Prepare the Way

“A voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him. Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth. And all mankind will see God’s salvation.’” Luke 3:4-6

I believe revival is birthed in the closet of prayer. When we seek his face with all our hearts, He hears us. The Lord calls us to repent of our individual sin and apathy; he provokes us to pray for our land.

Let’s invite the Holy Spirit to restore our zeal to witness revival among us. As we pray, we pave the way for God to move in miraculous ways. Let’s allow the Master to do a significant work within us and believe him for big things! Who knows? Revival may just be right around the corner. We can pray privately as well as corporately. God is looking for clean hands and pure hearts. He wants us hungry for a move of His Spirit.

As we pray, the Lord’s fire burns strong in us. That fire cleanses us of impurity and prepares us to be vessels of honor. The Lord wants to send us out to those that do not know Jesus. We are salt and light, and we have the message the world desperately needs.

The Lord asks each of us to seek him with love and intensity. He searches across the whole earth for fishers of men. We can answer the call. It was said of the early believers that they turned the world upside down for the cause of Christ. Together we can do the same.

Lord of Heaven,

Teach me to pray for revival. Cleanse my heart and give me a burden for lost souls. Let me unite with other believers to see revival take our cities, our nation, and our world. Make me a vessel of honor. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
