Blessed be the Lord God Almighty for His gracious provisions in our lives. As individuals, as families and as a church organization, we have surely experienced manifold blessings of God. To Him alone be all the glory, honour, praise, power, dominion and majesty, now and forevermore. The year 2020 has been eventful. I indeed appreciate the testimonies of Divine All-Round Sufficiency which God has given to us in various ways, in different dimensions and at varying levels.
As we round off the year 2020 and going into the New Year 2021, I am persuaded of great and mighty things which the Lord God will do in our midst. Praise the Lord!
God led Joshua to tell the children of Israel; “Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you” (Joshua 3:5). Spiritual preparation always precedes the release of spiritual and supernatural blessings.
As individuals, as families, as a church and as a nation, I believe that we have great expectations and the word of God assures us that our expectation shall not be cut off or disappointed (Proverbs 24:14). In order for this to happen, prayer is important. Through prayer we invoke heaven’s presence – opening the door to God who answers prayers to act on our behalf – Psalm 65:2.
As we begin this 40-day prayer and fasting session (December 23, 2020 to January 31, 2021), I urge us individually and corporately to be committed to it. It promises to be a unique experience for as many as are committed to it.
Note that this prayer booklet is a compilation of prayers from the National, Children Ministry and the Global Foursquare Church. We will join the Global Foursquare Family in 21 Days of Fasting and Prayers which will run concurrently from January 1, 2021.
Beloved brethren and people of God, we must all be determined to pray – unceasing, unwavering, consistent, earnest and effectual prayer of the righteous that avail much (James 5:16).
All our local churches, zones, districts, axes and regions are expected to purposely use this prayer guide which has been carefully and painstakingly prepared by our National Prayer Ministry and ensure there are prayer vigils on Fridays throughout the period.
You are also at liberty to incorporate other prayer inputs from the local church. Let us ensure that no one is left out of this prayer arrangement. May the good Lord reward our participation as we do it in the spirit of love, obedience, cooperation, unity and oneness in Jesus name.
I appreciate our Prayer Ministry led by Rev. Jonathan Fatoye for their efforts in its production
Please note that those above 70 years of age, those who are pregnant and those on medication are required to be sensitive to their body needs.
