“12 Days Prayer & Fasting for Spiritual Revival”


A few years ago as I sought the Lord at the beginning of the New Year, the number 12 resonated in my spirit. Every number has meaning and the number 12 is a combination of the number 1, which means “Stay positive”, and the number 2, which means “Keep the faith.” Together, the number 12 is a strong message to “Stay Positive, Remain Optimistic and Filled with Faith”—because our positive thoughts, attitude, prayers and faith will create positive outcomes! With this revelation God gave me the vision to write my book entitled “PRAYER: The Key To Unlocking Blessings”, which is a 12-Day scripture based plan for Prayer & Fasting.

As the people of God stand together on 2 Chronicles 7:14 in one accord Prayer and Fasting a SHIFTING will take place in the SPIRITUAL REALM—People will be delivered from demonic possession, oppression and depression! Strongholds will be broken! The lost will be saved! Backsliders will return to the Lord! The Church will truly Be The Church! Broken relationships will be mended! Failed marriages will be restored! Prodigal children will turn back to God and obey their parents! Debts will be cancelled! The sick will be healed! Saints will be edified and God will be glorified! We will truly experience SPIRITUAL REVIVAL in our land, which will positively impact everything in the physical realm.

This is a Call for every Christian reading this post to commit to joining together for 12-Days Of Prayer & Fasting Starting Monday, January 6th @7:00AM and ending Friday, January 17th @7:00PM. We will Pray & Fast each day for 12-hours (7am-7pm). Each day during this timeframe we will follow specific scripture based prayer focuses outlined in the book, “Prayer: The Key To Unlocking Blessings”, by Mary A. Ford. Please encourage other Christians to join together in this one accord time of Prayer & Fasting—all are Welcome!🙏🏽

God wants to do GREATER “IN” each of us so that HE can do GREATER “Through” each of us individually and collectively as the body of Christ. BUT….some things ONLY come by Prayer & Fasting. Hallelujah and Amen!

“And when He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?” So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.”” (Mark 9:28-29 NKJV)







“Abba Father “

Abba Father, I pray that Christians will find true delight in YOU being Lord of their lives. I pray we seek Your will in ALL things, especially in times of crisis and unrest in our lives. Father, Help those who are hurting due to loss of loved ones during this holiday season. Give them your peace that pass all understanding and guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. And Father, for those who have been blinded by the lies and deceit of the enemy, open their eyes and free them from that terrible grip so that they are finally free to truly experience life according to your will and purpose. For we know that this present darkness penetrating our land and devastating your people is not something to be overcome in the flesh, but we who are spiritual must mount up for battle in the spiritual realms! With our most steadfast holy faith wearing the whole Armor of God, praying in the spirit without ceasing at ALL times and in ALL situations, help us, Oh Lord, to forge ahead in Jesus’ holy name! Father, when we get weak, frightened, discouraged and have no peace, help us find peace in Your presence and renewed strength and hope in Your promises to never leave or forsake us! Thank you, Father, for your divine love that lights up the darkest days of our lives! Thank you, Father, for Your peace and mercy that follows us always!

Thank you, Father, for being the righteous Judge over all! Thank you, Father, that your grace is sufficient! Thank you, Father, for being Lord of Lords and King of Kings! Therefore, I will lift up holy hands and give you all the glory, honor and praise all the days of my life! Hallelujah and Amen…IJN!☝🏾🙌🏼🙏🏽

“I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” (Psalm 91:2-4)

“A Christmastime Prayer”

Heavenly Father,

I pray for physical, spiritual, mental and emotional health and healing for your children who may be suffering, in the hospital, sick at home, distressed, oppressed, depressed, or just need a breakthrough! I pray for deliverance from strongholds in the lives of your people…alcohol, drugs, pornography, homosexuality, perverse behavior—they all MUST GO, IN JESUS’ NAME! Father we evict from the hearts and minds demonic suppression, oppression, paranoia and depression in Your people—they all MUST GO IN THE MIGHTY MATCHLESS NAME OF JESUS! Father…We come pleading the saving BLOOD OF JESUS and CLAIMING THE VICTORY as we BIND those things here on earth that will cause YOU not to get the glory you deserve in Heaven! By the Power of The Word We demolish everything that sets itself up against the knowledge, ways, and will of Christ Jesus, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ and His will for our lives! Deliver your children, Oh Lord—Set our feet upon a rock and establish our goings—giving us hinds feet so that we can successfully maneuver the slippery slopes of life and dodge the dangerous snares of the enemy! Lord, lift our heads high above our enemies and set us on a plain path—not wavering to the left nor right, but walking upright in Holy Boldness, allowing you to perfect every good work within us…ALL FOR YOUR GLORY, OH Lord! l humbly pray this prayer and praise You always…Amen🙏🏽
