the message below are excerpts from this morning’s covenant hour of prayer as delivered by Bishop David Oyedepo
Isiah 58:6-7 fasting is prescribed to empower our love for God which reflects in our love for those around us into next levels. God’s love is a giving love, John3 16. Ephesians 4:4-5 the Holy Ghost empowers our love for God into next levels, Ephesians 3:17-19. As we get into fasting, the Holy Spirit destroys the yoke of hatred. 1 John 4:21 God has ordained fasting to enlarge our capacity for love 2 Corinthians 2:9, Romans 5:5.
FUNDAMENTAL BENEFITS OF LOVE
- Access to revelation– when you are a lover, your insight is unlimited, John 15:15. The deeper our love, the deeper our insight and the more exploits we command. Many love what God does, not God in person; and when they don’t see what God they run away. Romans 8:9 No force can stop God’s lovers– when we are truly in love, we cannot be stopped. Songs of Solomon 4:6
- Outbreak of revelation- seek light on issues of concern to you. Engage in seeking revelation in our fast, Isaiah 5:13. What we need more often than not is revelation that illuminate us, Daniel 10:2-3/11-14. We fast to seek revelation. The domination of light over darkness is instant and unquestionable.
Prayer: Holy Ghost fire the love of God into to my heart.
Father, by the Holy Ghost deepen by love level for you.
Father, in this 21days of prayer & fasting, let there be an outbreak of revelation.
Father, let to be my personal day of revival.
Father, I receive grace to stay steadfast for the journey ahead.
