Praying Psalm 33: Prayer for National Revival

Psalm 33: A Prayer for Revival

Edward F. Lundwall,Jr.

“Let your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, just as we hope in you.” Psalm 33:22

O Father, I worship you above all else, as the psalmist exhorts, for it is your blessings that fills the earth with your goodness. As men's hearts recognize this, they prepared to hope in the eternal things of your Holy Spirit.

Father, I thank you that your special blessings can rest upon nations that truly embrace you as their God. What joy our nation and those of the world might experience if only we would sound forth your praises. Oh, if we might experience the increased peace that comes upon individuals and nations as they wait in faith upon you. Give us the spirit of meditation, that as we wait upon you, think upon our ways, and choose to humbly direct our steps in faith upon your paths.

Motivate our nation to turn to you. Help us to show men their need of Christ as Savior and Lord. For without spiritual rebirth, our hearts are not in the condition to either seek you, nor to receive abiding blessings upon our country. Let it be known that your abiding blessings are upon a nation when godly individuals exercise their hearts to make their ways reflect your ways! Let the light of those that love you shine so that our country might fully turn to you, that we might be forgiven, Lord, and be renewed through your abiding blessings rest upon us.

Oh, let me wait before you
Until the warmth of Your Love
Makes me glow with your fellowship,
Causing others to see your light
And rejoice in Him who is the Light of the World!
