2017 Prayer & Fasting Schedule & Guidelines

The 2017 WOOMC Consecration and Fasting Month

In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. (3) I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled (Daniel 10:2-3, Amplified).

We will begin our annual congregational 21-day Daniel Fast Tuesday, January 17, 2017 - Monday, February 6, 2017. Throughout Scripture God always requires the first of everything in our lives, including our talents, finances and time. Therefore the first month of the year belongs to Him.

Start Date: Tuesday, January 17, 2017
End Date: Monday, February 6, 2017

Note: Those with health conditions such as diabetes who need to eat should eat something or stay on the fruits and vegetables schedule. Please be led by the Spirit for what works best for you if you have a medical condition.

CHURCH SCHEDULE CONSECRATION
Every member should fulfill one hour, one day of prayer during each of the three (3) weeks of fasting by coming to the church. Many people do not have adequate time to pray and consecrate themselves during the consecration month because of the many distractions in our homes. The one hour at church should be focused on spiritual warfare for the church. Everyone should give the Lord at least one hour or more of prayer time for your own personal family needs at home on a daily basis, except the days you come to the church. Please use the enclosed guide of prayers.

YOUR PERSONAL SPIRITUAL NEED FOR 2017

We ask you to pray for the following matters each day during the fast:

I. Pray to God for His glory to descend upon WOOMC and upon you individually (2 Chronicles 5:13-14;
2 Chronicles 7:1).
II. Pray for God to baptize you with His Spirit and His fire. Ask that His Spirit and fire descend upon you (Luke 3:16; Malachi 3:2).
III. Cry out to God for more hunger and thirst for Him (Matthew 5:6).
IV. Pray to God for souls to come into His kingdom and that He would use you to help reap the harvest
(Isaiah 43:5-6; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19).
V. Pray for God to challenge us individually and corporately to sacrifice for Him and His Church in the following areas in 2016:

  • A. Holiness (Romans 12:1; Psalm 84:11)
  • B. Time, Serving, Being Equipped or Being Used for Ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12)
  • C. Prayer and Fasting (2 Chronicles 26:5; Jeremiah 29:13)
  • D. Giving (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
  • E. Praise and Worship (Hebrews 13:15; Psalm 8:2)
  • F. Or any other area where you need to make sacrifices unto the Lord. Ask God to show and expose the areas in your life where you need to yield to Him (2 Samuel 24:24-25).

VI. Take this time to sit quietly before the Lord to hear His voice (Psalm 34:10; 2 Chronicles 26:5; Jeremiah 29:13).
