How to Pray for Spiritual Awakening
One person can make a difference! Are you willing to be still before God long enough and often enough for Him to search your heart, for you to experience genuine repentance and revival? If so, you can be the ONE God uses to bring spiritual awakening in our day.
Read 2 Chronicles 16:9. God is looking for one whose heart is completely His.
Will you be the one?
Following are some suggestions to get you started as you seek to repent and be clean and useable by God for His glory.
Ask the Lord to search your heart for unknown and unconfessed sin (Psalm 19:12, 139:23-24; Matthew 26:24) Ask God to bring you to a point of genuine repentance (Psalm 51; Isaiah 1:15-19; Matthew 4:17) Ask God to give you clean hands and a pure heart. (Psalm 24:3-4; 51:10, 12; Jeremiah 17:7-8, 29:12-13; 1 John 1:8-9)
Pray for the Lord to restore His joy in your heart through personal renewal and revival (Psalm 1:1-3, 5:3, 8, 11:7, 15, 32:1-2, 51:12-13; Matthew 6:33) Pray that through personal repentance you will be revived and refreshed in God’s Holy presence and that you will be equipped for every good work. (Acts 3:19; Ephesians 2:10; 1 Thessalonians 5:21-24; Hebrews 4:14-16) Pray for God to breathe a fresh breath of His Spirit into your life and witness (Ezekiel 37:11-14; Acts 1:8, 2:46-47; 2 Corinthians 2:14-17)
