Scripture: Proverbs 28:1 (NIV) The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.
Fasting/prayer focus: Boldness in our areas of influence
(1) Bold because of Christ and our Faith in Him Ephesians 3:11-12 This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord. Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.
(2) Because God is with us Hebrews 13:6 (NIV) 6 So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
(3) Bold when it hurts 2 Corinthians 4:8-10 (NIV) 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
