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
Israel and Judah chose idolatry over the God who brought them out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. Despite the many miraculous things God had done for them, they wanted to be like the rest of the world. The nations around them had kings, so they wanted a king. God’s plan for them was that He would be their king – their leader and their God. The nations around them had idols they worshiped, and so they adopted their paganist gods as their own and rejected the one true God and the covenant they had made with God. Regardless of how many prophets God sent to warn them of his coming judgement and called the people to repentance, verse 5 of Zachariah 1 tells us that Israel and Judah ignored everything God said to them and that they stubbornly refused to listen.
As a nation, America has rejected God, too. As a result the morals and values of our nation are falling away. Crime is higher than ever. We have gone from “One nation under God” to “its all about me.” As other countries legalize same-sex marriages, so did we. Little by little over the years, Satan has been at work stripping away our Christian culture and name. And like Israel and Judah, we look at the other nations and want to be like them. Will we be like Israel and Judah and ignore everything God has said to us through His word? Will we stubbornly refuse to listen?
From The Message Bible:
“Come back to me and I’ll come back to you. Don’t be like your parents. The old-time prophets called out to them, “A Message from God-of-the-Angel-Armies: Leave your evil life. Quit your evil practices.” But they ignored everything I said to them, stubbornly refused to listen.” — Zachariah 1:2-4 (MSG)
The Need for Revival
- America needs to stop looking at the world around us and look up to the God who has blessed this nation and made it great. Otherwise, we can expect for God to remove his blessings from us.
- We need to come back to God and return the Biblical foundations our nation was founded on, then God will come back to us.
- We need to make God the Lord over our nation and allow Him to lead and guide us. We need Godly men and women in our government structure who will seek God over fame, fortune, and title.
Praying for Revival
Father, we acknowledge to you today that we – your people – have allowed the slipping away of your values and teachings. We have not done our part in seeking your face, especially before going to the voting polls. Our government officials, voted into office by the people, do not stand up for your ways and lead our nation farther away from you as the years go by. As a result, things you call “an abomination” have been legalized and government leaders are stamping out your Name in this nation. So today we pray for a revival within our government structure. That these leaders will seek you with all their heart, mind, and soul and that they would return to you. We also ask that the hearts of this nation would seek you and return to you. That evil would be put away and that your holiness and righteousness would reign in this nation.
Lord, send a revival and let it begin in me.
