Scripture for Reflection and Preparation
John 1:1, 3 (Creating God) “1 in the beginning was the Word; and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 3 all things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created.”
Romans 3:23-25 (Holy God) “23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. 24 They are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Him as a propitiation through faith in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His restraint God passed over the sins previously committed.”
Isaiah 53:5-6 (Loving God) “5 But He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds. 6 We all went astray like sheep; we all have turned to our own way; and the lord has punished Him for the iniquity of us all.”
prayer for Church revival
Revival Rooted in God
Revival begins when God’s people turn back to God.
Ask God to...
• Choose to send revival at this time
• Help Christians regain their understanding of His holiness
• Convict Christians that they are to be completely dependent on Him
• Restore in Christians an understanding of the destructive power of sin
• Remind Christians of His great love for them
• Remind Christians of His great sacrifice on their behalf through Jesus
• Raise up Spirit-filled leaders to call the church to holiness
