Prayer & Fasting

I’m so excited to be partnering for the 2015 Prayer & Fasting Journey with my Pastors, Apostle Bill & Dr. D’Ann Johnson.  What an incredible year we have in store.  We have created the guide below as a tool to help you declare and decree the Word of God over your life daily as we journey for 21 days together in prayer and fasting.  We will use the Word in prayer to saturate your heart and mind with what God has says, which you may find to be in direct contrast with what you see or what you may feel.  At the end of the journey you will see transformation in your thoughts, your ways, and your walk with God.  The Word of God is POWERFUL!  The WORD + PRAYER + FASTING = A LIFE OF POWER.

2015 Prayer and Fasting Guide VOP

If you have not fasted before or if you desire to know more about fasting please refer to the resource links below.  Prayerfully during these weeks you will learn the effects of the foods you eat and the power that comes from disciplining your body, soul and mind to allow God to grant you spiritual insight, knowledge, and wisdom.

I’m really basic on my fasts – usually keep it really simple and eat standard veggies and fruits. Click here for types of food to include and types of food to avoid in your Daniel Fast.  You may be adventurous and interested in some of these Daniel Fast recipes.  Click on the link to download daniel-recipes.

Materials developed by the late Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ have always been a blessing to me both in my personal fasting life and in workshops that I’ve personally taught. Click link for Seven Steps to Fasting (Bill Bright Adaptation).  It is a modified reference sheet that may help you with the basics of fasting.

Also, in recent years I’ve been immensely blessed by the simplicity of fasting as taught by Jentezen Franklin. Here is a resource adapted from some of his materials: Fasting Guideline (Jentzen Franklin).

I am so excited about being apart of the 21 day fasting and prayer journey that I cannot sleep. Church is in a few hours but I trust that God is going to give me supernatural strength. I am like Simeon I’m going into this fast with an expectation that the Lord will show up in each of our lives.

Today’s meditation pointed me to Psalm 119. I’m enjoying myself praying the Word of God…and this Psalm is all about His Word. It truly is palpable and life-giving. There is no dilution when we make God’s Word our prayer. I’m loving this! Thx, Lady Ferne!

Thanking and praising God for my 21 day fasting and prayer. I have received spiritually growth and inner peace. I am happy to say my sister and brother in New York will be attending church. I no longer will worry about family and friends who are not saved. I will just give it ALL up to God. He has heard my prayers. I know he will be with me always. Looking forward to more family members being saved this year as well as my spiritual growth! In Jesus name.
