Throughout my lifetime of prayer, the Lord has asked me to pray some pretty outrageous prayers and make some extremely bold prophetic decrees. I have always possessed a hungry heart for more of God. That passionate longing has produced obedience (sometimes radical), which has led me into some amazing adventures with Him, helping to fuel my growing revelation of His heart and His ways.
“And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.” (Acts 4:31; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Look what happened when the early church prayed together! Listen to what some are experiencing today! Tell the Lord you want in on this kind of miracle working boldness!
- Passionate longing comes from time spent talking to God. More than rote prayers or casually uttered ones, ask God to give you passionate prayers!
- Read the first 4 chapters of the book of Acts today. Can you see that we need awakening in our nation? Ask God to give us a fresh outpouring of His Holy Spirit as in the book of Acts!
A prayer you can pray:
Father, I love reading the exciting stories in the Bible. I want to know these things are things we can see in our day and time. Teach me to pray passionate prayers that shake my neighborhood and change my city and shift the government of my nation. I believe you can do today what you did in the book of Acts! Thank you, Lord! Amen.
Passionate prayer can change this nation!
