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.
