Jesus Is Lord—A Season of Exaltation, Humbling, & Fasting

Friday, January 8, 2016—We declare Jesus is Lord. Let us begin this year with praise, thanksgiving, and worship to the King of Glory; the Lord strong and mighty—His name is Jesus.

Let us declare His Lordship over us, our children, our church, our city, and our nation.

Let us make room for His Glory to rise over us by setting aside the first part of this year in a season of humbling, repentance, and fasting. We turn away from pride and rebellion. May the Lord hear from heaven, heed our prayer, forgive our sin, and begin to heal our land according to 2 Chronicles 7:14.

May the Lord cover us from mounting dangers at home and abroad. The rise of ISIS, the turmoil in the Middle-East, and the increase of jihadist terrorism worldwide makes clear we need God’s protection for this nation and all peace-loving nations.

We speak the strong name of the Lord, Captain of Armies, and call on Him to shelter us under His protective wings. May He prosper us as we journey through 2016. “May God arise, may His enemies be scattered” (Ps. 68:1).

2 Chronicles 7:14  “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Ezra 8:21-23  “There, by the Ahava Canal, I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions. I was ashamed to ask the king for soldiers and horsemen to protect us from enemies on the road, because we had told the king, 'The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him, but his great anger is against all who forsake him.' So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer.”


Ps. 68:1; Ps. 91:9-11; Ps. 24:7-10; Mark 9:29; Mark 17:21(KJV); Phil. 4:19; 2 Chron. 20: 9, 12
