Day 8: Prayer to pray with God as our faith by speaking to “this mountain”

Pray that we will pray with God as our faith, that is, with God who has become our faith by mingling Himself with us, exercising God’s authority in our prayer and speaking to “this mountain,” telling the things that are frustrating us to go away—Mark 11:22-24; Zech. 4:7; Matt. 4:10a, 11a; Matt. 16:23a; 17:20; 18:19-20.

Mark 11:22-24—And Jesus answered and said to them, Have faith in God. Truly I say to you that whoever says to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says happens, he will have it. For this reason I say to you, All things that you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and you will have them.

Matt. 17:20—And He said to them, Because of your little faith; for truly I say to you, If you have faith like a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Matt. 18:19-20—Again, truly I say to you that if two of you are in harmony on earth concerning any matter for which they ask, it will be done for them from My Father who is in the heavens. For where there are two or three gathered into My name, there am I in their midst.


Day 9: Prayer to pray persistently as overcomers who are living by the linking faith

Pray that we will pray persistently by the linking faith, by the Triune God moving in us to link us to His unsearchable riches, knowing that the God to whom we pray is a God who hides Himself while He is doing many things for us in a hidden way, so that when the Lord Jesus returns, He will find us as His overcomers who are living by the linking faith—Luke 18:1; Isa. 45:15; Rom. 1:17b; Gal. 2:20; 2 Cor. 5:7; 1 Tim. 1:4; Luke 18:8b.

Pray that we will be God’s dispensational instrument, those through whom He can make an age-turning move, by being absolutely consecrated to God and separated unto God from an age that follows Satan, by joining ourselves to God’s desire through His Word, by being a man of prayer with an excellent spirit, a man living under God’s rule in the reality of the kingdom of the heavens, and by being a self-sacrificing person with the spirit of martyrdom—Dan. 1:8; 6:3, 10; 9:23; Num. 6:2-3, 5; Psa. 110:3; Rev. 12:11.

Dan. 1:8—But Daniel set his heart not to defile himself with the king's choice provision and with the wine that the king drank, so he requested of the leader of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

Day 11: Prayer to be today’s overcomers who live, grow, express, and propagate Christ

Pray that we will prepare ourselves to be the bride of Christ by becoming His overcomers, the components of the bride, who grow until we are matured and perfected in the divine life and who are built up to be a corporate person, a building in which God and man become a mutual abode to each other by God building Himself into man and building man into Himself—Eph. 4:13-16; Heb. 6:1a; Col. 1:28; John 14:20; 15:4a; 1 John 4:15; Rev. 21:3a, 22.

Day 14: Prayer to prepare the wedding garment, to be beautified with Christ, and to fight the battle against God’s enemy
