12 Days Prophetic Prayer and Fasting 2021

Theme: Engaging Godly Altars for a Better 2022

2 Samuel 24:18-25

2 Samuel 24:18, 25 (NKJV) And Gad came that day to David and said to him, “Go up, erect an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.” 25. And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.


The word altar appears 433 times in the bible, beginning from Genesis 8:20 to Revelation 16:7. Altars are not foreign to bible people, both Old and the New Tetstament people are familiar, with altar and its significance. The altar is a place of spiritual transactions and divine exchanges. It is also the place of prayer, power, sacrifice, commitment, communion and covenant.

Altars are identified or classified in various ways in the Bible: (i) By what they are made of, like the altar of stone, because it is made with stone, (Exodus 20:25; 27:1). (ii) By what is offered on them, like altars of burnt offering, because burnt offerings were offered upon them, (Exodus 30:27-28). (iii) By the name of the entity that powers it, like the altar of the God of Israel, because it is powered by the God of Isreal (Genesis 33:20).

Different Types of Altar

A quick review of the scriptures revealed, that not all altars are powered by the God of Israel, there are also altars powered by foreign gods. Therefore, to identify the forces behind the altar, you will need to observe the activities and the lifestyle of the people connected to that altar. Altars can have generational impact, on people and places connected to them. For example, Jacob the grandson of Abraham encountered God at Bethel, the place where Abraham built his second altar, when he arrived in Shechem.

There are altars raised by godly men and women in the bible, which were powered by God Almighty. When you study the lives of these great men and women, you can traced their greatness and the exploit of their lives, to various altars linked with their names. So, what you read about Abraham’s life is accessible, by the power of the altars associated with his life. The testimonies of David can be replicated, by engaging the altars linked with his life.

To this effect, in the next 12 days, as we are pulling down altars fashioned against our lives and destiny, we shall also be erecting and engaging altars of blessing, in our favour for 2022 through prayer, fasting and the promises of God.
