“We have never had any such thing in history as a prayerless revival,” said pastor Greg Laurie in a powerful, encouraging contribution to Faithwire. Pastor Laurie reminds all readers, whether they’re rejoicing or lamenting after this week’s midterm election, that it is people committed to prayer, not elected officials, who can save America.

“We look at the problems in our world and in our nation today, and we might point at different individuals. But let’s notice where God points when a nation breaks down spiritually and morally,” Laurie encourages the reader. He refers to 2 Chronicles 7:14, which says, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land…”

“God is saying, ‘It is my people. If my people would live as they ought to live, it would impact a nation. My people need to humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways,’” Laurie explains.

“We must pray,” he continues, “but there also must be repentance from all known sin. We need to turn from our wicked ways. All the prayer in the world won’t make any difference if we have unconfessed sin in our lives.”

“God promises that if we will pray and turn from our wicked ways and humble ourselves, he will heal us,” Laurie adds. “That applies to a broken family. That applies to a church. And that applies to a nation.” What a promise!

Laurie concludes, telling us that God wants to send revival, but we must participate.

Maintaining a persistent prayer life seems more and more difficult in the hustle and bustle of a busy world.

“Church revitalization will only ever happen in answer to faith-filled, prevailing prayer. It is greatly to the glory of God to revitalize a church of humble, prayerful people. But it is greatly dishonoring to him to suppose this transformation can come about any other way.”

~ Andrew M DavisRevitalize, 94.

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” –Romans 12:2

The nation cannot afford a sidelined church, taken out by worldliness and confusion. The Apostle Paul commands believers to allow ourselves no longer to be conformed by worldly patterns, but rather to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Only then we will understand the will of God, not just for our own lives, but so that we can be a prophetic voice to our nation. Sometimes the best way to pray for our nation is to pray for revival in the church!

Pray for a transformation in the church through a renewing of our minds through the Word of God.

“The coming revival must begin with a great revival of prayer. It is in the closet, with the door shut, that the sound of abundance of rain will first be heard. An increase of secret prayer with ministers will be the sure harbinger of blessing.”

 

“How we have prayed for a Revival – we did not care whether it was old-fashioned or not – what we asked for was that it should be such that would cleanse and revive His children and set them on fire to win others.”

~ Mary Booth

“…there has never been a revival of religion so long as the order of service has been strictly followed.

…we are to be led by the Holy Spirit.” 

“I was enabled to lie at Jesus’ feet and to wash them with the tears of contrition. No pleasure I have ever found in the Christian life is superior to this.”

~ Edward Payson
