Day 18 - Pray for a Great Awakening
Minister Anita Davis
WORD OF FAITH SOUTHFIELD, MI
Welcome to 30 days of prayer. Today we are praying for a great awakening. And I hope you know and realize that your city, your nation, the whole world needs to wake up - wake up to God, His Word and the Savior He has given all of us - that is Jesus Christ. I think you see that the fabric of our society is decaying all around us. It doesn’t matter what nation you are from, what city you are in, if you know the Word of God, you know that this world is going away from it. But there is something we can do about it. And that thing is - we don’t just need the church to stand up, we need the church to increase. We need it to multiply. We need it to be where there’s this huge army just going forth and fighting for the kingdom of God. So there are some things that we need - for the church to stand up and for it to increase, right? So let’s pray about those two things.
I want to read Acts chapter 4, verse 29, “And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” One of the first things we want to do is we want to pray that the church gets bold - gets bold about witnessing and preaching the Word of God. And I don’t want you to just think about the church at large; I want you to think about what you can do because if you get involved in witnessing and being bold and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, putting forth your hand to heal, this is what is going to happen.
I’m going to go over to Acts chapter 9, verse 31 – it says, “Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.” And right there that multiply talks about continue to increase and multiply. One of the things that had to happen for the Word of God to increase and multiply is people’s hearts being softened.
So pray - pray that you get bold about Jesus, bold about sharing His Word and pray that everyone that you talk to has a sensitive heart and is ready to receive the truth of the Word of God. Let’s pray.
