A Prayer Seeking Personal Revival

Hosea 2:14-18

Most of us would agree our nation needs awakening and our church needs revival.  I believe the Holy Spirit is gazing upon each one of us.  He’s looking to see if we will allow Him to start that revival within us. Rather than looking for this revival to arrive from outside of ourselves, why don’t we start building the altar within our own heart?  If this is your desire, then pray this prayer with me.

Prayer

Lord, woo my heart. Draw me to You.  Speak to me. Return Your blessing to me. Resurrect my heart; like when I first fell in love with You. Restore my youthful zeal. I return to You my first love!  I don’t want to respond to You in positional duty, but in relational love. I commit my words to You. Cleanse my mouth of words dominated by sin and mental idols. Remove all demon-talk from my lips.  Thank You for Your covenant of peace.  Your grace removes striving, arguing, and strife from my life. I receive Your peace.  May this be done in the power of Your name!

Hosea 2:14-18

“Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards,and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.
There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt. “In that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master.’ I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips; no longer will their names be invoked. In that day I will make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky and the creatures that move along the ground. Bow and sword and battle I will abolish from the land,so that all may lie down in safety.

A Prayer For Holiness

Hosea 2:3-13

In this toxic world, we need holiness like never before.  Join with me as we cry out to God for purity, holiness and godliness.

Prayer

Strip me before You. Strip me of my pride, self-reliance, self-rule, and sin seeking.  Make me thirsty for You. Just as a desert is thirsty for water, make my heart, mind, soul, spirit and will thirsty for Your Spirit.  Please don’t prosper the fruits of idolatry in my life.  The things born of sin. Block the pathways to sin and idolatry. Hedge me in with thorn bushes. Keep me close to You.  Though I chase after sin don’t allow me to catch it. May sin stay out of my reach.  Create in me the desire to always return to You.  Remind me of Your benefits. Your spiritual and physical nourishment that You continually lavish on me.  Any blessing from You I have leveraged for sin take it away, then please return it as I acknowledge you.

Hosea 2:3-13

Otherwise I will strip her naked and make her as bare as on the day she was born; I will make her like a desert, turn her into a parched land, and slay her with thirst. I will not show my love to her children, because they are the children of adultery. Their mother has been unfaithful and has conceived them in disgrace. She said, ‘I will go after my lovers, who give me my food and my water, my wool and my linen, my olive oil and my drink.’ Therefore I will block her path with thornbushes; I will wall her in so that she cannot find her way. She will chase after her lovers but not catch them; she will look for them but not find them.
Then she will say, ‘I will go back to my husband as at first, for then I was better off than now.’ She has not acknowledged that I was the one who gave her the grain, the new wine and oil,
who lavished on her the silver and gold—which they used for Baal. “Therefore I will take away my grain when it ripens, and my new wine when it is ready. I will take back my wool and my linen, intended to cover her naked body. So now I will expose her lewdness before the eyes of her lovers; no one will take her out of my hands.I will stop all her celebrations: her yearly festivals, her New Moons, her Sabbath days—all her appointed festivals. I will ruin her vines and her fig trees, which she said were her pay from her lovers;I will make them a thicket, and wild animals will devour them.I will punish her for the days she burned incense to the Baals; she decked herself with rings and jewelry, and went after her lovers,but me she forgot,” declares the Lord.

“God Still Loves His Backslidden Children” Praying Through the Book of Hosea

Hosea 1:1-2:1

We desperately need revival in America and around the world. According to the scriptures, before revival comes we must humble ourselves, pray, seek his face and repent (2 Chronicles 7:14). Before corporate revival comes to the church and then spreads to the nations, there must first be massive numbers of people experiencing individual revival. Personal revival must spread exponentially.

This means intentional cultivation of humility, intercession, intimacy and repentance in our lives and church must become the focal point if we expect real revival to visit us and our land. If repentance that brings revival is our goal, then there is no better place to start than the book of Hosea. Hosea calls God’s backslidden people to return to the Lord. Why don’t you join me on a prayer journey through God’s book written to his backslidden children.  Let’s start with this prayer of confession and repentance.

