Today’s Task Reading:
Today is day 60 and we have completed 2/3rd of Faith and Fit 90 Wow!
Today when we will look at our schedule let us observe if we are scheduling time to honor God. The Sabbath day (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) is the most healing time for the body. It is also the most idea time for us to fast and pray. The Sabbath day is the best time for us to rest more and eat less. When we fast, we should rest from work and chores, we should keep it private and not proclaim to everyone our fast (limit it to close family) and we should end the fast properly.
There are different ways to honor God with our schedule. One way to honor God is with the monthly new moon. With every new moon, we prepare a feast for our family and ask God to forgive our sins and plead the blood of Jesus over our lives. We offer to God ourselves by submitting to His will and not our own will. Another way to honor God is by blessing our homes; whenever we clean our home we can listen and meditate on Psalm 51. It is a great verse to focus on when we are doing a house cleaning and house blessing. Moreover, when we honor God we are celebrating God. If we read, Psalm 81:1-7, Numbers 10:10, Isaiah 66:23 we’ll see examples of special worship services. Let us honor God with our schedule and make time to participate in special feast with our family. During those times, we can have a family dinner with scrumptious meal that includes Bible reading and study, singing psalms and spiritual songs and offering sacrifices of praise to the Lord, similar to the Last Supper.
Below are examples of occasions that we can honor God during the spring and fall feast days:
- The Passovers (Leviticus 23:5)
- The unleavened bread (Leviticus 23:6)
- The first fruit –Easter (Leviticus 23:11)
- Pentecost (Leviticus 23:16)
- Trumpets (Leviticus 25:8-10)
- Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:34)
Today’s Prayer: God, You reign forever and ever in the heavens and on earth. We are so thankful for You. You deserve all the glory, honor and praise. Let Your kingdom come and will be done in our lives. Help us to schedule time to honor God on the Sabbath, new moon and feast days. Help us to read and study the Bible. Help us to sing Psalms and spiritual songs. Help us plead for forgiveness and healing. Help us to submit to Your will. When we clean our homes, cars, Help us to meditate on Psalms 51. In all occasions, help us to honor we. We don’t want to take You for granted and bring shame to Your great and holy name. Forgive is for not taking the time to honor You. Also, we ask You to please forgive us for all our debts, trespasses, and sins as we forgive our debtors and those who have trespassed and sinned against us. Lead us not into temptation. Everyday help us to be equipped with the full armor of God as You deliver us from evil. For Yours is the Kingdom, Power and Glory. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Psalm 51 New King James Version (NKJV)
A Prayer of Repentance
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.
51 Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
4 Against You, You only, have I sinned,
And done this evil in Your sight—
That You may be found just [a]when You speak,
And blameless when You judge.
5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
And in sin my mother conceived me.
6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide Your face from my sins,
And blot out all my iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me away from Your presence,
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinners shall be converted to You.
14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
The God of my salvation,
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips,
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise.
18 Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion;
Build the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness,
With burnt offering and whole burnt offering;
Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.
Psalm 51:4 LXX, Tg., Vg. in Your words
Psalm 81:1-7 New King James Version (NKJV)
An Appeal for Israel’s Repentance
To the Chief Musician. On[a] an instrument of Gath. A Psalm of Asaph.
81 Sing aloud to God our strength;
Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob.
2 Raise a song and strike the timbrel,
The pleasant harp with the lute.
3 Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon,
At the full moon, on our solemn feast day.
4 For this is a statute for Israel,
A law of the God of Jacob.
5 This He established in Joseph as a testimony,
When He went throughout the land of Egypt,
Where I heard a language I did not understand.
6 “I removed his shoulder from the burden;
His hands were freed from the baskets.
7 You called in trouble, and I delivered you;
I answered you in the secret place of thunder;
I tested you at the waters of [b]Meribah. Selah

It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.
