Prayer and Fasting for the Church and leadership Day 38 of 40

Scripture:

1 John 3:23

This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.

Mark 9:22-23

The Passion Translation

22 “It tries over and over to kill him by throwing him into fire or into the water. But please, if you’re able to do something, anything—have compassion on us and help us!”

23 Jesus said to him, “What do you mean ‘if’?If you are able to believe,all things are possible to the believer.”

Prayer: Father, thank You for today. Thank You for sending Your Son to redeem us back to You. Lord, as Your body of believers, we don’t have a problem believing in Your son and essentially You also as per the general work of redemption. Lord, where we all struggle is in the area of believing Your Son for our specific needs. We struggle in appropriating the finished work into real issues that trouble us daily. We believe You exist but we have difficulty believing You and Your Son that what You said You have accomplished 2000 years ago applies to us today, that they apply to us NOW for appropriation in our lives. Lord, Help our unbelief and come through for us by Your generous grace where we struggle to believe You. As a consequence, we compete, we compare and we condone loveless-ness and division amongst us. Like Cain, we murder the brethren with our words and actions because we do not have the fruit that shows Your endorsement of us and our work. Forgive us Lord, as You restore us back to the place of believing You and receiving all that You died to give us individually in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

Dear Friends, as surely as we live in this part of eternity, storms will certainly come! Not if, but when. Some of us are in one now. Some are just getting out of one now while some are in a period of respite. When those issues arise, what you believe will be tested and ruffled. Jesus said in

Mark 9:49-50

The Passion Translation

49 “Everyone will pass through the fire and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt. 50 Salt is excellent for seasoning. But if salt becomes tasteless, how can its flavor ever be restored? Your lives, like salt, are to season and preserve. So don’t lose your flavor,[ae] and preserve the peace in your union with one another.”

Overcoming Unbelief by Beth

God seems to work in themes in my life. You know what I mean. Every sermon, morning devotional, and Christian radio program all coincidentally speak to me about the same subject for an uncomfortable length of time. I will even get a card in the mail from a Christian friend I haven’t seen in ten years and you guessed it. He will share a good word on the exact theme.

Soon after my fortieth birthday, everywhere I turned I heard a message on belief. I am humiliated to admit that I became somewhat annoyed not to be hearing more on the subjects I really needed. After all, I already was a believer, and if believers don’t believe, what on earth do they do?

Several weeks passed, and I still didn’t get it. Finally, one morning even Oswald Chambers had the audacity to bring up the subject in that day’s entry of My Utmost for His Highest. I looked up and exclaimed.  What is this all about? I sensed the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart, Beth, I want you to believe Me. I was appalled. Lord, I answered, Of course I believe in You. I have believed in You all my life. I felt He responded very clearly. Adamantly, I didn’t ask you to believe in Me. I asked you to believe Me.

I sat very puzzled for several moments until I was certain that the Holy Spirit had faithfully shed light on my pitifully small faith. I sensed Him saying. My child, you believe Me for so little. Don’t be so safe in the things you pray. Who are you trying to keep from looking foolish? Me or you?

I don’t mind telling you that my life changed dramatically after God interrupted my comfortable pace with the theme of belief. Some of it has been excruciating, and some of it has been the most fun I have had in my entire Christian life. I have a feeling this is one theme I probably will run into again and again in the course of my journey. Why? Because without faith, it is impossible to please Him. In other words, you and I will be challenged to believe Him from one season to the next, all of our days. And if we have even half a heart for God, he is likely to shake our perimeters and stir up a little excitement.

Believing God is never more critical than when we have strongholds that need to be demolished. Believing God is also rarely more challenging. Why? Because we have battled most of our strongholds for years and perhaps tried countless remedies in an effort to be free with very little success. The enemy taunts us with whispers like, “You will never be free. You have tried a hundred times. You go back every time. You are hopeless. You are weak. You are a failure. You don’t have what it takes.”  Every one of these statements about you is a lie if you are a believer in Christ. You do have what it takes. You have Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life. But you can’t just believe in Him to be free from your stronghold. You must believe Him. Believe He can do what He says He can do. Believe you can do what He says you can do. Believe He is who He says He is. And believe you are who He says you are.

