Day of Fasting and Prayer Today

Published by:

Pastors Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda, All Nations Church in Fort Mill, SC, have declared today a day of fasting and prayer. (We realize that many people because of health condition can not fast food and water. Fast what you can. Maybe food. Maybe meat and sweet. Maybe television. Whatever the Lord leads.)

Weekly Watch Focus: Raise the Shield! Wield the Sword! Corporate Call to Pray and Fast

Battle Lines Are Drawn—

The assault is on public confidence because panic creates chaos and shuts down love.
The assault is on love because that’s who God is.
The assault is on the business community because it funds the work of God. The assault is on the FAITH of believers because we are the salt and light. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, “The Church is the only hope for the world.” We are set up for a massive display of God’s recovery!

We—the Church everywhere, believers on the earth—are the front line of defense and offense. Raise your shield and wield the sword of your word in agreement with God’s word in this moment.

Two things this week:

FAST

Following up with the President’s call and National Day of Prayer, we are calling you to participate in a day of fasting this Thursday, March 19. You may fast in any form you have grace for. We are asking everyone to participate. If you choose to fast food, some of all that stuff you may have packed into your cupboard will just go that much farther! For our ANC family local and abroad, we were going to “honor Pastor Bonnie” for her birthday coming up this Friday, March 20th. She asks that in lieu of gifts you join with her in the fast day this Thursday.

We are fasting according to Psalm 2:6-8: “Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.’”

PRAY

For America. Fast and pray for America’s victory in the full-fledged battle against the coronavirus outbreak. Lift up a concerted prayer for our nation to be hidden in the shadow of the Most High. Lift up the name of Jesus and the Lord’s banner of victory over this disease. Pray for the administrations on national, state, and local levels to effectively cooperate and collaborate. Pray they mobilize our best reach and resource to turn the tide of infection and begin national recovery of health to our citizenry and economy. Bind spirits of panic, isolation, greed, and the kind of “self preservation” that disregards concern for a neighbor as well as one’s self. Ask for America!

For Italy. She is the spiritual mother of the faith of Christians around the world for generations. She has been put on display globally as an epicenter of celebrating Christ, specifically the sacred beauty and power of His death on the cross through the Eucharist. Regardless of your theology or ours, putting Jesus on display through faith appropriated in His body and blood is the demonstration of the gospel: “Every time you do this you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes” (1 Cor. 11:26). It is the ultimate challenge to the kingdom of darkness and the kingdoms of this world. It is His “blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins…poured out for many…given for you!”

Italy is being crushed beneath the shadow of coronavirus. The infection rate has spiked, the healthcare system has been pressed beyond capacity and medical workers are now having to choose whom to save. Nearly a quarter of Italy’s population are octogenarians, the most vulnerable and highest risk for this infection.

In the midst of this crisis, we are also we are seeing the incredible love and resilience of the Italian people under lockdown quarantine out on their balconies filling their atmosphere with songs of love and solidarity for one another. Let’s join them, America.

The Italian Airforce gives a Big Emotional lift to their Nation.

Pray for supernatural turnaround. We lift up every aspect of Italy’s medical facilities and workers. Pray for the families being hit by this crisis, the governing agencies and decision makers, and their supply lines.

Bind fear and accusation.

Loose the consolation of the Holy Spirit and recovery of all that has been stolen from them as a people, as families, as a nation.

Pray for the Church and believers across the nation to be anointed with fresh healing power and testimony to proclaim the gospel in this hour of trouble.

Pray for the Vatican, Pope Francis, and Father Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household under the two previous popes and current Pope. We have had the joy of meeting Father Cantalamessa on several occasions. He is a wonderful vessel of joy and love who was filled with the Holy Spirit in the U.S. during the Charismatic Renewal of the 1970’s in which Derek Prince, our spiritual father and your spiritual grandfather, played such a significant role.

As you pray for Italy, thank the Lord for your New Testament:
· Apostle Paul’s “prison letters” written from Rome;
· Ephesians, the great “Church” anthem;
· Philippians, the affectionate brotherhood epistle;
· Colossians, the majestic ode to the Son King;
· Philemon, the appeal and plea for social justice and brotherly kindness.

CHANGE OF MEETING LOCATION

Published by:

After some deliberation and prayer, it has been decided that we are going to switch to meeting at my house. This should take care of folks who need to not be in germ’s way and keep up appropriately private, etc. We had hoped to make this move in a few weeks anyway.

However, even though I do not live here alone and even though it is a safe neighborhood, I do not want to put the address on the internet. Please email me for the address. We meet at 9:30. Tommorrow we will have something like breakfast type refreshments. In future, we will attempt a potluck.

Oh, we have exciting times. I am very encouraged. Revival is upon us. HalleluJah.

Agenda: Did you know that Purim just happened? I think this is very prophetic in regard to current events. The President of the USA and Franklin Graham, and Pastor Mahesh Chavda have all asked us to join in the National Day of Prayer (of repentance on behalf of the nation and asking God’s mercy and help facing covid-19) and this we will do. We have not forgotten that we are in a series studying the Holy Spirit. So it will be a great morning.

Please make every effort to come. We are in the beginning days of this congregation and of a great move of God. You will want to say you were there. Indeed, you want to be here.

Prayer Worship

Entrance into Deep Prayer

Published by:

Text for last Sunday was Psalm 100:1&2, and Psalm 95.
Pattern is enter into his gates with Thanksgiving. We thought a bit about thanksgiving, after we understood “gates.”
And into His courts with Praise. Once we understand Jesus’ work for us, we begin to praise Him. Praise is appropriate for his court.
That was noisy, but then in Ps 95:6, we get to quiet: worship. Deep worship is often not noisy. In deep worship, follwoing the chapter, we can better hear his voice, better move in obedience better see miracles, and we can enter into rest.
This sounds ho-hum? No! this is entrance into the deep things of God.

Prayer Meeting on Friday Evening

Published by:

We have been on the quiet side. First, our Wednesday am women’s group started moving around to accommodate one we were trying to help. Then I was dealing with a family issue.  We are ready to stir up again. Particularly, I’ve been for a long time searching for a Friday night prayer meeting. Clearly, our nation needs prayer. It is time for us to join hands across denominations and pray. Well, if no one is going to do it, I am. Please contact me for address.

 

 

ANNOUNCEMENT: NOW PRAYING ON FACEBOOK, PROMOTING GOD’S KINGDOM AT 7:00PM

fyi: Lance Wallnau on the current situation. Let’s pray Jeremiah 49 with Lance. As one!

Lots more is coming.

BTW, every website gets a lot of spam. I notice this website has started to get spam, but of a particular character: occultic! We will take that as confirmation that we are making a difference. Derek Prince taught, as do his proteges, the Chavdas that such resistance is a time to rejoice. It means that the spirit realm sense God is planning great things. In any case, we believe that Jesus is Lord of all. Don’t you? Don’t you want that kind of God, the kind that lives, dies, and lives again for you?
