Oh, Lord, this world that you have created is in trouble. The people you have created have turned from you and walked away from your face. We have committed every type of sin the imagination can come up with. The stink of our sins no doubt have risen as high as heaven and must assail you day and night. We no longer call good things good, but we call evil things good and good things evil. We have forsaken our position as caretakers of your creation and brought destruction upon everything that we touch. We no longer feel a need to keep your laws and are working diligently to erase any evidence of your ever having had a part in making the laws that mankind was to live by.
We have little care of our children's safety, security and purity, Father. We have killed them mercilessly. We pass them off to people we have no knowledge of to teach them and care for them.
There is little compassion on this earth for those who are downtrodden, poor, disabled, without physical beauty, and who don't meet mankinds' standards for what is acceptable physically, mentally and emotionally.
People idolize money and things and spend all their lives trying to acquire more of each. They spend little time reading your instruction manual for life, meditating on it, talking to you; let alone praising you, thanking you and allowing you to direct their lives.
We hate our brothers and sisters and engage in hateful activities and mean gossip and backstabbing. There are many wars going on all over the world and men are devising horrible ways to torture, maim and kill each other. There are awful, destructive bombs just waiting to be set off to kill millions.
God, our food is untrustworthy now due to men thinking they know better than you how it should be and using science to re-create what you, the Perfect Creator, made for us in the beginning.
Our families are falling apart more now than they are staying together, Lord. Instead of mothers and fathers raising their children, we now have single moms, single dads, two moms, two dads and many other family configurations that you, in your wisdom, did not see as being the best for mankind when you put the systems into place.
Purity is as rare as an albino tiger, Father. It is "the norm" to be intimate with men and woman a person has known for only hours. There is no desire to have one husband, one wife for life these days.
Lust is promoted everywhere all the time, and it doesn't matter what a person is lusting after, we're told we're worth it, so we should have it.
We have lost our ability to wait on anything. We are an impatient lot, and we don't mind telling you so. As a matter of fact, Father, we're quite proud of our ability to speak our minds and that we have opinions and wants and we don't care who knows it. We are bombarded by people telling us that our self-esteem is vital to our well being. It's not okay to be humble or to think that we're really not "all that". We'd be looked down upon for that, Lord.
How much more do I say here, Father? You know it all. You know our sin. You know our rebellion against you. Against you alone have we sinned, Father God. Forgive us, Lord!
Have mercy upon us, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out our transgressions. (Psalm 51:1)
Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? (Psalm 85:6)
Send your mighty wind, Oh, Lord
Do these words ring true to your heart? Are you aching over the sin that is so prevalent in the world and in your life today? Do you long to see the hand of God working in the world and in the lives of people you know? Are you hungering and thirsting for a fresh outpouring of God's holy spirit in you? Then join me in praying for God to move across the United States and ultimately the world in a fresh outpouring of His spirit. Join me in praying for men and women everywhere to repent of their sins. Join me in praying that people everywhere will come to know the Yahweh, God of the Ages, Creator, and Redeemer of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and The One who sent His one and only begotten son, Yeshua, the Christ, who gave His life for the redemption of men and women and to restore our broken relationship with God Almighty.
Can we covenant to pray for this for the next 30 days? Watch the following video about the Revival of 1949-1952, known as the Hebridean Revival:
The Hebridean Revival
You can read more about this revival HERE, and HERE.
All that we know and are familiar with is falling apart here in America and across the world. It is only the hand of God, working amongst us and within us that will bring us true change that we can live with. I pray that you will be moved to begin praying for God to revive us again.
