Praying for Awakening in Our Church & World

Justin Taylor recently posted some excellent things to pray for our church. Pray that God would move in such a way that would result in:

  • hundreds of people coming to Christ,
  • old animosities being removed,
  • marriages being reconciled and renewed,
  • wayward children coming home,
  • long-standing slavery to sin being conquered,
  • spiritual dullness being replaced by vibrant joy,
  • weak faith being replaced by bold witness,
  • disinterest in prayer being replaced by fervent intercession,
  • boring Bible reading being replaced by passion for the Word,
  • disinterest in global missions being replaced by energy for Christ’s name among the nations, and
  • lukewarm worship being replaced by zeal for the greatness of God’s glory.

Then in a follow-up post, he shared a comment from John Bryson:

If Jesus answered all your prayers from the last 30 days, would anything change in THE World or just YOUR world?

That puts some things in perspective doesn’t it?
