The revival prayer and posture

Standing, sitting, walking, or knelling, prayer for revival needs to be from the heart! Here’s my revival prayer:

Send me, Jesus! I don’t want to continually sit and be satisfied with Sunday sermons about You. I want to hear, to follow, and to obey You every day and be a light that helps make everyone I meet aware of the reality of Your presence and love.

Revival is the wake-up sound of God sending . . .
Too many Christians
Are content
To conform
To the culture
Around them
Without a hint
That God’s intent
Is that we’re all sent
To show and tell
People how
To repent
And be
Set free
By the
Risen Jesus.
Go into the world
And make disciples.

When I first wake up in the morning, I sense Jesus’ voice while I’m still in bed. As I listen, His words focus me on what He wants to say and do throughout the day.

Hearing what the Spirit is saying, noticing His promptings within you, is the first step to being Spirit-led. If people were trained to daily hear what the Spirit is saying and verify it with the Bible, they would no longer be dependent on sermon-hearing.

The resurrected Jesus repeatedly told His followers to hear what the Spirit is saying to them when they gather as His body. It’s time to meet to hear and obey His inner promptings and then be sent by Jesus to change the world with His love. Jesus wants to send all His followers into the world to make disciples, not to have them forever sit and hear sermons about Christianity 101.

Be aware.
Notice people’s pain.
Dare to care
And to share
Some kindness

Christians are meant
To be sent
To spread good news,
Not to stay
In a church
And waste away.

See a Jesus Revelation on the screen of your heart and you’ll never be the same. Revival needs new wineskins: Search: The Joy of Early Christianity book.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
