“Prophetic and Strategic Prayer for National Revival.” by John Abiola

by Church Times

“Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?” (Psalms 85:6).

“Our loving Father, thank you for your Prophetic words of a national revival concerning our nation stating that it shall be fulfilled in our generation.

“Thank you, Lord, that by the revelation of words, revival always comes after a  desire and earnest seeking in addition to fervent prayers along with genuine repentance in our hearts. This will cause God to brood  His Spirit upon us. This also brings your glory, light, and power among your people, non-believers, and our land.

“Therefore, Heavenly Father, we humble ourselves in self-effacement to plead for forgiveness of our sins, and so we ask for mercy, deliverance, and revival of our souls, churches, communities, and land. We acknowledge that we are sinful, stubborn, stiff-necked, and rebellious.

Our condition is deplorable, we are dead, cold, worldly, and praying amidst ( prophesies and decrees for healing, miracles and prayers directed towards killing perceived human enemies). Lord, pardon us for our love for materialism, and worldliness, have eaten deep into us. We acknowledge our failure to be the light and salt that our land desperately needs as it is stated in your word.

“We accept that we are disobedient. We are an obstinate nation with regard to your words and ways. We totally live in hatred, bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, and vengeance, instead of showing love and forgiveness to one another and living totally in peace.

“We are involved in witchcraft, occultism, idolatry, and other evil vices and abominations. This has allowed Satan, religious spirits, demons, the god of Mammon, and other gods to take over our hearts and land. We concede that we can do anything to get position, power, fame, and wealth, we love the devil and what he offers more than You. Oh God,  heal our land and grant us your impeccable mercy and graciousness. Our sins are numerous to mention, we repent and promise to turn from our sins and evil ways back to your bidding.

“By the precious blood of Jesus Christ, clean our filthiness, give us your Spirit, and take away our stony hearts and spirits of iniquity, sin, corruption, crime, shedding of innocent blood, materialism, occultism, bondwoman, idolatry, sorcery, witchcraft, denominationalism, greed, pride, wickedness, deceit, bribery, indifference, rituals, injustice, idol-worshipping, kidnapping,  slothfulness, worship of the god of gold, sexual immorality and all other evil spirits ruling our hearts, our families, communities, churches, land and our social, economic and political organizations and institutions:  Police, Army, Customs, Navy, National law enforcement agents, Government, Business Organizations, Labour unions, Student bodies, Political institutions, religious organizations, Education Institutions, the Judiciary, Members of the diplomatic corps, social organizations, Financial Institutions, and others.

Oh! Lord, pour out your Spirit upon us and our land, revive us again

“Oh Lord that we may rejoice in You. In accordance with your words, “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so you will obey my laws and do whatever I command”( Ezekiel 36:25-27).

“I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sale, and will not remember thy sin”(Isaiah 43:25).

” For thou, Lord, art good and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon you”(Psalms 86:5) “… I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams, and on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy, and it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved”( Acts 2:17).” If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land”.( 2Chr.7:14).

Lord give us the grace to repent genuinely and return all the stolen goods to the right owners, and all funds we have stolen from government treasuries, all properties, positions… God, send your Holy Spirit and revival power upon our youths and higher institutions, secondary, primary, Bible schools, missions, and seminaries, and to other religious bodies and institutions, to produce deep repentance, conversion, and change of lives. Let this revival spread across denominational boundaries, break down denominational barriers for unity, love, and peace in Christ Jesus with righteousness and holiness, and spread the fire to other lands globally.

Henceforth, we begin to speak of sin and repentance in our churches, gatherings, meetings, and everywhere with urgency for our deliverance from the holds of Satan, demons, Christ second coming, abominations to escape hell, God’s judgement and for restoration of lost glory, light, and power to our lives, churches, communities, and nation.

Let this revival break hostility between races, tribal tensions, and religious war, and put an end to violence, killings, corruption, Insecurity, economic recession, terrorism, homosexuality, idolatry, religious apostasies, crimes, political upheavals, racism, diseases,  injustice, and other evil vices that are ravaging our land. Raise a new generation of leaders to carry the church forward, national leadership for a new and better nation for peace, security, socio-economic and political stability,  joy, and progress for every citizen.

My Lord Jesus, Saviour and deliverer, in accordance with God’s words in Eph.4:27 “Neither give place to the devil”. And also James.4.7 – “So humble yourselves before God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you”.

“I submit myself spirit, soul, body, mind, ear, eyes, thought, emotions, lifestyle, motives intellects, character, senses, etc. to my Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. So therefore, the devil, demonic spirits, and unclean spirits that have possessed my mind, thoughts, intellect, emotions, motives and other parts of my body, my family, community, and Nation get out now and never return back again.

“Henceforth God’s Spirit and power possess and direct my entire being, family, community, and territory now and forever. Dear God bless all citizens of our nation living in and outside the country. Help them return in multitude to rebuild the old waste places in our nation.

“Jesus Christ delivers our nation from the hold of captivity and Idolatry. Transform our bloody, corrupt, poor, and most dangerous nation to be a Christians into a developed and wealthy nation, drastically change her to be one the safest nations on earth, to also become a leading  Christian nation, specifically in the area of raising and dispersing disciples, missionaries, workers, and preachers to the rest of the world for the purpose of saving souls.

“Blessed Holy Spirit, direct the affairs of our leaders; both spiritual and political leaders to precipitate the growth, development, and progress of our nation. Holy Spirit raises a standard against all evil spirits, spells, and curses that have been released from the heavenlies, elements, sun, moon, air, sea, and satanic altars, shrines, and thrones upon our land to project wickedness, abominations, and other evil to hinder God’s purposes and plans from being fulfilled in our lives, churches and to hinder the redemption of our land. Reveal Christ as the Savior of the world to the persecutors of Christians through visions, dreams, and messages of the love of Jesus.

“Reveal yourself to all non-believers in our land to save their souls and to become Christ’s disciples. Also, deliver and set free all  Christians that have become captives in prisons and terrorist camps as a result of their faith in Jesus Christ. Oh Lord provide both the physical and spiritual needs of the persecuted Christians, refugees, internally displaced persons(IDPs), Intercessors,  prayer groups and movements, missionaries, missions agencies, Christian workers, and other Christian institutions, and all God’s faithful servants in their various callings, ministries, and fields across our nation and around the world who are labouring selflessly and tirelessly for the furtherance of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Christ to all the world, preparing and expecting His glorious return for the rapture of His Church.

“Thank you, Lord, I strongly believe by faith in Christ Jesus that His blood cleanses us from all sin, His sacrifice on the cross, our atonement for our sin. This holy sacrifice cannot be in vain.

Heavenly Father in accordance with your words,(Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assembled unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children: for the people wept”-Ezra 10:1). You have answered my genuine heart-cry and the passionate longing in my heart and also other people across our land and around the world that are praying for national revival, restoration, salvation of the lost souls and for the transformation of my nation in Jesus name. Amen.
