God has not forgotten your prayer. Your prayer will give you a gift and a gift from God. Fear not because your prayer has been answered. A number of us have old prayers that have not been answered - the prayers you have forgotten God has answered them. What makes your prayers get answered? 1. Service 2. Grace. All of u are called to offer service to God
The purpose of this prayer and fast is for sanctification and consecration for 2016. 2016 is a banquet before us being filled with all sorts of things that delight our hearts. You have a choice to accept or refuse the banquet. Pay attention to what goes on in your heart and that which you keep in your heart. In 2016, you have decisions to make, people to meet and travelling to do. The prayer and fast is to prepare us for what is ahead of us in 2016, for God to go before us. We need to take out all the rubbish that is in our hearts: Unbelief, Self centeredness, Negativity, Self-pity, Sin, and Insecurity. We need to create space (make room) in our hearts and lives for Christ. We need to have confidence in Him alone and trust in Him.

God is not unjust, He is not biased and will not abuse you - God is faithful and just in your life. God rewards those that serve Him - He pays service not christianity. God is moved by those that honour Him. You need perserverence/endurance: 1. As you serve, God is also training and teaching you 2. There will be a time we feel like giving up 3. There will be adversity/resistance. Continue to have faith as you serve the Lord

The dream of God for your life is bigger than the dream you have for your life – The only thing is to trust Him. Always check yourself because you might end up falling into professionalism. When you heart is moved, you do not check the title or identity of the person. Elements we must take note of in order to win the lost: 1. Love - REMOVE indifference, Selfishness, Professionalism. EMBRACE compassion 2. KNOW the Heart of the Father 3. UNDERSTAND the Purpose of your existence

The global mandate for Christians is the Great commission. For global mandate to take place there must be a change to attitude towards the great commission. 3 things that will help us change our attitude are: 1. Jesus has universal attitude - Jesus is in charge of everything (heaven & earth). His authority is universal. 2. Deal with the issue of attitude as far as spiritual leaders’ authority is concerned. Spiritual authority should be worthy of being submitted to. 3. Our own authority as people of God over the society. (a)Go out there and be a Christian. (b)Get into prayer - seriously into prayer. (c) Proclaim. There is an urgency of carrying out the great commission - a shift in the landscape of society is imminent
When you reach to a place of saying "How do I?" you acknowledge that you are limited and only God can do it for you. You need to uproot that which has been planted that is not needed. You need to pull down things that have been built and established (Strongholds and Imaginations). It is your dream that needs to be planted in this season. What God says will come to pass if you believe it or not

God will raise churches to show that it is possible to break the limitations. God will continue to push the church. Everything started by God has a tendency to grow – if it does not grow, there is something wrong. God installed growth and multiplication in everything that He does - that is why the church is growing. God is raising a generation of altar breakers who will use the same materials to build an altar unto God. All of us have a season to set on stage and prepare the next generation. We need to cultivate a generation that is filled with righteousness and holiness.
God had an idea and a mind for the church – to change and make a difference in people’s lives. The church is the foundation and the pillar of truth. The church was made to be a pace setter, trendsetter, a change maker. The impact of a church is seen in the way lives are lived and transformed through the people that the church does ministry in. When people come to the church, there must be a before and after. Church is meant to change our lives – you must come in ignorant and come out empowered. The best training ground is church

The power of a blessing is in an individual. You might not look like it or feel it but the blessing is in you. God has installed a "divine application" (being blessed) in us that allows us to access it and do mighty things in our lives. The key to unlocking the blessings is in Jesus Christ - we need to be in Jesus Christ to unlock the blessing. Spiritual and divine empowerment unlocks natural empowerment - If you win it in the spirit, it will be won in the natural!
