Stop praying for revival and start praying people repent

26 Apr

When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public
officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to
choose for rulers, “just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The
preservation of government depends on the faithful discharge of this
duty;if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in
office, the government will soon be corrupted;laws will be made, not for
the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes;corrupt or
incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws;the public
revenues will be squandered on unworthy men;and the rights of the
citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a republican government
fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the
citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and
administer the laws.

2 Samuel 23:3 (King James Version)
 3The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth
over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.

Pray for repentance my friend. I like to be more direct on what i fell needs to happen. Revival will come when people repent from their sins and turn to Christ. Live the life that is pleasing to the Lord, and be a example to others.

Colossians 1:10 (King James Version)


 10That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

Revival is a community thing, to me, repentance is a personal one. Each one of us need to acknowledge our sins and strive to be "Salt and Light" to this world.

Matthew 5:13-16 (King James Version)


 13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

 14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

 15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
