In this week of prayer and fasting we are believing God for a revival, a divine encounter with the Holy Ghost.
1 – We are praying for ‘Unity’, unity in the Body of Christ, unity among us as God children. If there is no unity ,the Holy Spirit won’t come.
[Before the Holy Spirit came, they were all with one accord in one place. How good it is for brethren to dwell together, for there God commanded the blessing, Ps 133:1].
2 – A ‘Supernatural Encounter’ with the Holy Ghost; that will lead to a life transformation. That we will encounter the Holy Ghost in a different way.
Acts 1:8; ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. In Acts 4 they prayed again and had another encounter with the Holy Ghost which lifted them to another level. Let’s pray for another encounter this week.
3 – We are praying for ‘Spiritual Empowerment’ to deal with the challenge we are facing in our life. Empowerment for the task. Jesus told the disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they were endowed with power from on high to enable them furfil their destiny. Pray for empowerment for the task ahead of you.
4 – We Praying for ‘Boldness’, boldness for confrontation & boldness for divine steps. Boldness that will lead us to the throne of grace to obtain mercy.
Peter was a fisherman, he didn’t have much knowledge; he had boldness after the encounter with the Holy Spirit, so he stood and spoke the Word of God with Power.
5 – That God will ‘Announce everyone of us’. Announce us for greater works. If you are looking for job, it will be announced this is the person you are looking for. If you are looking for marriage, God will announce it to that person this is your wife/or husband. Acts 2: 6 it was noise abroad…
6 – We are praying for ‘Divine Increase’. As we encounter the Holy Ghost he will give us a supernatural increase. 3000 people in one day were added to the body of Christ [Acts 2:41]. Please pray such increase for this ministry.
7 – We are praying for ‘Results’; that everything we do, every investment we make will bring result, every offering we give will yield a hundred fold. Every heart desire will yield result. Anything we are doing will bring result. [Acts 2: 38-41]
8 – We are praying for the ‘Gifts of the Holy Spirit’ [Word of Knowledge, Word of wisdom, the Gift of Healing, the Gift of Faith, Gift of prophecy… we are praying for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit to makes manifest in our lives]
Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.[Acts 2:34; Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.]
