Hello SUMite Family:
I pray that in the midst of all the crazy that can come with the Christmas holiday, you found one or two sweet and precious moments. I also pray you watched the Lord moving in the hearts of some of your family and even better, in your heart.
I believe in miracles and the Donovan Clan experienced an absolutely astonishing miracle this Christmas. My son’s estranged wife and his two year old daughter came for Christmas. It was amazing and special, precious and priceless. I have much to tell you about all this but I’m still praying into it all right now.
Which brings me to PRAYER.
It’s time for our annual community fast and prayer week. If you are new here, let me tell you that this single week of the year can change a life, a marriage, your faith walk and everything else in your life. I will be praying for many things during this week of prayer and fasting and I am expectant.
Let’s begin now start to set this week into motion.
This is how it works. Beginning Monday, January 5, 2015 through Friday evening, January 9th we will fast and pray as a community.
Every morning we will have a topic, devotion or something to contemplate and pray over posted on the blog. Usually on the first day of the week we join in prayer and fast for the full salvation of our spouse. I always like to see how the Holy Spirit will lead this out. Some years we have focused entirely on our faith walk and some years we pray for our family.
In my gut, I really want to pray for ourselves this year. I don’t mean that in a selfish way. I want to pray for all of us to experience an intense intimacy with the Father. I want the Holy Spirit to instruct us how to walk in signs and wonders. I want to ask the Lord to allow us to be vessels of healing to others. I want us to learn how to listen to God’s voice and hear Him clearly every time He speaks. I wonder do these topics sound like something you want for your life?
What you need to do this week is to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help set next week up for you so you can fast successfully. Ask the Lord to make it easier for you to fast. Talk with your family and let them know you are going to fast so they are supportive and understanding. Ask God for a breakthrough in your prayer life now so that when you begin to fast and pray, the angels jump into action at your words. Awesome…
On Wednesday, we will share the different ways you can fast. And on Friday, I’m going to tell you what happened to me when God told me to fast back in September. I hope you will be inspired and empowered like I was.
2015 is going to be a year of breakthroughs. Starting off with a community fast and prayer is powerful. Let me tell you now the devil is scared. He is going to work very hard to stop you from joining the community in this way. DON’T LET HIM STOP YOU.
There will be eternal advances for you and the Kingdom because you participate in this fast. I promise. Generations will be impacted because you humbled yourself, prayed and fasted to seek the Lord.
I love you so much my SUM family. I pray for you often and for the salvation of your spouses. I keep hearing the Lord speak to me the word; expectant. So, I’m going to live 2015 expectant of His divine interventions, deliverances, freedoms, miracles and powerful love encounters. I can’t wait to see what word He may have for you.
See you Wednesday. Hugs, Lynn
Lynn, I couldn't stop reading this book! It is the best you have written! It's a "self-help-bible-based-do-it-yourself-demon-slaying-victory-winning book" like no other I've ever read. I learned some new prayer points as well as clarification on what exactly does my situation mean. Everyone who reads this will want their bible, notebook and the Holy Spirit sitting next to them as they strategize with the tools you've given! -Barb
