Heavenly Father, pour out Your Holy Spirit like a mighty flood into the hearts of all Your people, those who are called by Your name. May our hearts be washed by the water of the Word and may the purifying light of the Holy Spirit cleanse the thoughts, wash the hearts and purify the minds of those who are part of the church, which is Your Body.
Lord, we pray that You would purify the hearts and minds of all Your people so that our thoughts are ever turned toward the Lord Jesus. May we as individual members and also as a body of believers, learn to seek Your will in our lives, so that our prayers are filtered through the light of Your will, so that they are tuned into Your perfect plans and purposes. May the desire of all believers be to lift up Your name so that You are honoured in the fellowships and local churches in His rightful position as Head, and may the Lord Jesus remain the central focus of the intent of our hearts
Lord, we pray that You would revive the hearts of all believers and especially those who have left their first love, become involved in a distorted gospel, fallen into legalism or become lukewarm toward You. Draw each one back into a right relationship with You and with each other. Revive Your people we pray, and turn the hearts of all Your people back to Yourself. In Jesus’ name,
Loving Lord Jesus, it saddens me to see the way that the gospel of Jesus Christ is being so compromised in our land. As a nation we seem to have moved so far from the true gospel of grace and our churches and fellowships seem to be embracing many alternative and compromised teachings that are not true to Your Word.
Revive this land I pray. Stir up the hearts of those that have come to trust in Jesus Christ, but who have been enticed to follow a different gospel or who have chosen to walk the way of compromised. Let those that are Your blood-bought children, be stirred in their hearts to seek the truth and to draw ever closer to the Lord Jesus. And Lord, for those who once trusted You but have now wandered far away, I pray that You will speak to their hearts, revive their spirit and draw them back into close fellowship with Yourself. Revive this land, I pray. In Jesus’ name,
Heavenly Father, my life is weak and seems to be failing and falling apart and in my heart I know that this is due to a long-term neglect of You and Your ways. Forgive me I pray, and help me to return into true fellowship with You once again.
Lord, I believe that You have stirred in my spirit the need to turn from my worldly ways and to look again to Christ. I believe that You have quickened my spirit to call my heart back to You. Lord, I know that Your Word tells us that Godly sorrow brings repentance and I know that I have strayed far from You, and Lord I truly repent in my heart. I truly desire to turn away from the ways that have entrapped me for so long and to return to You. Thank You that even though I have been faithless, You have remained faithful.
Bring me I pray, to the foot of the cross. I need to hand over the reigns of my life to You. Too long I have tried to do things my way and I realise that only in You is true peace found. But Lord, I know I am weak and do not want to wander away from You again, and so I ask that You would draw me daily, and place in my heart a fervent desire for You, a desire to be in Your Word and a desire to meet with You in prayerful communion. Lord, I confess that without You I can do nothing. Bring me I pray, to such spiritual brokenness that I will never again stray from Your loving arms. In Jesus’ name I pray,
