Prayer Summary for August 1


The following excerpt is taken from From Holy Laughter to Holy Fire by Michael L. Brown:

Jesus, the Pearl of Great Price, the Center of Revival

Jesus, my best Friend, my Savior and Lord, my Master and King, the Christ, the Anointed One, the Messiah, the Son of the living God, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Author and Finisher of our faith, the Vine, the Bread of Life, the Water of Life, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, the only Gate, the Good Shepherd, the Great Shepherd, the Chief Shepherd, the lily of the Valley, the Fairest of Ten Thousand, the Word of God, the I Am. There is none like my Lord!

He is the image of the invisible God, the Ruler of all Creation, the Firstborn from the dead, the king of kings and the Lord of lords, the One who holds all things together by his powerful word. He is Jesus, my closest and most wonderful friend. He alone is worthy of praise!


We are thirsty for revival!
Lord, we want more of You
We know You are our best friend, and You are the way maker!
You are wonderful and beautiful!
Jesus, we are in love with You
We believe in the cleansing power of the blood!
Thank you for showing us where to go and what to do
We love that there is always more in store for us in You
We will not pull over and stop—each one of us has a call and purpose!
Lord, we want to be open, yielded, and on fire for You!

Fit for the Master’s Use: A Portrait of the Servant

5) The servant of the Lord is highly flammable. Some things are combustible, other things are not. Dry wood burns; water puts the fire out. It’s the same with electricity. Some things are good conductors; others are not. High-voltage wires can carry quite a shock; thick rubber will stop the watts in their tracks. So also in the Spirit: A pure heart is easily ignited; unbelief and sin will quickly quench the flames. A holy fire will transmit the Spirit’s jolt; the flesh will blunt the force. What about you? What is your spiritual composition?

Missionary Amy Carmichael had prayed, “Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God.” Jim Elliot, martyred by the Auca Indians, expanded on this:

God makes His ministries a flame of fire. Am I ignitable? God, deliver me from the dread asbestos of “other things.” Saturate me with the oil of Thy Spirit that I may be a flame. Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God.

Are you combustible?

There had been months of prayer for revival in the parish of Barvas in the Hebrides. A group of men met three nights a week, praying until four or five in the morning. Still, ignition was not achieved until a young deacon stood up one night and read from Psalm 24:

Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in His holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord. (Ps. 24:3–5a KJV)

Duncan Campbell describes what happened next:

He read the Psalm again, then faced his praying companions with these words: “Brethren, we have been praying for weeks, waiting upon God. Now I would like to ask, Are our hands clean? Are our hearts pure?”

In the wee hours of that morning, the Spirit of God swept into the barn. Had you gone there at four you would have found three of the men in a trance, prostrate on the floor. They had prayed until they passed out of consciousness.

The revival had begun. The fire was beginning to burn. Combustion was realized! Sin had been removed. Are we ready to burn?

Speaking of His forerunner, Jesus said, “John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light” (John 5:35). Speaking of us all, Wigglesworth exclaimed, “Oh, if God has His way, we should be like torches, purifying the very atmosphere wherever we go, moving back the forces of wickedness.”

Continued Praying…

Lord, pour out Your fire upon us again
We are asking for revival in us and corporately
We want to see the body of Christ lit up!
Lord, we are so thankful for the precious blood of Jesus
Thank You that every detail is covered in it!
Right now, Your blood takes away the curse and heals every disease
Your blood heals the broken hearts and transforms our lives
We know every denomination must be revived
We still believe—ONE NATION UNDER GOD!
Your blood is sufficient for our nation
She is coming up in Your truth, Lord, and we know the blood is working!
It is keeping the destroyer away
And it’s purifying and invading families, school, and ministries
Father, we are thankful to see the unwrapping of Your Spirit through the Church!
We believe we are going from one degree of glory to another
Our eyes are fixed on You, and we will not come down!
Thank You for Your faithfulness to every generation
We thank You for the Holy Ghost who helps us navigate and move through this hour
You lead us into all truth
By Your Spirit, we hold the blood against blockages and stumbling blocks—they shall be removed
A free flow now!
Your Word shall be preached!


The following commentary for Acts 2–5 is taken from The Revival Study Bible:

Eight Thousand Minus Two
Acts 2–5

In the midst of revival addition, God will also do some subtraction. God is excellent with numbers. He spoke to Abraham about his children in Genesis 13:16. He set a specific number on the troops in Gideon’s army in Judges 7:4-7. God has all the starts numbered (Ps. 147:4) and He even counts toes (2 Sam 21:20). “Even the hairs of your head are numbered,” said Jesus in Matthew 10:30. Indeed, one whole book of the Bible is titled “Numbers.”

Everybody loves God’s addition. Remember Hezekiah? On his sickbed, Hezekiah prayed for healing and the Lord added fifteen years to his life (2 Kings 20:6). Matthew recorded Jesus saying that all the things we need will be added to us, if we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matt 6:33). We like God’s addition.

God is also excellent at subtraction. God will often take away in order to multiply. He will often pluck up in order to replant. God will cut down and unfruitful tree in order to make room for a fruit-bearing tree (Luke 13:6-9). Likewise, He will prune His Church in order to bring new growth.

Just as the early Church was about to spring forth and multiply in great number (the Church already numbered around eight thousand), there arose two greedy hypocrites. God killed them both, in church! You do not lie to God and get away with it. Yet this sudden subtraction made way for multiplication. Holy fear swept the land and many were added to the Church daily. Why? Because God subtracted. The grave of Ananias and Sapphira served as part of the fearful foundation of the early Church.

Will you be part of God’s addition or subtraction? When God sends revival into your life, will you be added to, or subtracted from? Will God have to remove you to move on, or will He be able to multiply to you and through you?

Continued Praying…

We respond to the working of Your blood
Make adjustments in our lives that there may be great increase in the Church
Make our hands clean, Lord, that we may love what You love and hate what You hate
Enlarge our hearts to believe for the Church to arise in her believing
Calling for miracles among our armed forces and police departments
We watch as we pray!
We take our place by faith, right now
Lord, we believe in and reverence You!
For people to set aside their phones and computers and look to You
Jesus, be Jesus in us!
We believe in Your power and anointing—lead, strengthen, and help us!
Lord, we choose life!
We think on, receive, and enter into Your presence, for in it, we are changed!
You get all of the glory and honor
Thank You for Your goodness and mercy
