Most Holy God, are we a nation that has become Christian in spirit but secular in practice? Are we just a bunch of cultural Christians? Have we become so lukewarm that You want to do away with us? Never! We know from Scripture that You are right there--standing at the door--knocking--ready to be our Lord. Because of the great love with which You have loved us, You most certainly hear our prayers for revival, renewal, restoration, reformation, and spiritual awakening.
Father, whatever it is that is holding You back from releasing Your Spirit upon our land, reveal it to each of us through our pastors this Sabbath and over the next several Sabbaths so that we may humble ourselves, repent, seek your face, and turn from our wicked ways, so that You may hear our prayer, forgive our sins, and heal our land. In Jesus' Name, amen.
