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. If you long for revival in America (or your nation) we invite you to reflect on these daily verses and join us in praying for revival.
Today’s Bible verse for Revival
A Shameless Nation
The Prophet, Zephaniah, urged the nation of Judah to seek the Lord so that they would be “hidden” from his anger. However, the nation, like Israel, turned away from God and chose idolatry instead. They were shameless in their sins that included prostitution and child sacrifice as part of their idol worship. Zephaniah prophesied during the reign of Josiah (640-609 BC), a Judean king who sought to reestablish acceptable worship practices. Israel had already been destroyed and the people sent into exile. Despite having witnessed Israel’s fall, Judah refused to keep its covenant obligations to God.
America has also become a shameless nation by making same-sex marriages legal, legalizing abortion, and moving away from Godly principles in the foundation of its government. It is a prideful nation that believes it does not need God and its leaders continue to move it further away from the Biblical foundation it was built on. However, making sin legal in man’s eyes does not make it legal in God’s eyes. It does not remove one’s guilt and God will hold each person and this nation accountable for its choices, decisions, and actions.
It is time for the Christians in this nation to stop looking the other way. There can be no more complacency. We must gather together and seek the Lord and do his just commands. We must seek righteousness and humility. And we must interceded for out nation for a revival that will turn this nation back to God.
From The Message Bible:
“So get yourselves together. Shape up! You’re a nation without a clue about what it wants. Do it before you’re blown away like leaves in a windstorm, Before God’s Judgment-anger sweeps down on you, Before God’s Judgment Day wrath descends with full force. Seek God, all you quietly disciplined people who live by God’s justice. Seek God’s right ways. Seek a quiet and disciplined life. Perhaps you’ll be hidden on the Day of God’s anger.” — Zephaniah 2:1-3 (MSG)
The Need for Revival
- Christians need to stop being complacent and intercede for out nation.
- We must humbly unite together to seek God, righteousness and humility and live according to God’s standards and be a witness to the world of the gospel.
- If God would chastise his chosen people for rejecting him and living like the rest of the world, why does America think God would not judge us?
Praying for Revival
Father, we acknowledge that our sin has polluted the world you created. We’ve seen your judgement on sin through natural disasters of all kinds and a pandemic that rages still. Father, we fall our our knees before you with repentant hearts. Forgive us of our sin. Give us hearts to seek your face and to pursue righteousness. Give us wisdom and strength to flee evil. God, we ask that you fill us with the Holy Spirit so that the light of Christ shines throughout the world. Give us a zeal and passion to truly know you and experience you in an intimate relationship. God, send a revival in our nation and in our world.
Lord, send a revival and let it begin in me.