Prayer

Father, forgive me for being an adulterous wife to You.  Forgive my unfaithfulness.  Make me faithful to You.  Lord redeem my legacy and my offspring.  Lord, don’t discipline me for my sin and don’t punish my nation for it’s sin.  We are bloody with violence and aggression.  Forgive us and show us love.  Save us not by our strength, but by Your strength.  I want to be a part of Your people.  Bind me in close to You.  Draw my family, friends, neighborhoods, communities, states, provinces and nations close to You.  You deserve a people.  Make us Your people. Make us like the sand on the sea shore.  Make us Your great nation. Let us act like what we are – Your children.  Unite us!  Heal our divides!  May we rise up in the land and may we love one another. May it be done in Jesus name!

Hosea 1:1-2:1

The word of the Lord that came to Hosea son of Beeri during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and during the reign of Jeroboam son of Jehoas king of Israel:Say of your brothers, ‘My people,’ and of your sisters, ‘My loved one.’ When the Lord began to speak through Hosea, the Lord said to him, “Go, marry a promiscuous woman and have children with her, for like an adulterous wife this land is guilty of unfaithfulness to the Lord.” So he married Gomer daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.

Then the Lord said to Hosea, “Call him Jezreel, because I will soon punish the house of Jehu for the massacre at Jezreel, and I will put an end to the kingdom of Israel. In that day I will break Israel’s bow in the Valley of Jezreel.”

Gomer conceived again and gave birth to a daughter. Then the Lord said to Hosea, “Call her Lo-Ruhamah (which means “not loved”), for I will no longer show love to Israel, that I should at all forgive them. Yet I will show love to Judah; and I will save them—not by bow, sword or battle, or by horses and horsemen, but I, the Lord their God, will save them.”

After she had weaned Lo-Ruhamah, Gomer had another son. Then the Lordsaid, “Call him Lo-Ammi (which means “not my people”), for you are not my people, and I am not your God.

10 “Yet the Israelites will be like the sand on the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. In the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called ‘children of the living God.’ 11 The people of Judah and the people of Israel will come together; they will appoint one leader and will come up out of the land, for great will be the day of Jezreel.

A Prayer Against Hurricane Irma and Other Storms in the Atlantic

 

I don’t know about you, but I serve a God that parts seas, calms storms and walks on water. This hurricane is nothing for my God. Why don’t you join with me in prayer and faith as we pray and speak against this hurricane. Nothing is impossible if we believe! Believe and agree with me and let’s stand and watch God move!  Let’s pray this prayer together!

Father, Your the God that parts seas and stills storms. You’re the creator of all things and nothing is too hard for You.  You’ve given authority and dominion to us, and we stand in that authority. (Matthew 28:18-19).  Through the name of Jesus, from whom our authority is derived, we tell Hurricane Irma to go back out into the sea. We declare this hurricane is losing its power. It’s heat and energy are being scattered. In the name of Jesus we strike down every demonic and natural force that’s driving this storm towards us.  She’ll not make war against our nation, economy or homes.  She will not kill, steal or destroy (John 10:10). I pray this will be the most underwhelming news story in media history. I declare nothing will come of this. No lives will be lost.  No homes will be destroyed.  Your kindness is bringing our nation to repentance (Romans 2:4). Everyone will make the connection between the death of this hurricane and Your miraculous hand. Your obvious intervention will be recognized, and Your fame will spread from coast to coast. Your name is being glorified as Your church is rising up in her authority.  We tell the storm to be still and settle in peace. We not only pray this for Hurricane Irma, but also Hurricane Kaita and Jose.  We speak this in the name of Jesus and for the glory of Jesus.

A Prayer Rejecting a Self-Focused Life

Jonah 4:5-10

In the busyness of life the sad state of the lost often tumbles to the back of my mind.  Unfortunately, I sometimes have a cynical attitude toward those without Christ- either viewing them as a lost cause or even as the enemy, but this is not in line with the heart of Christ. I am sad to say that there have been moments when I could see myself reflected in the pages of the book of Jonah. Let’s go before Christ believing that He will deliver us from the disdain of Jonah.

