A New Year’s Prayer for Spiritual Revival
Bishop Gary Mueller

It’s a new year. A fresh beginning. A chance to start again.
Of course, we say the same thing almost every year and we too quickly seem to end up right back where we were almost every year. Which is why we need to start getting honest. Even if it means we see the truth about ourselves. Like the fact that we’re too busy making life about us and not about You.
And even if it means we see the truth about our church. Like the gut-wrenching reality that we grow smaller and older, struggle to reach the young, and fail to see lives, communities and the world transformed by the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are sorry, Lord. Truly sorry, Lord. Eternally sorry, Lord.
Speak the truth to us until we understand we are in a spiritual crisis because we don’t allow Jesus to be our Savior and Lord – as individuals or the church.
Help us get serious about spiritual revival rooted in Jesus’ unconditional, transformational and invitational love. Help us pray for it. Help us look for it. Help us celebrate it. And, most of all, help us be consumed by it.
Empower us to keep seeking Your way when we are tempted to shy away because spiritual revival has too many negative connotations for too many people, when we try to engineer it instead of receiving it as a gift from the Holy Spirit, and are lured into using it as a way of saving our churches instead of becoming Your church.
Come, Holy Spirit, come. Send the fire of spiritual revival. Bring us together as the living Body of Christ in a world that is so deeply broken. Grow us into a movement that welcomes all who long to be Christ-followers. Enable us to make disciples of Jesus Christ, who make disciples equipped to transform lives, communities and the world.
We pray this boldly in the name of Jesus, our Savior, Lord, Brother and Friend. Amen

Come, Holy Spirit. I yield my life to you in this moment that I might breathe in your saving love and exhale grace into the world. Today let my life be a testimony to the love that I have received through Christ, so revival might be sparked by my words and deeds. Lead me to the places and people You want to bless, I am ready to be your witness in the world. Come Holy Spirit, so I will be able to go in your name. Amen.

Gracious God, forgive me when I substitute church busyness for spending time with you and you alone.
Forgive me when it is my insecurities about achievement that drive me to do ministry instead of a genuine desire to serve you and your people. Forgive me when I seek the approval of others instead of allowing your perfect love to drive out all my fears of faithfully following you.
Through all the self-improvements of diet and exercise and time management which I have attempted multiple times, I realize that what I really need is not more self – I’ve got plenty of that – I need You. Please help me to ignore the distractions of life and competing with others so that I can enjoy your presence in my life and let that be more than enough for my life of faith in You.
Guide me to do what I need to do and be what I need to be in order to allow your Spirit to permeate my life. For the sake of Christ, I pray. Amen.
