Scripture For Meditation — Joshua 3:5 NIV; Philippians 2:13 NIV

1. As we begin our fasting and prayers, start with thanksgiving, praise and worship. READ: Psalm 107 —

If it had not been for the Lord on our side, where would we have been.

Through the good times and the bad times, His love and mercy have been constant. When we have been good, it was He who helped us; when we have erred, He has been merciful; when we have been down, He has sustained us; When it looked like we were going to drown in the pool of despair and troubles, somehow God kept us afloat. He is ever faithful!

2. Consecrate (purify, sanctify) yourself. In order words, examine yourself, asking God for mercy and cleansing through the blood of Jesus Christ, where you have erred or gone astray.

3. Spend quality time to wait in God’s presence, rededicating yourself to Christ. Pledge your allegiance to Him again, while seeking to know Him more. Surrender to Him, ask Him to to fill you with His fullness.


• Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalms 139:23-24 NIV)

• But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. (Psalms 19:12-13 NIV)

• Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. (Psalms 51:10-12 NIV)

• Fill me with more of You, and work in me to will and to act in order to fulfill Your good purpose.

In Jesus’ name — Amen!
