America Pray Now We believe that the call of God for His people is to intercede day and night until we see God's divine intervention. We believe our call is the same as it was for Esther and the Jews in Shushan.

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and he shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” (Matthew 7:7)

I heard of a wife in England who had an unconverted husband. She resolved that she would pray every day for twelve months for his conversion. Every day at twelve o’clock she went to her room alone and cried to God. Her husband would not allow her to speak to him on the subject; but she could speak to God on his behalf. It may be that you have a friend who does not wish to be spoken with about his salvation; you can do as this woman did—go and pray to God about it. The twelve months passed away, and there was no sign of his yielding. She resolved to pray for six months longer; so every day she went alone and prayed for the conversion of her husband. The six months passed, and still there was no sign, no answer. The question arose in her mind, could she give him up? “No,” she said; “I will pray for him as long as God gives me breath.” That very day, when he came home to dinner, instead of going into the dining room he went upstairs. She waited, and waited, and waited; but he did not come down to dinner. Finally she went to his room, and found him on his knees crying to God to have mercy upon him. God convicted him of sin; he not only became a Christian but the Word of God had free course, and was glorified in him. God used him mightily. That was God answering the prayers of this Christian wife; she knocked, and knocked, until the answer came.

It was prevailing prayer that brought the answer to blind Bartimeus. The people, and even the disciples, tried to hush him into silence; but he only cried out the louder, “You Son of David, have mercy on me!” Prayer is hardly ever mentioned in the Bible alone; it is prayer and earnestness; prayer and watchfulness; prayer and thanksgiving. It is an instructive fact that throughout Scripture prayer is always linked with something else. Bartimeus was in earnest, and the Lord heard his cry.
The highest type of Christian is the one who has got clear beyond asking and seeking, and keeps knocking until the answer comes. If we knock, God has promised to open the door and grant our request. It may be years before the answer comes; He may keep us knocking; but He has promised that the answer will come.

When we are listless about prayer, it is the very time when we need most to pray. The only way we can overcome listlessness in anything is to put more of ourselves, not less, into the task. To pray when you do not feel like praying is not hypocrisy—it is faithfulness to the greatest duty in life. Just tell the Father that you do not feel like it—ask Him to show you what is making you listless. He will help us to overcome our moods and give us courage to persevere in spite of them. When you cannot pray as you would, pray as you can. If I feel myself disinclined to pray, then is the time when I need to pray more than ever. Possibly when the soul leaps and exults in communion with God it might more safely refrain from prayer than at those seasons when it drags heavily in devotion.

“Pray Continually” (1 Thess 5:17)
Is it hypocritical to pray when we don’t feel like it? Perhaps there is no more subtle hindrance to prayer than that of our moods. Nearly everybody has to meet that difficulty at times. Even God’s prophets were not wholly free from it. Habakkuk felt as if he were facing a blank wall for a long time. What shall we do when moods like this come to us? Wait until we do feel like praying? It is easy to persuade ourselves that it is hypocrisy to pray when we do not feel like it but we don’t argue that way about other things in life. If you were in a room that had been tightly closed for some time you would, sooner or later, begin to feel very miserable—so miserable, perhaps, that you would not want to make the effort to open the windows, especially if they were difficult to open. But your weakness and listlessness would be proof that you were beginning to need fresh air very desperately—that you would soon be ill without it.
If the soul perseveres in a life of prayer, there will come a time when these seasons of dryness will pass away and the soul will be led out, as Daniel says, “into a spacious place” (Psalm 18:19) Let nothing discourage you. If the soil is dry, keep cultivating it. It is said, in a dry time this harrowing of the corn is equal to a shower of rain.

A Key to Revival: The Broken and Contrite Heart

“For thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” ~Isaiah 57:15

Isaiah wrote this during a difficult period for God’s people. They were in a time of captivity, having been overcome by Babylon long before. Even though the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah had been faithful to God, Israel as a whole had not, and God had allowed Babylon followed by Persia to rule over them.

While things seemed impossible and the people of Israel had been defeated, Isaiah knew that God could restore all things. Hence, in this passage, we read that Isaiah, by God’s Spirit, is calling the people back.

Isaiah had already lived and experienced what he wrote in this passage. Many years before (in Isaiah 6), he looked and saw “the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up.” Through seeing the holiness of God, Isaiah’s heart became broken and contrite with repentance.

