Father, thank you for the blood of Jesus that purchased our salvation. Thank you that we’re able to fast for the love of it, not for the “earn” of it. Thanks to the spotless Lamb and His blood shed for us, we don’t have to do anything to earn our salvation! We didn’t have to fast to punish ourselves and earn something with You. But we have the privilege of fasting so that we can feast on You! Wow, Lord! We get to simply dine — to come to the table and feast, no fee, no prerequisite other than accepting your free gift of grace.

I (We) enjoyed our time with You these hundred days! Now help us resume eating without losing an ounce of our intimacy with You. Without losing a shred of our sensitivity and obedience to Your Spirit.

Father, you know our causes for fasting. May our voices be heard on High. Hear from heaven and revive spiritually, increase faith, give a breakthrough, saved loved ones, heal bodies, provide financially, rescue businesses, give anointing and provision for ministries, restore marriages, give wisdom and direction, loose bonds of wickedness, undo heavy burdens, set the oppressed free, and break every yoke of slavery!

Lord, You promised that when we engaged in the chosen fast our light would break forth like the dawn and Your glory would be our rear guard. Our dark night of confusion would become like the noon day. So Father, for those fasting for guidance, I claim wisdom and direction as clear as the noon day. For those praying for protection for loved ones, I claim your glory and presence as their very protection.

I speak blessing and anointing and the authority of Your Holy Spirit over every home represented in this fast. Isaiah 58:12 promises that when we enter Your chosen fast, “Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations.”

Where families and relationships are in ruin and desolation, restore, Lord! The meanings of the words in this passage are full of promise for families. “Rebuilding ancient ruins” means:

To rebuild, or establish, restored exiles. [Restore our lives and relationships, Lord.]

To build and establish something new in our lives, that will last and continue for generations, build our lives, prosper the works of our hands, prosper Threeniti Limited,, Timeterest,, Behold Limited do this father for the Glory of your name [and rebuild new families, some from waste places, Lord, as you know.]

To “cause to continue” and to be made permanent. [Father, in each faster’s life, build a godly home and heritage that will last and continue for generations.]

In the phrase, “You will raise up a foundation for many generations,” the word “up” means:

to arise, stand up

become powerful

to come on the scene – [Lord, if there are unsaved children and grandchildren, parents, or spouses, cause them to come on the scene spiritually! We claim them for Your kingdom!]

to be established, to endure, to be fixed, to be proven, to set up, erect, to raise up, rouse, stir up, to station

to make binding

Wow! What implications for us, God!

“Foundation” has the idea of fixing something firmly: “to found, to be settled, to ordain.”

May Your stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, be our sure foundation … for our families, for our businesses, for our ministries, for our careers, for every step that we take this year 2023 and beyond.

Father, this same chapter contains Your promise to satisfy our needs in drought and strengthen our frame. Even now, You will make us like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Some of us are worn out physically, drained dry spiritually compared to previous years, and some of us are in a drought financially. Make us like a well-watered garden, Lord! Like a spring whose waters never fail.

Thank you in advance for hearing our prayers and answering.

But Father, as much as we want needs met and prayers answered, we want YOU! Fill us — satisfy us with Your presence. Holy Spirit, breathe fresh upon the Word each day. Give us an undying passion for Jesus Christ. Help us tarry before the throne in secret prayer. Baptize us in the fire of Your holiness! Break our hearts over what breaks Yours. May the things that delight You, delight us. For then…we will have the desires of our heart.

Holy Spirit, fall! Fall on Us. Fall on my brother. Fall on my mother. Fall on my relatives. Breathe on us afresh. Like a mighty wind, light the fire again!  Come magnify the Son in us — today, tomorrow, next month, all year! All the day of our lives! Show the Savior to the world through our lives! We want to take Your Truth in Your power to a lost and dying world.

In Jesus’ mighty, precious, holy name, Amen! So be it! Amen.
