Mark 6:7)
Father, not by my might, but by Your Holy Spirit I will engage with and defeat these demons once and for all!
Father, Your Word tells me that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Your Word tells me that I have been given “the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt me” (Luke 10:19) and that “Through You we will push down our enemies, through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us.” (Psalm 44:5)
Father now is the time! Now is the time to drive this enemy out of my life once and for all!
Father, Your Word tells me that the Sword of the Holy Spirit is Your Word. Father, in Jesus mighty name, let your Word be my Sword! Father, I repeat, let Your Word be my Sword!
START TO SPEAK TO THE DEMONS IN AUTHORITY “In the name of My Lord and Saviour and my deliverer Jesus Christ – I am now speaking to every single demon that is on the outside of me and to every single demon who may be on the inside of me.
Demons, in the name of Jesus Christ, I now come against each one of you. I know that you have all been in my life for many years. I also know why you have been allowed to enter my life and attack me like you have been doing over all of these years.
I now know what all your legal rights have been over all these years that allowed you to attack me as you have been doing.
Demons, in the name of Jesus Christ – all your legal rights have now been totally and completely broken before my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and my heavenly Father, God the Father.
I have now fully submitted and fully surrendered my entire body, my entire soul, my entire spirit, and my entire life into the hands of God the Father. I now belong to God the Father and my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I now belong to Them, and to Them alone in this life.
You no longer own me. You no longer have any more legal rights to stay attached to me. All of your legal rights and demonic strongholds have now been completely broken and completely demolished under the shed Blood of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I have now fully confessed my sin of using drugs over the course of my entire life. I have now fully confessed my sins of fornication and having sex with multiple lovers and partners over the years. I have now fully confessed my sin of watching any kind of pornography. I have now fully confessed my sins of past thefts and covetousness.
I have now fully confessed my sins of breaking most of 10 of God’s commandments to one degree or another during my life. I have now fully confessed my sins of delving into parts of the occult that I had no business treading into. I have now fully confessed all my sins having to do with my jealousy, rage and anger.
All my sins have now been fully confessed and fully renounced before God the Father. All my sins have now been fully forgiven. My slate has now been made perfectly and completely clean. My sins and transgressions against the Lord are no longer remembered in His eyes. I am now a new creation in Jesus Christ.
I am now totally committed to serving Jesus Christ, and Him alone in this life. Never again will I go back into the sin-filled life that gave you the legal right to be able to come into my life in the first place.
Every demon you will hear My voice today, in the name of Jesus Christ:
I now plead the Blood of Jesus Christ over every inch of spirit.
I now plead the Blood of Jesus over every inch of my soul.
I now plead the Blood of Jesus over every inch of my body.
I now plead the blood of Jesus over every inch of this entire house.
Demons, the Word of God is now my Sword! I repeat, the Word of God is now my Sword!
I am now taking up my sword, which is the Word of my God, which is the word of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ – and I am now coming against each one of you – whether you be on the outside of me or whether you be on the inside of me.
Demons, all your legal rights have now been completely and totally broken – completely and totally demolished – completely and totally severed (cut). I repeat – all your legal rights have now been completely broken. Your time is up! You will all have to go now! I repeat – you will all have to go now!
To every single demon who is living and operating on the inside of me – I am now coming against each one of you. I now plead the Blood of my Lord and Master Jesus Christ against each one of you. I repeat – I am now pleading the Blood of Jesus Christ against each one of you.
Demons, in the name of Jesus Christ, I now command all of you to come out of me right now and to leave me and this house – and you are to never, ever come back on me again. I repeat – every single one of you that may be on the inside of me is to come out of me right now in the name of Jesus Christ – and you are to leave my body, my soul, and this entire house immediately! Go now, in the name of Jesus Christ! I repeat, go now in the name of Jesus Christ!
To every single demon who may be attacking me from the outside, or who has been living in this house, because of the legal rights that I had earlier given to you, I am now coming against each one of you. You too have had all your legal rights totally broken and will leave in Jesus Mighty Name!
Not one of you has any more legal right to be able to stay attached to me in any way, shape, or form. You will all now have to go in Jesus Mighty Name!
