Exodus 35:20-22 NKJV  
20 And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses. 21 Then everyone came whose heart was stirred, and everyone whose spirit was willing, and they brought the LORD's offering for the work of the tabernacle of meeting, for all its service, and for the holy garments. 22 They came, both men and women, as many as had a willing heart, and brought earrings and nose rings, rings and necklaces, all jewelry of gold, that is, every man who made an offering of gold to the Lord.
As a faith community, we must work together to build a tabernacle that will stand for generations. This scripture shows us the commitment of the people to each do their part in establishing the tabernacle of meeting. In order to build a place where God's work and ministry could be performed, they gave of their own personal wealth, precious possessions, and property. Will you join Faith Christian Fellowship World Outreach, with united hearts and your finances to make sure that the needs of the ministry are met in 2024? The Work of Ministry is an essential aspect of building His Kingdom and we are all in this together.
When you pray today, focus on these things:
  • Pray for the renewing of your mind as it relates to the priorities of life. 
  • Pray for our Easter Service March 31st – For Salvations, For Prodigals to return, new souls and new members. 
  • Pray that your family and loved ones will maximize their potential and seize the significant opportunities of Open Doors in 2024. 
Genesis 11:6 NKJV
6 And the Lord said, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. 
There is power in UNITY. There is even more power in Godly unified commitment. In The Year of OPEN DOORS, join us as we DEVELOP A HUNGER to discover our purpose and identify the gifts and callings on our lives. Together, we will ask God for wisdom and strength to seize every opportunity to be at our best for the kingdom. You are literally one moment, one step, away from your greatness. This year, pray and develop your spiritual life. Surround yourself with the right people. Make it your primary goal to place yourself in an environment with other people who are pursuing God's direction.
Today's scripture gives us an example of what can happen when "the people are one." We want to fill our sanctuary with people who are on one accord, committed to pursuing Godly success, investing in ourselves, and seizing every God-given opportunity.

When you pray today, focus on these things:
  • Pray for the renewing of your mind as it relates to the priorities of life.
  • Pray that your family and loved ones will maximize their potential and seize the significant opportunities of 2024.

John 9:4 NKJV 
4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.
When you read the scripture for today, identify the urgency in the text. We only have the now. The time to do what God has purposed for you to do, is now. We have a limited amount of time to maximize our lives. During this time of fasting, it is important to seek an answer to this all-important question. "God, what would you have me to do?" You need to know the work He has for you to do so that you can begin. Work while it is day. The Year of Opened Door Opportunities is a new day. It is a new chance to work your faith, to work your gifts and talents, to work your business, to work your health and well-being. By the end of the fast, believe that God will remove the spirits of procrastination and delay.

As you pray today, focus on these things:
  • Pray for a renewed sense of commitment about the future. 
  • Pray for the ability to overcome procrastination and fear. 
  • Pray for the growth of FCF World Outreach and the addition of new souls to the kingdom. 
  • Pray for the members of the church with businesses and their employees. 
  • Pray for the dreams of your family and loved ones. 
ll John 1:2 NKJV
2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
I Corinthians 6:12 NKJV 
12 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
 You need your body. Your fleshly body was created to carry your soul and spirit through life. In Third John, the scripture captures the apostle's prayer that we prosper in all things and be in health. We have a responsibility to do our best to maximize our health so that we have the significant opportunity to live longer, giving us more time to accomplish the purposes God has for us. This time of prayer and fasting will allow us to cleanse our bodies and prepare for a year of better health, better diets, and better self-care.
Equally as important as our physical health is the health of our spiritual consciousness.
As we move through our daily lives, we are bombarded with images, sounds, and ideas that are often contrary to our beliefs. Corinthians teaches us that even though there are many things we are permitted to take part in, we should have discernment about what is helpful to our spirit man and what is not. During this time, we are fasting from particular foods, but also from particular media and content. The healthier we are in mind, body, and soul, the greater the opportunity we have to be prosperous on the Earth and in our endeavors.
As you pray today, focus on these things:
  • Pray for healing from sickness and disease in your family and friends. 
  • Pray for the wisdom to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle. 
  • Pray for the cleansing of your mind and spirit. 
  • Pray for the health of your finances so that you are healthy in all aspects of your life. 
Proverbs 22:6 NKJV 
6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Ephesians 6:4 NKJV 
4 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
Today, take time to relax and reflect on the fast so far. Take note of what you have learned about yourself and what God has shared or revealed to you during this time.  
There is a significant opportunity to have devotion with your family and friends. If you have children, now is the time to explain your faith to them. Teach them who Jesus is and what He taught and believed.  
Spend time walking them through the Word. Answer their questions and seek out resources that may help them understand. If you don't have children, you can do the same thing but with your friends or other loved ones.
As you pray and have devotion with your family, focus on these things:
  • Pray for family. 
  • Pray for the next generation 
  • Pray that the next generation will aspire to do the work of ministry 
  • Pray for the salvation of your children and family.  
  • Pray for the wisdom to raise your children and minister to your loved ones. 
  • Pray for the financial security of your family 
Luke 10:19 NIV 
19 | have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
Today is a day to be mindful that there are spiritual forces operating in the Earth's realm, and their assignment is to kill and destroy any opportunities God has prepared for you. As we fast, pray, and seek God for His divine will for this New Year, the enemy will also take note and seek to derail you. Be mindful that there are evil spirits operating in our world. Satan uses witchcraft, people, and even words that have the power to block or destroy different areas in your life.  
Today, we pray to ignite the inner strength in us to resist the fiery darts of the enemy and empower ourselves to tread over serpents and scorpions and that nothing can hurt us.

