A daily verse about the state of our nation and time for Christians reflect and unite in prayer, asking God to send a revival across our land and turn our nation back to Him.

Do we need a revival?

Revival is needed when there is No Remorse

If anyone needed to experience revival, Cain did. After Cain killed his brother and became guilty of the world’s first murder, God asked Cain where Abel was. Cain had the audacity to flippantly reply to God, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?” He denies any knowledge about his brother and shows no sign of remorse. God therefore punishes Cain by alienating him from both the ground (he was a farmer) and God. He becomes a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.

My Punishment is “too much”

Not only does Cain not demonstrate remorse for his actions, but he complains that God’s punishment is “greater than he can bear.” He whines to God that because of God’s punishment that whoever finds him will kill him. So God places a mark on Cain (the Bible doesn’t tell us what the mark is, but it had to be something visible). Additionally God declares that whoever kills Cain, then vengeance would be taken on him sevenfold.

The Result

Not once do we see Cain repenting or seeking God’s mercy and grace. However, God gave it in the sense of providing protection over Cain’s life. Yet still we find one of the saddest verses in the Bible in Genesis 4:16. “Then Cain went away from the presence of the Lord and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.” The word, “Nod” means “wandering,” or “exile.” Cain would have rather lived in his sin than to be in the presence of the Lord!

The Need for Revival

  1. Is there true remorse and repentance for sin in our nation?
  2. Would people today rather live in their sin then to be in the presence of God?
  3. How has God extended his grace to our nation over the years? Do you believe that God is getting tired of giving grace to a nation prefers living in sin to dwelling in His presence?

Praying for Revival

Father, we only have to listen to the news or read the newspapers to see how rampant sin is. We can see how political parties and our government continue to lead our nation on a path away from you. We ask that Christian in our nation will become burdened for the sin that runs rampant without a heart of remorse. Forgive us our sins. Cause us to seek your face with all our heart, mind, and soul. May we humbly bow before you, pray, and turn from our wicked ways with hearts that are broken and contrite. Give us boldness to stand up and follow your commandments. May we once again become a nation that honors you.

Lord, send a revival and let it begin in me.
