Dear Beloved,
There comes a time in our walk with Christ Jesus when
mediocrity want foot the bill. There must be a paradigm shift
in our relationship with Christ Jesus. The new paradigm causes
us to inspect our motives for serving, our desire for worship,
and our commitment for giving. If the truth be told we have
not offered our best to God and as a result our ministry reach
has been limited. 1 John 4:4 states:

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them,
because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the
world.

The scripture is our call to transform and a call to a season of
GREATER. This is our season to walk in victory: spiritually,
financially, and numerically. It is my prayer that we will
experience the power of Christ Jesus in our lives. We must
pray, serve, sacrifice and most importantly give God praise in
advance for what is yet to come. GREATER!

Nevertheless, God has called us to go deeper in our relationship
with Him and with others. I am reminded of Jesus words to the
Disciples, This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and
fasting (Mark 9:29). Thus, we are called to 40 Days of
Change. As we enter into this 40 Day Fast it is my sincere
prayer that God will speak to our hearts as we attempt to grow
a deeper relationship with Him and one another.

I believe we are standing on the eve of greatness, so I am
asking as we set ourselves apart these forty (40) days that we
pray and believe God for Transformation.

Your Shepherd and Servant,
Pastor Jawwad J. Love
Instructions for the 40 Day Fast

The daily devotions are divided into eight (8) sections that
have an opening thought for you to read. The scriptures
references are taken from several portions of the Bible that
model 40 Day Fasts. Each section is aimed at different
ministries, organizations and/or needs within in our church and
our community.

Every day you will read the scripture references and
meditate on them all day.
The prayer targets are things that you will concentrate
your prayers on. They can be read and expounded
upon or as you pray let the spirit make intercession
through you.
The fast for the day is to be followed so that we are all
fasting as a unified army. If you have any health
concerns, then please use wisdom and fast according
to your ability. However, please remember that we are
putting the body under subjection.
The section that reads My Personal Prayer Target is
for you to write down your personal targets as we pray
and fast each day.
The section that reads Our Fast when indicating
juices should consist of fruit juices, vegetables juices
and/or broths. Shakes and/or smoothies would not be
considered a liquid.
The section that reads My Thoughts is for your
personal insights that the Lord may speak to you
about.
The signature section on the bottom is for you to be
accountable to yourself and to the Lord.
All scripture reading is in the New International Version
Bible unless otherwise indicated.

Instructions for the 40 Day Fast

If you would like to do a different kind of fast and only
follow the book for devotions that is perfectly fine but
you are encouraged to fast in some form during these
40 days.
You may want to try the Daniel Fast. This type of fast
is a basic diet of raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, juices and
water for the entire 40 days, from sun up to sun down
daily.
Be challenged and committed to seeking the Lord and
anticipate to see the hand of God move!

Isaiah 58:6-12
A Commitment to 40 Days of Fasting and Prayer

Isaiah 58:6-12
Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the
chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the
oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your
food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with
shelter when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn
away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will
break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of
the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the
LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here
am I. If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the
pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves
in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will
become like the noonday. The LORD will guide you always; he
will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will
strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered
garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will
rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age old
foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
As we join together as ki ngdom peopl e to separate
ourselves for these next 40 days there is much to consider and
ponder in our hearts. Things we should consider during this fast
are what is my level of commitment to complete this task? What
new things will God do in me? Our thinking should be to lay aside
everything that so easily besets us and look unto the author and
finisher of our faith. For we are a people of faith doing all things
through prayer, praise, service & sacrifice and in doing so our Lord
Jesus Christ will receive all the glory for this endeavor.

The number 40 is mentioned over 120 times in the Bible. It
may be interesting for you to find these references in your time of
personal devotions. In Matthew 4 the temptation of Jesus
signified a 40 day fast to the Father. Jesus used the word of
God accessing the power of God to come against the Devil and
overcame all temptation.
We are being called on to prepare the way for the Lord to come
and do his work in our ministry like never before. His judgments are
true yet his mercies are new. He that has an ear must hear what
his spirit is saying to us. We are to make straight the
pathway of the Lord to come and do what He has
prophesied He will do as we fast and separate ourselves
from daily comforts, pleasures and substance. He will
complete the work He has started so we must also commit ourselves
to prepare our hearts and lives in order to complete this 40 day
fast.
We are calling on His mercies to engulf our loved ones, our churches,
and His people. We are calling for Him to come like He has never
come before. We welcome His judgments because they are true and fair.
There is none other who could love us with such an everlasting love that
would prepare a way for us to go forth and proclaim the salvation of the
Lord to all those who perish, Psalms 105:1-8.

COME AND WORSHIP
EXODUS 24:1-18

Moses stayed on the mountain for 40 days and
nights. God had called him to come and worship
along with the other chosen leaders that were
called by name. We have been called by name
to spend these next 40 days in worship and
praise, waiting for instructions from the Lord.
The power of uniting as one (vs. 3) will bring an
experience that will change each and every one
of us. Our prayer is that the people of God will
do everything that the Lord has instructed us to
do. Our plea is that God will ignite
something new in us that will change and
challenge us like never before.


