Devotions for After 40 Days of Prayer & Fasting – Day 45

Day 45 Doing What He Did

Daily Prayer: “Jesus I want to know you more intimately. I want to experience the fullness of your Holy Spirit and power in my life. I want you to use me to impact this world for you!”

Read focus passage John 14:12-17. As you read, let the exciting promise of the Holy Spirit hit you: you can do what Jesus did!

Read out loud the focus verse for today: John 14:12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” Repeat this verse over and over to yourself today.

Meditate today: anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. Through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit Jesus promises that you [anyone] will be able to do what He did and even greater things… to lead others into His kingdom.      

Spend 30+ min in prayer in the morning taking to heart the amazing promise of Jesus words that you will “do even greater things”. Do this at other times during the day as well. Weep at the foot of the cross in thanksgiving to God and Christ for all they did to make it possible for you follow in Christ’s steps and do what He did. Claim the promise of His word in your life to do what He did and even greater things to save others and change the world.

Closing prayer: “Holy Lord Jesus, thank you for raising me up with you so I can do what you did. Now as I step out of 40 days of prayer and fasting, use me to change the world.”
