Day 16: Revival

Make it your goal and your mission in life to stand in the gap for those that don’t know Jesus.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV

Now more than ever, there is a desperate need in our nation for revival–we’re politically, religiously, morally divided; the current generation is falling away from the Church and God. We need revival. The good thing is, though, that we have the promise in 2 Chronicles that if we will respond properly to God, He will respond faithfully as He promises. During our time of Fasting, we’re humbling ourselves, praying and seeking His face, and turning from the flesh. God said that He will “hear from heaven, and will forgive” our sin and “heal our land.”

Hold fast to this promise that God has not forgotten you; He hears your prayers and your cries for revival in this nation. If you’re not already praying for revival, add it to the list these last 5 days of the Fast. Declare that revival is coming to America and stand on the promise of God’s Word in 2 Chronicles. There is a lost and dying generation out there waiting for us to cry out on their behalf; make it your goal and your mission in life to stand in the gap for those that don’t know Jesus. Make it a daily task to pray for them, not only during the Fast, but going forward in 2019. Make this a year of REVIVAL!

Prayer for the Day:

Father, I come to You today once again to lift up this nation, offering prayer and supplication. Once again, I ask You, Lord for Your will to be done in this nation and around the world. I plead the Blood of Jesus over all nations! In Jesus’ Mighty Name, I stand against all the weapons of the enemy, the plans and strategies of terrorism against our nations. I ask for a covering over our military and our representatives. I plead the Blood of Jesus and release the angels of the Lord around their paths. Guard our borders, Lord. Touch our leaders. I ask you, O God, to visit them and give them dreams and visions that stir their hearts toward You as never before. I pray for those in the inner circle of power that You would turn their hearts to walk in Your wisdom. I ask for Your mercy on us! Forgive us for we have sinned against You as a nation. We need a sword, Lord, to cut through the lies that have told by the world about things that you have declared unholy! God, let the fire burn in the churches, and in our lives until we get a sword in our hands! Purge us, cleanse us; heal our lands we pray in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the strong and mighty One! The One mighty in battle! Jesus, we worship You. Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon our nations. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
