7 Days of Fasting and Prayer January 1st – 7th, 2013

Agape Bible Fellowship & Ministries Inc.
7 Days of Fasting and Prayer January 1st – 7th, 2013
Joel 1:14 (NKJV) Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly; Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and Cry out to the Lord.
Matthew 17:21 (KJV) “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”

·         January 1. Read Exodus 12:1-2. Reflect on this scripture and spiritually focus your mind as you step over into this new beginning. Pray that God open doors of opportunities for you this year. Pray for unrelenting breakthroughs.
·         January 2. Read Psalm 105:37. Reflect on this scripture and the blessings that God bestowed on you and your family thus far. Pray for more blessings this year.
·         January 3. Read Isaiah 58:12. Reflect on this scripture. How do you see yourself involved in the work of rebuilding in this church this year? Pray that God opens your eyes to unseen channels where you could be a blessing to your church and the kingdom of God this year.  
·         January 4th. Read 1 Samuel 16:1-13. Reflect on this passage. David was unnoticed and insignificant until God’s favor located him. Pray that your favors and promotions will find you wherever you are in Jesus name.
·         January 5th Read 2 Kings 2:19-22. Reflect on this passage. Many people are unproductive, not because they are in a badly situated area, but because the enemy has messed up the source of their joy. Pray to God that the power that healed the bitter water in the day of Elisha, change your situation to the best in Jesus name. Pray against all kinds of bitterness.
·         January 6th Read Nehemiah 2:11-20; 4:1-23. Reflect on this passage. Nehemiah was used in his day for the work of rebuilding of the wall of Jerusalem. Pray that God use you as your church works on the building project this year. Pray against all obstacles to the work.
·         January 7th Read Psalm 51:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17. Ask God to show you ways through which you could be drawn closer to Him always. Pray for the renewal of your commitment to Christian service this year.

2013 Theme: Rebuilding the Foundation
Text Verse: 
Isaiah 58:12 (NIV)Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.


Theme Hymn: #412, My Faith Has Found a Resting Place

1.    My faith has found a resting place,
Not in device or creed;
I trust the ever living One,
His wounds for me shall plead.
I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.
2.    Enough for me that Jesus saves,
This ends my fear and doubt;
A sinful soul I come to Him,
He’ll never cast me out.
3.    My heart is leaning on the Word,
The living Word of God,
Salvation by my Savior’s Name,
Salvation through His blood.
4.    My great Physician heals the sick,
The lost He came to save;
For me His precious blood He shed,
For me His life He gave.
