The National Day of Prayer

 

On this National Day of Prayer, let us lift our voices across this blessed land that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory would pour out upon us another Great Awakening!

O Lord, pour out upon us “a spirit of prayer” that would enable us to pray for such an Awakening. Daniel asked for prayer and then he prayed.

Young’s Literal Translation Daniel 9:3-5

…and I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek [by] prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes.

Dan. 9:4 And I pray to Jehovah my God, and confess, and say: ‘I beseech Thee, O Lord God, the great and the fearful, keeping the covenant and the kindness to those loving Him, and to those keeping His commands; we have sinned, and done perversely, and done wickedly, and rebelled, to turn aside from Thy commands, and from Thy judgments:

You gave Daniel the utterance that brought forth his great and effective prayer revealing Your plan even unto these “end of days.” Today, we seek prayer. We seek a spirit of prayer. We seek utterance.

Like the ones for whom Daniel prayed, this nation has sinned, and done perversely, done wickedly, and rebelled from Your commands and from Your judgments. We have murdered babies. We have walked in a general “forgetfulness of God…” This sin brought forth division, hatred, doubt and unbelief and every evil work. We failed our nation’s young ones by not teaching them of You. By not walking in Your Light and Your Love before them.

O Gracious Father, help us to a meaningful and true repentance. A spirit of repentance. Nationally. And individually. A true repentance resulting in merciful forgiveness.

We humbly and respectfully hold up to You, the-Covenant-Keeping God, Your covenant with this nation. Thank You for guiding our founders to establish this nation upon Your Word, Your commands, and Your judgments. Thank You for The First Great Awakening out of which America was birthed. In your mercy and grace, please grant us another now. With faith in Your promise as You have revealed Yourself we believe You for it.

Psalm 89:34

My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

O Lord, may You receive the Glory from the great harvest a Great Awakening will bring forth. Eternal souls for Your kingdom.

In the Name Above All Names we pray.

      Dear Billye Brim,
      G-D asked you to go to Azusa Street and pray as they were demolishing the building where the Great Awakening took place. When you shared how you prayed as the building was taken down to its foundation the Lord spoke to me and said, “ I had her pray over Azusa Street because it is on the the foundation of the Azusa awakening that I am building the Greatest Awakening.

      Myrna,
      I always pray for the Awakening to God in countries around the world.
      But today, the first Thursday in May, is recognized as The National
      Day of Prayer for America. Hence the focus of this prayer, on this day.

      Thank you Dr. Brimm for leading us in this prayer of repentance. Only when we become aware of how far we’ve missed it are our hearts softened to awaken to God. That’s what Jesus did in the Sermon on the Mount, showing us how much further from God we had drifted than we thought. And then the great harvest came!

    Dear Billy Brim, Thank you for your leadership in the Lord & your fellowship with the saints.
    A dear friend introduced me to your ministry this past year, gave me your book about Awakenings & sent me this prayer pattern yesterday. I totally agree with this prayer for our country.
    I am becoming gratefully aware that there are new depths for new heights…in the Word, in personal & Corp prayer, in revelation & insights…& a strong drawing unction with instruction. A reconnecting & reassembling of prayer warriors from former battles & seasons as far back as my rededication in 1982, for such a time as this & times yet to come…
    In January prayer I kept seeing the word RESET, the ”RE” in black letters & the ”SET” in red…with which I agreed in prayer with my inquiry for understanding. As I first noticed stories from Wuhan & began inquiring, I saw an ancient door with blood in the doorposts & lintel…as in the Exodus from Egypt & was reminded of the story of that plague…but I was disturbed that I had no fear nor unction to war regarding it.
    Concerned that I was either out of order or favor & missing something vital, I began to inquire among other Intercessors here in the West what instructions they were getting concerning the Wuhan news & shared the only two things I had been seeing.
    This is May 8, & history has unfolded…but, My concern remains that I still have no junction to war…! My heart is full of wonder, gratefulness, the joy of living & spending more time at home than in the office, free of guilt & fear…it’s like I’m in a bubble of sunshine & on a marvelous vacation to rest, relax & recouperate…
    I’m out of my depths here, wondering why I don’t feel guilty for not being in my prayer closet weeping at the steps of the temple or at the altar.
    Billye Brim, what’s the matter with me? You’re an Intercessor…have I ”lost it” & an I totally ”out of order” in need of deliverance?
    Although I have not been a bride since 1969 ending in 1976…this feels more like a time of romantic dating or like a romantic honeymoon time full of anticipation for me than anything else.
    Please advise…I would cherish your wisdom & insight at this time. Cath in WA
