CU National Fast 2018 Prayer for Revival

by Christian union america

If at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, and if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I intended to do to it. And if at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it, and if it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will relent of the good that I had intended to do to it. -Jeremiah 18:7-10

Our God is the King of the nations (Revelation 15:3).The prophet Jeremiah reveals that the Lord has plans for people groups, not just for individuals. When a nation turns from evil and listens to the Lord, He will direct His mercy and grace to that land and to its people. Even under the Old Covenant, God had plans for nations other than Israel. The King of the nations has special purposes for each and every nation - including the United States - that exists throughout history.

The people of God must stand in the place of intercession for its nation (Ezekiel 22:29-30). We must act with faithfulness and ask God to bring repentance and faith to our nation at this critical time in history.

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
(1 Timothy 2:1-4)

The disciples of Jesus are the salt of earth and the light of the world (Matthew 5:13-16). If we lose our saltiness or hide our light, whose purpose are we fulfilling with our lives? Our relentless cry must join with the psalmist: Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? (Psalm 85:6)

Prayer and repentance are two ways that God's people can access God's gifts and experience His goodness. The Father will hear and respond to the cries of His children. So, let us pray with pure hearts and passion to see God's will done on earth, as it is in heaven, according to the word of God (Luke 18:1-8):

  • I exalt You, King of the nations, who righteously reigns over the earth in perfect wisdom and strength.
  • I praise You, Father, for the United States of America and for all its freedoms and blessings.