Demons, in the name of Jesus Christ – I now plead the Blood of Jesus against each one of you! I repeat – I now plead the Blood of Jesus Christ against each one of you!
Demons, in the name of Jesus Christ – I now command you to leave myself and my house – and you are to never, ever come back on me again. I repeat, you are to leave me and my house for good, and you are to never, ever come back on me again! Go now, in the name of Jesus! I repeat – go now in the name of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and do not ever come back into my life or in this house ever again!
Father, I have full faith and belief that You have now driven all these demons out of my body, out of my soul, out of my house, and out of my life for good by the power of Your Holy Spirit.
Father, I now ask that You protect both me and my family from this moment on, and that You never allow these demons to come back on us ever again.
Father, to You be all the glory. To You be all the praise, glory and honour that is only due to You. Father, thank You for this deliverance. Father, thank You for this new life.
Father, I now ask that You take complete control of my life from this moment on and that You lead me into Your perfect will for my life. Father, guide me by Your Holy Spirit into the direction and path that You will want me to take in this life. My life is no longer my own. I now belong to You, and you alone in Jesus Mighty Name! Amen
Day 2 – DESTROYING THRONES, GATES AND ALTARS
Friday, January 28th, 2022
Scripture Text: Psalm 11:4 “The Lord is in His holy temple, The Lord’s throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.”
Revelation 2:13 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells”
Precious saints we are in a spiritual battle and the battle appears to be over "thrones, altars and gates"(Authority). See the enemy has occupied thrones (seats) in cities, nations, and people's souls for thousands of years. Satan desires to be king and to sit on thrones that give him authority to occupy those places and peoples with his demonic agendas. He not only uses his demonic hierarchy according to Ephesians 6:12 principalities, powers etc to take their seats of power, but also uses human agents that serve him upon the earth.
That is why satan will place those he chooses within positions of power within all levels of governments, financial institutions, religious institutions, educational institutions, media outlets (Big Tech), commercial company and all levels of judges within the courts etc. Yes, satan has a very organised pyramid system with him being at the top and those below that serve him from the occult such as the Illuminati, freemasons, witchcraft, false prophets, shamanism, voodoo etc just to name a few.
Those that serve him do so at their own detriment and are deceived by his false promises. Now remember satan is the prince of this world and knows his time is short, so he will try to control as much as he can within all levels of society.
Now a throne is a symbol of legal authority over a kingdom. The Hebrew word for “throne” is kisse or kisseh, which translates an elevated seat occupied by a person in authority, whether a high priest, judge, military chief, or king. The word “throne” in Greek is the word thronos, which means a throne seat, a chair of state having a footstool.
So that is why it is equally important that we have Christians in all levels of society also to advance Gods’ kingdom upon the earth. Despite what the enemy is doing around us within this end times, God has already defeated the devil through what Jesus did at the cross. Remember the devil lives under our feet precious saint’s hallelujah! We also know that Christ's enemies will one day made a footstool under His feet according to Hebrews chapter 10.
Hebrews 10:12-13 “But when this Priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, He sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time, He waits for His enemies to be made a footstool for His feet, 14because by a single offering He has made perfect for all time those who are sanctified.”
As you can see there is a throne of God and a throne of Satan. There are those that wish to represent the devil’s kingdoms upon the earth right now, and yes, some of them are sitting on demonic thrones all around us. However, you must understand that satan is limited, as he can only be in one place at one time. Hence why he needs his wicked workers everywhere. He is paranoid of God moving through the saints and revival coming to the church of Jesus Christ. God is omnipresence and can be everywhere and is omnipotent being all powerful, so the devil is limited and that’s why he uses monitoring spirits and agents across this world to do his bidding.
There are those that are working in regional roles for satan to help in his agenda to weaken the nations according to Isaiah 14:12.
Isaiah 14:12 “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!”
We only have to see this being played out today with the level of wickedness being paraded before us in the open. The amount of corruption and passing of laws that are an abomination to God and purposed to weaken the nations, as the enemy knows that righteousness exalts a nation according to Proverbs 14:34.
