Prayer For Revival

revival prayer
Humbly now, O LORD, I pray,
Send Revival here today.
All my coldness, all my sin,
All my doubting deep within;
Cleanse me LORD, wash my sin away;
Oh, send REVIVAL here today.
Humbly, LORD, I ask of Thee,
Send REVIVAL, work through me.
Empty me of self and pride,
In Your Son, I will abide.
Oh merciful God, renew me I pray,
And send REVIVAL here today.
Mrs. Charles Bell

A Prayer For The President

georgewashington-prayingHeavenly Father, You have taught us through Your Apostle to pray for all men everywhere and for our leaders both political and spiritual. We acknowledge our reluctance to pray for a man who disrespects Your word and has contempt for Your people but we confess our sin of prayerlessness may be as grave as his disregard for Your word. We pray for our president, that he could come to a knowledge of truth; that he would understand there is only one God and only one way to YOU and that is the LORD Jesus Christ the only mediator between the finite and the infinite. We pray for You to change his mind, to inspire him to want to preserve our religious freedom so we believers can worship, witness, study, minister and spend our time-serving You and others instead of fighting with the government about our inalienable rights. Father, we know that all believers need to join together in this prayer. Men and women all over America need to lift open hands to You and pray sincerely for the president. We have a tendency to lift up our fist in anger but lifting up open hands in prayer would be better. We know that man’s anger accomplishes very little. It’s Your power and only Your power that can save AMERICA. If America is to be saved, our leaders must change the way they think. Father we invoke Proverbs 21:1,  The Lord can control a king’s mind as he controls a river; he can direct it as he pleases. Please direct our president toward the right and deliver us from evil. At present, we are headed for destruction.  The kingdom belongs to You Father. Our desire is that Your rule come and that You get glory. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
{Prayer based on Paul letter to Timothy….I Timothy 2}

Honor Begets Honored

child-prayer-pdFather, thank You for accepting us into Your family by virtue of the life, death and resurrection of Christ. We pray that You would make us worthy by gracing us to suffer in behalf of Christ and His glorious kingdom. We pray for Your power to enable us to do all the good things that You have put in our hearts to do by increasing our love for Jesus so that we want to do His will more than our own. Father, You are good and kind. Help us honor Christ by being good and kind to others in our words and deeds. If we bring honor to the LORD Jesus, He will bring honor to us when He returns in glory. Nothing is more important to us than to hear Him say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” May the name of Jesus be glorified by the power of His indwelling presence. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!

[Based on Paul’s prayer for the Thessalonians. II Thess. 1:11-12]
