Awaken 21

HC Fast - Day 3 - Saturday

Day 3: Strength

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:23).

Prayer for the Day:

Lord I’m Yours. Oh, I need thee every hour. I really need thee. I offer you my weakness “for your strength is made perfect in my weakness…” (II Corinthians 12:9). Empower me to stay strong through the physical challenge of the fast and to grow stronger in my faith. All I need is You. You alone are my Strength, O God. Thank You, Lord Jesus that You are touched with the feeling of my infirmities. You see the struggles in my life, and You know how they have shaken me. They’ve not shaken You, Lord. Free me from every fear, every limitation, from drawing back, from intimidation. You are my Peace, my Strength.

 Spend some time thinking or journaling about the Bible reading and prayer for the day.

HC Fast - Day 2 - Friday

Day 2: Guidance

“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left” (Isaiah 30:21). “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and he delights in his way” (Psalm 37:23).

Prayer for the Day:

Father, You have a perfect plan for my life. I ask You to give me knowledge of the path that You want me to walk that I will not miss Your will. Thank You. God, you know where I am. You planned my life before I ever showed up; I ask for Your perfect will now. Show me your way and direct my life, giving me guidance beyond my mind into your perfect will. I ask you for it, I receive it and I believe it. I worship You, Father. I thank You that You are going to guide me, lead me, walk beside me. I will be led by Your peace. I will delight in Your way, O God.

HC Fast - Day 1 - Thursday

Day 1: Consecration

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. . . . Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up” (James 4:8,10).

Prayer for the Day:

Lord, sanctify me. I need You. Nothing else will satisfy me. Fill me with the Holy Spirit today. I want to be baptized in the Spirit. I want to walk in the Spirit. I want to talk in the Spirit. I want to live in the Spirit. I’m tired of living where everybody else is. I don’t want to be like everybody else. I’m coming up higher after You. I’m going to seek You with all of my heart.

Awaken 21 - Day 21

Imagine that you were a passenger on a sinking ship. The deck is tilting, water is pouring in, and people are treading water for their lives all around you. After many hours it looks like all is lost and all those who are desperately trying to survive are losing hope when in the distance you see a rescue ship approaching. The rescue ship heard your distress call and came just in time to save your life. After you are pulled to safety on the rescue ship would you grab a deck chair and some suntan lotion or would you grab a lifeline and throw it to those who are still drowning? When God the Father heard of our distress he sent his Son to rescue humanity from certain destruction. You, being saved, must have the same urgency as Christ in rescuing those around you. Now that you have been awakened to the grace and mercy of Christ it must become your life work to awaken others. You have a small moment in time- make it count in eternity.

Bible Reading:

  1. Ephesians 5:14-20

Awaken 21 - Day 20

Our culture is fame obsessed. From selfies to social media, reality TV to Hollywood stars we have elevated normal people to god-like positions giving them our unending attention and adoration. Fame has become the holy grail of a generation with “becoming famous” now ranking as the #1 goal of pre-teens in the United States. The reality is Jesus Christ alone deserves all honor, glory, and fame. Foolish men have tried to stop the progress of Christ’s fame, with as much success as trying to command the sea or halt a hurricane. Eventually every man or woman, no matter how well known, will fade from the spotlight, but the fame of Jesus Christ will outlast eternity. When words fail mankind, His Word will endure. Governments will be swept away and kingdoms will fall, but before Christ “every knee shall bow and tongue will confess that He is Lord.” It should be the foremost goal of every believer to make Jesus famous.