Psalm 94:20 “Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, Have fellowship with You?”
So, wherever there is a throne, there is an altar. Where there is an altar, there is a gate. A throne is a symbol of legal authority. Thrones are set up at gates (2 Chronicles 18:9, Esther 5:1, Revelations 4:1-2). The enemy uses these gates to block our blessings and will use whatever legal right connected to evil altars needed to do so. Thrones stand over altars and gates and the one who sits upon the throne is the actual power behind the altar. So that is why we have prayers to deal with wrong foundations, generational curses and evil family altars etc. Because we have people that have been saved and trying to live a godly life, but they have setbacks that cannot be explained. See Jesus went to the cross to deal with the curse of sin and death, but He still requires us to move in that finished work and take up that authority by faith and exercise it over all demonic powers holding us back precious saints. To deal with any stronghold or wrong foundation, we have to destroy the demonic throne and the power that is working behind the altar with confessing God’s word, renouncing curses and spiritual warfare prayers.
In Amos 9:1, we see that there was an idolatrous altar in Bethel. According to Amos 9:1 “I saw the Lord standing by the altar, and He said: “Strike the doorposts, that the thresholds may shake, And break them on the heads of them all. I will slay the last of them with the sword. He who flees from them shall not get away, And he who escapes from them shall not be delivered.”
If we want to be free, we must destroy the idolatrous foundations, by putting our spiritual hands on it and burning the idol. We also must release ourselves from all generational curses through renouncing them where needed and destroy the family idols from our ancestry where needed. Every family altar must be dismantled through prayer and fasting. This is a must for us to see our breakthrough this weekend and rise above our circumstances.
Let us now quickly turn to see the Israelites in the book of Judges: Judges 6:1 “The people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord gave them over into the hand of Midian for 7 years.”
Unconfessed sin has consequences precious saints, and it was seven years until they truly repented until things started to turn around.
Judges 6:8 “When the people of Israel cried out to the LORD on account of the Midianites, the LORD sent a prophet to the people of Israel.”
It is interesting to note that WHEN the people of Israel cried out to the Lord for help, He sent a prophet to tell them what was wrong, and thereafter raised a deliverer for them in Gideon and his army of 300 men. How many of us are suffering under oppression, defeat and discouragement, setbacks, almost there and have spent years fighting and "binding" the devil, but the real "enemy" is closer home than we thought with evil altars and gates etc? Now if God allowed the Midianites to devour Israel's harvest, it was because they had legal right to do so and the people just allowed the enemy to come in. They even started worshipping Baal along with the Midianites and when we worship these false gods it gives satan a seat and throne over that area to dominate. Then the enemy will use fear to oppress the people and that is what the enemy produces well is fear. Does that sound familiar today with so much fear around the world today in the recent pandemic?
So, if you are reading this today precious saints, and you have been caught in a cycle of fear and defeat for any length of time or reason. The first step to take in breaking these thrones, gates and altars. Then allow the Holy Spirit to search your heart today and show you where you may be at conflict with God, to start with.
For He has promised whoever calls upon the Lord for Help, God would deliver us in our day of trouble. Just as He sent a word through the mouth of His prophets, showed them where they had gone wrong, stopped the mouth of the devourer and brought restoration when they repented. So, God can send forth this message so you can turn your situation around today, if we will but believe Hallelujah!
This is a prophetic word of God to you today, that your change has is here! If you will but align yourself to Him and align your heart to His word, and will for your life, He will manifest as your Deliverer and the Restorer of all the things has stolen from you precious saints! Yes, you will be the very one to break the generational line of curses to see your family saved and set free hallelujah!

Thank you, Lord, for listening and answering our prayers in Jesus Mighty Name!
Day 3: EVIL ALTARS ARE RENDERED POWERLESS
Saturday, January 29th, 2022
Scripture Text: Judges 6:11-16 “11 Now the Angel of the Lord came and sat under the terebinth tree, which was in Ophrah, which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, while his son Gideon threshed wheat in the winepress, in order to hide it from the Midianites. 12 And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him, and said to him, “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valour!” 13 Gideon said to Him, “O my lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the Lord has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.” 14 Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?” 15 So he said to Him, “O my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed, my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.” 16 And the Lord said to him, “Surely, I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man.”
