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?
In Exodus 6, God renews his covenant with Moses. At this point, Moses has gone to Pharaoh, asked for the people to be released, Pharaoh said no, and then increased the workload on the Israelites. The people being to complain about Moses and so Moses prays. At the end of chapter 5, we find his prayer. Verses 22-23 say, “Moses went back to God and said, “My Master, why are you treating this people so badly? And why did you ever send me? From the moment I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, things have only gotten worse for this people. And rescue? Does this look like rescue to you?” Moses did what God told him to do, so why did things get worse? Why did Pharaoh not let the people go? Isn’t it supposed to work out good when God tells us to do something?
We, like Moses, can get discouraged when we feel like God’s told us to do something and it isn’t turning out the way we thought it would. Maybe life gets harder – just like for Israel. Maybe things just haven’t happened as quickly as we thought they would.
The truth is, when we do what God wants us to do, Satan will do everything he can to try to stop God’s plan. But we know that God is greater than anything Satan can do. One of the ways Satan tries to thwart God’s plans is by getting us discouraged with unexpected results. More Christians give up and stop praying simply because of being discouraged. Instead, take your discouragement to God and allow him to renew His plans and will to you, to re-energize you.
The Need for Revival
- Have you been praying for revival, but discouraged because we’ve not seen it yet? Ask God to give you eyes to see where He is at work to bring revival to our nation.
- For our nation to “wake up,” things might have to get worse before they get better. Ask God to give you strength to get through the trials and to continue to be light and salt in the world.
Praying for Revival
Father, we long to see you move and work in our nation, quickly and mightily. But we’ve turned so far away from you that things might have to get worse before hearts will turn back to you. Help us to not grow weary in praying for revival. Bring us out from under the darkness of sin that is so prevalent in our nation. Rescue us from the grips of sin and Satan. Redeem us, we pray. Intervene with great acts of revival. Take us as your own people. Be our God. We acknowledge that you are Jehovah, Yahweh, God Almighty, the great I AM. We, your people, surrender our hearts and will to you. And we seek your face and we turn from our wicked ways. Now, oh Lord, we ask that you hear us from heaven, forgive our sin, and heal our land.
Lord, send a revival and let it begin in me.
What’s the impossible in your life? In Matthew 19:26, Jesus said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” When you reach the point of impossible – that’s where God starts.
