A Prayer for Revival

My heart was moved by this prayer for revival, and I join with a hearty "amen."

Father Almighty,

We trust that you desire to send revival and spiritual awakening to your people. We believe that you can revive and renew us. So we pray…

We pray that a hunger for revival would consume your people.
(Neh. 1:1-11)

We ask that you inspire our pastors with messages that will awaken your people.
(2 Tim. 4:2-5)

We pray that your people will have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
(Rev. 2:7)

Make the Church of today hot.
(Rev. 3:14-16)

We pray that those who have left their “first love” would return.
(Rev. 2:4-5)

We pray that those who have stopped gathering for worship would be convicted with a renewed sense of urgency to gather for worship.
(Heb. 10:25)

We ask you to call out an army of intercessors burdened for revival.
(Isaiah 62:6-7)

We desire to see evangelistic zeal consume your Church.
(James 5:19-20)

We cry out with the psalmist:
Will you not revive us again?That your people may rejoice in you?
(Ps. 85:6)