We continue from yesterday on thrones, altars, and gates, I want to touch more on altars. As we see in our scripture reading of how the Israelites in Judges 6:1-10, were in such a pitiable state that spanned over seven torturous years were characterised by:
After 7 years of suffering, the Israelites finally wised up and cried out to Jehovah for help! But there was something very critical that happened between God appearing to Gideon to make the promise of deliverance to him, and in Chapter 7 when the promise was fulfilled, and the victory realised.
The story from Judges 6:25 to verse 29— “In ancient Israel, the people worshipped Baal because he was thought to be the god of fertility, weather, rain, wind, lightning, seasons, war; and they relied on him for agricultural prosperity.”
In the hard economic times because of the Midianite oppression, the people worshipped Baal but, not understanding that they only made things worse by not turning to God. God called Gideon to get his own house in order first. He was ordered by God, to first tear down the altar of Baal.
So, lets first look at this altar. An altar is dedicated to God for worship. Every altar set up is on fire. Altars are watchmen even over governments. They testify for or against us. There are visible and invisible altars. There are two types of altars which are divine altars and satanic altars. Classic example is Elijah the prophet versus 850 false prophets of Baal.
1 Kings 18:21-22 “And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word. 22 Then Elijah said to the people, “I alone am left a prophet of the Lord; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.”
Evil family altars set up by the enemy can hinder us in our Christian walk. There are altars of afflictions where the victim is afflicted with diseases such as cancer. It does not matter where we are, the altar can still affect us if not pulled down (renounced and curse broken). Example: your family may have an evil altar within the home or compound and if you leave the house because you come to Christ, your family can still send reprisal attacks to you, as you are learning to grow stronger in warfare. Now some of this may seem foreign to some but being a missionary in many different countries I have seen a lot of strange things that is not always taught in Bible college. See those that come from families where there is idol worship or generational witchcraft this is common for them. This also is the same for those that come from freemason background. Witches can even build altars at various locations such as mountains, beaches, and roads. See, there are statues raised in countries that are altars and they can be Hindu, Buddhist or straight-out satanic statues in your city or region. I have driven across the width of India and have seen this firsthand how they dominate the different areas with large temples and statues. They are found at the entrances of certain organizations and businesses in city centres. Buildings and even churches that are dedicated by freemasons or witchcraft, where certain ceremonies were done to the foundation etc.
Wherever there is worship of any kind, there is an altar. They are found in supermarkets and malls with Hindu and Buddhist altars set up for prosperity and protection, even straight-out voodoo. We as the people of God have power to dismantle these altars, Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Now if that is not enough, we have seducing spirits that have crept into the church to deceive the body of Christ behind the altar according to the first letter of timothy:
1 Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit [a]expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,”
See every message proclaimed or preached is either from the Spirit of God or seducing spirits to deceive the people. Many are being deceived today which is part of the great apostasy, where many false apostles that have embraced the methods of the world and brought them into the church.
Now the remnant bride has been given discernment to test the spirit and authority to pull down every evil altar working against our lives.
Jeremiah 1:10 “See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.”
Now back to Gideon he had to pull down the altar to build another to God according to Judges 6:25-26 “Now it came to pass the same night that the Lord said to him, “Take your father’s young bull, the second bull of seven years old, and tear down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the [a]wooden image that is beside it; 26 and build an altar to the Lord your God on top of this [b]rock in the proper arrangement, and take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the image which you shall cut down.”
So, we see there was an existing altar speaking against the people of Israel and empowering the enemy to oppress the people. This was because of the legal right in their lives giving the enemy authority through their false worship, so until that altar is taken down, there would be no deliverance for them!
Though Gideon did not partake in the sins, he was suffering the consequences with the people who did!
