Pursuing Intimacy With God
James 1:22 “Do not merely listen to the word. … Do what it says.”
Dear Abba Father,
Today, as we enter the 4th day of prayer and fasting, how thankful we are for Your leading to live a different kind of life: to be Your obedient children, as we sit, listen, and obey. Father, be merciful to us for we often are frustrated because of our disobedience. When You see us from Your secret place trembling at Your word, endow us with great favor. Grant us a willing spirit to sustain us and bless us. Your presence is so sweet when we obey; my heart is on fire in the depth of Your love. Abba Father, grant us once again grace and mercy to help us grow closer to You and become more obedient to You.
In the name of Lord Jesus Christ we pray, Amen!
Repentance for Self 04
Luke 12:15 and he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Matthew 19:29And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold[a] and will inherit eternal life.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for Your great love for us! You did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but You humbled Yourself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross— so that we would have the full salvation: delivered from death and ushered into glory! You have asked us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love others as ourselves. Lord, I am willing but I am weak. I have often withdrawn from what I know I ought to do. I am like a branch that is not always connected to the vine, so that I’m not able to bear much fruit to glorify Your name.
Lord, forgive me for loving the world and the things of the world. Although I honor You with my mouth, my heart is far away from You. I lack understanding of Your heart. I am often weighed down by the cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and have mis-managed my priorities. I struggle with the inability to take hold of Your truth, and have suffered stagnant spiritual life and deception by the enemy as a result.
(You may skip over the ones that does not apply)
Lord, forgive me for the many falsehood I have entertained in my life. Forgive me for participating in viciousness, lies, evil thoughts, and all kinds of filth and corruption in the heart, including self-centeredness, laziness, greed, blame-shifting, contentiousness, aggressiveness, viciousness, ridiculing others, being unjust, ignorant, unthankful; harboring sinister, envious and hateful thoughts; gloating, gossiping, spreading disputes, boasting, pride, neglecting God, being demanding and demeaning to others; rebelling against parents, being ruthless, indulging selves, and encouraging others to do the same. Rebellionagainst authority, breaking trust, failure to abide by Your teachings and breaking Your covenants; setting others up as idols as well as worshiping the created instead of the Creator; following after the vices of non-believers, only to satisfy my own desires and fulfilling my own aspirations.
Lord, heal me of my rebellious and sinful ways. Give me a humble and righteous spirit. Renew my mind to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with my God. In Jesus’ name, amen.

【Zec 4:6 Australia is located in both the Southern and the Eastern Hemisphere. It is a country and continent surrounded by the Indian and South Pacific oceans. It is the world’s sixth sixth-largest country by total area.
Australia is a country that has religious freedom, with a 68% of the national population declared some variety of Christianity. However, due to the secularization of the church and the pursuit of pleasure and wealth, the society failed to see the influence of Gospel, and traditional churches are losing followers in droves. here are 250,000 Muslims, 85,000 Jews and 350,000 Aboriginal in Australia. But meanwhile, there are about 630,000 overseas student from all around the world come here to study.
The First Nation (Aboriginal) people, known as “Stolen Generations”, were the Australian Aboriginal children that were influenced by the policy of assimilation implemented by the Australian government during 1909-1970. At that time, the government regarded the Australian Aboriginal as “low and ignorant” and “doomed to extinction”, around 100,000 Aboriginal children were permanently removed removed from their own families and sent to white families or organizations run by government.
Australian Aboriginal were mistreated and abused, they were also forced to give up their own language and culture, through which the Aboriginal suffered both physically and psychologically.
In February, 2008, the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd made apologies to the Stolen Generations officially three times in the parliament, and promised to make efforts to improve the standard of living.
In December 2017, Australia passed the same-sex marriage Bill, making it the 26th country where the same sex marriage is legal.】
- Repent for Australia: May the Lord forgives the sins and rebellion of the government that legalized the same-sex marriage, and some churches that affirming same-sex marriage, we ask God for His mercy and grace upon Australia to turn back to His face.

Today we stand in the gap and repent for what the government has been done. We ask for you healing and comfort towards your people, to restore and honor their identities. And we call forth the First Nation people to position themselves as the elder son, to arise and shine! We cry out for the Spirit of unity to pour out upon Australia, and bring down the anointing of breakthroughs, so all the tribes of the nation will enter the gate of grace in 2018!
- Pray for prime minister Malcolm Turnbull of Australia: May God bless PM Malcolm Turnbull with wisdom from up high so he can truly understand Your authorities, Your will. Open up his eyes to see he has sinned against You and led Australia astray from You by leading Australia into legalizing same sex marriage and abortion. Help him repent and turn back to You, to bring Australia backto the way of godliness and holiness. May God grant him wisdom and ability to rule the nation, be diligent and love his people, bring peace and prosperity to the country. Show Yourself strong in the election of 2019, so he kniws You rule and reign among the people, and cause him to humble himself to follow You.
