A Renewed Challenge to Pray for America: Praying for God to Revive this Nation

Do you long for revival? As we close out this month of prayer for our nation, use these prayers as a jumpstart to your time of intercession. May God hear the prayers of His people and revive us again!

Pray for another Great Awakening to sweep the nation as the Lord’s people learn to humble themselves with a contrite spirit, and to tremble at the Word of the Lord. “‘Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?’ declares the Lord. ‘These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word'” (Isa. 66:2).

  • Ask the Lord to bring revival to the Church in America.
    • “Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you! As when fire sets twigs ablaze and causes water to boil, come down to make your name known to your enemies and cause the nations to quake before you! For when you did awesome things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled before you. Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him” (Isa. 64:1–4).
    • Pray for the preachers of America to fearlessly proclaim the Word of God regarding sin and God’s love. “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8).
    • “In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear” (2 Tim. 4:1–3).

Prayer Points

Praise “God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.” Thank him for being your Father through Christ Jesus. Confess tendencies to act like a spiritual orphan. Commit yourself to more consistently remembering the responsibilities and privileges of being God’s child. Ask him to help you bring honor to the family name.

Pray that your local congregation will bring pleasure to the Father through its weekly worship times. Ask God to help all members and regular attendees act with true family love toward one another.
