Will You Pray for Awakening? Download Your Free Prayer Guide

from Jun 03, 2018 Category: Ligonier Resources

We live in a world that needs awakening. What is awakening? It is a powerful movement of the Spirit of God to convert many people to Christ and to renew in His church a zeal for His truth, for spiritual growth, and for missions. This was R.C. Sproul’s passion, and in the final years of his life, he was constantly in prayer for awakening. He prayed and labored to see nonbelievers and the church itself awakened to the true character of God. So vital is this concern to Ligonier Ministries, we made awakening the theme of our 2018 National Conference and dedicated the entire year to pray for awakening.

When just two men–Paul and Silas–prayed, the earth itself shook (Acts 16:25–26). To help as many people as possible, we produced this free prayer guide. Download it today at PrayForAwakening.com, find it in the PrayerMate app, or order the prayer booklet in packs of ten to share with your friends, family, and church community.

To use the guide, find the prayer that corresponds to the current week. Each week of the month focuses on a different group to pray for, starting with you and your family and expanding to larger communities. Please share your desire to #PrayForAwakening on social media.

JUNE PRAYER FOCUS:

  • Week 1: Pray that you and your family would gladly do what God wills, as is outlined in His Word. “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matt. 6:10)
  • Week 2: Pray that you and your church would live holy lives before friends and neighbors so that your witness to the gospel will have a credible testimony. “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Pet. 2:9)
  • Week 3: Pray that your nation and city would praise God and not curse Him. “Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!” (Ps. 67:3)
  • Week 4: Pray that the church around the world would not be content simply with making converts but would strive to make disciples. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matt. 28:19–20)

We hope this prayer guide encourages you this year and in future years. Join us in praying fervently for a mighty movement of God’s Spirit today, thankful that He has graciously promised to hear us, and confident that He will answer our prayers according to His will.
