Fasting Theme: Thou art Loosed from thine Infirmity!
Theme Scripture — Luke 13:10-16
The theme Scripture captures the heart of the Father for this year’s fasting and prayers.
The story is told of a woman who had been bound for 18 years, by what the Bible referred to as a disabling spirit — a Spirit of Infirmity. Her condition was such that she was bent over, and could in no way raise herself up.
There are many dear saints in the body; some of our brethren, and maybe, even you reading this, who may be in the same situation as the woman in this passage of scripture — You have been bent over by some disabling situation or the other for some time now, which has brought you to the place where you are in no way able to raise yourself up.
Luk 13:12 But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.”
What is your own Infirmity?
Feebleness (of body or mind); by implication malady; moral frailty: – disease, sickness, weakness.
It can also refer to want of strength and capacity required to:
• Understand a thing
• To do great things
• To restrain unwanted things from happening
• To bear trials and troubles
As we wait on the Lord in fasting and prayers over the next 21 days, we will be standing in agreement on His word and we will claim the promise of our deliverance from every disabling spirit or spirit of Infirmity that has limited us as a church, in our family or in our own personal lives.
We will believe together, that as we enter into the new year and indeed the new decade, we will walk in total freedom and we will experience the victory that is our rightful inheritance in Christ Jesus!
Luk 13:13 And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
