21 Days of Prayer and Devotion

Here is something I picked up some time ago and thought it would help those of you who are looking for things to pray about while you are fasting. This is a list of 21 things you can do to optimize your fast. God Bless as you journey together.

21 Days of Prayer and Fasting

I.  Preparing for Victory:

Day 1 Reflection – reflect on the purpose of the fast to worship God, to seek His face, preparations to fight through, write down problems which need solving, situations need healing, expectations of new beginnings. Isaiah 58; Isaiah 42;Isaiah 43;  Matthew 6:17-18; Matthew 9:14-15; Daniel 1,9,10; Joel 2:1-17; Matthew 17:21; Acts 10; 1 Corinthians 7:1-5; 2 Chronicles 20:1-4; James 4:1-9; Mark 9:14-29

Day 2 Resolution – purpose in your heart that you will see and hear God’s heart during this time of fasting and prayer; set your heart to live a fasted life; time will be spent in God’s presence – sometimes talking and most of the time listening to Him – this fast will set the tone for the entire year ahead. Matthew 22:37; Daniel 9:3; Psalm 27:8; Ephesians 4:13-32; Philippians 4:8; Colossians 3:1-3; Matthew 6:17-18

Day 3 Repentance – (day of weeping) time of godly sorrow for every known, hidden, secret or revealed sin in your life and be willing to turn from them to God.  2 Corinthians 7:8-11; 2 Peter 3:9; 2 Chronicles 7:14; Acts 17:30; Revelations 2:16, 3:3, 3:19; Psalm 51; Acts 3:19: Daniel 9:3-5

Day 4 Restore– Relationships with God and man – let God impress upon your heart anyone you need to forgive and seek forgiveness from.  When He speaks, obey! Matthew 5:44; Matthew 6: 14-15; Matthew 18: 21-35; Mark 11:21-26; Luke 6:20-38; 1 John 1:5

Day 6 Revisit – go back and revisit your time before salvation when the Lord was calling you; revisit the place in your mind of your salvation; revisit the power, the wonder, the overwhelming love, the sense of forgiveness you experienced on that day. Romans 5:1-10;  Rom. 10:9-13; Ephesians 2:1-8; 5:5-8; 1 Timothy 1:9-17; 2 Timothy 1:9

Day 7 Release – refuse to worry about anything.  Focus on what God can and will do. Release and surrender all to God by the power of the Holy Spirit. Remember, worrying is choosing not to believe God.  Replace worry with prayer. Psalm 37:1-11; Matthew 6:25-34; Philippians 4:4-9; 1 Peter 5:6-10

Day 8 Restoration – believe God for healing, renewal and repair in your life and the life of others.  God is a Restorer of every area of our lives.  God is able!  Matthew 8:1-4; Ephesians 4:1-16; Joel 2:25; Galatians 6:1; Psalm 51; 1 Peter 2:25