An altar serves to activate covenants. It also serves existing covenants. Everywhere there is an altar, the covenant it represents will always be in active operation because the altar activates it. In other word, wherever you find an altar, there is a covenant in existence over that place. An altar is a place of exchange. One is attached to the altar through a sacrifice. When the evil altars require a sacrifice, death comes. It can be death of a family member, death to marriages or death to our children’s destinies and visions. Death to our finances and future marriage. This has been the prayer requests I get from around the world from people.
That was why God asked Gideon to first take down the altar of Baal before going into battle. Gideon had to first break the power and influence that the existing covenant exerted on his people before they could be liberated from the oppression of the enemy. God also wants us to tear down the altars that may be speaking against us in the generational family line, so we also can move forward to accomplish all that Jesus has for us.
So many satanic evil altars are raised against children of God to prevent the fulfillment of the purpose of God within their lives. Through the power of the Spirit of the living God we can pull down these evil altars in Jesus Mighty Name! What belongs to Christ also belongs to us precious saints. The altar of Jesus Christ will never fail (Matthew 26:28, Hebrews 12:24). We have been given authority of all the powers of darkness precious saints and we just need to walk in that authority and pray fervently, as He is training us to have hands of war.
Colossians 1:13-17 “He has delivered us from the power of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of His dear Son, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God and the firstborn of every creature. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they are thrones, or dominions, or principalities or powers. All things are created by Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”
PRAYER FOCUS DAY 3:

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!

DAY 4 — PIVOTAL POINTS ON PRAYER AND FASTING
Sunday, January 30th, 2022
Scripture Text: Matt 17:14-21 “14 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?” 20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
Welcome to day four of the fasting program as we have been dealing with very heavy topics to equip us to walk in victory. But I have a question for you today? Have you ever tried and failed at anything before in your life? Have you ever done anything that you have put your best efforts in and not got the results that you hoped and laboured for?
No matter how smart, gifted, connected, knowledgeable, anointed or how well resourced you are, you will at some point, encounter a situation that will leave you dumbfounded. Maybe you are even going through such a situation right now in your life, as you read this. Maybe failure is staring you right in the face today, mocking your best efforts and making nonsense of your hard work and even rigorous prayers!
In our scripture verses today, the disciples had just experienced the embarrassment of a failed attempt at ministry, as they were unable (no doubt despite their best efforts) to give relief to the epileptic son of a disappointed and distraught father, who has now brought his case to Jesus in desperation.
After a rebuke directed at the disciples, Jesus asked for the boy to be brought to Him, rebuked the foul spirit that had taken hold of the boy, and promptly cast that devil out and healed him of his illness.
The disciples were wondering why they had failed at their attempt at ministering to the boy, got a brief lesson that we will do well to learn from ourselves precious saints. See Jesus told them why they had failed as they did:
1. Matthew 17:20 — Because of Unbelief
Do you really believe that God can do what you are looking to Him to do in your life or situation, or are you simply going through the motions hoping that something will happen for you? Are you stepping out in faith to confront that spiritual barrier, problem or are you merely “hoping and praying” like some would say and it will either disappear or even someone else will come and fix it?
2. Matthew 17:21 — A Different Kind of Effort Needed — Prayer and Fasting.
This I think, is one of the most touching reminders to New Testament saints today, about the effectiveness of the combined discipline of prayer and fasting in dealing with the “stubborn”, unyielding strongman, that we may be faced with in life or ministry. Jesus prayed and fasted; He categorically said to the disciples, that there are wicked spirits and even barriers gates that are blocking Gods best within our life. Maybe there are some kinds of issues that you will be confronted with that can only be dealt with in the place of prayer combined with fasting precious saints.
Maybe there are addictions, setbacks, attitudes that need changing and only the Holy Spirit can do that word within you. See no matter how big the strongman that you may be up against today precious saints God has given you authority to rebuke the devil from your life. The scripture tells us in the gospel of Matthew chapter 12.
Matthew 12:29 “Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.”
Who can bind you? If you have put your faith in Jesus Christ, you have His power and authority to bind evil and loose God's plans in any situation precious saints.