His response of brokenness was a result of comparing his life with God’s holiness. He experienced a personal revival! In chapter 57, Isaiah told God’s people that this was the answer for the nation as well. The answer is a broken and contrite spirit — a spirit of repentance that comes from recognizing the holiness of God.

This need for brokenness is found throughout church history. Through the stories of past revivals, we can see humble people who experienced the holiness of Jesus, exposing their own needs. As they witnessed God’s holiness, they saw their shortcomings leading them to repentance.

One of the leaders of a revival in Romania was a pastor and evangelist named Sammy Tippet. Just months before God called him to be a leader in the revival, he experienced God in a new way. He felt a great sense of the holiness of God and spent months in personal repentance. He described it the way the Psalmist did, as having “a broken spirit and a contrite heart.” God was preparing him for the revival that was to come.

Similarly, in the Welsh, the young pastor Evan Roberts’s heart broke before the Lord. He went before his small congregation and prayed in brokenness, sparking the flame which would transform the nation.

Time and time again, in revival after revival, we see people who experienced God’s holiness having their hearts broken as did Isaiah’s.

Sadly, many Christians do not think they need to have a broken and contrite heart. They think, “I’m a Christian. I don’t need to have a broken and contrite spirit. I don’t need to repent. I don’t need it because I’m already saved.”

If only all Christians would read and meditate on the book of Revelation. In this book, God’s holiness is revealed in the first chapter. THEN God calls the seven churches, who are born-again believers, to repentance! He calls these Christians to see their need and turn to Him — in other words, to have a broken and contrite spirit.

As we pray for revival, we must look more and more inwardly at our own hearts in the light of God’s holiness as Isaiah did and as he calls God’s people to do. If we faithfully do this, we will begin to see that we personally need a tremendous outpouring of God’s Spirit.

When we compare ourselves to the great men and women of faith who have experienced great revivals in the past, are we satisfied with our current fire for God?

When we read of the power of those in the early church comparing our lives to theirs, are we satisfied with what we have today?

We each need personal revival, just as America needs a national revival.

We see in church history that revival starts in the heart, then continues to the church, and often goes to the nation and even the world.

But widespread revival always starts with personal revival.

Both Isaiah and Jeremiah experienced personal revivals, which eventually led to national revival. They prayed and preached and prayed and preached, yet their nation fell. Ultimately though, revival did come, and their nation was restored because these prophets had first encountered the Lord in new and powerful ways.

May our prayer be, “Lord revive my own heart. Let it begin in me and flow out to our nation that so desperately needs revival!”

Once again, consider and meditate on these words found in Isaiah 57:15 “For thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

PETITION PRAYERS (Part 4)
A great many people pray but do not wait for the answer. Our Lord teaches us that we are not only to ask, but we are to wait for the answer. If it does not come, we must seek to find out the reason. I believe that we get a good many blessings just by asking; others we do not get, because there may be something in our life that needs to be brought to light. When Daniel began to pray in Babylon for the deliverance of his people, he sought to find out what the trouble was, and why God had turned away His face from them. So there may be something in our life that is keeping back the blessing; if there is, we want to find out. Someone, speaking on this subject, has said: "We are to ask with a beggar’s humility, to seek with a servant’s carefulness, and to knock with the confidence of a friend."

PETITION PRAYERS (Part 3)
I believe you will find three kinds of Christians in the church today. The first are those who ask; the second are those who seek; and the third those who knock.

“Teacher,” said a bright, earnest-faced boy, “why is it that so many prayers are unanswered? I do not understand. The Bible says, ‘Ask, and you shall receive; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you;’ but it seems to me a great many knock and are not admitted.” “Did you never sit by your cheerful parlor fire,” said the teacher, “on some dark evening, and hear a loud knocking at the door? Going to answer the summons, have you not sometimes looked out into the darkness, seeing nothing, but hearing the pattering feet of some mischievous boy, who knocked but did not wish to enter, and therefore ran away? Thus is it often with us. We ask for blessings, but do not really expect them; we knock, but do not mean to enter; we fear that Jesus will not hear us, will not fulfill His promises, will not admit us; and so we go away.” “Ah, I see,” said the earnest-faced boy, his eyes shining with the new light dawning in his soul: “Jesus cannot be expected to answer runaway knocks. He has never promised it. I mean to keep knocking, knocking, until He cannot help opening the door.” Too often we knock at mercy’s door, and then run away, instead of waiting for an entrance and an answer. Thus we act as if we were afraid of having our prayers answered.
A great many people pray in that way; they do not wait for the answer. Our Lord teaches us that we are not only to ask, but we are to wait for the answer.

