Fresh Rain, Fresh Fire
Oh, God, revive us. Set a fire deep into our bellies that can not be quenched. Draw our hearts back to You, create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us. Do not let us give lip service only while our hearts are far from You. Lead us to repentance. Forgive us, God, for building idols in forms of self gratification, pride, fear, and political correctness.
Heal us, Father. Touch the deep wounds with Your healing balm. Where we are proud, help us to humble ourselves. Where we have been offended, help us to forgive. Where we have offended, help us to seek forgiveness. When the enemy comes in like a flood, lift a standard against him. Help us to not forget where we come from so we may have compassion on others.
Do not let us give lip service only, we do not want to be walking dead people. Show us, Holy Spirit, how we can express our faith to the world to bring You glory and honor. Let everything we do and say lead others to You. Help us to walk in a spirit of humility, gentleness, kindness, patience, and love.
You said You always have a remnant, I call them forth now, from the east, west, north, and south. I call Your people to answer the call, to rise up, to not slumber, for we know Your return is very soon. Jesus, come soon, and find faith in this world.
I love You, Lord. Revive us, start with me, shine Your light through me in this dark world. Strengthen my legs so I may stand. Anoint my lips so I may speak. Remove anything not of You. Lead me, Lord, set up road blocks to keep me on Your path.
Thank You for Your unfailing love. In You we are fully accepted and forgiven. We are Your people and You are our God.