DAYS 1-4
I Am Committed to Complete the Task Before Me
Focus: Today is the starting day of our fast it is a day to cleanse and prepare our hearts to embrace
the full scope of what God has planned for each one of us!
Our Fast
Our fast today will be for cleansing and we shall eat only vegetables either fresh or
boiled with no sauces or dressings only salt & pepper from sun up until 5:00p.m.

John 1:1-18 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and
the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things
were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and
that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness
has not understood it. There came a man who was sent from God; his name was
John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all
men might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to
the light. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did
not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not
receive him. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he
gave the right to become children of God, children born not of natural descent,
nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. The Word
became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the
glory of the One and only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John
testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, This was he of whom I said, He
who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me. From the fullness
of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. For the law was
given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever
seen God, but God the One and only, who is at the Father's side, has made him
known.

Hebrews 10:5-7
Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: Sacrifice and offering you
did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; with burnt offerings and
sin offerings you were not pleased. Then I said, Here I am, it is written about
me in the scroll, I have come to do your will, O God.
Psalm 54:6
I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you; I will praise your name, O Lord, for it is good.
Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as
living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of
worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and
approve what God's will is his good pleasing and perfect will.

the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek
him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock. Then
my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle
will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord. Verse 8
My heart says of you, Seek his face! Your face, Lord I will seek.

DAY 4

r
THE LORD WILL GIVE US STRENGTH
I KINGS 19

In the midst of Elijahs greatest battles the Lord
gave him strength to complete the task
before him. He was in turmoil, and being
pursued by the enemy. He was battling his
human nature of fear and discouragement. Yet
God supplied food for him to eat that gave him
strength for a 40 day journey. God had a plan
for Elijah to anoint the next leaders for Israel.
Then he was to train and disciple Elisha. During
this time the greatest thing that happened was
that Elijah learned to distinguish Gods
voice even in the midst of great tribulation
and distraction. May we also experience this
as we fast and pray for these 40 days & nights.
No matter what may be happening in our life
stick to the plan and hear the voice of the Lord.


DAYS 5-11
Pastor & Family Prayer

Psalm 20 (NKJV)
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of
Jacob defend you; May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you
out of Zion; May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt
sacrifice. Selah. May He grant you according to your heart's desire, and fulfill all
your purpose. We will rejoice in your salvation, and in the name of our God
we will set up our banners! May the Lord fulfill all your petitions. Now I know
that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven
with the saving strength of His right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in
horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed
down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright. Save, Lord! May the King
answer us when we call.

Our Fast
Today we will abstain from two meals; you may eat one meal of your choice.

Romans 12:4-11
Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not
all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and
each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the
grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion
to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is
encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him
give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing
mercy, let him do it cheerfully. Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling
to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one
another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor,
serving the Lord.
2 Chronicles 34:12-13
The men did the work faithfully. Over them to direct them were Jahath and
Obadiah, Levites descended from Merari, and Zechariah and Meshullam,
descended from Kohath. The Levites, all who were skilled in playing musical
instruments had charge of the laborers and supervised all the workers from job
to job. Some of the Levites were secretaries, scribes and doorkeepers.

DAY 11


GODS CHOSEN
GENESIS 7:11-13

Noah spent 40 days hearing the rain fall upon
the ark. It is hard to imagine what he must have
been going through. Perhaps there was some
doubt that the ark would hold, remember it had
never rained before. Yet he remained about his
business attending to all the animals in the ark.
And dont forget that his family was in there
too. What were they experiencing as Noah
obeyed God. As we fast for these 40 days
remember rain may fall and we may hear the
winds beating against the doors of our lives but
we must endure. Keep believing in the mercy
and grace of our Lord to see us through. You
may even experience some feedback from your
family but remember like Noah we are standing
the gap. The next days will be focused on our
children. Stand strong even if it seems that they
are not responding. God is faithful and our
prayers are being heard. There is a future for
our families, our ministry and our church
and the future is found in our children.


DAYS 12-18
Youth
Focus: Growth of youth ministries within our church

Our Fast
No television, video games or computer chatting online. No reading of newspapers,
magazines or novels from 6:00a.m. to 6:00a.m. tomorrow, dedicate this day to Bible
reading.

1 John 2:12-17
I write to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of his
name. I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the
beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write
to you, dear children, because you have known the Father. I write to you, fathers,
because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young
men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have
overcome the evil one. Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone
loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world--
the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has
and does--comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires
pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.
Read: Zechariah 9:14-17 & Joel 2:28

excuse. Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth
and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Remember not
the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me,
for you are good, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners
in his ways. He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. All
the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his
covenant.

THE JOURNEY IS HALFWAY COMPLETED


LORD, GIVE ME A SECOND WIND OF THE
HOLY GHOST













DAY 19

I kept my pledge today__________________________________________
The Journey is Halfway Completed
Focus: Lord give me a second wind of the Holy Ghost.
Our Fast
Sunrise until tomorrow morning, this chosen fast comes from Daniel 10:3 which is, no
choice food, no meat, no wine and no anointing of the body. As a personal sacrifice to
our Lord you shall pick what your choice fast will be and abstain as unto the Lord!

