 復興的禱告

 

    「天父啊!我贊美你的名,因為你借著主耶穌基督,賜給我恩典,為我預備得勝的生活,使我克服失敗和罪惡,我實在歡喜快樂。如今在你面前,我承認自己的罪惡、別人的罪惡和我們國家的罪惡,求上帝大施憐憫,我愿在你面前,承認自己的罪惡、別人的罪惡和我們國家的罪惡:求上帝大施憐憫,我愿在你面前,承認我們信徒的不冷不熱,和沾染世俗的罪﹔同時也承認我們社會的邪惡,應受上帝的審判。在娛樂界里有毒品的流行、醉酒和道德的敗壞,犯罪的事日增,缺乏道德的標准。求上帝赦免宗教界自由主義的罪,也赦免基要派彼此嚴厲的批評和磨擦。

    我為那些邪惡和欺詐的人對邪靈活動日感興趣而哀慟。求上帝不要用審判所多瑪的烈怒來對付我們。只傾出一種大能,使人為罪自責,愿罪人因罪的重擔哀聲嘆息,好像在五旬節的情形一般,直等到他們呼喊:『我們當怎樣行?』

    贊美上帝的聖名,籍著主耶穌基督和他的工作,你有足夠的恩典,垂聽我們的呼求。求你用十字架上的寶血,與復活的能力,對付人心中的罪惡和悖逆,我愿等候聖靈的帶領,一直到復興。

    我深知撒但和幽暗權勢,正以殘酷的手段,來策畫各種計謀以阻止教會復興,它已經縝密的建立起它的國度,反對一切聖潔和良善的人。

    靠主耶穌基督的名,我要攻破撒但為攔阻復興所建立的堅固營壘,求上帝使用主耶穌基督十字架上的得勝和復活,直接抵擋撒但攔阻教會復興的計划。我要打倒撒但借著宗教上的外表,使許多人受捆綁及眼瞎,以及借著不愿禱告和不注重上帝的話使人軟弱無力等等。我要為主耶穌基督奪回撒但為阻止教會復興所占領的地盤,憑著耶穌基督的十字架和復活,我確信,撒但的計划已經完全被粉粹,我要毀壞撒但在復興來臨所做移轉的企圖。我呼求聖靈將智慧和分辨的靈,澆灌在你所揀選帶領教會復興的領袖們身上,愿這次復興的程度比以前更大,能夠潔淨教會,預備迎接主的再臨,并使普天下的人都歸向主。

    慈愛的主耶穌基督,你勸我們來買為復興教會所需要的東西,求你賜給我們火煉的金子,當你活在我們手里面時,使我們穿上潔淨的白衣,用聖靈的眼藥涂抹我們,使我們能看見屬靈的真理,固守真道,并做實際的運用。慈悲的救主,我愿敞開心門,讓你做我心中的主,求你再一次更新你的教會,并做教會的主。使我們所有人,都能與主相交,更進主的愛里。我的祈求和贊美,都是靠主耶穌基督的功勞,阿們!」

Revival Prayer

    Heavenly Father, I praise Your name for the grace that has come to me through the Lord Jesus Christ. I rejoice in the victory which You have provided for me to live above sin and failure. I come before You in confession and to plead Your mercy over my own sins, the sins of other believers, and the sins of our nation. Our nation stands before You, deserving Your wrath and judgment. I confess the sins of lukewarmness, apathy, and worldliness on the part of believers. I acknowledge before You the wickedness of our society and its deserving of judgment. I stand in to confess the awful affront to You which is represented in the drug epidemic, the drunkenness, the moral rottenness in the entertainment field, the crime increases of our land, and the lack of moral character in national leadership. I ask forgiveness and mercy for the religious sins of liberalism and the too-often harsh, bitter criticism and contentious spirit of fundamentalism. I grieve with You over the awful rise of interest in the occult and the open worship of Satan by wicked, deceived people. May You judge not this nation with wrath and fury as upon Sodom, but judge it with a mighty outpouring of conviction of sin.

    May sinners groan under the burden of their guilt until the people cry out as did those at Pentecost, “What shall we do?”

    I praise Your holy name that there is sufficient measure of grace through the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ to answer this cry. I plead the blood of the cross and the power of the resurrection against the wretched sins and rebellion of the hearts of men against God. I wait for the Holy Spirit to lead and prepare and bring us all to revival.

    I recognize that Satan and the kingdom of darkness over which he rules have plotted and strategized against revival with relentless effort. Satan has built carefully his kingdom to oppose all that is holy and good.

    In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I smash and pull down all of the strongholds that Satan has erected to hinder revival. I pray the focus of the mighty victory of the cross and the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ directly against Satan's plans to hinder revival. I pull down his strongholds of religious loyalties that blind and bind so many. I pull down his strongholds of prayerlessness and carelessness with the Word of God. I claim back for the Lord Jesus Christ the ground Satan is claiming as a means of hindering revival, and I affirm that Satan's plans were fully defeated through the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I pull down all of Satan's plans to divert revival when it comes. I call for the Holy Spirit to grant wisdom and discernment to the leaders of revival chosen by You to lead. May this revival for which I pray be greater than any that has ever come before. May it serve to purify the church and prepare it for the coming of our Lord. May it bring multitudes into the fold all over the world. Loving Lord Jesus Christ, You invited us to come and buy of You that which we need for revival. Give us the gold tried in the fires of testing brought by Your sovereign power. Give us the white raiment of Your purity as You live Your life in us. Grant us the eyesalve of the Holy Spirit's anointing to see spiritual truth, to retain it, and to apply it in practice. I open the door to Your Lordship, dear Saviour. I invite You to come in to me personally and into Your church with a fresh visit and to be the sovereign Lord You are, that we all might fellowship with you in the deepness of Your love. I ask this all and bring it before You with praise in the merit and worthiness of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
