National Day of Prayer: Praying for ‘Times of Refreshing’

Posted by

Let us gather on the National Day of Prayer, May 2, 2024, and pray for “times of refreshing” from the Lord:

“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord” (Acts 3:19, NIV).

We know from 2 Chronicles 7:14 that it is up to God’s people to humble themselves, seek God and repent to bring healing to the nation. We have been proud like the Laodicean church, following our own programs and keeping Jesus out. We have not sought God, but instead have served ourselves and become loveless and dead, like the churches at Ephesus and Sardis. And many of our churches have compromised or even encouraged sin in defiance of God’s Word, like the churches at Pergamum and Thyatira.

To heal our land, let us return to our first love, serve God and our communities by showing God’s love and taking our place as watchmen on the wall to warn against sin.

Then let us pray for repentance and revival in our families, our cities and our nation. Pray that the Lord of the harvest will send out workers, and always be prepared to give an answer for your faith.

God is faithful and just to forgive our sins and send times of refreshing.

May God bless you.

And may God bless America.
