DAY 21 - Pray For a Great Awakening
Pastor Derrick Greene
Word of Faith Southfield, MI
Hello my brothers and sisters. Welcome to our 30 days of prayer and of course, I get the honor and privilege to discuss today’s subject which is the great awakening. Over in Romans chapter 4, verse 17, it says, “even God, who quickeneth the dead,” and of course, that word ‘quickeneth’ is another word of awakening, being made alive, or being energized in the faith of God. And God, “calleth those things which be not as though they were.” God expects us, being His sons and daughters in the earth, to speak the Word and believe the Word just like He does. When we pray and release the power of God, it causes the people in the earth, particularly the sinners and backsliders, to come alive, to be wakened up out of their sinful sleep so they can come to the knowledge of God’s Word. Then, of course, over and James we find that Elisha, he prayed that it did not rain. Then 3 ½ years later he prayed that it rain again. That just lets us know how much power we have when we pray. When we speak the Word of God, it causes the energy to be released in the earth and that’s why we are praying for the awakening. Then over in Acts chapter 4, Peter and John were persecuted for standing on the Word of God. But we don’t have to be afraid. God has our back. God is our rearguard. What we have to do is say the Word of God with confidence, with assurance, that what we release in the earth, particularly praying for that awakening, is going to take place just as we pray it because God hears and answers prayers. Then, particularly, over in Proverbs chapter 14, it speaks about righteousness exalts a nation. So when we pray for that awakening and people coming into the knowledge of God, then life will be as God has it here in the earth. Then we will be able to experience the blessings of the Lord. So in conclusion, know that every time you pray, God is hearing you, God is answering you. So be faithful, be consistent in speaking the Word of God and watch God do what He desires to do. God bless you. See you tomorrow for our next day of prayer. Love you, love you.
