Let’s Start Praying for Revival Today

If you were following along this past weekend, you know that Katie Laitkep and I were sharing updates live from Revive '19: Seeking Him, Revive Our Hearts’ conference in Indianapolis. (If not, you can go through our last few posts to catch up.) At the conference, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and the other speakers called us to intentionally seek God and His ways. We want to give you the same invitation through a guided prayer journey. So, I’m handing the blog over to our trail guide, Erin Davis, who hosted the Revive '19 livestream. She has gathered a team of experienced prayer adventurers, who’ll be leading us in the “Seeking Him Through Prayer Challenge,” a fourteen-day trek of praying for revival. There’s glory on the other side of the mountain, but know: there is a climb ahead. Pack your bag and strap on your boots. Erin is about to kick it off and let you know what you’re in for. —Hayley Mullins, True Woman Blog Content Manager

With my own two eyes, I’ve seen Him do it.

I’ve seen the Lord restore marriages that seemed broken beyond repair. 
I’ve seen Him bring reconciliation in relationships that looked too far gone. 
I’ve seen Him reshape hearts of stone into hearts of flesh. 
I’ve seen Him heal. 
I’ve felt Him move. 
I’ve watched Him intervene. 

That’s how I know, deep down in my guts, that He will do it againthe Lord will send revival. He is able to breathe new life into my own heart, my own family, and His own Church in these days.

In Malachi 3:6, God declared, “I the LORD do not change.” Let’s consider revival through this grid. 

The greatest indicator that He will send revival is the undeniable fact that He has sent revival, over and over (and over). Our unchanging God has been changing hearts for millennia.

Does your heart need revival?
Do your relationships need resuscitation?
Do you long to see God’s people restored to a right relationship with Him?

Then consider this challenge an invitation to seek the Lord and trust Him to keep His promises. 

For the next twelve days, we will:

Look up and intentionally focus on God’s unique ability to breathe new life into the hearts of His people.
Look in and consider what areas of our own lives we’d like to see God revive. 
Look out, asking the Lord to send revival to His Church and beyond. 

Each day you’ll be challenged to pray for revival specifically and to trust the life-giving promises of God. 

The psalmist was staking his own claim in the promises of God when he declared, 

When the humble see it they will be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive (Ps. 69:32, emphasis added). 

Who does God revive? Those who choose to seek Him.

Thank you for accepting the challenge to dedicate the next twelve days to praying for revival. Let’s seek Him together, assured that, as we do, He will restore, renew, and revive us. 

For it is the time to seek the LORD. (Hos. 10:12)

Seeking Him Together, 

Erin
