2022 Fasting & Prayer
How do I get the most out of this time of prayer and fasting?
Keep a journal/notebook to write the scriptures read below and what you feel the Lord is speaking to you on each passage. Read each prayer point and ask the Lord to reveal His will to you concerning each one as you read the coordinating passage. Don’t just read the prayers out loud, but read them first and then pray in your own words from your heart. Take the time to meditate on each one and once you pray to the Lord, quietly listen for His speaking/impressions/guidance to His truth in your life. Continue to pray throughout the year for these things, not just limiting it to this time of fasting. Be sure to include your own prayer points that you are believing for this year for your own personal life as well.

Father, as I begin this fast, anoint me with the Spirit of wisdom, of might and power, of counsel and understanding, of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. Give me insight and revelation.

Love is the core of who we should be as Christians. It is our love for one another that shows the world that we truly belong to Him.

If there are ANY seeds of unforgiveness or bitterness toward anyone at all, repent and ask the Lord to heal you.
READING PLAN: 1 John 1-5
Father, multiply our leaders this year. Put a servant’s heart in me. Anything that is selfish, I ask you to point out and uproot in my life. I recognize that you gave all for me, and I want to give all to you by serving the body of Christ in greater capacity.
READING PLAN: Titus 1-3
Father, increase the anointing in our services to see signs, wonders and miracles be multiplied in our church.

Global & National Government
WEK 3 Prayer Points & Reading Plans
Father, we pray for godly men and women to be raised up who fear the Lord and are filled with the Spirit to occupy offices of influence in this nation. Put a desire and a burden in them to carry the assignment of holiness into their counties, states and this nation.
READING PLAN: Esther 1-5
Father, we pray that every person with an antichrist agenda to lead this nation astray and away from you will be removed miraculously from their position. We pray that the turning of this nation will cause unbelievers to see your hand at work and turn towards you. Put a reverential fear of God into the homes of this nation again. Let the church arise from its place with boldness to take back this nation.
READING PLAN: Esther 6-10
Father, we pray for godly men and women in this nation to stand with boldness against the enslavement of our nation. Just as the four Hebrew men did in the time of Babylon with great boldness, we pray for the same boldness to arise in the hearts of the godly. We pray for the godly to stand for freedom in other countries around the world. For those that are willing to face extremities for release of the captives. We pray that the prideful will be brought low and the wisdom of the Lord to be honored around the world.
READING PLAN: Daniel 1-6
Father, we pray for whole nations to turn just as you turn Nineveh. Raise up prophets that will counsel kings, princes, and presidents. As they honor you, open supernatural doors for them to speak wisdom into their ears. We pray that leaders and governing officials will overturn wicked laws and establish ones that uphold your holy Word. Send revivalists into the lands and turn the hearts of the people to you.
READING PLAN: Jonah
Father, we pray for the global church body and its leadership. We pray that any that have gotten lukewarm, to receive the fire of the Holy Spirit in their bellies. We pray that those that have been faithful will be rewarded greatly; cause them to expand their reach and influence. We pray that each one will be given wisdom to operate at larger capacities. Release apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers into every dark and hungry area of the world for ministry and protect them by the armies of heaven to do mighty works.
READING PLAN: 1 Timothy 1-6
