CIP 21-Day Fast
“Thy Kingdom Come”
This January 2019, Canada In Prayer and the 700 Club Canada are calling on the Body of Christ in Canada to fast and pray together for unity within the Church and for God’s glory to be manifested in us so that the world will know the Father has sent us (John 17:21-23).
Join us this New Year for the “Thy Kingdom Come” 21-Day Daniel Fast from January 7th to 27th as we intercede according to Matthew 6:10: “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” We are praying and believing for the Church to be mobilized in prayer and prayer-driven evangelism, that a harvest of souls will be brought in for Almighty God’s glory!
Please join in prayer with us, not only for yourself but for the entire Canadian Body of Christ. Below you’ll find daily prayer directives to help you focus your prayers. Together, we will see the Church take their place as labourers in His vineyard!
7+7+7= 21 Days of Fasting Together with the Body of Christ across Canada
Week One: 7 Days of Worship and Repentance
“In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” (Matthew 6:9-12)
Monday, January 7th – FAST BEGINS: Romans 12:1, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” Consecrate yourself before God for this fast; submit to Him your mind, your will, your body, and your emotions. Ask God to cleanse you from all unrighteousness, and ask Him to open up your spiritual eyes and ears to hear Him more clearly.
Tuesday, January 8th: Isaiah 64:6, “But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away...But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand.” Recognize your depravity – who you are in your flesh and in comparison to the Holy God. Remember who made you and who made the Church; He is God and not us!
Wednesday, January 9th: 1 Chronicles 16:28-29, “Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples, give to the Lord glory and strength. Give to the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!” Spend dedicated time worshiping the Lord throughout this fast. Acknowledge who He is and give Him glory. Declare the different names He is called by.
Thursday, January 10th: Proverbs 16:9, “A man’s heart plans his ways. But the Lord directs his steps.” Repent for self-seeking motives; planning your own route and going after your own desires instead of pursuing Almighty God’s Kingdom and His will.
Friday, January 11th: Luke 14:11, “For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” Repent for pride, self-reliance and self-righteousness. Ask God to be your help and your “bread” – your sufficiency – during this fast and beyond.
Saturday, January 12th: Matthew 13:58, “Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” Repent of doubt and unbelief and ask Almighty God to strengthen you in your faith walk. “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17) Commit to spending time in the word during this fast.
Sunday, January 13th: Ephesians 4:31, “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Repent for unforgiveness, anger, offense, and speaking words of bitterness. Acknowledge wrongs, and ask God to help you forgive and release those who have hurt you.
Week Two: 7 Days of Warfare
“And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” (Matthew 6:13a)
Monday, January 14th: 2 Chronicles 20:15, “And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.’” Remember we do not need to fight the battle ourselves! Intercede that God will fight for you, for the Church and for our nation of Canada in this critical hour.
Tuesday, January 15th: 1 Corinthians 10:13, “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” Cry out to the Lord that He will give His Body the courage and conviction to stand against the temptation that is buffeting us, and that He will make a way of escape and help us walk in the victory.
Wednesday, January 16th: John 14:13-14, “ And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” Wield God’s weapon of THE NAME OF JESUS – Pray that you personally as well as the Body of Christ in Canada will approach the Father confidently, in Jesus’ name and according to His Word, with full assurance of faith, knowing it shall be done!
Thursday, January 17th: Hebrews 10:19-23, “Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” Wield God’s weapon of THE BLOOD OF JESUS – Stand on the promise of scripture that, because of the work that Jesus finished on the cross, we can enter the Holy of Holies, be cleansed, appropriate God’s promises and walk in victory over the enemy. Plead the blood of Jesus over yourself, your family, the Church and the nation.
Friday, January 18th: Isaiah 55:11, “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Wield God’s weapon of THE WORD OF GOD – Pray that Canadian believers will know the Word of God and recognize the power of it. Look up the prayers and promises found in scripture and pray them back to God.
Saturday, January 19th: Matthew 17:19-21, “Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, ‘Why could we not cast it out?’ So Jesus said to them, ‘Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Wield God’s weapon of FAITH – Ask Almighty God to give His Body a fresh revelation and understanding of “faith like a mustard seed”, and to help us determine to have that kind of active faith.
Sunday, January 20th: Revelation 12:11, “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” Wield God’s weapon of DYING TO SELF – Intercede that we as believers across the nation will fully surrender ourselves to Almighty God and to the direct control of the Holy Spirit, and that we will walk in complete obedience to Him. Pray, “Less of me and more of you, God. Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done in Canada as it is in heaven!”
Week Three: 7 Days of Declaring His Kingdom Come
“For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” (Matthew 6:13b)
Monday, January 21st: John 4:35-36, “Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.” Declare that the harvest is ripe in Canada and we will reap the fruit!
Tuesday, January 22nd: John 3:14-17, “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” Declare that Jesus Christ will be lifted up from coast to coast to coast and that God will release His Spirit of Adoption, bringing many souls to salvation!
Wednesday, January 23rd: Isaiah 61:1, “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.” Declare that we are anointed by the Holy Spirit and we will preach the Gospel and see healing, deliverance and salvation!
Thursday, January 24th: Mark 16:17, “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Declare that we as the Body of Christ in Canada will cast out demons, speak in new tongues and perform miracles, for His glory!
Friday, January 25th: 2 Corinthians 2:14, “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.” Declare that we are triumphant over the powers of darkness and that the fragrance of the knowledge of Christ is now being released in our nation through the Church!
Saturday, January 26th: John 14:12-13, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” Declare that the Canadian Church will do even greater things than Jesus did as we believe and ask in His name. Declare that the Father will be glorified as the Son is revealed!
Sunday, January 27th – FAST ENDS: Acts 2:42-47, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” Declare that the Kingdom of God will be built in Canada – the Word will be preached, the Body will walk in unity, the Church will pray without ceasing, signs and wonders will be performed, needs will be met, the Lord will be praised, and souls will be saved!!
