Praying for Revival
New Horizon, 2022

Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus and Holy Spirit. We seek and call upon You for revival. We ask You to bring about a supernatural work in our church, community and region. We pray You’ll make people hungry for God once again, beginning with us. And all for the sake of Your Kingdom.

Draw us, beckon us and speak to us.
Call us by name and convince us of Your love.
Bring down spiritual powers that distract, tempt, numb, confuse and deceive.
Open our hearts and minds to Your Truth, Word and Way.
Convict us of our sin and our need for our Savior.
Eclipse every other longing, desire and pursuit.
Bring back the wanderer, wayward and rebellious.
Reach those who’ve never heard.
Enlighten those who don’t understand.
Save the lost. Heal the broken. Rescue those far away.

Please use our church and our lives as catalysts for renewal, restoration and revival. We’ve heard of Your great works; please do them again in our day. And all for the glory, honor and praise of Jesus Christ, our crucified, Resurrected and returning Lord and King. Amen and amen.

TODAY'S MESSAGE: "Dialing Up the Zeal"

The Story of Elisha from the Book of 1 Kings 19 & ff.

Eagerness. What are you earnest and passionate about? It’s amazing what intensity we can conjure when we’re dialed in. Here’s something worth our best energies…
NOTES FOR TODAY'S MESSAGE:

1. What relationship does Elisha have with Elijah? (1 Kings 19:15)

2. What does Elisha ask of Elijah as Elisha begins his ministry? (2 Kings 2:9)

3. Name some of the evidence of God’s anointing upon Elisha.

4. How does Elisha demonstrate his eagerness to obey and serve God?

5. What does the word “zeal” refer to in the Bible and how is it lived out?

6. How does Elisha’s death bring glory to God? (2 Kings 13:20-21)

REFLECTING & RESPONDING

What motivates you to give your best? What do you give yourself to willingly and eagerly? To what degree is Jesus the target of your energies and pursuit?

Who do you know that demonstrates a “zeal” for God? What is evidence of their zeal? What do you suppose motivates their zeal?

How might you bring God greater glory in your daily living? How might you do so among family & friends, at work and elsewhere? What personal changes do you need to make to bring God greater glory with your life?
