Update: After Fasting and Prayer, What Next?

Prophetic Declaration for the Year

This is My Year of Total Restoration and All Round Victory.”

“For God is at work in my life; He will give me victory on every side, and empower me to experience all-round restoration this year, in Jesus name.”


Once again, we thank God for His grace during the just concluded twenty-one day fast. What a great way to kickstart the New Year.

Yes, our fasting did not change God, but it humbled us. It brought us together all-around the world and we prayed in agreement. We were able to pray effectively. And we were refreshed and empowered.

Like I said, I completely believe that God is answering our prayers.

So have faith.

So many, many positive things are going to happen to you, your family, your relationship, your ministry, and your career this year. There shall be total restoration and all-around victory, in Jesus Christ name.


Now that we are done with the 21-day fast, what next?

First, if you did not participate in the fast, but would like to do it, that’s great. Simply click on Fasting Day 21. Then from there access the other days and just follow the instructions.

Secondly, understand that the devil likes to create distractions.

Did you notice that after Jesus fasted 40 days and 40 nights, it was the devil that greeted him first? And then tempted him.

But He overcame.

Don’t be worried if some of you notice that after a very powerful spiritual exercise, such as the 21-day fast that we have just done, there may be some distractions that come your way – or even temptations – from areas you never expect. You may begin to wonder and ask:

“How come? But I just fasted and prayed? What’s happening?”


Don’t let the devil distract you from your focus – Jesus Christ.

Satan’s ultimate game plan is to distract. He may try to magnify your situation and it looks like things just got worse, or create some situations that are not in line with your prayers. His plan is to get you to begin to doubt that God is with you. He wants you to think that your case is very difficult. But’s that’s a lie.

“The problem that God cannot solve does not exist”.

I repeat…

“God is with you. Yes, YOU. He will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Finally, while the 21 days prayer and fasting may have come and gone, our fellowship with God through prayer, study, thanksgiving, and worship must get stronger. Remember, men ought always to pray, and not faint.

What’s Coming Next?

By the leading of the Holy Spirit, February has been declared the month of praise. Yes. We shall be praising God like never before. It will be called 28 Days of Praise Challenge.

I will write another post with detailed instructions on how to participate and why we must participate and praise God like never before this year.

Please look out for that post on the 1st or 2nd day of February.

I may not make daily posts and send daily emails like I did in the just concluded January 21 Days Fasting period. But I will endeavor to send reminders or make posts with updates twice a week or so.

As we praise God from the depths of our hearts, His greatness is revealed in ways that astound us.

God will make your life beautiful this year, in Jesus name.

    I must share with you…I have been taking part in a debt reduction program cor the last couple of years. During this time one of the credit card companies filed a judgement against me. This type of thing can affect buying and selling. I was so distraught because I was trying so hard to follow the program. During the period of 21 days of fasting I received word that the company had agreed to take a lesser amount than was owed them and in 8 months that particular debt will be gone and I will be free from the judgement. I still have about 50 thousand dollars to pay off from emergency surgery, but this small victory is definitely anawered prayer.
