Prayer For Church Revival
Heavenly Father, my life is weak and seems to be failing and falling apart and in my heart I know that this is due to a long-term neglect of You and Your ways. Forgive me I pray, and help me to return into true fellowship with You once again.
Lord, I believe that You have stirred in my spirit the need to turn from my worldly ways and to look again to Christ. I believe that You have quickened my spirit to call my heart back to You. Lord, I know that Your Word tells us that Godly sorrow brings repentance and I know that I have strayed far from You, and Lord I truly repent in my heart. I truly desire to turn away from the ways that have entrapped me for so long and to return to You. Thank You that even though I have been faithless, You have remained faithful.
Bring me I pray, to the foot of the cross. I need to hand over the reigns of my life to You. Too long I have tried to do things my way and I realise that only in You is true peace found. But Lord, I know I am weak and do not want to wander away from You again, and so I ask that You would draw me daily, and place in my heart a fervent desire for You, a desire to be in Your Word and a desire to meet with You in prayerful communion. Lord, I confess that without You I can do nothing. Bring me I pray, to such spiritual brokenness that I will never again stray from Your loving arms. In Jesus' name I pray,
Lord, I have seen that so much of Christendom has strayed from the paths of righteousness, that at times I almost feel that there is no one else left that is truly seeking Your face and lifting up the name of the Lord Jesus. And yet, I am reminded that when Elijah felt equally alone and spiritually isolated that You reminded Him that there were seven thousand other faithful believers, who had not compromised their faith nor bowed the knee to Baal.
Lord, forgive me for my critical spirit towards the church of today, knowing that You have many faithful saints, for You are still building Your church today, though often secretly and silently. Thank You for my brothers and sisters around the world who have kept the faith and are looking to Jesus as the author and finisher of their faith, and I pray that You would remind each one of us of the great riches and power we have in Christ and unite in us a desire to tell the good news of the gospel of grace to a lost and dying world.
Birth in each of our hearts a desire to be used by You to bring about a little revival and spiritual awakening in the tiny corner of the world where You have placed us. And build up in each of our hearts a unity in the Spirit of Christ, so that we may be identified as having known Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Father, Let both the church leaders and their members submit to you. Let denominations subject their private doctrines for bible standards; let all churches and brethren join their hands together to promote your righteousness in our lands. Let the church prioritize gospel evangelization, and let them intensely engage in it so that unbelievers throughout the world can have an opportunity to be saved. Please do not let brethren fail you anymore, but let us actively and faithfully serve you so that we can be blessed on earth and in heaven. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make all these requests.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray for fellow Christians and myself that God give us the spirit of love. May the Almighty God empower us to love each other! May the churches put segregation aside to love and serve God with the spirit of unity! May pride, stubbornness, and self-righteous spirits be subdued in Christian fold! May all children of God feel and experience genuine love of God that is beyond human comprehension! May it be well for all believers in Christ today, tomorrow, and forevermore!
O Lord, please wake up the church from its deep sleep! The church has become cold, and brethren have lost their drive to spiritually seek your help for a solution over their problems. Please revive our local churches and denominations again! Enable us to seek your face for guidance and instructions. Let brethren prioritize prayer and holiness to other influences. Let brethren cooperate with you, so that we can experience signs and wonders like the early days church. Uphold our leaders, and rescue them from carnality and selfish interests. Let the church leaders and members prosper on earth, and also fit for your rapture. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
We live in such an age where people wander aimlessly to find something to give them meaning and life. What they seek they do not find, because they are not finding it in the true source of life itself-You. Father, today we come together as true and sincere followers of You to kindly and ardently ask for a revival of souls in this age. Father, You say in Matthew 7 to come and ask You as our Father for what we desire. Lord, we desire for our friends, families, and neighbors to be open and to seek and find the truth of the authentic source of life- You. We invite Your Holy Spirit to pour out onto the people You have made. We invite You to perform miracles, wonders, and to speak to the people You crafted with Your hands. Father, You say in Psalm 139 that You crafted each and every person in the hidden place in the palm of Your hand, and so we pray that truth will be brought to Light in each and every person You have crafted. It is only by Your Spirit that truth can be truly known (John 15:26) and so we implore this day for such revival of spirits, of nations, and of hearts.
In the Name of the Most High we pray,
Heavenly Father, pour out Your Holy Spirit like a mighty flood into the hearts of all Your people, those who are called by Your name. May our hearts be washed by the water of the Word and may the purifying light of the Holy Spirit cleanse the thoughts, wash the hearts and purify the minds of those who are part of the church, which is Your Body.
Lord, we pray that You would purify the hearts and minds of all Your people so that our thoughts are ever turned toward the Lord Jesus. May we as individual members and also as a body of believers, learn to seek Your will in our lives, so that our prayers are filtered through the light of Your will, so that they are tuned into Your perfect plans and purposes. May the desire of all believers be to lift up Your name so that You are honoured in the fellowships and local churches in His rightful position as Head, and may the Lord Jesus remain the central focus of the intent of our hearts
Lord, we pray that You would revive the hearts of all believers and especially those who have left their first love, become involved in a distorted gospel, fallen into legalism or become lukewarm toward You. Draw each one back into a right relationship with You and with each other. Revive Your people we pray, and turn the hearts of all Your people back to Yourself. In Jesus' name,
