Fasting Day 20: God is Answering Your Prayers – So Thank Him & Declare Your Victory.

Prophetic Declaration for the Year:

“I have victory over everything that strove with me in the past, for God has given me room to flourish in the land.

“Therefore this is My Year of REHOBOTH.


This is the [remarkable degree of] confidence which we [as believers are entitled to] have before Him: that [a]if we ask anything according to His will, [that is, consistent with His plan and purpose] He hears us.

And if we know [for a fact, as indeed we do] that He hears and listens to us in whatever we ask, we [also] know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted to us] the requests which we have asked from Him.

– 1 John 5:14-15(AMP)


Many times we wonder if the prayers we have said, declared and made will be answered. Well, I got good news for you.

Yes. Your prayers, made according to God’s Words, are being answered.

Sometimes we wrongly adjudge our prayers by how we feel. We think that if we feel great and shaky about the prayers we have made, then they would be answered. But if we feel dried and less charismatic, then our prayers did not reach heaven.

But thank God. Our prayers are not answered based on our feelings. The Scripture above says once we have prayed according to God’s will, that is according to the WORD OF GOD, that we have answers to our prayers.

That means all the prayers and declarations we have taken from the scriptures and declared are getting answered.

So what should we do next?

We should have that consciousness and be praiseful to God for answering our prayers.

Believers should stop judging their prayers by how they feel. Feelings have nothing to do with how God answers prayers. All prayers made according to God’s WORDS are answered.


In the last couple of days, you have made several prayers, confessions, declarations and supplications. God says that He will do exactly as You have spoken in His ears. Your prayers will be answered. This year will be a year of manifestation for you. It will be a year of total victory and flourishing in the land.

In today and tomorrow’s prayer retreat, we are going to thank God for all the prayers we have made so far and declare our faith in receiving answers to our prayers. We are going to make various degrees of prophetic declarations on the various areas we have prayed through all this while.

We are going to speak into the spirit realm and seal our  prayers with the Blood of Jesus Christ, and then personally minister to ourselves and anoint ourselves, our environments and our family with oil, claiming divine breakthrough…in Jesus name.

The following prayers and declarations can be made at any time. That means you can memorize any or all of them and declare them all through the day. But it is also highly recommended that you make out time and make these prayers.


Mark 11:24 – Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

1 John 5:14-15 – And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us.

John 15:7 – If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Matthew 7:7 – Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Jeremiah 33:3 – Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

1 John 3:22 – And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

Jeremiah 29:12 – Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Prayer 1: Look Back and Thank God.

Heavenly Father,

I have called on THEE in these past days. I have offered many prayers and declarations and supplications. I am here today to declare that I believe according to THY Word, that You have answered my prayers.

Father, I asked Thee for the forgiveness of my sins and the healing of my land, and according to THY Word, I believe and confess that my sins have been forgiven and my lands have been healed.

O Lord, I prayed that strongholds causing barriers between me and THY blessings be removed, and I thank THEE today because every stronghold in my life has been rolled away.

I and my family are no longer under any kind of generational curse from this day forward, because the curses have now been neutralized by the Blood of Jesus Christ, in Jesus name.

Monitoring demons over my life have been defeated, bound, and are now resting in the abyss until Jesus comes. I am now monitored and followed about by the angels of God, who are working to bring to pass God’s plans for my life.

From today, I have the spirit of boldness, of LOVE, power and of sound mind. Fear is defeated in my life forever and ever. I will take bold steps ordained by God to bring me to my place of testimony from now onwards, in Jesus name.

The powers of witchcraft over my life, family, business, career, destiny and environment have been destroyed, and they will remain destroyed forever and ever.

From this day forward, I am taking back 100-fold whatever has been damaged in my life and destiny due to witchcraft, in Jesus name

Father LORD, thank You for making me seated in the heavenly places with Christ Jesus, far above principalities and powers and above the works of darkness, in Jesus name.

Today LORD, I remind You that I have prayed and reversed all manner of curses against my life, family and destiny, and I want tell You that I believe that no curse is working against me anymore, for whatever You do is permanent, in Jesus name.

I have victory over territorial demons, and through Jesus, their operations against my life, my family and the Church of Jesus Christ have been defeated.

LORD, in this neighborhood, there will be revival, and Your people shall have their prayers answered every day, to Your glory, in Jesus name

I am free from any form of negative soul tie and oppressions coming from evil men posing as men and women of God, in Jesus name.

I declare that afflictions and infirmity are defeated in my life and family, and my loved ones whom I have prayed for. The healing power of God is at work in my life and that of my loved ones from this day forward, in Jesus name.

LORD, I declare that my marriage and home is blessed. I declare that we are enjoying financial abundance and divine favor every day, in Jesus name.

I am God’s sheep. I hear His voice and I follow Him. So I have direction and I make the right decisions from today onwards, in Jesus name.

Holy Spirit, I thank You for empowering me to produce all Your fruits in my life, and I thank You for Your gifts working through my life to bless my generation, in Jesus name.

Other Actions

  1. Remember all that we have prayed about and give God thanks for answering our prayers
  2.  Anoint yourself, your house/home, environment and if possible, other members of your family and declare everything dedicated to the LORD.

Scriptures for Reflection and for Anointing

Exodus 40:9 – And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that [is] therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

1 Samuel 10:1 – Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured [it] upon his head, and kissed him, and said, “Is it not because the LORD hath anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance?”

Acts 10:38 – How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

Luke 4:18 – The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.

Prayer 2: Anoint and Dedicate All to the LORD.

Heavenly Father, I anoint myself today and my house and this environment and completely surrender and dedicate all to THEE.

I declare that my life, my family and this place shall be holy unto THEE.

Just as Jesus was anointed with Holy Ghost and with power and He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, I also pray that my life, my family and this house and environment shall be a source from which good news, healing, encouragement, light and favor shall flow through to others, in Jesus name.


Amen. Amen. Amen.
