Will You Pray for Awakening? Download Your Free Prayer Guide

from Apr 07, 2019 Category: Ligonier Resources

We live in a world that needs awakening. Millions of people do not know Jesus Christ. The church itself needs renewed zeal for the truth, for spiritual growth, and for missions. Scripture reveals how this awakening comes about: by a powerful movement of the Spirit of God. It also tells us that when just two men—Paul and Silas—prayed, the earth itself shook (Acts 16:25–26). So we are dedicating the entire year of 2019 to pray for awakening, and we hope you will, too.

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 loved ones.

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 the world and the global church. You can also share your desire to #PrayForAwakening on social media.

APRIL PRAYER FOCUS:

  • Week 1: Pray that you and your family will be committed to studying, doing, and teaching the Word of God, which is the means of awakening. “Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.” (Ezra 7:10)
  • Week 2: Pray that you will be willing to speak God’s Word to the people in your life and that God will supply opportunities to do so. “You … shall talk of [God’s commandments] when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” (Deut. 6:7)
  • Week 3: Pray that God will grant many people in your city and in your nation the saving knowledge of Christ. “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him.” (Eph. 1:17)
  • Week 4: Pray that missionaries and church leaders throughout the world will be delivered from the opposition of unbelievers so that they might preach the gospel without hindrance. “I appeal to you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God on my behalf, that I may be delivered from the unbelievers in Judea, and that my service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints.” (Rom. 15:30–31)

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.