  • Focus on these things in prayer today: 
  • Pray for the ability to engage in spiritual warfare. 
  • Pray that your mind is covered from evil thoughts. 
  • Pray that the lives of your family & loved ones are covered under the blood of Jesus. 
  • Pray that all that belongs to you, all properties are protected from evil. 
  • Pray for people who are attacked by powers of darkness are released. 
  • Pray that as we bind evil in the Name of Jesus from operating in our lives, God will also open doors of blessings and opportunities for us. 
I Corinthian 2:9 NKJV 
9 But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."

Success is on the horizon. Great things are on the horizon. Many different things have worked together to bring you to where you are in the present. God creates a bridge called opportunity that, if you are bold and willing to step out on faith, will carry you from where you are into a future that will drastically change your life.  
This year, 2024, God will provide OPEN DOOR opportunities that will change your life in the spur of the moment. Today, spend time anticipating the breakthroughs, transformations, and opportunities. Prepare yourself, friends, and family for what God has for us throughout the year. Prepare your goals for the year. Write down your dreams and aspirations. Journal the insights you received during the fast.

As you pray today, focus on these things:
  • Pray for your future. 
  • Pray for discernment for God moments and opportunities. 
  • Pray for favor, grace, and mercy. 
  • Thank God that He sees you, knows you, cares for you, and has a plan for you.    
Proverbs 24:16 NLT 
16 For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again,    but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.
You have been empowered over the last week through reading the word of God, praying more frequently, sacrificing your desires, refraining from distractions, and now you are prepared for your NEXT. You are ready for your next big instructions from the Holy Spirit. You have done your part to prepare the ground for the seeds God will plant in your life this year. The journey is yet before us.
Today, we establish a mindset that says no matter what I may encounter, I am on my way to the next OPEN DOORS He has prepared for me. I am unstoppable. Be encouraged not to return to your previous normal after the fast. Make up your mind that this year you will make it to every service in person or online service.

1.  This year, you will remain committed to the faith and    
      pursue the path that leads to God
2.  Remind yourself of what you meditated on this week.
3.  Sow into the ministry and into your own life.

There will be things that will try to trip you.  Just remember, the lyrics of the song, “we fall down, but we GET UP!”   You can and will GET UP again because you are UNSTOPPABLE!

Mark 11:23-24
Jesus answered and said to them, 'Have FAITH IN GOD. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart but BELIEVES that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, BELIEVE that you receive them, and you will have them.'"
Jesus you commanded us to have FAITH IN GOD. We are to BELIEVE that if God said it, He has the power to do it. As the Faith Christian Fellowship World Outreach church family continues to spread HOPE to those in need of HOPE, we must raise our level of FAITH and BELIEVE He can do it!

Lord, thank you for removing any doubts or the fears that keep me from trusting your promises for my life and my church. Please build up my faith and trust in you. Father, I declare that I have the faith to believe that You will do what you said You will do.

Thank You Lord that You are working in me, enlarging my heart, placing your VISION in my heart. so, I will continue to do your work in my church, my community, and the body of Christ.   In Jesus Name,  Amen

Psalm 22:30 (TLB)
"Our children too shall serve HIM, for they shall hear from us about the wonders of the Lord"

2 Timothy 1:5 (WEY)
5  For I recall the sincere faith which is in your heart—a faith which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and then in your mother Eunice, and, I am fully convinced, now dwells in you also.

God’s plan for the church is to become stronger in every generation.  God is raising a NEW GENERATION right before our very eyes. It is a generation of children, young people who are poised to reshape our communities and the world. They are gifted and talented beyond measure!  Yet, a big part of their success will come from continued guidance and ongoing teaching to our children about the awesome wonders of God. As we seek to lead them in the Word of God, let us BELIEVE and proclaim how great the Lord has been. Let's BELIEVE NOW, that the Lord will provide, OPEN doors of opportunities, creative methods and means to keep "passing it along" to the next generation.

