Revival In America?

Revival in America?
psalm85-6
 
“O, that my people had listened to Me and Israel had walked in my ways!” – Psalm 81:13
 
May America listen to God and walk in God’s ways.
 
Our God can do anything. Nothing is impossible for Him. He can bring revival, but revival starts in the hearts of God’s people.
 
3,000 years ago God instructed Israel with the remedy for idolatry and sin:
 
“If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land” – 2 Chronicles 7:14.
 
1. Note how God address His people: “If my people…” If…
 
2. Consider what God tells His people to do: humble themselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways.
 
Understand how God has promised to respond when His people obey His Word: 1) I will hear from heaven. 2) I will forgive their sins. 3) I will heal their land.
 
America needs God to forgive her sins and heal her land.
 
God wants American Christians to: humble themselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways.
 
Perhaps this is the only reason why revival tarries.
 
May the Holy Spirit awaken the hearts of every born again Christian in America, so we might be a part of God’s remedy for the nation – Jesus Christ – true revival.

For Those Who Long For Revival

4d1db2c8

Revive Us O’ LORD!

Lord Jesus,

I love You because You first loved me. I thank You for the glorious grace that You have given to me through faith in Your Gospel.

I repent for quenching the Holy Spirit in my life: because my love has grown cold and uncaring for the world around me – right where I live – in my own backyard.

I repent for grieving Your Holy Spirit in my life because I believe I am the only one doing “it” right.

I repent for the hardness of my heart in failing to seek out and fellowship with believers across the street from the “other” church that believes the biblical, true Gospel.

I repent because I have forgotten that there is only One Body of Christ filled with born again believers from different walks of life and espousing different views though solidly dedicated and faithful to the biblical Gospel – Your Gospel, to the Apostles’ Creed, to the inerrancy of the Word of God, to the work and power of the Holy Spirit, and to prayer.

I repent of the evil of my divisive and arrogant tongue that has promoted my agenda at the cost of hurting those who are truly born again.

I repent of the spiritual pride I often find in my own heart but am too weak to confront and too prideful to admit.

I repent of the bitterness I have spread and the grudges I have held against other believers who have wronged me, hurt me, gossiped about me, or shunned me from fellowship.

I repent for the ungodliness of my nation’s sexual perversion and its results: STDs, divorce, and abortion.

I repent for my nation’s idolatry: covetousness, greed, and corruption.

I repent because of ungodly leaders who have sacrificed this nation’s honor for self-aggrandizement and financial contributions.

I repent because of ungodly Supreme Court justices who uphold unholy laws.

I repent for my nation’s many, many sins against You.

I repent, Lord Jesus. I repent.

Help me see as You See. Make my heart as Your Heart. Make my life as Your Life.

Live through me, Lord Jesus.

Rule my heart today and always.

In Your Name, Lord Jesus,

Amen.

A Prayer For Unified Intercession

prayer-1

Psalm 80:17-19

Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand,
Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself.
Then we will not turn back from You;
Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.
Restore us, O LORD God of hosts;
Cause Your face to shine,
And we shall be saved!

Lord Jesus Christ, let Your loving hand be upon us. Make us strong for Your sake and for Yourself. Make us turn back to You, for we can not produce a holy passion for You in our own power, in our own wisdom, or in our own strength. We need You to fill our hearts with Your love and passion for God the Father, love for one another, and compassion for the World.

Revive us, O’ Lord Jesus, and we will call upon Your name! We need You to revive our hearts because we are powerless to revive them in our own strength. When You revive us, we, Your Body, will call upon Your Name together in unity – corporately – fellowship to fellowship and house to house.

Restore us, O’ LORD God of Hosts! You are the only One who can restore us, renew us, and help us live passionate, holy lives for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Cause Your face to shine upon us! Do not hide Your face from us; we come to seek Your face that we may reflect Your glory to all fellow believers and to all the world around us.

Holy Spirit, fill us once again.

Amen.
