Day 5 Giving God Possession of Our Community

Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

We have been filled with the Holy Spirit that we would be witnesses to Jesus in our communities. Our emotions tell us to be concerned about how our community may affect us, but the Holy Spirit is within us that we would affect our community.

Today we fast and pray to be “salt and light” in our churches, neighborhoods, workplaces and community at large. We repent if our selfish concerns have taken the form of a covering for the light within us. We declare today that we will walk worthy of our calling and make faithful use of the “lamp stand” within us. We give possession of our communities to Jesus, we seek His, “that none would perish”’ and devote ourselves to freedom, healing, redemption and love in every place that God has set our feet.
