Prayer and Fasting

Glory to God!

We have completed the first 7 days of our 21 days of prayer and fasting. The focus during these 3 weeks is to reach up, reach in and reach out, respectively. To help us on our journey to transformation, Richard is sending a daily devotional from the Book of Nehemiah in which we follow the example of Nehemiah and how he, together with the people of Israel, rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. You can read the 21-day devotional here

During this second week of our fasting and praying we will be focusing on reaching in. This means praying for the Church and joining other believers in intercession to rebuild walls in our church and the Body of Christ in Frankfurt. We are excited to be be part of a joint prayer meeting on Wednesday evening at 19:30 at KLF together with many other churches in Frankfurt. It will be a powerful time of worship and intercession as we seek God and stand in the gap together.

Already during our pre-meeting prayer yesterday, we sensed an increase in spiritual dynamic as we worshipped and sought God for the meeting. Prayer and fasting makes us more sensitive to God, more focused in prayer and empowers us to bring heaven on earth! Consequently the meeting was powerful as we worshipped and as God spoke to us through prophetic words and the preaching of His Word. In his message, entitled, "Warring with your prophetic word", Alexander spoke to us about how we need to apply God's prophetic words given to us in our lives so that we will be established (2 Chronicles 20:20). Rather than seeking prophets to get another word from God that we forget, Alexander challenged us to remember the prophetic words given to us and to decree and declare God's Word over our lives (1 Sam 17:41-47); discern and desire the fulfilment of God's Word (Dan 9:1-3) and allow God to develop and discipline us as we depend on Him and His Word (1 Tim 4:14; 2 Pet 1:5-8). We praise God for the transforming power of His Word and that He wants to establish us as we believe His prophets and apply His Word to our lives!
