Cry Out!

Editor’s Note:During the month of October, we’re pausing our regular blog content to bring to you an opportunity to Cry Out! in earnest prayer with the Revive Our Hearts family. Our deepest desire is that rather than bringing you more noise during these days, our October posts, informed by devotional content from the 31-Day Cry Out! Email Challenge, would help you to quiet your heart and seek the Lord with us. —Laura Elliott, Managing Editor, Revive Our Hearts

Yet when they turned and cried to you, you heard from heaven, and many times you delivered them according to your mercies. —Nehemiah 9:28

I’m convinced that becoming a mother restructured my eardrums.

Before having kids, I could sleep through anything, peacefully oblivious to the sounds around me. Now, the softest whisper from my sons can jolt me awake. My ears, it seems, are always on high alert for any indication that my children are crying out for their momma.

Welcome to the Cry Out! Challenge. This is so much more than another task to add to your to-do list. It is an alarm, calling the Church to see what’s happening in our world, to sit under the burden of it, and to set aside thirty days for desperate, focused prayer.

Listen again to Nehemiah 9:28. “Yet when they turned and cried to you, you heard from heaven, and many times you delivered them according to your mercies” (emphasis added).

Our world is experiencing:

  • Political division
  • Economic hardship
  • Medical crisis
  • Personal and corporate devastation
  • Erosion of biblical values

And yet . . . when we turn and cry out to God, He hears us. He delivers us according to His mercies. For the next thirty days (and beyond), we are declaring our hope in the “yet.” Thank you for joining us on the journey.
