If Revival is the Need, Prayer is the Means

A Mid-Day Prayer for Revival

“Make us feel again O God.
Make us to know our need.
Make us hate sin.
Make us love righteousness.
Make us hate the corruption in our own hearts.
Make us a people who see our sin before the sin of anyone else.
Make us a people who own our wickedness—
      who are repulsed by our stain,
      who are willing to cry out in lament over our shame,
      who will truly long to be the peacemakers You call us to be.
Make us mercy givers.
Make us grace extenders.
Make us poor in spirit.
Make us pure in heart.
Make us willing to endure persecution and hatred
for You and Your Kingdom
Rule and over rule everything in us 
that is raised up against a willingness to do Your will,
so that we will be to the praise of Your glory.

Matthew 5:1-12; Ephesians 1:12, 14