You may be thinking, I want to believe! I just don’t have enough faith! God’s word records an encounter in Mark 9:14-24 to encourage every person who wants to believe. Christ met a man with a son who had been possessed by the enemy since childhood. No telling how many physicians, witch doctors, religious fanatics, wise men, and foolish men the father had sought to find freedom for his son. Imagine the glimmer of hope that kindled his soul when rumor circulated about the disciples of Jesus who were reputed to perform miracles. Then imagine his devastation when they too were added to the list of the failed. Jesus asked for the boy to be brought to Him. The father’s desperate plea could bring an empathetic lump to the throat to any parent: if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us. I love Jesus powerful retort: If you can…? Everything is possible for him who believes. The fathers replay comprises one of the most honest, priceless moments in the record of Christ human encounters. Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, I do believe. Then, as if Christ had caught his gaze eye to eye, reading his questioning mind, the father quickly restated, Help me overcome my unbelief!

I am convinced that God would rather hear our honest pleas for more of what we lack than a host of pious platitudes from an unbelieving heart. When I am challenged with unbelief, I have begun to make the same earnest plea to the one who would gladly supply. The following scripture- prayers are for the purpose of fueling your faith in the one who is faithful and fueling your belief in the one who is believable.

Please Remember

Its is always God’s will for you to be free from strongholds or captivities. As stated – We may not always be sure God wills to heal us physically in this life of every disease or prosper us with tangible blessings, but He always wills to free us from strongholds or captivities. John 10:10

You will never have to worry about whether you are praying in Gods will concerning strongholds. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free (Gal 5:1).

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead (Ephesians 1:18-20)

Please accept and celebrate two awesome truths derived from these Scriptures:

  1. God wields incomparably great power for those who choose to believe. Read again! Incomparably great power! More than enough to break the yoke of any bondage. Our belief unclogs the pipe and invites the power to flow.
  2. God applies the same power to our need that He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead. Does your stronghold require more power that it takes to raise the dead? Neither does mine! God can do it, fellow believer. I know because He says so. And I know because he is done it for me. Believe Him…and when you don’t, cry out earnestly, Help me overcome my unbelief!

Short Prayer for Self-Deliverance.

“Lord Jesus Christ, I believe You died on the cross for my sins and rose again from the dead. You redeemed me by Your blood and I belong to You, and I want to live for You. I confess all my sins-known and unknown- I’m sorry for them all. I renounce them all. I forgive all others as I want You to forgive me. Forgive me now and cleanse me with Your blood. I thank You for the blood of Jesus Christ which cleanses me now from all sin. And I come to You now as my deliverer. You know my special needs-the thing that binds, that torments, that defiles; that evil spirit, that unclean spirit—I claim the promise of Your word, “Whosoever that calleth on the name of the Lord shall be delivered.” I call upon You now. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, deliver me and set me free. Satan, I renounce you and all your works. I lose myself from you, in the name of Jesus, and I command you to leave me right now in Jesus’ name. Amen!”

Let it come from your heart and see the salvation of the Lord!

For those who are sick or unwell in whatever shape or form, or needing deliverance?

We come against the anomaly, I bind them, we curse them to their root and we cast them out by authority in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. We call forth a release of healing, deliverances and restoration into their lives in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Thank you Lord for testimonies that are abiding to your glory and honour and adoration. Thank you for souls that are being added to Your kingdom as a result of this message, the miracles that we are already seeing right now and manifesting for your glory in Jesus name, Amen. It is done! Rejoice!

Touch this spot highlighted as a point of contact and confess with your mouth – I AM HEALED, I AM DELIVERED and I AM RESTORED in my Spirit, Soul, Body and all around me in the name of JESUS Christ, Amen!!!

Begin to do what you could not do before and begin to confess until full healing, deliverance restoration becomes a fruit in your life in Jesus name, amen.  Stay hungry for all of God, stay angry and take back all that the enemy has held back in Jesus name, amen
