"The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results." James 5:16 (NLT)
Pray for Revival
Pray for revival in our nation according to the instruction in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
If my people, who are called by name will humble themselves: Pray In humility: expressing our need of God’s intervention.
Pray and seek my face: Pray that people will be overcome with the need to pray individually and corporately. Pray that every church will realize that there must be times when people come together to pray. Pray that people will have a renewed desire to seek God’s face.
Repentance: Repentance in our own personal lives, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any areas that need to be repented over. Repentance for areas that the church in America has turned away from God. Repentance in an intercessory way on behalf of our nation. Our nation has removed Biblical values from our laws and way of living. For an example of an intercessory prayer (praying on behalf of someone else, see Daniels prayer in Daniel 9:4-19)
Prayer for faith that God will hear and send conviction on people in our land so that they cry out for forgiveness and mercy. Have faith that when people repent and return to God’s word, that our land will be healed.
It is way past time for another national awakening. A national awakening is when there is a sovereign move of God and such a spirit of conviction covers the land so that people cry out in repentance and turning to God. We must press in until we see this happen. God will send this in response to the fervent prayers of His people on behalf of the nation.
