Prayer Summary for May 11

We are so in awe of what You did on the cross for us
Thank You that we can come corporately together to worship and honor You
Father, we are blessed beyond measure for what You did and continue to do for us
You never stopped short, but You gave it all on the cross
The same power that raised You from the dead, is operating in and through us today
We love and honor Your precious Holy name—Jesus!
Your mercies are new every morning
Thank You for Your grace, Your kindness, and Your faithfulness
The following commentary is taken from The Revival Study Bible:
Rev. A.G. Osterberg’s Revival Account
The revival at Azusa Street led to the concurrent growth of churches in the Los Angeles area; one was pastored by Rev. A.G. Osterberg of the Full Gospel Assembly. Here is his eyewitness account of what happened in 1904:
I have been asked relative to the outpouring of the Spirit in the Azusa Street Mission, “What in your judgment was the outstanding spiritual phenomenon of the revival?” My reply was, “Without questioning the revival speaker’s own judgment, it can be answered in one word—tears.”
Having been a Christian since boyhood, my observation has been that the greatest hindrance in the entire realm of revivals is the hardness of heart and spirit. Its cause is spiritual rebellion against God, exercised in an embezzled human sovereignty. Among Christians, hardness of heart is probably the greatest single obstacle and hindrance to revivals. The Azusa revival began where every revival should rightly begin—in repentant tears. It began in tears, it lived in tears, and when the tears ended the Azusa revival ended.
Tears of guilt confession; tears of fault confession; tears in humble contrition; tears of self-denial and abnegation, in expression of soul humility, until high-mindedness was brought low; tears of sheer gladness and heavenly joy; Holy Ghost tears intermingling testimony and praise, often overflowing upon the congregation as a benediction from the battlements of glory. All the mechanical arrangements in the world would be unable to arrange such a program. All the great preachers of earth’s dominion could not accomplish it. It was inspired and divinely procured by the Holy Ghost.
Continued Praying…
We lift up our hearts to You, Lord, melt and mold them today
Humbling ourselves before You, Father
Bowing our hearts before You; do what You need to do through us, Lord
Thank You for the blood that was shed on the cross
The name of Jesus is above every other name, and we lift up that name
No, we will not stay the same, but we will continue to move forward in You
We surrender to Your presence today, Lord
Yielding our lives to the fullness of Your precious Holy Spirit
Inroads—ways to go and ways to flow
We are seated in heavenly places with You, Father
So much more is at stake; many decisions are yet to be made
Turn those ways; make those ways straight in Jesus’ name
Casting all of our cares and anxieties on You, Father
It is the time and the hour for greater authority, greater resources, and greater cooperation
Leaning not on our own understanding but we put our trust in You
You are making a way where there seems to be no way
Calling for an awakening in the Church—show them the ways they should go, Father
We will continually walk in the fullness of Your will and plan
Declaring that the right openings and the right doors would be opened
You are providing resources of every kind to walk out Your plan and purpose
It’s a mission, it’s a call, it’s a position, it’s a way!
Doors and opportunities be opened up in Jesus’ name!
You are revealing and uncovering those things to us today!
This is the time and the hour to move, and take those steps
The great migration is happening now!
Momentum of and by Your Spirit, dear God!
Gathering up those lost souls and bringing them into the body of Christ
Receive it this way, an increase in May!
You, Lord, are making a way where there seems to be no way!
It is time to get up and move out!
Orders, commands, and instructions are being transmitted from heaven today!
Lifting the words, and declaring them forth!
Church, get up and rise up in Jesus’ name!
We must respond; hear the voice and hear the sound—the alarm is going off!
A great migration to a higher land to a higher realm
Get ready; get into position for it is the time!
He has prepared us for such a time as this!
It is time to release assignments—we are ready, Lord
Elevate, escalate!
Bring strength to the body of Christ like never before
We ask for supernatural wisdom and guidance, Father
Divine interventions from heaven today!
No, anything but ordinary
Open, open, open those ways!
Get us through those narrow places, Father
Our help comes from You, and from You alone
No longer stationary, but moving in those right ways
By the power of the Holy Ghost, we will pick up the pace and finish our race
We have greater expectation, for the days of glory have come!
There is a shifting of Your Spirit, Lord
Reinforce the foundation and the base that is where the revelation comes from
Divinely inspired utterance of and by Your Spirit, Father God
Give us ears to hear and eyes to see, reveal Your plan to us
It is time; Father, let that command be heard
Praying for those hardened hearts to be softened
Turing over the old and making room for the new
You, Father, are preparing the Church
Those seeds will be planted, and we will water those seeds with the truth of Your Word
Time-released seeds; we call them forth at the right time
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for they shall be satisfied and filled
We are hungry for more of You, Lord
Calling for an awakening in the Church in the name of Jesus!
Prayers that have been sown are coming up in these last days
You hear our prayers, and we yield ourselves to Your draw, Father
Come Lord Jesus, come!
We desire and yearn for more of You
Thank You, Father, for what You are doing in these last days
Giving You all the glory, honor, and praise for it, Lord
