It’s Freedom Friday! America is in great need of Revival and Spiritual Awakening. In order for this to happen, we need united prayer among believers and preachers who will preach the revival message. What is that revival message? It is described well I the book of Acts. When Paul was witnessing to Felix, he reasoned with him about righteousness, self-control and judgment to come.
“And after some days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was Jewish, he sent for Paul and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. 25 Now as he reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and answered, “Go away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call for you” Acts 24:24-25 (NKJV).
We need preachers who will use the law to break up the fallow ground of the sinners hearts and to preach of judgment to come. If we take the sting out of the gospel message, then we are fighting with a dull sword.
“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” Hebrews 4:12 (NASB).
Our sword of the Spirit is only sharp when it is used correctly and in it’s entirety.
Prayer for America
Lord, please forgive us because we have wandered far from Your ways in America. Our leaders can be bought with a bribe, we commit sexual sins in our nation with no shame, we murder unborn babies, we have removed prayer from our schools, we legalize addictive drugs and the list goes on and on. Please have mercy on our nation, because we deserve judgment. It is only because you are a God who is slow to anger, merciful and compassionate, that we are still prospering as well as we are. We deserve shame of face, but we are too proud to admit our sins. We call evil good and good evil and yet you still allow us to exist as a nation. Thank you for your mercy. We pray that you will send Revival and Spiritual Awakening to our nation, not because we deserve it, but because we are begging for mercy. The church in America is not prepared for suffering and we are not ready for Christ’s return. Please purify Your church and revive our sleeping spirits. Send us evangelists and pastors who are not afraid to preach the Word. Make them as bold as lions and be able to stand against harsh rebuke from the unbelievers and even the church. Please revive us again that Your church may rejoice in you. Send revival to the Millennial Generation and forgive the other generations for not being good roll models for them. We pray that You will raise up strong prayer warriors who will humble themselves, pray, seek Your face and turn from their wicked ways. We can only have revival if you send it, because many people in the church are asleep. Please awaken them before it is too late. Have mercy on America. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
