WOW Day 7 already!  The most worthy way to end this fast is taking time out to focus on praising and thanking God for His Love, His goodness, His mercy,  and His grace!  Hallelujah!      “I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU LORD FOR BEING SO GOOD TO ME”

Scriptures: 

Personalize each scripture in your prayer time so that the Word becomes a part of you!

Psalms 107:1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

  • I will give thanks to the Lord, for he is good to me

Psalm 118:24  This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

  • This is the day that you have made Lord and I will rejoice and be glad in it!

Psalm 92:1   It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:  2  To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night, 3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.  For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

  • It is a good thing for me to give thanks to the Lord and to sing praise unto His name for He is the Most High.  He shows me His love in the morning and His faithfulness every night.  Lord you have made me happy and I will get the victory by the works of your hands.

Psalm 138:8  The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

  • Thank you Lord for perfecting the things that concern me. 

John 11:40  Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?  41  Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

  • Lord today I say “I believe”.  I lift up my eyes right now to say thank you!

1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Thank you God, for giving me the victory in every area of my life through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

1Th 5:18  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

  • Today, I will give you thanks in every thing because this is your will for me in Christ.

Psalms 150:6  Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.

  • I will praise the Lord

Have a great, praise filled day!  Praying that for your faithfulness and obedience God will bless you according to I Cor. 2:9 Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 

You have set the stage to be blessed in 2018 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteous; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Day #6 – Your Personal Concerns/Need January 13, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — pastorowens2 @ 6:07 am

Sharing another one of my favorite songs with you from the past!

 

Yesterday’s focus was interceding on behalf of others, today we will focus on praying for your personal concerns and  need.  As you pray and seek God today focus on these four specific areas of need: spiritual, physical emotional and financial.  Write down a least one thing in each area and pray over it three times today.   Pray not being fearful to talk to God about what you desire Him to do in your life.  Believe me, God wants to bless you and give you the desires of your heart.  As God was for Abram so is He for you  – Jehovah-jireh, your Provider!  God Knows It All!

Psalms 23:1 The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding

Mat 6:11  Give us this day our daily bread. 

Mat 6:25  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30  Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. 

Mat 7:7  Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? 

Philippians 4:6  Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

 

 

Day 5 – Intercession for Others January 12, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — pastorowens2 @ 6:15 am

Day 4 – Prayer and Fasting Focus:  Intercession for Others 

Intercession:  A prayer to God on behalf of another;

Today we are focusing on praying for others.  As the Lord brings people (family, friends, even your enemies) into your thoughts “pray for them”.  Also take time today to pray for our President and our Nation.

Numbers_21:7  Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.

Job 42:10- And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

Matthew 5:44  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 

 Ephesians 6:18- Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

I Timothy 2:1– I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;  2: For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty; 3: For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much

I Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.

 

As you pray for others today – I am praying for you!

 

Day 4 – Reflections

Filed under: Uncategorized — pastorowens2 @ 5:01 am

As I  reflect on this day I say  “Wow”  GOD IS SO AWESOME -He knows what I need, when I need it and as long as I am willing to seize the opportunity, blessings flow.

Obedience is better than sacrifice……

 

 

 

Day 4 – Obedience January 11, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — pastorowens2 @ 12:11 pm

 

Today’s prayer focus is “Obedience”.  Biblical obedience in a nutshell is just “doing” what God asks you to do without adding to or taking away from the direction.  In our daily walk with God this can sometimes be challenging, but, one thing I do know, if God calls you to it, and you step out and do it, He will take you through it!  At the wedding feast in John 2:5 Jesus’ mother spoke this word to his servants, ……Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”  …….they did and God moved.  I believe miracles still happen today for those you believe! Today ask the Father to give you strength and power to honor Him as you step out in obedience and “whatever He says to you to do, do it“!

SCRIPTURES

Deuteronomy 13:4  Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Joshua 24:24  And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey.

1Samuel 15:22  And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

Acts_5:29  Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

Romans 5:19  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Romans 6:12  Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

Romans 6:16  Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Hebrews 5:8  Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

obey2

What has God been asking you to do, let go, be?  What is holding you back?  Philippians 4:13 will give you the courage you need to step up and out!

Say a prayer of obedience to following God today as he shows you his way

Today’s Prayer and Fasting Focus is “Receiving Healing“.    We are fasting and praying for physical healing and emotional healing.   How desperate are you today to let the Lord heal you in the places that others don’t see?

1 Exodus 15:26     ……I am the LORD that healeth thee.”

 

Isaiah 58:8  Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much

Psalms 30:2  O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

Psalms 107:20  He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

Psalms 103:1  A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3  Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Isaiah 53:4-5 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

1 Peter 2:24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Healing belongs to the children of God through Christ Jesus shed blood on Calvary’s cross.  Will you today receive the finished work for your healing both physically and emotionally, right now by faith?

Mark_11:23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