Prayer

Father, so many times I am more concerned about my own comfort than the state of the people who don’t know You.  You are faithful to attempt to teach me compassion, but I am often like Jonah- unwilling to learn from Your voice and from the prompting of Your Spirit.  Make me malleable in Your hands, help me to get my focus off of myself and place the eyes of my heart on the people who need You.  Help me to learn from Jonah.  I can’t condemn him because I am so much like him, but with the help of Your Spirit, I believe I can be an effective evangelist just like Jonah. I believe I can develop in me the heart You were attempting to work in him in Jesus name, my sanctifier.

Jonah 4:5-10

Jonah had gone out and sat down at a place east of the city. There he made himself a shelter, sat in its shade and waited to see what would happen to the city. Then the Lord God provided a leafy plant and made it grow up over Jonah to give shade for his head to ease his discomfort, and Jonah was very happy about the plant.  But at dawn the next day God provided a worm, which chewed the plant so that it withered. When the sun rose, God provided a scorching east wind, and the sun blazed on Jonah’s head so that he grew faint. He wanted to die,and said, “It would be better for me to die than to live.” But God said to Jonah, “Is it right for you to be angry about the plant?” “It is,” he said. “And I’m so angry I wish I were dead.” But the Lord said, “You have been concerned about this plant, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight.  And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left—and also many animals?”

A Prayer to Love the People We Serve

Jonah 4:1-4

If you’ve ever served people in obedience to the Lord, then you understand there’s an ebb and flow to the love of God that we feel for the people as we serve.  Sometimes serving is our greatest joy and at other times it’s a labor of love at best.  As we serve, there’s a danger zone we must learn to guard against.  The danger is this. We can love God and develop a disdain for people. Jonah, through God’s coercion, found himself obeying the command of the Lord with his actions but not with his heart. This is unacceptable to the Lord.  The Lord expects us to obey as his command to serve others with an attitude that is saturated in his love.  If we ever find ourself in a place mentally, emotionally and spiritually where we love God and dislike people, then we must repent.  Let’s pray this prayer to stir up our love for other people.

Prayer

Father, as I serve You never let me lose my heart for people.  Jonah was one of the most powerful evangelists in the Bible, but he didn’t have a love for the people You loved.  Lord, I tremble at Your word.  Give me Your heart of love and compassion for the people You love.  If these people are my enemies, then let me love them like Jesus loved his enemies.  Fill me with Your love in Jesus name, amen.

Jonah 4:1-4

But to Jonah this seemed very wrong, and he became angry.  He prayed to the Lord, “Isn’t this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity. Now, Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live.” But the Lord replied, “Is it right for you to be angry?”

A Prayer of Intercession for the Great Cities of the World

Jonah 3:5-10

According to the United Nations, 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, and by 2050 it’s expected that two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities. To read more about this, then click here.

This is an incredible opportunity for the church.  We need to pray that God will rock the major cities of the world.  An outpouring of the Holy Spirit that touches a major world city can change the course of history. Jonah, with all his sin and rebelliousness, is one of the few people in the Bible that saw an entire city shaken by the power of repentance.  If God did it then, he can do it now.  Join me as we pray for the major cities of the world.

Prayer

Father, Nineveh proves that citywide awakening is possible.  So Father I intercede for the great cities of the world.  I pray You will send them prophets and evangelists that are as effective as Jonah.  Prepare the cities of the world to turn to You in repentance, fasting and seek Your face.  Father, spread the fame of Jesus around the world and may the banner of Jesus be lifted above all the major cities of the world.  May these cities be the center of righteousness for their nations.  Lord, as the majority of the world’s populations now live in cities (United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, World Urbanization Prospects, the 2014 Revision), this gives us the opportunity for revival to spread faster around the world.  So set the cites of the the world ablaze for you, in Jesus name.  (You may want to pick out some of the major cites of the world and pray over them specifically.).

Jonah 3:5-10

The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.” When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened.

A Prayer for a Willing Spirit and an Eagerness to Obey

Jonah 3:1-4

Prayers don’t have to be long to be effective.  If you pray this prayer, inspired by Jonah’s willingness to obey, consistently, then it will change your life.

Prayer

Father, help me to learn the lessons You teach me just like Jonah learned his.  I desire to be willing to obey, and eager to do what You are saying.  Give me a willing spirit in Jesus name.

Jonah 3:1-4

Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.” Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.”
