We had the quarterly Prayers and fasting in Church today.
It was such a refreshing time in the Presence of the Lord.
Prayer Direction and Burden
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. Revelation 21:5-7King James Version (KJV)
When we began the year the Lord gave us this word. And in the quarter that preceded we prayed to experience newness of life in all areas of our lives according to the promise of God.
What is the Newness we seek?
The Newness we seek is;
- To walk in Newness of life and Revival
- To walk in the will of God
- To experience the New creation Realities
- To experience newness in our marriages
- To enjoy the rich promises of God concerning us in scriptures
- To have our territories enlarged
- To experience God, His grace, blessing, power and wonders in a way we have never experienced before
- To experience a change in our current situation
- To experience a personal change or visitation in every area of our lives
A promise that Cannot fail
We saw that this promise cannot fail as it is of Him who sits on the throne… They are faithful and true.
Nothing can stop Him from fulfilling His promises in our lives not the whole hordes of hell combined.
For He is the God of all flesh nothing is too difficult for Him.
Faith to obtain the Promises
We saw that the only thing that could hinder God rich promises form being fulfilled in our lives is our selves. Our doubts, fears and unbelief etc.
We prayed severally to the Lord and asked for the Spirit of faith… We prayed we believe, Lord help thou our unbelief.
Theme for second Quarter (Q2)- Breaking Forth on all Sides
we read Psalm 18..
We saw that sometimes there things, strongholds that encamp us that seek to prevent us from entering into our newness.
In the quarter therefore our focus will be to pray that we will breakthrough this obstacles and stronghold into our Newness.
And herein lies the secret to breakthrough
‘I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.
5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
6 In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
In this quarter we will pray like David did and God will answer us.
Jabez prayed also for such breakthrough and enlargement.. 1 Chron 4:9-10
9 And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.
10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
God will grant our request also… this quarter we will begin to experience our breakthrough.
Putting Faith to Action
As our expression of faith we agreed to do three things
- Write out our prayer request/goals, things we are believing God to do for us
- Pray the Prayer of Jabez and for increase and multiplication in every area of our lives daily.
- To be careful to write down the answers to the prayers as God answer us
We are trusting God for abundance of testimonies as we gather next quarter.
We prayed for our marriages, families and homes… We asked God for every member of the family that we will experience this newness.