PETITION PRAYERS (Part 2)
I believe if we put all the stumbling blocks out of the way, God will answer our petitions. If we put away sin and come into His presence with pure hands, as He has commanded us to come, our prayers will have power with Him. In Luke’s Gospel we have as a grand supplement to the Disciples’ Prayer, “Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.“ Some people think God does not like to be troubled with our constant coming and asking. The only way to trouble God is not to come at all. He encourages us to come to Him repeatedly, and press our claims.

PETITION PRAYERS (Part 1)
How often we go to prayer meetings without really asking for anything! Our prayers go all round the world, without anything definite being asked for. We do not expect anything. Many people would be greatly surprised if God did answer their prayers. I remember hearing of a very eloquent man who was leading a meeting in prayer. There was not a single definite petition in the whole. A poor, earnest woman shouted out: “Ask Him something man.” How often you hear what is called prayer without any asking!
“Ask, and you shall receive.”

CONDITIONS OF PREVAILING PRAYER (Part Five)
Persevere in Prayer

There must be perseverance in prayer. There must be a waiting on God and a waiting for God, as the farmer has long patience to wait for the harvest.

“Then He spoke a parable to them, that men ought to always pray and not lose heart, saying, “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary,’ and he would not for awhile; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’” Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said, And shall not God avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
(Luke 18:1-8)

“Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.” (James 5:7)

LORD, WHAT HAVE I DONE?

The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying: “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.
Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying: “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” says the LORD. “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel! The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it. And the instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, if it does evil in My sight so that it does not obey My voice, then I will relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it.
“Behold, I am fashioning a disaster and devising a plan against you. Return now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.”
~Jeremiah 18:1-11

When God spoke this word to Jeremiah, it was at the beginning of the downfall of the nation. God gave this word to His people after years of calling them to turn from their wicked ways. He was still giving them one more chance to turn to Him in repentance!
Because God is slow to anger and great in mercy, He called them year after year. He wanted to bless them. He wanted to deliver them from their enemies. He wanted to deliver them from falling into captivity.

He sent Jeremiah to stand in the gate of the Lord's house and proclaim to those who entered to worship the Lord to change their ways in order for them to continue to dwell in that place.

But the Israelites did not listen. Instead, they listened to the false prophets who promised them that peace would remain and that only blessing was coming.

God's people did not listen to His voice because they did not want to look inward. No one wanted to ponder the path of their own feet. They were going to church, offering sacrifices to the Lord, yet Jeremiah said they were all adulterers and full of immorality; their tongues bent for lies and not valiant for the truth. (Jer 9:2-3) They were content with their outward religion.

The Lord said His people were circumcised and Gentiles uncircumcised, yet because His people were uncircumcised in heart, He would destroy them all together. (Jer 9:25) Outward signs of religion were meaningless in God's eyes when the inward heart was wicked.

What is the condition of the church in America today?
Is it possible that we are in the same condition as His people were then?
Is it possible that we are not listening to God's voice, calling us to turn from our wicked ways?
How could it be that God's people had evil hearts?
Are we not righteous before God because of His blood?
Today the church is gripped with pornography(which is adultery). A few years ago, Barna Research said that almost 70% of Christian men in the church, and 50% of pastors view pornography regularly! More than likely these numbers are higher when you add those men who only view it on occasion. The church today in America is full of immorality just as in the days of Jeremiah.

Lying has also become acceptable. I heard a church leader's wife say recently that she had told her children a white lie to “protect them” from the truth of something wicked. Is there such a thing as a white lie? A white lie is a lie in God's eyes!

The Lord is gracious, slow to anger, and great in mercy; but there comes a time when because of His nature, His judgment must fall if His people will not turn from their wicked ways.

In the time of Jeremiah, God was fashioning a disaster and devising a plan against His people because they would not listen and turn from their wicked ways. He gave them one more chance to turn and repent as we saw in Jeremiah 18. Sadly, His people’s response was, “That is hopeless! So we will walk according to our own plans, and we will every one obey the dictates of his evil heart.” (Jer 18:12)

How TRAGIC! Soon after they said this, their nation was destroyed and they were taken into captivity by the wicked. Imagine what a different story would have been written if God's people had heeded at that moment to the Lord's voice and each one had pondered the path of their feet looking inward and repenting for their wicked ways.

