Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16: 13 -14.
Casting down the strongholds in Jesus’ name:
A stronghold is defined as “something” that holds you back from your walk with the LORD Jesus Christ. What is holding you back from spending quality time in fasting and praying?
Word: When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Nehemiah 1: 4
Thought: “Seeing our world through the eyes of Jesus”
Nehemiah intensely mourned about the condition of Jerusalem, but he didn’t just talk about it. After his initial grieving, he prayed, pouring his heart out to God, and he looked for ways to improve the situation. Nehemiah fasted and prayed for several days, expressing his sorrow for Israel’s sin and his desire that Jerusalem would again come alive with the worship of one true God.
Nehemiah called the people to intercede with tears and repentance. How can we be without compassion for our children, youngsters, and families who are trapped in the grip of Satan? Isn’t it our responsibility to pray for them?
Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father, give us the grace to pray like Nehemiah for those who are afflicted and for our nation for a great revival. In Jesus’ mighty name – Amen.
Have a Victorious walk in Christ
