Day 1 - No Ups And Downs

 


Starting the year off with prayer and fasting is an absolute must for every believer who wants their upcoming year to be consecrated and reserved for God’s presence. For the next 21 days, we will be praying specific points directly from the Word Of God over our lives and family. 
That “new year, new you” policy is hogwash if you have no intention of DOING something to change. Most people will buy a journal, jot down the things they want to see changed, then do nothing (and I mean NOTHING) about it throughout the year. Don’t be that person. In this time of prayer and fasting, God will speak to YOU! He’ll tell you things to change, things to do, people to avoid and people to cling on to. Listen to His voice then DO WHAT HE SAYS. Things won’t progress in your life until you do the last thing God told you to do. He wants to speak to YOU. He wants to give YOU a message. He wants to direct YOUR steps. Too many people do what other people are doing instead of listening to God’s voice for their life. Take these next few weeks to hear what God is saying to you.

Here is a guide for your 21 days of prayer and fasting. Read the Scripture, pray the prayer and finish it by praising and thanking God for it. Don’t forget to write down the things God is saying to you! If you stick with this plan, 2017 will be a guaranteed success. In Jesus name! 


Scripture:

I will teach you wisdom’s ways
and lead you in straight paths.

When you walk, you won’t be held back;
when you run, you won’t stumble.

Take hold of my instructions; don’t let them go.
Guard them, for they are the key to life.

— Proverbs 4:11-13

 

Prayer & Confession:

“Father, allow me to hear your voice clearly this year. Speak to me and show me what I should do. Let your wisdom leads me on a straight path. I will never be confused again. I won’t go to the left. I won’t go to the right. I’ll go on the straight path you’ve created for me to go on. Thank you for your help. Thank you for speaking to me. Thank you that I’ll make progress every day this year. I will have no setbacks. There will be no speed bumps. Thank you for explosive progress! In Jesus name!”

Do something:

What is God telling you to do? Write it down and make plans to start ASAP. Don’t forget to thank Him for the blueprint for 2017. Do a little dance in advance.
