40 Prayer Points For Revival
Psalm 85:6-8 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation. I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
Do you desire a groundbreaking revival in your church? Does it seem like the spiritual fire of your ministers are reducing by the day, do the church members now struggle to come to church, does it seem like your church is no longer fulfilling the mandate for its birth, and is sin becoming more rampant amongst your members? If your response to any of these questions is yes, then you need to pray these 40 prayer points for church revival
The word revival simply means a reawakening. In these last days, there is a great need for revival in the churches of God all over the World, because as the Scripture says in 2 Timothy 3, We are in the perilous times, when people have become tired of serving in the church, when many have backslidden, many now see paying tithes and offerings as burden, indeed in these days, the love of God in the heart of many have waxed cold (Matthew 24:12).
There can be no better time to pray for revival rather than now.
You may be wondering if revival is part of God’s intention for the church, the bible admonishes us in Isaiah 57:15 “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabited eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones”
According to this scripture, it is clear that God wants to revive people of the church of God, but as it is written, the church must be of a contrite spirit and of a humble heart, it takes a humble heart to acknowledge that the church needs revival, it takes a humble heart to sincerely long and thirst for revival from the almighty.
The importance of revival in the church cannot be overemphasized because without revival, a church may lose its place in Christ and its relevance on earth. The mandate of Christ for every church is to rule, dominate their environment, deliver people from the powers of darkness (Matthew 16: 19) and most importantly to bring souls into the kingdom of Christ (Colossians 1:13) so that Christ’s death on the cross will not be in vain in the lives of many.
Come to think of it, can an un-revived church fulfill these mandates, can an un-revived church actually deliver people from the powers of darkness? Definitely not!
So how can we be revived as a Church? It is first by recognizing our poor spiritual state (Revelations 3:17), then, we need to genuinely desire revival in the church, lastly we need to bring back the preachings on repentance, holiness, fear of God and genuine love. Asides the study and preaching of God’s Word, we also need to pray fervently for revival.
We must now arise in prayers to ask the Lord for revival, to plead that there should come a time of refreshing from the Lord, that the church may go back to the days where it has been known for holiness, purity, miracles, signs and wonders.
Let’s proceed to the 40 prayer points for revival
