OBJECTIVE: Jesus taught us to bring the Kingdom of God through a constant prayer as we persevere until we see His complete work in our families.
PROMISE: Matthew 7: 7-8 ¨ 7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.¨
MONDAY, APRIL 19:
On this first day of fasting we will be unleashing forgiveness.
Forgiveness is necessary to be able to love God with all our heart, with all
our soul and with all our strength. (Deuteronomy 6: 5)
Matthew 6:12 ¨And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.¨
Today is the day to forgive: spouses, children, mothers, fathers, friends, relatives, nephews,
uncles, etc. Take some time to examine your life and ask God to heal your relationships with family and others through FORGIVENESS.
Tips for Prayer:
-Apply the Blood that Jesus shed when he was in the Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus was betrayed and he felt alone ... his pain was so great that drops of blood came out of his forehead.
- Today that Blood of Jesus is applied to your life. Give to God all betrayal and emotions that were damaged by loved ones.
-Apply the Blood that Jesus shed when his beard was pulled. His face was disfigured because of mockery, due to that Jesus restored our identity.
- Today that Blood restores your identity and just as Jesus was able to forgive those who hurt him, today you can forgive those who damaged your life and forgive them.
TUESDAY, APRIL 20
On this day we will be unleashing healing to the emotions of our families.
Matthew 5: 4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
We know that emotions may have been affected from the mother's womb, in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. It is important to discover each of those moments in out life and ask that the arms of our Father and his consolation be on each one of us and our families.
Tips for Prayer:
- Examine which were the experiences that marked the different stages of your life and give them to the Father. (hurtful words, bulling, abuse, betrayal)
- Ask God to give you the characteristic of Jesus to be meek, calm, pacifying. In this way, you can have mercy even to those who have damaged your emotions.
- Cry out to God so that He restores all relationships damaged because of the yelled, shouting, anger that perhaps you committed or was done to you.
- Pray for the Lord to change your heart and your family's heart. May each heart be sensitive to God to love one another.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21
On this third day we will be unleashing mercy in our families.
Matthew 5: 7 "Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy"
Our families would be so different if we applied the principle of MERCY. Mercy changes the environment of a home, of healthy relationships, and it helps us to see other people with the eyes that God sees them.
Mercy would warn us when we would be about to say something that would harm the other person; it would stop us from hurting the emotions of those around us. Mercy opens doors of healing, harmony, and peace in our homes.
Tips for Prayer:
- Ask and cry out so that your life and your family's life have the characteristics that Jesus preached in Matthew 5:7-9: Mercy, a clean heart and being peacemakers.
- Ask the Father that the heart of your family may be transformed. Instead of fights, differences, divisions, practical and hurtful jokes there may be harmony, peace, healing, mercy, that each one of your family be an agent of peace.
