This is a sample of revival prayer from She Divides the Spoil: ‘Our Heavenly Father, in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, please incline your ear to this petition before Your face. We repent for the sins of the people in our (town, city, county, or state) and ask in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ for Your mercy, forgiveness and salvation upon these people. We are aware that the people have sinned against You and Your laws and Your commandments. We repent for all the sins which have been committed by people of (town, city, county, or state): fornication, adultery, homosexuality, all sorts of sexual abominations, pornography, divorces, all kinds of human trafficking and abuse, extortions, murders, abortions, hatred, jealousies, envy, covetousness, love of money, revelry, contentions, drunkenness, smoking, drug use, idolatry, uncleanness, lewdness, sorcery, outbursts of wrath, evil speech, and all kind of abomination and unrighteousness in Your sight.
We also repent for the sins of our church, for we have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled by departing from Your precepts and from Your judgements, from Your Word and from Your commandments. We have forgotten to be your bondservants and went after our own follies and each one our own ways. We repent for allowing in our midst all sorts of sexual immorality, divorces, partiality, hypocrisy, all sort of uncleanness, extortions, abortions, hatred, jealousies, envy, covetousness, revelry, contentions, drunkenness, smoking, outbursts of wrath, gossip and evil speech. We repent for our spiritual laziness by forgetting to be the salt and the light of the world, and for putting aside our true source of the truth – Your Holy Bible. We repent for allowing false doctrines to enter into our midst. We repent for rejecting the Holy Spirit by trying to do everything on our own. We repent that on our post many souls slipped away into hell while we are busy following our ambitions. Forgive us for not fasting and praying for the lost.
We thank You for Your Son’s blood and His redeeming sacrifice. We glorify You for Your mercy and Your patience. We thank You for Your Holy Word and the work of the Holy Spirit. We thank You for the physical blessings You have been pouring out on our (church, town, city, county, or state). We thank you for Your providence with food, clean water, clothing, shelter, and peace. We give thanks for all men and rulers of (town, city, county, or state), bless them and help them to seek You and pass moral laws, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. Lord of the harvest, please send out laborers to gather harvest in (town, city, county, or state) and into our churches, schools, higher education institutions, nursing homes, hospitals, and our homes, for this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, for You desire all men to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth. For Christ Jesus is the only one God and one Mediator between God and men, who gave Himself a ransom for all.
We realize, that we are weak but You are strong, we are fallen and without You we can do nothing. We humbly ask You to hear our prayer and supplication and answer us because of Your Son’s sacrifice and Your mercy. Please, forgive us and pour out Your Spirit and move amongst us for the salvation of many. Give us unity, strength to persevere, faith, and the ability and willingness to serve You with prayer and fasting and without compromises. Amen.’
(Note: this prayer will be very effective if it is prayed in unity with at least two people three times a day for forty days. But feel free to do it as God leads you. Also, adjust it to your needs. Better to pray than not to pray at all.)
Please share for the glory of Jesus Christ. Thank you!
