Two Prayer Models
Nehemiah 1:4 And it came to pass, when I heard
these words, that I sat down and wept, and
mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed
before the God of heaven..
• Fasting is about the condition of the heart, not
the number of days.
• Fasting is a powerful spiritual discipline of all
the Christian disciplines. Through fasting and
prayer, the Holy Spirit can transform your life.
• When God's people fast with a proper Biblical
motive-seeking God's face not His hand - with
a broken, repentant, and contrite spirit, God
will hear from heaven and heal our lives, our
families, our churches, our communities, our
nation and our world.
• Fasting and prayer can bring about revival and
the fulfilment of the Great Commission.
• True spiritual fasting focuses on God. Schedule
your time to spend with God in fellowship,
worship, and adoration of Him, and the more
you read and meditate upon His Word, the
greater your effectiveness will be in prayer and
the more meaningful your fast will be.
• Whether you hold a 1-day fast or an extended
days fast, we pray that it will create a new,
healthy pattern and discipline in your life; may
our Lord's most wonderful love and blessings
be poured out on you as you take this exciting
step of faith.
• If you are pregnant or are on medication and/or
under the care of a physician, please consult the
physician before beginning any fasting.
Introduction Fasting Guide
• We, as a church, are going to do PRAYER
AND FASTING for the next 40 days by using
this CHART so that we can continue to
grow in walking with Him even after this
• PRAYER GUIDE: We encourage you to use
it together with the chart so that you will
be blessed & strengthened.
• FAST once a week (set aside Wednesday
as our fasting day) during the 40 days
period - Except the 1st week on 24 hours
Prayer & Fasting, we will fast from Friday
6pm – Sat 6pm. You can do full fast and
only drink water for the day. Or you can do
partial fasting i.e. only skipping certain
meals in a day.
• Even if you miss some days, please
continue on without leaving a gap.
Therefore, it means that it may take more
than 40 days. However, it is very important
that you complete the chart.
• Please journal whatever the Holy Spirit
says to you.
• If you have any difficulties, please ask your
leaders to help you.
1. Pray with A.C.T.S. ~Adapted from Prayercentral~
Adoration – “Praise be to God!” -Psalms 68:35
Tell God how much you appreciate Him. Express your
love for Him. Praise His power and majesty. This is a
great way to begin your prayer time.
“How awesome are your deeds!” -Psalms 66:3
Confession – “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and
just, and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all
unrighteousness.” -1 John 1:9
Tell Him where you have fallen short. Be specific. Also ask
for help and strength to turn away from future temptations.
Thanksgiving – Always “glorify him with thanksgiving” -
You have plenty of reasons to be thankful. Thank God for
His love, His faithfulness, His patience and a million other
things. Express gratitude for what He’s doing in your life.
Thank Jesus for dying on the cross for you. Thank the
Holy Spirit for indwelling you, and never leaving. Thank
Him for being your conscience, your counselor and that
“still small voice.”
Supplication – “Make your requests known to God.” -
Philippians 4:6. Tell God what you want, no matter how
small it seems to you.
2 . A simple prayer guide to pray for the lost:
• Thumb: “good”
Remind God that they [our
oikos/community/nation] are valuable/precious
• Index finger: “pointing”
Pray against the work of the accuser
• Third finger: “3rd person of the Trinity”
Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring conviction of sin
• Fourth finger: “wedding ring finger”
Pray that the Holy Spirit will reveal to them their
need for God and His love
• Little finger: “little me”
Pray that God will use you
