We Pollute the World with Sin

A Prayer for Revival

“Spirit of the Living God,
Fall fresh on me.
Spirit of the Living God,
Fall fresh on me.
.     Break me;
.     melt me;
 .    mold me;
.     fill me.
Spirit of the Living God,
Fall fresh on me.”
                                                          Popular Chorus by
                                                          Dan Iverson

“Lord, that is Your process. We need to be broken down,
melted and remolded by You
so that You can fill us with Yourself.
And Lord that is what we need–-to be filled with You
because we have demonstrated over and over
that when we are filled with our own ideas we destroy ourselves
And the world around us.
The apostle told us centuries ago: 

      “Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality,
      impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits
      of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness,
      orgies, and things like these.”

Lord, we are filling up the world with these things.
Forgive us for the dirt of our choices.
Change us, O God.
Draw us to Yourself.
Make us see our sin
so that we would turn to You for Your abundant mercy.
In the matchless name of Christ we ask it.”

Cf. Galatians 5:19-21
