A Prayer For National Revival

 

A PRAYER FOR NATIONAL REVIVAL

Annual National "HEALING THE LAND" Prayer Conference, 2013

As a people we covenanted with God 50 years ago when we said "Eternal Father bless our Land" " ……I Pledge……so that Jamaica may under God…" as the church we are reminded of our authority and responsibility to seek God until our covenanted destiny is realized in Him.

The conditions for revival

The conditions for revival are listed in 2 Chron. 7:12-16 i.e. humility, prayer, seeking God's face and turning from sin.

Lev 26:40-41 But if they will confess their sins and the sins of their fathers, their treachery against me and their hostility toward me, which made me hostile toward them…when their uncircumcised hearts are humbled and they pay for their sin … and I will remember the land.

(2 Chr.32:26) Then Hezekiah repented of the pride of his heart, as did the people of Jerusalem; therefore the Lord's wrath did not come upon them during the days of Hezekiah.

The greatest need of this our Nation today is a mighty manifestation of the Spirit of God in revival power. For this to happen, God's House must be thoroughly cleansed for the 'King of Glory' to come in.

Revival is when God reveals Himself in awesome holiness and irresistible power. It is when He visits the world of men to impart a fresh vision of His glory and grace and, simultaneously, to reveal man's sinfulness, inadequacy and desperate need of God's mercy.

our prayer

LET'S PRAY: Merciful God, we repent of the pride in our hearts. We exalted ourselves against one another and also against you. We interpreted Your Word to suit our purposes and to favour our own plans. Please have mercy and forgive us, and let your wrath be turned away from our Nation in this day!

We embraced today the doctrine of sanctification and a passion for more power, more holiness, more evangelistic outreach and success, and a greater outpouring of your Spirit to take a hold of your church.

Spread the desire for revival like a wild fire, and ignite a passion for corporate prayer and worship in the churches which bear your name, as never seen or experienced in this Nation before. Let there be a fresh expectation for God to work in every parish, through the established systems and structures of the society.

As our Nation struggles for her identity in this Global Convergence, we as the church cry that you would bring a conscious awakening in the hearts of the Leaders of our Churches so they may set apart and send forth radical missionaries and evangelist to influence, affect and reap the current harvest field, which are on your agenda for this time.

Let the people in this Land be taken by surprise and be carried by the fire storm of the Holy Ghost.

Restore your people from backsliding, carelessness and inactivity and make us become intensely prayerful. Develop in your people o Lord, a passion for souls that they become deeply concerned about the spiritual welfare of the lost.

Father, let every trait of ungodliness disappear. Blasphemy and filthy language, drunkenness and immorality, dishonesty, lying and selfishness and replace them with a sweet sense of your righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Blanket the whole nation with your renewing activity that no inhabited places are without some evidence of your glorious manifestations.

Lord open up the heavens and send us 'times of refreshing' from your presence and advance your cause and the cause of the church in the Land. Revive your church to achieve her mission and to fulfil the Great Commission of invading the Nation with the life-saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Give to this Nation heroic souls who will enter the conflict determined to win or die - or if need be, to win and die! Matt 11:12 "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force".

Father of the heavens, divinely intervene in our affairs and may the life of God invade fallen structures and systems, principalities and powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world, spiritual wickedness in high places; to restore and reclaim your greatness and glory and bring a new return to intimacy with Christ and loyalty to your word.

In Jesus Name we pray, AMEN!

our declaration

JOIN IN AS WE DECLARE AND DECREE A COVERING FOR JAMAICA

I come in the name of the resurrected Jesus, whose I am and whom I serve, "that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord". (Phil 2:10-11, KJV; see also Psalm 82:1-8).

I effect and enforce God's original plans and purposes over and against the plans and purposes of Satan for our Island of Jamaica. For our arts and entertainment, for our Economy (Business), for educators and Education, for our Family, for media and media related organizations, for our churches and faith based organizations and for our Government and our leaders. (Daniel 6:1-28).

I decree and declare that in this battle no internal or external weapon, be it emotional, financial, social, physical, psychological, relational, spiritual, or organizational, or governmental, formed against our efforts in prayer and spiritual reconstruction of our nation shall prosper. (1 Samuel 17:47; Isaiah 54:17; Jer 51:20; John 14:30; 2 Cor 7:5; Eph 4:27).

We accept upon ourselves the armor of light and of the Lord. (Romans 13:12; Eph 6:13-17)

I decree and declare that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6; Ephesians 6:13-18; Romans 13:12; 1 Samuel 17:45).

I pull down strongholds, cast down vain imaginations and every high thing that lifts itself against the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Our thoughts, our purposes and our plans are now subject to the Lordship of Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5; Isaiah 14:13-14; Ezekiel 28:2).

I speak that God's anointing destroys every yoke that hinders our national and spiritual life, and that our nation, our churches and all that we pray for functions in order according to God's own divine systems of protocol. (l Corinthians 9:27, 14:40, Isa 10:27 ).

I decree and declare that this nation and its people are healed and whole; satan's plans, decrees, purposes and strategies are rebuked and nullified for this island of the sea, Jamaica. (Isaiah 53:5).

I establish divine parameters, boundaries and borders, and legislate and establish the laws of the kingdom of heaven to govern all activities within our Government and authorities on this island of Jamaica. (l Chron. 4:10 ; Psalm 147:14; Isaiah 60:18).
