Prayer Summary for January 9

A Word of the Lord came forth:

“Don’t lose heart because I’ve given you a fresh start! As you have stepped over into a new year, you will also step over into more spiritually, too. Look up and look out, I have given you a new clout! Receive it, believe it, and now you will begin to see it!”


The following excerpt is taken from Revival Fire by Wesley Duewel:

Will another great revival come? It is never too late for God. If we will fulfill God’s covenantal conditions, we will see God’s covenantal promises fulfilled. So the question is not so much, “Will revival come?” but rather “Will we meet God’s covenantal conditions for revival?”

Is it God’s time? Just as it is always God’s time to save, it is always God’s time to give revival. Just as surely as “now is the day of salvation,” so surely now is the day of revival, for now is the day of grace. It may take time for us to meet God’s conditions, to prepare the way of the Lord, and to pray until we win the battles in prayer warfare. But God does not delay revival because He is arbitrary. He does not need to be begged.

The 1905—1909 revival was probably preceded by prayer and hunger on a more international scale than any previous revival. God’s blessing was poured out in more nations than in any previous revival movement. But never in Christian history has there been such a longing for renewal in so many parts of the world and by people from so many denominational backgrounds as there is today.

Surely this hunger is the result of the Holy Spirit calling God’s people to prayer. There have been more books written on prayer than ever before. More organizations and more denominations have called for a year of prayer or a year for revival than ever previously known. Undoubtedly the Holy Spirit is calling God’s people to their knees. Undoubtedly He is guiding His people to join Christ our great High Priest in His great longing and holy determination to see another great revival. Undoubtedly the Holy Spirit Himself is groaning in prayer today for revival in the church (Rom. 8:26).


Father, in Your mercy let us respond to Your call in a new and fresh way
We must throw away the business of the day and our own ways and respond to Your Spirit
You are working in this New Year
People saying, “The Holy Spirit has called upon me to pray!”
For the Church to become a house of prayer
Thank You for the privilege of speaking to us in the night time
Encouraging us to pray for the leaders
Rescue the leaders out of religiosity and let them run to You
That there would be a great marching together as the army of God


The following excerpt is taken from In the Day of the Thy Power by Arthur Wallis:

The Latter Rain of Promise

Already some of the great revival promises of the Old Testament have been quoted. They could be easily multiplied. Let us take the familiar chapter of Isaiah as an example: “The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing; the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon: they shall see the glory of the Lord, the excellency of our God. Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. And the glowing sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water” (vv. 1–7).

The promise of revival, however, is not confined to the Old Testament. The verse just quoted, “I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground,” has its New Testament counterpart: “If any man thirst, let him come unto Me and drink . . . as the [O.T.] Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water” (John 7: 37, 38). The teaching in both passages is the same, and it is the whole principle of revival: the personal thirst—assuaged by the water of the Spirit—resulting in an overflow of blessing.

Next in order there is the statement of Peter on the day of Pentecost referred to in the opening chapter: “In the last days, saith God, I will pour forth of My Spirit upon all flesh” (Acts 2: 17), where he relates the Joel prophecy to the age of the church. This must be considered more fully in a moment. There are the further words of Peter in his address in the porch of the Temple: “Repent ye therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, so that there may come seasons of refreshing from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send the Christ” (Acts 3: 19, 20). The order set forth here is important. Firstly, repentance and turning to God; secondly, seasons of refreshing from His presence; thirdly, the return of Christ. Here is the promise of revival, “seasons of refreshing,” before the return of Christ, and as definite as the promise of the return itself.

James puts the matter beyond doubt when he says, “Be patient therefore, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient over it, until it receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord is at hand” (James 5:7). Do we long for the day of harvest? Do we grow impatient for the coming of the Lord? It is as though the apostle would curb our restless spirits, and enjoin us to be patient by reminding us that the heavenly Husbandman has been waiting all through the long seasons, waiting for the fulfilment of His purposes, waiting or the precious fruit of the earth at the time of harvest. We must be imitators of “the God of patience,” who has been waiting so much longer than we have. The Husbandman knows, and those also who labor as His servants should know, that before the final harvest day can dawn at the coming of the Lord the fruit of the earth must receive the early and the latter rain. If we in this day can look backward to the former rain, we have still to look forward to the latter rain, the final epoch of the age, prior to the day of harvest.

Continued Praying…

Father, our eyes are upon You and Your promise
We know Your arm is not short!
Lord, we will not quit believing and expecting
We know we will see many come into the body of Christ and we will finish this race
Father, we are expecting to see activity in the Spirit and in the natural realm
There are many anointings and gifts that are to be released in these days
We believe for the unwrapping of them
With joy unspeakable we will run the race
Lord, You said to pray for those in authority—we pray for them
Strengthen their knees and lift their hands
New clothing to run their race
There is a leaving behind of the old and a taking up of the new
By the Word and the Spirit, we stir the ingredients for these last days
The body of Christ as a whole working together and stirring the pot
We need that gift, and we need that supply
Declaring that numbers are increasing and favor is growing
The doors are wide open so come in and get in your position and place
Unlocking every door and calling for more!
Father, let us be vessels and epistles written for all the world to see
That You would be glorified in the Church!
Nothing but You can satisfy us!
Thank You for Your love, tender mercies, goodness, grace, and kindness
Father, we lift up the word “Finish”
We know the reward is in the completion of the plan
Believing for every gift and every supply to finish its course
For each one to continually abide in Your presence
Father, thank You for Your presence and the anointing that is present within each one of us
We will finish and be patient!
