May 2021 Fasting & Prayers — Day 3

Scriptures For Meditation — Is 44:1-8; 1Pet 2:9; Rom 8:11; John 7:39


Isa 44:6 This is what the LORD says—Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies: “I am the First and the Last; there is no other God.

Isa 44:7 Who is like me? Let him step forward and prove to you his power. Let him do as I have done since ancient times when I established a people and explained its future.

We will be ending this month’s fasting and prayers today, by expanding on one of the Scriptures that we meditated on yesterday (Isa 44:1-8)

As we look closely at this scripture, we will notice a few things:

A Chosen People

First, Isaiah begins his introduction to the promise of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit by identifying the people to whom the promise is being made — God’s Chosen People.

Isa 44:1 “But now, listen to me, Jacob my servant, Israel my chosen one.

Isa 44:2 The LORD who made you and helps you says: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, O dear Israel, my chosen one.

As the bible tells us in 1Peter 2:9, we Believers by virtue of Christ’s redemptive work, have also become God’s own special people.

Do Not Be Afraid

As Isaiah said to the people in his time, so is the message to someone reading this at this time also — Do not be afraid!

Though there may be so many things troubling your mind at this time, the overflow of the Spirit of God into your life carries with it a promise of hope and succour to bring you to a different place where your victory is assured and the purpose of God for your life is established.

Isa 44:8 Do not tremble; do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim my purposes for you long ago? You are my witnesses—is there any other God? No! There is no other Rock—not one!”

You Are God’s Witness

Again, just as Christ stated in Acts 1:4 and Acts 1:8, telling us that the reason for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit is to empower us to be His witnesses, God also declares that these His chosen people on whom the Spirit are being invested are His witnesses — called to show forth His glory.

Refresh, Revive Restore

Isa 44:3 For I will pour out water to quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields. And I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children.

The prophecy also brings a promise of the blessings of refreshing, revival and restoration with the overflow of the Spirit of God.

And A Promise of Prosperity

Isa 44:4 They will thrive like watered grass, like willows on a riverbank.

Isa 44:5 Some will proudly claim, ‘I belong to the LORD.’ Others will say, ‘I am a descendant of Jacob.’ Some will write the LORD’s name on their hands and will take the name of Israel as their own.”

Prosperity is not just talking about money or material provisions — it is basically anything and everything that you need to fulfil God’s purpose for your life; everything that is required for your life to bear witness to the truth of the Good News that you proclaim, that will make people desire to serve the God that you serve and draw them into God’s kingdom!

The thriving that this prophecy promises, includes:

• Your health,

• Advancement in your career, prosperity in your business or ministry

• Life-Giving Relationships,

• Peaceful family,

• Gifts of the Holy Spirit for ministry,

• Sound state of mind,

• Favour on the job, and in your sphere of influence or area of calling.

• Every resource, tool, provision or infrastructure needed to fulfil your purpose.

• A fruitful life that bears witness to the life, teachings, death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Prayer Focus

Whatever is missing in your life for it to manifest the evidence of the promise of prosperity that comes with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in your life (all the things that are mentioned above) should be established.

May 2021 Fasting & Prayers — Day 2

May 2021 Fasting & Prayers — Day 2

Scriptures For Meditation — Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17; Is 44:3-4; Phil 4:13


“I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose–I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]”

Php 4:13 Amplified

As we continue to mark Pentecost this week, we have another opportunity to:

Be reminded of, and to celebrate the essence of who we are as Christians, and also

• the fulfilment of the promise that God made concerning the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Down Payment – (Acts 1:4;8)

This promise was spoken first in the OT through Prophets Joel and Isaiah in Joel 2:28 and Isa 44:3-4; and then reiterated by Peter on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2:17.


Yesterday, we meditated on the promise that God gave to us in sending the Holy Spirit to empower us to fulfill His assignment for our lives.

We also saw that this empowerment that would be invested upon us through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit is expressed and is manifest in different miraculous acts in the life of the believer.

The question however is, if there was already an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, should we still expect another outpouring in our day and age?

Well, what we can definitely pray for and expect, is a Refuelling or an overflow. Because,

Whenever there’s an OVERFLOW of the Spirit, the gifts and miracles always manifest.

We struggle through life trying to “work things out” in our own power and wisdom; we get battered and discouraged by the unending challenges that life throws at us, and we ultimately settle for a defeated life that is devoid of the power of the Holy Spirit.

Many believers have unwittingly gotten to a place in our walk with God where we have run dry of the presence of the Holy Spirit, as we have relegated Him to the back of the queue, failing to give Him any room to really occupy and direct our lives as He should!

But dear friend, I am persuaded and believe God for better things concerning you — The promise of the Father is still available for you to claim even now; the overflow of the Holy Spirit in your life will produce the miracle that you have been crying out to God for, if you would receive it and allow Him to fill your life and overflow from you.

Prayer Focus

Cry out to God for an OVERFLOW of His Spirit.

Pray For The Activation, Stirring Up and an OVERFLOW of His Spirit on your life, in your ministry, over your household.

Pray for an overflow of God’s presence and power into every area of your life and on the church.

Pray for the activation and release of the gifts of the Holy Spirit that you need to fulfil God’s assignment for your life.

May 2021 Fasting & Prayers — Day 1

May 2021 Fasting & Prayers — Day 1

Scriptures For Meditation — Acts 1:3-8; John 1:12; Ephesians 3:20;

Can Do, Will Do

We celebrated The Feast of Pentecost last Sunday. The theme of our fasting and prayers this month, is going to focus on the realities of what Pentecost should mean for us as New Testament believers.

In Acts 1:4, Jesus enjoined His disciples to wait on the promise of The Father to send the Holy Spirit to them; and in verse 8, He tells them the reason why:

They would receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on them!

This power they were to receive, was going to be a prerequisite or a necessary pre-condition for what they were to do afterwards.

What Was This Power?


For us to get the full import of this promise, it will be necessary to have an understanding of what that word “power” really means.

In the context of use, it is translated from the Greek word — Dunamis.

And as Thayer’s Greek Bible Definition, highlights, it means:

Strength Power, Ability, Inherent power;

Power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature.

So when Jesus said they would receive power, He was saying that they were going to have a change in their nature when the Holy Spirit comes upon them, that would invest them with an inherent power to do things!

This power also refers to the ability which that person or thing exerts and puts forth and manifests in:

• The power for performing miracles

• Moral power and excellence of soul

• The power and influence which belong to riches and wealth (Prosperity)

• The power and resources arising from numbers (Growth and Multiplication)

• The power consisting in or resting upon armies, forces, hosts (Dominion and Authority)

The word dunamis itself, is taken from the Greek word — Dunamai

And Dunamai means:

1. To be able to do something — to have power whether by virtue of one’s own ability and resources, or of a state of mind, or through favourable circumstances, or by permission of law or custom

2. Can do; capacity; to be capable, strong and powerful

3. To be possible

Prayer Focus

Reading all of this, we can see that God has deposited an immense and extremely potent divine ability in us, given to enable us accomplish His purposes for our lives, through the operation and workings of His Holy Spirit in us.

That’s what Pentecost is about!

Let’s revisit the definitions of both “Dunamis” and “Dunamai” highlighted above; meditate on the different components of the words, then pray and claim the reality of those things into your life and situation in Jesus’s Name.
