JANUARY CONSECRATION CALENDAR
WHAT IS A CONSECRATION CALENDAR?
A consecration is a short season in which the people of God dedicate themselves to seeking him in special and focused ways. Our January consecration will consist of corporate prayer and fasting each day - see Isaiah 58 | Daniel 10:3 | Matthew 4:2 | Esther 4:16.. etc.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
Please read and reflect on each daily theme and Scripture and adhere to the short prayer instruction for that day.
WHAT ARE THE SUGGESTED EATING PROGRAMS?
Option 1: If you decide not to abstain from meals, consider eating only fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and healthily prepared chicken or fish. Also, consider drinking only water or fruit juices (no added sugar). It is suggested that you abstain from sweets, sodas, and desserts.
Option 2: If you decide to abstain from meals, consider doing so until 3 PM on Tuesdays and Fridays. Drink water throughout the day and follow the same eating principles suggested in the first option for your evening meal.
Option 3: You may decide to engage in a personal time of consecration in which you prayerfully decide on the days and duration of your fast and the foods from which you will abstain.
PLEASE CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN FOR WISE EATING PRINCIPLES
BEFORE ENGAGING IN ANY RADICAL DIETARY CHANGES.
DAILY PRAYER OF AFFIRMATION
We honor and praise your holy name and thank you for your love, grace, mercy, and power. You have sustained West Angeles Church through the storms and challenges of the past three years, and we ask you for divine favor, blessing, and increase in 2023. We commit ourselves to your will and your ways and to the wonderful plans and purposes that you have for our lives. We also ask you to minister salvation, healing, peace, and prosperity to our communities, our city, our nation, and the entire world. Help us, O Lord, to remain faithful to the life, ministry, and support of our local church; to fulfill the tremendous vision that you have given to our leader; and to be a force for positive change in the world. We pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will be exalted and that the winds of revival will begin to blow across the globe. We pray for a great outpouring of your Spirit this year, and we give you glory, honor, and praise. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray.
A RECOMMITMENT TO PRAYER AND THE WORD
Prayer is communication with the Triune God. Prayer is the way that God has ordained for us to contact him, fellowship with him, and bring to him the burdens of our hearts. As we prayerfully read, study, and meditate on God’s Word, we also begin to discern his will and plans for our lives. Therefore, we speak to God through prayer and God speaks to us through his Word. In 2023, let us recommit ourselves to prayer and the Word of God. God wants to reveal his love and power to us in special ways, so let us return to the basics in order to prepare for what he is saying and doing. May this year be one of the greatest years in your life and in the life and ministry of West Angeles Church.