Why do we bind? Well Jesus commented on the need for binding evil in the above scripture of Matthew 12:29. Jesus explained that we must first bind the strongman before we can plunder his house. When we are facing an evil stronghold in our life, we must first use our inherited authority, as children of God to bind the evil forces involved and in this case it can include prayer and fasting prior. After that, we can loose, or call forth God's plans for restoration even with the most stubborn spirits.
What happens when we bind you might ask? Well Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them" Matthew 18:18-20
When we bind something, we declare it unlawful (or evil) based on God's word. Because we stand as co-heirs in Jesus Christ, we have his authority to execute this judgment on the forces of evil precious saints (Psalm 149:5-9).
Therefore, do not be alarmed at what you are seeing manifest in the natural right now, because what you are seeing is no longer hidden! The enemy would like you to respond in fear, but God wants to bring all things to the light. And as these things are brought to the light, but do not be afraid or dismayed. The hidden activities of the enemy are being revealed so to overthrow demonic thrones that have brought great destruction to lives and creation. God is sorting out evil precious saints!
"When a king sits on his throne to judge, he winnows out all evil with his eyes." (Proverbs 20:8)
"He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble." (Luke 1:52)
There truly is a great battle going on around us precious saints and fasting is a form of warfare that brings us directly into the battle against the forces of darkness. See spiritual Warfare directly conflicts with demonic strongholds and deception that requires spiritual weaponry and armour according to Ephesians 6:11. Warfare Prayer is the application of strategic-level spiritual warfare to uproot the prevailing spiritual strongholds that hinder the advancing of Gods kingdom within a person or person’s life.
The demonic realm is so stirred up to rage against the victories we are getting from seeing thrones, gates and altars toppling this weekend. We must not be discouraged or deterred from moving forward to take back God's inheritance in our life and the nations. Though the enemy rages, we will see the Kingdom of God and His throne occupy hearts, regions, and nations precious saints. No matter what the enemy is doing now, he always over-play his hand through pride, which will cause hidden things to be revealed and his strategies to be turned upon his own camp precious saints.
So, if you need any incentive to fast such as seeing thrones, gates and altars destroyed (apart from the primary benefit of the deeper intimacy with and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit that it produces), then start making it apart of your weekly lifestyle also precious saints!
PRAYER FOCUS DAY 4:
Do you have any “stubborn and unyielding” strongman and problems that you are experiencing in your life right now? List them one by one and bring them before the throne of Grace today for the Lord to see your freedom.
Come with boldness and in faith as you wait on the Lord in fasting over this period; cry out to Him in Prayers, trusting that He will respond to your prayer of faith as He honours His word in Your life in the Name of Jesus.
Pray for God to turn the failures in your life to victory in the precious Name of Jesus.
Ask Him to turn every embarrassment and shame in your life into occasions of praise and glory to His Name!
Confess this prayer: Heavenly Father in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I recognize that by virtue of my relationship with You Lord, that I have engaged in warfare with the kingdom of satan.
My first step is to declare my absolute allegiance to You, Lord Jesus— the Captain of the Lord’s host, and my Lord and Saviour. I commit myself to You and Your leadership wholeheartedly, and I place my life fully in Your hands. As Your Word tells us, I equip myself now with the full Armor of God in Ephesians 6:11-18, so that I can stand victorious in this battle. I also pull down, in the mighty name of Jesus, any stronghold or strong man in my life that hinders me. Lord Jesus, help me in this battle, so that I can follow You without obstruction.
Lord, I also remove any high place (Throne, Gate or Altar) in my life that may be hindering me— any allegiance to an old pattern or behaviour that may be offensive to You. I lay it down now, Lord, and I place it at Your feet. I will join with my fellow believers joining in this coming 4 day fast and may they also receive their breakthroughs and see their requests be answered during and after this fast in the mighty and powerful name of Jesus Christ.
I command every stronghold of fear, worry and anxiety to be pulled down in your life.
Lord I decree and declare that every stronghold of anger in my life to be destroyed and the demon cast out back to the pit of hell today in Jesus mighty name.
