My dear sisters, I want to give you some personal observations as to praying for revival. Again, I see this as God’s hand directing. Since I started preparing and writing this blog, God has brought to my attention so much material on revival. Now, I understand it’s very much like getting a car, a different model than you’ve had before that you’ve never notice, but now you see them everywhere. So, now I see information on Revival “everywhere”. God has placed before me so much that I don’t know what to share with you at times. I try to keep these brief because we’re here to pray, seeking God’s honor and glory in all things, so for today we’ll look again to God’s word for directions.
I purpose meditation on Psalm 85 for this week’s Prayer for Revival:
Psalm 85:1 “Yahweh, you have showed favor to your land;
you have restored the well-being of Jacob.
2 You have forgiven the sin of your people;
you have covered all their sin. Selah
3 You have withdrawn all your wrath;
you have turned back from your hot anger.
4 Restore us, God of our salvation,
and let go of your displeasure with us.
5 Will you be angry with us forever?
Will you remain angry throughout future generations?
6 Will you not revive us again?
Then your people will rejoice in you.
7 Show us your covenant faithfulness, Yahweh,
grant us your salvation.
8 I will listen to what Yahweh God says,
for he will make peace with his people, his faithful followers.
Yet they must not turn again to foolish ways.
9 Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him;
then glory will remain in our land.
10 Covenant faithfulness and trustworthiness have met together;
righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Trustworthiness will sprout up from the ground,
and victory will look down from the sky.
12 Yes, Yahweh will give his good blessings,
and our land will yield its crops.
13 Righteousness will go before him
and make a way for his footsteps.” ULB-EN
Seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance as you read and meditate on this Psalm. It is rich with hope and God’s forgiveness. He has restored in the past; He can again.
