Prayer For The Awakening Of God's People

Lord, I pray Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.  Let Your will be fulfilled through Your people, Your church.  Bring revelation, reveal Your will and make it known to our hearts.  Reveal Your heart and cause it to become our heart.  Reveal Your thoughts and help us to renew our thoughts to be in line with Yours.  Open our eyes, our ears and our minds.
Awaken Your people, stir us from within, stir the very depths of our beings and cause them to begin to be moved by the wind of Your Holy Spirit.  Oh God, our God, forgive us for becoming cold and distant with You.  We're calling out in repentance Lord.  Forgive our apathy.  Forgive our lack of hunger for Your Word and Your presence.  God, draw us once again to Your well of living water.
May our hearts pant after You, allowing nothing to quench our thirst but more of You.  We commit to stir ourselves, shake ourselves from this spiritual slumber.  We wipe the sleep from our eyes, Oh Lord, we desire to be alive once more in Your will and Your way.
Psalm 51:10 New American Standard Bible (©1995)
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
