Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
Luke 18:1 “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint”
George Müller, the Nineteenth Century British evangelist stated the following: “The great fault of the children of God is, they do not continue in prayer; they do not go on praying; they do not persevere. If they desire anything for God’s glory, they should pray until they get it. Oh, how good, and kind, and gracious, and condescending is the One with Whom we have to do! He has given me, unworthy as I am, immeasurably above all I had asked or thought!”
It is easy to get dismayed and discouraged by the environment around us. In Twenty-first Century America, there are plenty of things that should rightfully raise our concern. There is divisiveness and discord, strife and sin, meanness and maliciousness, and contentiousness and corruptness all around us. It is easy to throw up our hands and throw in the towel. The situation seems hopeless.
Yet, are we praying for revival in this land as we should? Are we coming boldly unto the throne of grace? Are we knocking with importunity? Are we faintlessly praying? Are we seeking God with a continuing spirit of perseverance?
Until we do, there is more for us to do to reverse the errant direction of this land. PLEASE PRAY FOR AN AMERICAN REVIVAL WITH PERSEVERANCE AND IMPORTUNITY. If we fall prey to the great fault of passiveness and prayerlessness, then the dire situation in this land is actually our fault.
