Weekly Fast Focus: Welcome Holy Spirit!
Psalm 85:6, “Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?”
As we continue this corporate season of humbling ourselves with prayer and fasting, we cry out for the Lord’s presence in one accord saying, “Welcome, Holy Spirit!” Breathe afresh on our lives, our families, our churches, and our nation. Breathe on us, Spirit of comfort and counsel. Protect and prosper us. Be with us every day of 2022. We repent for every aspect of unfaithfulness, of neglecting to seek Your face, hear Your voice, and follow Your leading and Presence. Turn our hearts and send times of refreshing on us from on high! We give You thanks and praise in advance for answered prayers this year.
Exodus 33:15, 16, “Then he said to Him, ‘If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us?’”
Acts 3:19, "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord."
Lord God, by Your mercy and according to Your promise, give us a new, even greater outpouring of Your Spirit to touch all nations. Let the glory shine through us with a fresh spirit of evangelism for a great harvest. We pray for every church and pastor to be filled afresh with the Holy Spirit and have full provision to see the next Great Awakening in this hour. Lord, give us souls! Holy Spirit, guide each of us to hungry souls and a new level of signs and wonders to be released. Send Your outpouring, the former and latter rain (Joel 2:23). Descend on us and our children with showers of Your promised blessing. We pray for the Church to increase and advance with boldness as we watch and pray until the Lord returns. We declare harvest glory over the nations. Come Holy Spirit, we need You!
Joel 2:23, 28-29, “Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you—the former and the latter rain in the first month…And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.”
Isaiah 60:1,2, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you”;
Zechariah 10:1, “Ask the Lord for rain in the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.”
Acts 9:31, "So the church throughout the whole of Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was edified [growing in wisdom, virtue, and piety] and walking in the respect and reverential fear of the Lord and in the consolation and exhortation of the Holy Spirit, continued to increase and was multiplied";
Acts 2:47b,"And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved."
Matthew 9:37-38, “Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.’”
