My dear friend, welcome on board. This fast is about abstaining from doing the thing (s) God has put on your heart for 40 days. Some people are not going to watch TV, some people are shutting down their What’s App, some people are not eating a particular food item as we pray every single day seeking God’s face.
Organize time to pray in the morning and in the evening and make each prayer session at least 45 mins long. It is a time of sacrifice, let’s aim to spend much more time with God than we usually do. Let the Holy Spirit push you, it will not be in vain. If you can spend 1 hour to pray and worship in the morning, 1 hour in the evening or at night that will be awesome.
Time to appropriate God’s Word. 2018 is a Year of Victories!
Yes, sin left a crimson stain and Jesus washed you white as snow. He raised your life up from the death. Satan is dead and done. Jesus bought you. This territory called your life belongs to Jesus. God’s promises for you still stand, they never went anywhere, you just need to find your voice again and roar! God never changed his mind about your blessings, he just needs you to come back in position.
The devil and his army may have declared that there is no way you are going to pass through these walls they have built, know that God laughs because he has already given you a new future where I overcome. You overcome and it is time to receive that new future God re-wrote in your life.
You got hurt, you got disappointed, you got harmed, you got abused, you got rejected, you got left, you got cursed. And yes those things affected you deeply, God knows it. You want to know what I hear? I hear Jesus say: “old things have passed away” (2 Corinthians 5:17) and it is time to inherit the new blessings and leave the past (experiences) behind. Do you agree with Jesus? If you do then my friend today is the day you find your voice again to roar for victory. The devil is in trouble. The devil is afraid. The devil is in hiding. Today you agree with Jesus and declare these biblical truths over your life.
I agree with you Lord Jesus.

whose hope is in the Lord their God” Psalm 146:5
I am deeply blessed because my help comes from the Lord. I am deeply blessed.
2. “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:19
Lord I declare you have become my one and only supplier today, you supply in abundance in every area of my life in the name of Jesus. I completely trust you Lord.
3. “Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.

Lord I declare today that you are my God indeed, apply your word in my life, please. I receive your strength and your help right now in the name of Jesus, turn my problem into victory, reshape my beliefs. I hold your right hand and I receive your promise that you will not let go.
4. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13
Jesus you are my source of strength. Everywhere they have said “no way”, you make a way. Where they said: “No way he/she will succeed”, I declare my success. I declare that I will do all things the devil and his army said I wouldn’t be able to do through Christ my Lord who will be my strength and protector every day.
5. “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing” Psalm 23:1
I declare that I have everything I need in your hands Lord God. I declare that you will never stop providing for me in abundance. Abundance is my portion in you Lord, alleluia!
6. “my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior— from violent people you save me. I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and have been saved from my enemies” 2 Samuel 22:3-4
I declare that you will not fail at saving me from my enemies Lord! I rely on you alone, I believe with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind that you are enough and that you do not fail.
7. “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” 2 Corinthians 9:8
Lord I declare that you are able. You hold everything, all things are in your hand, you are able. Lord I claim your promise: bless me abundantly now!
8. “For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory” Psalm 149:4
I humble myself before you Lord. I declare that my own strength will not help me. My help comes from you Lord. You are everything and above all things. I declare that the victory of my God will be my crown and I will wear this crown of victory everywhere I go.
9. “Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.
He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness,
and broke away their chains” Psalm 107:13-14
I cry out to you Lord, save me from my distress. Bring me out of every darkness. Break away my chains. Let the word of my testimony be: The Lord broke away my chains and gave me a permanent victory in the name of Jesus!
10. “because as He is, so are we in this world” 1 John 4:17
As Jesus is so am I in this world, blessed, perfect in every way!
Continue declaring these truths in your life as we fast.
