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?
Do not fear
When God appeared to Israel at Mt. Sinai, he came with a loud trumpet blast, with thunder and lightening. The Bible says that even the mountain trembled. The people did not need to be afraid that God would exterminate them but rather this extravagant and frightening display would cause them to recognize God’s power, presence, and holiness. As a result they would be motivated to avoid sin and the consequences of sin when God brought judgement on them.
God has come to test you
These verses come before the Israel talk Aaron into making the golden calf. So despite experiencing God’s presence in such a frightening way, they still make the golden calf. But before we judge Israel, we need to take an honest look at ourselves because we do the same thing. God shows up in our life through an answered prayer or unexpected blessing or we sense his peace in grief and then we turn right around and fall into sin – again.
Revival is needed when a nation falls into sin
Like Israel, we are a nation that has fallen into sin. Gross sins. Numerous sins. Sins that God would call an abomination. Sins that would justifiably bring God’s judgment and perhaps COVID is God’s judgment on a world that has turned their back on Him. In Exodus 23:25, God tells the people that if they serve Him and obey Him, he will take sickness away from them. We need to experience a revival that will turn us back to serving and obeying God. If we pray for God to remove COVID, but we refuse to turn back to Him, then we can’t expect for Him to hear or answer our prayers. Before God removes the sickness, we must experience revival and turn back to Him
The Need for Revival
- Seek forgiveness for sins in your own life.
- Intercede for our nation and ask God to forgive the sins of our nation.
- Ask God to raise up leaders in our nation that fear Him and will lead our nation to serve and obey God.
Praying for Revival
Father, forgive us for the numerous sins in our lives and in our nation. We desperately need you in our nation and our world. Lord, you said in your word that you appoint leaders at appointed times to carry out your plans. We ask that the leaders of our nation would turn their hearts back to you. Give them a desire to serve you and obey you. Give them boldness to remove the abomination sins of our nation and to lead this nation back to you.
Lord, send a revival and let it begin in me.
