Day 8 – 1/12/2020

Prayer and Fasting that Pleases God    
 
Scripture: Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.  
 
This is our time and season for transformation! We begin the year with 21 days of prayer and fasting to surrender to God and allow Him to take control of our lives. It is during this time that we ‘consecrate’ ourselves which means ‘to be set apart’ for God’s use.  Consecration requires a renewed mind. As the year gains momentum, we seek God’s face, deny our flesh and feed our spirit. God desires draw you closer to Him in order to speak to your heart and mind. He wants to tune your spirit in His presence, renew your mind, tune your ears to His voice and tune your eyes to His movement. He desires to prepare you to do His good, acceptable and perfect will.  
 
However, to truly be transformed by this time of self-denial, our prayer and fasting must please God. The Lord God must be pleased by our time with Him. It is critically important that we confess and repent of all sin and have a right spirit in the presence of God. For that to occur, we must mean business with God and set aside intentional time daily to worship, pray, fast and study of His Word. Be intentional! Be transformed! Hear God’s voice as you start the year.  
 
It’s Time to Pray: Father God, Help me to take this time of prayer and fasting seriously. Transform me, change me in Your presence by the power of Your Spirit. Please prepare me to do Your acceptable and perfect will this year. In Jesus name, Amen!