Daniel 10:1-21
In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a revelation was given to Daniel (who
was called Belteshazzar). Its message was true and it concerned a great war. The
understanding of the message came to him in a vision. At that time I, Daniel,
mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips;
and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over. On the twenty-fourth
day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris, I
looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of the
finest gold around his waist. His body was like chrysolite, his face like lightning,
his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished
bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.

I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; the men with me did not see it, but
such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves. So I was left alone,
gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I
was helpless.

Then I heard him speaking, and as I listened to him, I fell into a deep sleep, my
face to the ground. A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and
knees. He said, Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words
I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you. And
when he said this to me, I stood up trembling. Then he continued, Do not be
afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and
to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in
response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one
days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was
detained there with the king of Persia. Now I have come to explain to you what will
happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.
While he was saying this to me, I bowed with my face toward the ground and was
speechless.

Then one who looked like a man touched my lips, and I opened my mouth and began to
speak. I said to the one standing before me, I am overcome with anguish because
of the vision, my lord, and I am helpless. How can I, your servant, talk with you, my
lord? My strength is gone and I can hardly breathe. Again the one who looked like
a man touched me and gave me strength. Do not be afraid, O man highly
esteemed, he said. Peace! Be strong now; be strong.
DAY 19
Day 1
DAY 19 - Continued

When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, Speak, my lord, since you have
given me strength. So he said, Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will
return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece
will come; but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. (No one
supports me against them except Michael, your prince).

THE PROMISE
NUMBERS 13

Moses dedicated 40 days for the exploration of
the land that God had promised them. As we
separate for the next 40 days we are asking
God to show us that He has for us like He did in
days past. We are claiming our inheritance and
asking God to give us possession of it. We are
praying and fasting for God to raise men and
women to take leadership positions. Our prayer
is that people will respond and not be
overwhelmed by the task laid before them,
understanding that God is with us! As we
separate ourselves we will believe for a great
move of God upon Pineville AME Zion Church.
Ask the Lord as we pray and fast that a
great army would be empowered to go
forth in the name of the Lord.

How good and pleasant it is when the brothers live together in unity!
It pleases the Lord when we dwell in unity! As our spiritual family begins to make
plans for conference time, there needs to be a spiritual joining that unifies us
because we are all of the same heritage! We are linked together to reach a hurting
and dying world and our local communities! Our spiritual family is irreplaceable
and we need to teach not only ourselves but include our next generations to have a
strong spiritual family bond and uphold this family value for one another in our home
church which will transcend into our global connection of churches. Understanding

John 8:1-11
But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. At dawn he appeared again in the temple
courts; where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to
teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman
caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus,
"Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses
commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say? They were using this
question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down
and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning
him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him
be the first to throw a stone at her." Again he stooped down and wrote on the
ground. At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones
first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus
straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned
you?" No one, sir, she said. "Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Go
now and leave your life of sin."

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for

yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. Do
not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the
body of elders laid their hands on you. Be diligent in these matters; give yourself
wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and
doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself
and your hearers.
Jeremiah 1:5-10
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." "Ah, Sovereign Lord," I said, "I do

'I am only a child.' You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I
command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,"
declares the Lord. Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth

you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and
overthrow, to build and to plant.

1 John 2:15-16
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love
of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world, the cravings of sinful man,
the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does comes not from the
Father but from the world.

For Better and For Worse
Focus: Pray that our Married Couples are strengthened & grow in Christ that they may become
mentors/ambassadors to other Married Couples.
Our Fast
Today we shall abstain from all dairy products until tomorrow morning,
example: milk, eggs and cheese.

1 Peter 3:1-9
Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not
believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their
wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should
not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold
jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading
beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. For this
is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make
themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands, like Sarah,
who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do
what is right and do not give way to fear. Husbands, in the same way be
considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker
partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder
your prayers. Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be
sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil
with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so
that you may inherit a blessing.
Read: Ephesians 4 & 1 Corinthians 13.

They preached the good news in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then
they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch, strengthening the disciples and
encouraging them to remain true to the faith. "We must go through many
hardships to enter the kingdom of God," they said. Paul and Barnabas appointed
elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to
the Lord, in whom they had put their trust. After going through Pisidia, they came
into Pamphylia, and when they had preached the word in Perga, they went
down to Attalia. From Attalia they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been
committed to the grace of God for the work they had now completed. On arriving

through them and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. And they
stayed there a long time with the disciples.

Almighty." Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which
he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said,

wages; even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the
reaper may be glad together. Thus the saying 'One sows and another reaps' is

work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.

which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. Here a great number of
disabled people used to lie, the blind, the lame, and the paralyzed. One who was
there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years When Jesus saw him lying there and
learned that he had been in this condition for a long time; he asked him, Do you
want to get well? Sir, the invalid replied, I have no one to help me into the pool
when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down
ahead of me. Then Jesus said to him, Get up! Pick up your mat and walk. At once
the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. The day on which this took
place was a Sabbath.

whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? For the
Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward
each person according to what he has done. I tell you the truth, some who are standing

himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power
