2 Corinthians 7:10 (ESV)  10 For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.

Do you need prayer revival? If you’re not sure, this could be the reason you are not experiencing a closeness with God and the blessings that belong to you as a Christian.  We need to pray for revival over our churches, communities, nations and families, but when Christians don’t take the time to pray, they need to pray for revival in their lives.

Rather than praying for revival for others, make a commitment today to pray for revival in your life if you’re not experiencing Christian growth.  Pray by worshiping God, rejoicing or spending time talking with God to get to know Him.  Build your prayer life, and you’ll build your faith for praying revival over others.

You’ll be ready to pray for revival over pastors and spiritual leaders for revival in their ministries and for spiritual awakening.  Pray for the lost and the broken-hearted.  There is much to pray over for revival, but first you have to be at a place of consistent prayer practices in your life.

Check Your Spiritual Life

A clear indication of whether your spiritual life is growing or declining is prayer. And if your prayer life is declining, it is a sure sign your spiritual life is in need of revival.

Here is what Psalm 80:18 says about revival:  “Then we will not turn back from You; revive us, and we will call upon Your name.

Prayer is to the spiritual life what breathing is to the physical life. If your breathing is shallow and intermittent, something is wrong. It is a sign that there is a lack of health. If your breathing is deep and regular, it is a sign of health.

If you rarely pray and your prayer is shallow (just about yourself) there’s no need to feel badly or be upset. Get a prayer revival going in your life and you soon see big changes that will help you accomplish your spiritual and physical goals.

Do You Need Prayer Revival?

If you only pray every now and then just to get something, your prayers are not going to give you spiritual growth. You have a right to expect to receive from the prayer of faith (Mark 11:23-24) or what many call petition prayer, but this type of prayer is only a part of your Christian experience–even when you are praying for others.

Asking God for something will increase your faith and give you a connection with God, but it not an electrically charged connection that comes from spending time in prayer with God focused upon Him alone.

When we spend quiet time with God, time praising and thanking Him as well as dedicating our lives to Him, we will see mountain moving faith to accomplish God’s will and to achieve a fulfilling life in Christ. If your life isn’t going well and it may seem to be falling apart, turn it over to God in prayer and then spend regular time with Him to revive your spiritual life and connect with God’s plan for you.

You may feel that time isn’t on your side, but just think about all the time you spend worrying or trying to fix thinks on your own when all you have to do is spend a little time with God and let Him show you the way. You’ll soon find that you have plenty of time for God and a great deal of joy.

So give a little time to God and consider a time for prayer in the early morning, at night when you go to bed, or whatever time that works best for you.  Return To Spiritual Revival Part I   Go to Part III
