TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE OF OUR PRAYER AND FASTING PROGRAM As we pray and fast all through this week, realise what a great opportunity the Lord has created for you to apprehend His purpose and direction for you in the coming year, and give yourself to the instruction more than ever before. Create time in your day to pray and hear from the Lord, and be ready to note and act upon His leading and guidance, because He will speak to you. Punctuate your day with times of quality fellowship with the Lord, speaking in tongues and ministering to the Lord; deliberately create these avenues for your spirit to connect to the Lord; be conscious not to get caught up in your daily routine and miss out on such opportunities during your day, as you would make significant progress in the spirit as you do this. Study and put to work the thoughts and inatructions in this special exhortation on Prayer and Fasting by our man of God, Pastor Chris: EXCERPTS ON PRAYER AND FASTING - PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting (Mark 9:29) Sometimes as Christians, we miss God’s order of things. God is a God of order, and order gives meaning to things. For example, all around the world, people tend to confuse the order and say, “fasting and prayer,” instead of “prayer and fasting.” Prayer comes before fasting in the Scriptures. Not understanding the right order may account for the reason many people fast without praying, which is largely a waste of time and effort. The emphasis should be on praying. It’s a call to prayer, and because you’re praying, you’re consciously staying away from eating. The fast is on, because you’re praying, not because you’re not eating. Acts 13:2 says, “As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said….” Notice the order: they ministered to the Lord and fasted. How do you minister to the Lord? It’s in worship, prayer, praise and thanksgiving. The focus was on ministering to the Lord, and because of this, they fasted. Then the Lord spoke to them after they had prayed. The New Year is just around the corner, and in preparing for it, you must spend time to pray and fast. Make sure you participate fully, bearing in mind the purpose of the fast: praying; ministering to the Lord. Some people occupy themselves with various irrelevant activities during prayer and fasting, so they don’t feel the hunger until it’s time to break the fast, no; it’s not that way. Aside from praying, the only activities you should indulge in and encourage are such that would further inspire you to pray, such as studying and meditating on the Word. Take your Bible and some Christian books to read, and messages to listen to or watch on your devices. Put the TV off, and cast the newspapers and magazines aside. Possibly, put off your phone or turn off the network; you don’t need any distraction. If you desire specific outstanding results in the coming year that only the anointing can produce, you need to do this: Spend quality time to speak in tongues and position yourself for achievements and significant exploits, not just in the coming year, but in the years ahead. PRAYER Blessed Lord, I thank you for all that you’ve prepared for me in the coming year. My spiritual antenna is raised to hear and receive your instructions, guidance, and wisdom that’ll propel me in the path of greatness that you’ve ordained for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. #GLORIOUS2019 #CEAMC #GatheringSheaves
Prayer at 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT) - Fri Aug 17 “Christ is my wisdom; therefore, I talk and deal wisely; He directs my thinking. He has anointed my mind to receive sanctified thoughts; wisdom is seen and heard in me”. Glorious affirmations from today's Rhapsody. Make sure you get a copy, read it and share with others too. Visit http://rhapsodyofrealities.org Matthew 7:24-27 says, "Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it". At 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT), we'll pray in tongues of the Spirit for all 15min, and also reflect deeply on the verses of scripture above. Be prepared to receive the ministrations of the Spirit to your heart as you pray. It's our month of reflection. Blessed be the Lord. Amen. God bless you.
#AFFIRMATIONTRAIN 14TH AUGUST. I affirm that I am set on the path of success, glory, victory and divine destiny! I am walking in preordained pathways, for predestination is at work in me! The course of events in my life has been structured by God to bring Him glory, having established me to fulfil my destiny of Him! I live and walk by faith and not by sight; I am not moved by what I see, feel or hear; I am moved only by the Word of God! My life goes forward and upward only and nothing is impossible unto me. I am a partaker of God's life-changing Word. I am made a better person daily by the power of God's Word. The Word is working mightily in me because I am a doer and not just a hearer. I am empowered by the Holy Spirit to impact my world for Jesus Christ through the power of God's Word and the Spirit working effectually in me. I am rightly positioned today, in God’s place of opportunity for me. Wisdom guides me and moves me from within to take the right steps that are consistent with God’s purpose and calling for my life. I will never lose my way; for God is at work in me, both to will and to do His good pleasure. Blessed be God.

#AFFIRMATIONTRAIN 11TH AUGUST. I affirm that my mind is attentive to the Word at all times. I am filled with the Holy Spirit and divinely transported into the higher realms of life, where I live above poverty, sickness, death, defeat, destruction, and failure. The eyes of my understanding are enlightened, therefore, I see the invisible and I am empowered to do the impossible. My spirit is aglow with the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ; the light of the knowledge of God's glory shines perpetually in my heart. Grace and peace are multiplied in my life, and my heart is refreshed in God's presence and overwhelmed with His peace today. All that concerns me are perfected by the Lord, and I am guided in the path of success, victory and increased productivity. Everywhere I go, situations that are not consistent with God's perfect will for my life are overturned and the works of the devil are frustrated in and around me. The Word of God is in my heart and in my mouth! My words are wholesome, and they’re producing life to my body, job, business, ministry, family, and all that concerns me. I am a success. I win always; I am above only, and never beneath, because I am a product of God’s infallible Word! Glory to God!

#AFFIRMATIONTRAIN 27TH JULY. I affirm that the Lord is the strength of my life! He is my refuge and my shield; in Him, I put my trust knowing that He has given me life and all that I require to live triumphantly to the glory of His Name. The Lord has set eternity in my heart and I walk in the prearranged paths which He has made ready for me before the foundations of the world. I am guided by God's Spirit to walk in wisdom and understanding, filled with the thoughts of possibilities and righteousness. I am guided and regulated by the Word, today and always. The Lord is my source and my sufficiency; He makes me lie down in green pasture; He leads me beside the still waters! His divine power has given me all things that pertain to life and godliness. I live from a position of rest, knowing that I am a joint-heir with Christ. Lack is far from me; I live above the economies and economics of this world; I live triumphantly today, and always, fulfilling God’s dream and bringing glory to His Name. I am prospering in all my endeavours, and making progress from glory to glory through the Word, and the power of the Spirit. Blessed be God. Hallelujah!
