A prayer for revival is a desperate prayer. It is a passionate prayer. It is a prayer from the very heart of who we are and desire to be. It is a prayer for God to speak! It is a prayer for God to shake up us, His people, the church, and get our attention!
Praying for revival is not praying for God to show up…He is already here. It is not praying for God to work…He is already working. It is praying for God to intervene in a way that is “over and above”…a way that can only be attributed to His mighty hand.
When we pray for God to bring revival to our churches, our communities and our country we are praying for something that ONLY God can do. He is our only hope! This should fill our prayer with passion, focus and a spirit of desperation. “O Lord Jesus, only you can do this!”