Now in March of 2021, we are watching our nation being overcome by darkness and being led into captivity. Is this a sign of God's blessing upon us? Definitely not.

Our nation's ONLY hope of being saved is a revival, a visitation of the Spirit of God, a spiritual awakening of hearts across the land, and that visitation has to start in the church of Jesus Christ. Revival always starts with repentance. Could it be that today the most important prayer we can pray is the prayer the Lord told Jeremiah He did not hear from His people, which was, “Lord, what have I done?” (Jer 8:6)

It is time for the Church in America, for everyone individually, to ponder the path of our feet. It is time for everyone who is called by His Name to say,
“Lord, what have I done?” It is time for everyone who is called by His Name to say as Jeremiah said, “Lord, correct me in justice!”

At the last supper when Christ told His disciples that one of them would betray Him, Peter said, “Lord, is it I?” He was concerned! We need to be concerned as to whether we have offended the Lord. We need to be concerned about what we need to repent for and turn away from!

May the Lord not say of us in America as He said about His people in the days of Jeremiah, I listened and I did not hear them say, “What have I done?”

Curious- what kind of "repentance" and "revival" are you talking about? If it's the right-wing-conservative-GOP-Trump-supporting-anti-abortion-pro-war-old-testament-not-new-testament-ten-commandments-not-beatitudes variety, then you should just cease and desist right now, because your prayers aren't Christian.

America Pray Now: April 25, 2019 Father, hear our prayer tonight: Don’t let us yield to temptation: Rescue us from sin. Please help us to be transparent on our sins with our family and friends. Please help us to take the initiative and forgive others that have sinned against us. Please help us to live changed lives behaving differently as Christians. Please help us to live at a higher standard: Your standard for living. Jesus set the example God: Please help us to live and love like Jesus did. Please free us from the sins that are making us sick as a nation Lord. Please help us to communicate this message all over the country. Please help us to have a revival whereby we confess our sins as a country Lord. Please help us to live transformed lives living for you Jesus for the good of your kingdom. Thank you Lord! Amen!
Our father…Who art in heaven…Hallowed be thy name…Father, please hear our prayers: I pray that women and men become involved in the abortion decision. I pray that they find Jesus Christ, and accept Christ and the Holy Spirit inside them into their lives before their decision. I pray they choose life. Abortion is not a Constitutional right; it is a sin. It is an epidemic in this country; there will be one million abortion deaths in 2019. That is more than any other cause of death combined. Men need to become more involved in abortion decisions; they now have the right to sue in some states whereby the baby in the womb has the right to life. Men need to be spiritual leaders in the home, and they need to attend church regularly. This would help them to develop a moral compass prior to making any decision on abortion. Abortion is big business. Planned Parenthood donated 30 million to Democratic campaigns in 2018. Candidates are trying to persuade voters by running pro-abortion campaigns. It is no longer okay to vote for a candidate just because they are pro-choice or pro-abortion. The time is now to take action, comment, and share. Socialism in this country is at epidemic proportions. In Venezuela, millions are leaving their country because of Socialist President Maduro. He is denying basic supplies to families, and he is denying Humanitarian aid. In fact, he is burning it. Several years ago, they took away all personal guns. I pray that people become aware of the evils of Socialism before it’s too late. God does not support Socialism because it encourages laziness. I want to pray for the people in Venezuela that they may find safety, security, freedom from Socialist rule, and a good home. I pray for all the men and women serving in the military. Please keep them safe and help them to do their jobs very well. Provide angels to protect them wherever they go. Please make special consideration for all the veterans and for all those that have died in service to our great country. That is my prayer today. Amen!
Lord, please watch over all of our service men and women. Please keep them healthy and safe anywhere they go. Please specifically watch over this unit and give them daily angels to protect them. Please give special consideration for all the serviceman who have died while in service.

I have four additional prayer requests for that meeting and for this group: 1. Please pray for the people of Venezuela trying to escape Socialist dictator President Maduro. 2. Please pray for children with disabilities (Like Autism). 3. Please pray for orphans. 4. Please pray for the sick in the hospital today with nobody to pray for them. I appear caught in a dilemma. I am now an advocate of World Vision USA, but I am totally against the United Nations. I want the US out of the UN ASAP. I hope that is never a conflict. I am saying that people in the US should support charities like World Vision much more because one of their goals is solving world poverty. However, I am advocating denying the UN because they will get us into forced Global Socialism and redistribution of income and property. Does that dilemma make sense now?
