MYGEN Church Fasting & Prayer – 9-27-17

Lifting hands in praise

MYGEN Church
Fasting & Prayer

Each one of us battles different issues, concerns, trials and tribulations. It’s easy to allow them to overwhelm us to the point where we are distracted. They sit on our minds, and rest in our hearts. We get consumed with our problems so much that we oftentimes forget to talk to God. ΄We literally allow the devil to use our troubles to stifle our praise and silence our prayers. He magnifies our distractions while minimizing the Power of God.

Today, from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM, we will be fasting from allowing the devil to stifle our prayers and silence our praise. We will praise and worship God 24/7. We will sing praises to Him continually throughout the day. In the midst of our storm, trial and tribulation, we will charge the atmosphere with our prayer, praise and worship allowing it to change our mindset. Your best testimony is your lifestyle. When your family, friends, and co workers know that you are struggling and you are still determined to praise, worship and pray your way through, it speaks volumes of your faith and will allow them to look at God the way that you do: As someone worthy of your praise, no matter what.

My Father Said

To DO

  • Post on your social media:
    Today I will be fasting from allowing my situations to keep me from praying, praising and worshiping 24/7.
  • Play worship music at your desk, in your car, while you run errands and work out – for the entire day.
  • Put your favorite scripture at your desk or in plain view.
  • Take intentional prayer breaks throughout the day. Remember we will be praying corporatelyevery hour on the hour.
  • Sing or hum your favorite worship song throughout the day.
  • Start the day with an attitude of praise and take time specifically to magnify God just because He is GOD.

Do Not

  • Let a moment pass without whispering a breath of prayer
  • Let a moment pass without praising and worshipping God in song.
  • Allow the devil to magnify your problems and concerns so much that it minimizes God’s power in your life.
  • Allow others to hijack your time with idle chatter, with water cooler conversations or by downloading all their problems into your day. If this happens, use this as an opportunity to share your fasting experience.
  • Ask or thank God for anything. Just Praise Him.

We will pray every hour on the hour in addition to our corporate prayer at 9 PM. All of these prayer calls happen in our Google Hangouts group. If you haven’t joined our Fasting Group on Hangouts you may do so by pressing the button below.

Verses for Meditation

  • O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. Isaiah 25:1
  • Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord. Psalm 150
  • And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. Acts 16:25
  • God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24
  • Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Psalm 103:1 
  • Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day. Psalm 71:8
  • Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. Jeremiah 29:12
    Your loving kindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. Psalm 63:3-4
About the Author

Hannah Love

While I am a born and raised Seventh-day Adventist (I was baptized at the age of 8, and then again at 21), I am not a product of Adventist Education. As a matter of fact, it is my public school education, both at DeWitt Clinton HS, and the University at Albany that has strengthened my relationship with. High School reignited my love for singing in choirs, and led me to join the Angelic Voices of Praise, the only gospel choir on campus. It was at corporate prayer before choir rehearsal one Thursday evening in Albany that my prayer life was brought under a microscope. You see, up until that point, I was praying these little Baby Prayers, the Patty Cake Prayers, the rehearsed Prayers, the One Liners. There wasn’t any conviction, and it almost appeared that I was afraid to talk to God in a very real way. That night a seasoned member saw something that I didn’t see in myself, and because she allowed the Holy Spirit to use her, took me to the back of the LC during corporate prayer and taught me how to pray. I mean Really Pray! That night not only changed my life, but changed my Prayer Life forever. My prayer life translated well as I served as a Pathfinder Leader and an Assistant AY Leader and Praise and Worship leader. It was my constant communication with God that allowed Him to use me to lead Teens and Young Adult closer to God, and many more into Praise and Worship. While I understand that our life experiences have differed, I believe that our God is the same. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He is the God that desires to have a deeper communication with us, who longs to chat with us, and craves quiet moments that we can offer as sacrifice to Him Do not for a moment think that I am perfect. In fact I am far from it. I mess up and mistakes, but my relationship with God is just as real as this letter you are reading. It is my relationship, and my prayer life, that restores me each and every time I fall. It is my prayer life with God that has allowed Him to use me for His work, and the furtherance of His Gospel! I charge each and everyone of you to explore a genuine and real relationship with God! Sit at His feet, talk to Him, worship him, Praise Him! Ask God to show Himself to you in a very “You Specific Way” Just in case you don’t know where to start, I encourage each and everyone of you who are able to join in with us on our Weekly Prayer and Fasts that meet each Wednesday. It is in these Fasts, that God reveals our character flaws to us, in hopes of not only correcting our Spiritual Cancers that seek to draw us away from God’s divine love, but pull us closer to the feet of Jesus! I pray that each and everyone of you experience God in a very real and “You Specific Way”. I Love you and God Loves you more!
