Well, the 21 days of fasting & prayer have come to an end. Now, our prayer is that the strongholds of the devil will be broken and that God will cause the Winds of the Holy Spirit to blow in favor of His will to be accomplished in our lives. Isaiah 27:1 (KJV) says, “In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.” As Jesus calmed the storm and people were amazed that the seas and the winds obeyed Him, so we believe He still controls the winds. If the Lord has caused a change of wind to blow in your life, through salvation, healing, or some other display of God’s power in your life, please let us know at www.delphifirst.org/testify. We would love to hear your testimonies.
We are halfway through the 21 days of prayer and fasting. There certainly could not be a more needful and serious time in our country. A “freefall” straying from biblical principles and living is leading us towards a great fall! In times of moral lows, the only answer is to seek God for a wide-spread awakening. The Word of God teaches us that in times like these we must humble ourselves before God with repentance, fasting and prayer. Let me encourage you towards this important eternal work. Complacency will tell us that we need that T-Bone or Twinkie more than fasting and prayer. When the Holy Spirit is moving, He always sets His people to prayer—even fasting and prayer. Hear the Spirit, and let’s continue to intercede for ourselves, our Church, our community, and this lost Nation!
