Prayer for Fasting

Father, it is the heart of White Stone church to seek Your face and strength, not only Your hand. (Psalm 105:4).  You have declared a holy fast to cry out to you Lord (Joel 1:14). Sovereign God we want to honor You as first in our lives, so we offer to You the things that would turn our focus from You Lord. Father You have said that You put your instructions deep within us, and have written them on our hearts. (Jer. 31:33) Tune our ears to hear You Holy Spirit about what we should fast from, and as it gets difficult, remind us that You are with us to give us Your strength (Psalm 86:16). As we fast Jesus, we invite You in to invade and demolish strongholds of pride, unforgiveness, bitterness, anger, perversity, self-centeredness,  or anything that is keeping us bound from all of the great things You have planned for us to honor You and bring You glory (Eph. 4:31). We ask You Holy Spirit to loose your power so that all the fruitYou have already implanted in us would begin to flourish as a spring garden. “The Lord your God will change your heart and the hearts of all your descendants, so that you will love him with all your heart and soul and so you may live!" (Deut. 30:6). God this is our heart’s desire and we know that You are able to do more than we could ask or imagine. Thank You for what You are about to do in White Stone, Your Church.
