Will You Pray for Awakening? Download Your Free Prayer Guide

from May 02, 2021 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 2021 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.


  • Week 1: Pray that you and your family will hide Scripture in your heart so that you will be ready to preach the gospel and edify others with God’s Word. “These words that I command you today shall be on your heart.” (Deut. 6:6)
  • Week 2: Pray that you and your church will mourn for those who do not know or keep God’s law and be moved to reach out to the community with the gospel of God. “My eyes shed streams of tears, because people do not keep your law.” (Ps. 119:136)
  • Week 3: Pray that the people in your city and nation will seek out teachers who will give them the truth of the gospel and not false doctrine. “The time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions.” (2 Tim. 4:3)
  • Week 4: Pray that God’s kingdom will come in power around the world so that many will know Christ and do His will. “Your kingdom come.” (Matt. 6:10)

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.