Lord, teach us HOW to proclaim your wonderful works and awesome power (as a witness) to our children and youth.  Show us HOW to model and demonstrate your Love and Wisdom to this generation, with all HUMILITY.  Father, bind us all together in Your perfect love and may all our Children, Youth and Young Adults reach their full potential and do great exploits. To the honor and glory to your name.  In Jesus Name -AMEN

“…Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”   Philippians 3:13b-14
Are you still holding on to your past? Are you still haunted by the sins and mistakes of yesterday? Or Are you still trying to recapture or relive the glory days of the past? Paul tells us that he has made a decision to FORGET the things in his past in order to focus on what has been promised to him through his relationship with Christ. God loves us so much that he has forgiven our sins and thrown them into the sea of forgetfulness. God word says, It’s time to MOVE FORWARD! In Christ is where forgiveness is found, wounds are healed, and relationships are restored.
Father God, you know my past, present, and future. I ask that you forgive me of any past sins that I have committed and help me with the present struggles that may keep me from experiencing the true joy of a relationship with Christ. I repent and accept your forgiveness for the mistakes of the past. I'm now leaving the past in the past. I've been here long enough, it's time to move on. Today will be the beginning of my renewed dedication and service to you, your Kingdom  and your Church. Thank you for the Open Doors to my future and the great things you have in store for my spiritual journey. In Jesus Name, AMEN

“Give all your worries and cares to God for He cares about what happens to you.” – 1 Peter 5:7

Psalm 37:5-7 (GW)
5 Entrust your ways to the LORD. Trust him, and he will act {on your behalf}. 6 He will make your righteousness shine like a light, your just cause like the noonday sun.
7 Surrender yourself to the LORD, and wait patiently for him.  
It has been said that the way to truly change a city is to start with one family at a time. The only way we change is from the inside out. The impact God has on your life directly affects the growth and changes within you. That impact reaches wherever you go, whether its your home, the church, your job. etc.  Ask yourself, “How much am I allowing God to change me? Is Christ the center of your life, the center of your joy, the center of your service?” Am I positively affecting the Vision and growth of Faith Christian Fellowship World Outreach?
I can never thank You enough God. Thank you for the family of God you've given me. I pray that I give you first place in my life. May your grace be upon every Family in my church, and our communities. (near and far) Make us One in you. Unify our hearts, so that we can work together as a team. By faith in your promises I BELIEVE now, you are healing me from all past hurts and give strength to all of us so we can endure the tough times of life. Thank you that through the power of the Holy Spirit, the love of Christ is in my family and church. In Jesus Name.

“Wait and HOPE for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and HOPE for and EXPECT the Lord.”
Psalm 27:14 AMP
In a world where there is chaos & confusion at times it can appear to be HOPELESS. As a Christian we can rejoice because of the hope we have in the Lord keeping his promises. Believe now and take courage in expecting the Lord to show up even if it is delayed. Remember, delayed does not mean denied! It just means STAY TUNED! You can help others in their struggles by sharing the message--that there is ALWAYS HOPE for tomorrow.  EXPECT IT!
Lord, thank you that in a world that seems hopeless our hope is in You. Please help us in any areas of our lives in which we struggle with doubt and unbelief. Let the hope of glory through Jesus help us throughout the day. We pray for your words of wisdom that we can share with others who need the hope of Jesus in their lives today.       In Jesus Name, Amen!
Mark 12:30 (KJV)
30] And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
Matthew 7:7 (KJV)
7 ASK, and it shall be given you; SEEK, and ye shall find; KNOCK, and it shall be OPENED unto you:
You have completed your time of fasting before God. You’ve placed yourself  in a position to hear and to see the wisdom from heaven.  But more importantly, you have enjoyed His Presence and Fellowship through asking and seeking Him.  When we seek to experience God's presence daily in worship, He can and will SATISFY the deepest longings of our souls.
Dear God, You are my God. I seek You with all of my heart. Let your presence engulf and surround me. May my life, my gifts and service be a sweet-smelling sacrifice to you. You said, if we LIFT YOU UP, that You would DRAW all men and women to yourself. As I decrease you will INCREASE in my life. I believe everytime we gather together (whether it's In-Person or Online) as we lift Jesus up that you will show Your power and glory. Thank you for my Church, Faith Christian Fellowship World Outreach. May every area, department, worker, volunteer, leader, member, or guest experience YOUR life-changing presence in all they do. We Celebrate You! Renew us all! You alone are worthy!  In Jesus Name. AMEN

"God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us."        
Ephesians 3:20-21 (MSG)
Our God has the ability to do the impossible! When we BELIEVE and SEEK God’s face, when we GRASP His infinite wisdom and power, then the miraculous can happen! Why? Because our God is willing and ABLE.
Dear Heavenly Father, we pray that you build up our faith to dare and believe that you can do the impossible. We thank you for a superabundance of love, peace, and joy in the body of Christ and in our individual lives. We ask that you bless our church and our household, with Your prosperity in order to further build and expand Your Kingdom around the world. In The Name of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus. AMEN.
