DAY 1: Friday, 11th JANUARY, 2013–“OPEN UNTO ME THE GATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS”
BIBLE STUDY FOR TODAY: ISAIAH CHAPTER 26: verse 1-21.
What you do at any gate determines if you will enter; and what type gates you open determines the kind of space you will occupy after entry. Effectual prayers to shatter the gate of the strong city is what is birthed here. the strong men inside the strong city are armed, that is why you cannot approach the first day without greater ammunition to force them to surrender! Luke 11:21:“…When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.”
The Greater One is in you: 1 John 4:4:“…Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world..”
It is time to unleash the GREATER ONE in you, the MORE THAN A CONQUEROR can conquer the strong city cheaply for you.
After the praise and worship session, go with your prophetic sword into battle using these 13 prayer points for DAY 1. Pray it at midnight and midday. Pray it during the day too. Couple it with a partial fast breaking at noon, you can go further till 6pm if you have the grace, all I know by the assurance of faith in the awesome power of God that never faileth, He will answer us by Fire!!! in the name of Jesus. God bless you as you read the scriptures, confess the word of God and pray in Jesus’ name.

Isaiah 26:1-3:“In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks. Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Psalm 24:7-10:“Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.”
Deuteronomy 2:24:“Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle.”
Joel 2:1:“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;”
