I Prayed have prayed
Father God, bring revival to us, to our families, our communities, our churches, our states and our nation. Give us more grace and the perseverance we need. Make us who You want us to be.

This piece by Dr. Michael Brown echoes what we are hearing from leaders and intercessors around the world.

Analysis. From Ask Dr. Brown. Every day, there are examples of Americans pushing back against the agenda of the radical left. And every day, there are more signs that there could be a major political reaction against the leftist agenda in the midterm elections. But even with the best possible electoral outcome, without sweeping revival in the church, America could still collapse.

That’s because America’s greatest problems are spiritual and moral first, leading to the larger societal, political, and economic challenges we face. But unless the heart is cured, the body will die.

One of my colleagues is an astute Christian attorney who has been on the front lines of the culture wars for decades, from the local courthouse to the Supreme Court.

He recently tweeted this to a small group of leaders: “Unless something dramatic happens, the midterms will be a blood bath for progressives. VA was the first canary in the coal mine. The San Fran recall shows the train is picking up steam. Biden’s appearance on J Kimmel was an embarrassment, and Kimmel had to intervene to rescue him from rambling and losing his train of thought.”

He continued, “A poll released today had his approval at 35% – lowest I’ve seen yet. If either chamber flips (and it likely will be both), it limits the harm he can do the last two years.”

But then, the major caveat – and the real thrust behind his text.

He wrote, “I think our biggest challenge may be communicating that a political reprieve is insufficient, and maybe even a distraction as a false sense of security; only a revival will save the nation. We’re fighting human nature. People are angry and frustrated. They will express it on Election Day and then settle back to life as usual, unaware the declining trend will continue. I’ve never seen so much focus on pride month as in this year, and the culture has largely caved into joining the celebration of sin. The election won’t do much to change that if there is not spiritual renewal.”

. . . [M]y colleague is not encouraging political passivity. Quite the contrary.

But he is reminding us that, even with a major shift towards the right and even with the potential of a Republican president and Congress by 2024, we will still have a massive amount of moral and cultural and spiritual rot at the core of America. Only a massive revival and awakening can turn the tide.

That’s why, when I wrote Revival Or We Die in 2021, there was not an ounce of hyperbole in the title. (The subtitle was A Great Awakening Is Our Only Hope, also without any hyperbole.)

That’s why it is imperative that we continue to emphasize the importance of personal and corporate repentance. And the centrality of prayer. And the priority of evangelism and disciple-making and church-planting. And the ongoing need to build healthy bridges of reconciliation.

That’s why we must keep the main things the main things. . . .

On January 4 of this year, I posted an article titled, “2022: The Year to Take Back Ground!

Since then, I have filed scores of articles and stories detailing that very trend. Americans are saying enough is enough on many fronts, and they are pushing back.

This is all encouraging and positive, and some of it is the direct result of men and women standing up for their spiritual and moral principles.

But, as we move closer to the midterm elections, we do well to heed my colleague’s concerns.

Isaiah 55:6-7 NIV
Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the power of your word. We humble ourselves before you in repentance, as we do, You are faithful and just to forgive us our sins and You cleanse us from all unrighteousness. You are true and faithful to your word. Thank you for healing Your church and we declare and decree that America will be saved. In Jesus most precious name.

How can another cheating and stuffing of the ballot boxes be prevented? My suggestion is that while we hope in CHRIST that we do not relax until after the elections. Satan won’t give up ground easily and so we had better not presume anything! President Trump WON the 2020 election, yet where is he? Not in the white house! Democrats have sold out to the god of this world and will lie, cheat, threaten, and kill to keep power. From now until November, we had better trust in the LORD and pray without ceasing until we see Victory! FATHER GOD please show us how and what to pray for deliverance for America in JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Amen!

Many, if not most, Christians are suffering from spiritual amnesia. We were complacent about and even complicit with the immoral slide the church took with our culture for decades. Now, the righteous Judge of the universe is allowing the fruits of our waywardness to be manifested and we pretend we are innocent. In Ezekial 22:30 the Lord looks for a person who will “stand in the breach before Me for the land.” We are between God and the land – the land behind us and the Lord in front of us. I cannot conceive of facing His fierce force. Praise You, Lord, for You are merciful to all! (Romans 11:32-33)

I agree whole heartedly.The Church has to repent and pastors have to speak out against this perverse culture.This is not happening.Why would God bless this nation that is full of spiritual rot?
I was at my clinic two days ago for a Dr Appointment and in the clinic by the nurses work desk was the pride flag.I was appalled.I have never in all my years of nursing been exposed to a pride flag in my Dr office.
There are so many Christians who think this life style is ok.
Can we slow down the rot?2Chronicles 7v14 “If my people Who are called by my name(The Church))will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face ,and turn from their wicked ways, and repent,then I will hear from heaven will forgive their sins and heal their land”.
God will not be mocked.If this doesn’t happen I am afraid God has abandon America.

    If GOD was willing to spare Sodom and Gomorrah if 10 righteous were found, I believe HE will spare and fight for America! Many saints have been praying night and day since the advent of covid and later the cheating election! There are many of us that has repented for America for years. My Bible tells me to put on the whole armour of GOD and TRUST HIM to deliver America! My Bible also says that HE won’t do anything except HE lets HIS prophets know. The prophets are not predicting destruction of America! We need to start speaking those things that be not as though they were; we need to believe that HE will continue to deliver us; and we need to trust our GOD with all of our hearts in JESUS NAME! Amen!

In the Bible, Paul and John did not speak in generalities when it came to lauding or condemning elements in the Christian church. They went right after specific churches and individuals.
I find lots of complaining going on but not pointing out the churches and people that are contributing to the rot in America.

Absolutely the truth. When people are comfortable, to include Christians, they sit back and take the foot off the pedal. Satan is not going anywhere anytime soon.