Lord any agent of darkness masquerading as a friend, be exposed and brought to the light in the mighty name of Jesus
Lord whatever evil altar is speaking against my life, my health, business, my family and my properties be destroyed by the Holy Spirit fire in the mighty name of Jesus
Lord I command all strongman and evil patterns in my life to depart and go back to the pit of hell now, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Lord I release the fire of the Holy Spirit against every evil strongman in my father’s house in the mighty name of Jesus.
Lord I break every cycle of evil pattern in my life in the mighty name of Jesus.
Lord I command every evil cycle existing in my family to be broken today, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Let every plan of the enemy to stop my miracles be broken to pieces today, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Let the blood of Jesus erase the legal ground that the enemy has against me, in the mighty name of Jesus.
I command all the strongholds of the enemy in my life be abolished today, in the mighty name of Jesus.
I command all words contrary to God’s word spoken against or over me to fall to the ground and bear no fruit, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Lord, I release fiery angels to remove every obstacle on my path to success in the mighty name of Jesus.
Lord, all that I am, and all that I have, I commit fully to You. I offer myself to You as one who will engage in spiritual warfare for the sake of Your kingdom, one who will pull down strongholds in Your name— not only individual strongholds but also national ones. And I will be one who removes the high places in my own life and in the realm of the church. Please use me, for the sake of Your kingdom and Your eternal purposes. Amen!
Every loss, delay, or disruption that I have ever suffered or am suffering because of the operations of this spirit in my life, is hereby underwritten by the blood of Jesus, through the completed works of Christ on the cross of Calvary.
I break free from every hinderance; I break my family free of every hinderance; I break this church free from every hinderance; I break my destiny free in the Name of Jesus.
I receive strength in Christ to move forward in progress and prosperity. I will not be discouraged; I will not be confounded; I will not be dismayed.
Precious saints you have been praying for God to show or tell you what to do.
Today, you will go a step further by praying for Him to give you both the wisdom and divine strategies to accomplish the vision He has put in your heart, and the strategies to accomplish the breakthrough you are believing Him for, or the establishment of the prophetic words that have been spoken into your life.
Again, specifically bring the new month of February before God, and pray for God to release / reveal the strategies that you need for the new season ahead.
Pray for increased sensitivity to the voice and leading of the Holy Spirit and for clarity to understand His promptings.
Pray for God to overturn the wisdom table of the adversary and turn their schemes to defraud, rob or cheat you of your rightful reward, to be frustrated and annulled in the Name of Jesus.
I Call forth and Pray for the release of the provisions, resources and helpers that are needed in each month, for God’s counsel/purpose for the month of February by calling forth your season / your destiny to be fulfilled in Jesus Mighty Name!
Thank God in advance and in faith, for answering your prayers, and for the miracles / blessings / breakthroughs / testimonies / victories that the remaining of 2022 will bring into your life, as the Lord tarries.
Look back over the past 4 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.
As Jesus has said concerning the power in fasting and prayers, your faith should go up a notch over this period of your fasting for the last 4 days, as you believe and expect that there will be a shifting and resolution of all those issues over the next few days!
Pray for a new and great manifestation of God’s miracle power in your life, 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 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.
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 that the Lord’s light shall break forth like the morning and that you would also shine like the morning light and break through all darkness around you in Jesus Mighty Name! (Isaiah 60:1-4)
Pray that you would “arise” in boldness and “shine” precious saints, so you can positively impact all those around you in your family and all else in Jesus Mighty Name!
Pray that your light has come, and favour shall be your portion in Jesus Mighty Name! (Psalm 5:12)
Pray that your loved ones, sons and daughters will come home that have gone away from the Lord.
Pray for the salvation of friends and family before His soon coming in Jesus Mighty Name!
Pray this prayer: Father, we are confident of this very thing; that He who has begun a decent work in us; and in Robert Clancy’s Ministry will fulfil 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 & declare out loud: “By God’s grace as we have met this year of 2022, that the remaining will continue to be a year of preparing for the Lords coming for me.”
Pray for all the single people partaking in the fast who are seeking life partners. Ask God to guide them to the person who will really be a blessed spouse. Pray for wisdom, guidance, and strength to overcome fleshly desires and keep them ready for your soon coming! Amen
Shalom, Shalom, Shalom
