A Prayer for Religious Awakening
By Emma Danzey
Ezekiel 37:4-5 says, “Then he stated to me, ‘Prophesy to those bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the phrase of the Lord! That is what the Sovereign Lord says to those bones: I’ll make breath enter you, and you’ll come to life. I’ll connect tendons to you and make flesh stumble upon you and canopy you with pores and skin; I’ll put breath in you, and you’ll come to life. Then you’ll know that I’m the Lord.’”
Religious awakening is one thing that Christians in all places want to see happen. Whether or not this be in our personal neighborhoods or globally, we’re going to ask the Lord to do once more what He did in Ezekiel. For many who don’t have any hope, who’re lifeless of their sins, due to the facility of Jesus, their dry bones can come to life. The breath of God will give them life. They are often reborn due to Christ.
Who have you ever been praying would obtain the present of salvation by means of Jesus? God has not given up on them. In the present day, as we pray for others, might it remind us of the individuals in our lives and round us every day who’re in determined want of our Savior. Might it renew a ardour inside ourselves to be residing life by means of the facility of the Holy Spirit and never in our personal human energy.
Our Highly effective God,
We name on Your identify Jesus right this moment. We ask that You’d transfer boldly and that you’d do a brand new factor within the hearts and lives round us. We pray for religious awakening to happen. As we glance round on the dry bones in our societies and in our cities, we see individuals who don’t know who You’re. We see individuals who have been harm by the sins of others. We see people who find themselves so thirsty for fact.
You say in John 4:14, “However whoever drinks of the water that I’ll give him won’t ever be thirsty once more. The water that I’ll give him will develop into in him a spring of water welling as much as everlasting life.” That is our prayer right this moment that the nations and our cities would drink of the residing water of You, Jesus. That they might be eternally glad in You. We pray that their religious dryness could be revived and refreshed by Who You’re and what You’ve gotten performed on their behalves.
Jesus, we pray for religious awakening inside our personal hearts. Within the locations which we’ve got develop into hardened to You, soften our hearts and open our eyes to You and Your gospel. Communicate to us by means of Your Phrase. Information us by Your Spirit to be ambassadors for You. We pray for inventive methods to share the gospel and for open doorways to like these round us. Maintain us delicate to Your Holy Spirit as we undergo our days, understanding that You’re working in our midst.
Present us Your energy and Your glory. Assist others to see the work of Your hand. Might our messages of the gospel come throughout clearly and fall on open ears. Give those that are spiritually lifeless hope and revive their hearts in You. Assist us as we share and supply alternatives for them to listen to the hope that we’ve got in You. God, we pray that our cities, our states, and our nations would know that You’re the Lord. There’s none like You.
Religious awakening begins with one individual at a time. Remind us of the worth of sharing Your message with one individual. We pray for multiplication, however we pray for people who you have a good time. You inform us in Luke 15:10, “In the identical means, I inform you, there’s rejoicing within the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Please give us the religious perception to see others as You do, not at numbers, however as creations of the Almighty who’re made in His picture. We reward You for the work You’ve gotten already performed and for the work you will have but to do. Thanks for permitting us to be a part of it. Amen.
