Stir Me, O Lord!

Stir me, O stir me, Lord, I care not how;
But stir my heart in passion for the world:
Stir me to give, to go, but most to pray;
Stir, till the blood-red banner be unfurled
O’er lands that still in heathen darkness lie,
O’er deserts where no cross is lifted high.

Stir me, O stir me, Lord, till all my heart
Is filled with strong compassion for these souls,
Till Thy compelling “must” drives me to prayer;
Till Thy constraining love reach to the poles,
Far North and South, in burning deep desire;
Till East and West are caught in love’s great fire.

Stir me, O Lord! Thy heart was stirred
By love’s intensest fire, till Thou did’st give
Thine only Son, Thy best-loved One,
E’en to the dreadful Cross that I might live;
Stir me to give myself so back to Thee
That Thou can’st give Thyself again through me.

Stir me, O stir me, Lord; for I can see
Thy glorious triumph day begin to break;
The dawn already gilds the Eastern sky!
O Church of Christ, awake! Awake!
O stir us, Lord, as heralds of that day!
The night is past, our King is on His way!

“His father Isaac answered him; your dwelling will be away from the earth’s riches, away from the dew of heaven above. You will live by the sword and you will serve your brother. But when you grow restless, you will break his yoke from off your neck” Gen 27:39-40

Many people, like Esau, have had a life programmed for difficulties. They have a yoke placed on their shoulders thus there is a limit they can’t go beyond. This can be through unbroken curses, and so they need to break the yoke binding them before they cancel any curse spoken against them. Anytime they want to break through they find it difficult. They have yokes of limitations placed their way by the devil, in the spiritual realms. Their life is characterized by lack, pain, fear, hopelessness, poverty, disease, failure etc. Many have tried to break through but have failed, while others have. You don’t have to be yoked with this. Esau was told by his father the secret of breaking free from this yoke- he had to be tired of it and grow restless. You should be restless until your heaven opens. Arise, ask the lord to reveal to you the yokes in your life, and break them in Jesus name. Speak to every yoke, early in the morning, day time and even at night. Demand every yoke be broken. Mention it by name and persist in your prayers till dew from heaven relocates you. Craft deadly prayer points like:

  • You yoke of defeat over my life, break in Jesus name
  • I command the yoke of fear to break in Jesus name
  • I break every yoke of limitation in my life in pieces in Jesus name
  • I command every invisible yoke in my life to catch fire and burn to nothingness in Jesus name
  • Lord, anoint me with the anointing that breaks every yoke of the enemy
  • I break loose today from the yoke of lack (mention any other that you feel led to) in Jesus name
  • I will not be yoked together with demons of lust, defeat, fear (mention what you think is binding you). I break your yoke now in Jesus name.
  • I release myself to unlimited divine breakthroughs in Jesus name

Don’t give up. Remember to PUSH

P –Pray

U- Until

S –Something

H- Happens

The breaking of your yoke will set you free to your divine breakthroughs, in Jesus name.

PRAYING FOR REVIVAL

PRAYING FOR REVIVAL

A revival is a sovereign act of God when he visits his people in a divine way. It is characterized by people humbly seeking the lord, forgiving and stepping beyond their comfort zones so as to be used by God as agents of change in their generation. When revival fires start to fall, preaching becomes fearless, the presence of the Holy Spirit becomes powerful, bring strong convictions of sin, mass repentance and healing.

History reveals that true revival leaps beyond the walls of the church to transform the society. During the Welsh revival for example, for a time, crime disappeared. There were no rapes, no robberies, no murders, no burglaries, no embezzlements, and so the judges had no cases to try. It is reported that the District Consuls held emergency meetings to discuss what to do with the police, now that they were unemployed.

We need God to visit us again in our day. We need God to reverse the moral decadence in our society and our generation. Crime, abortion, divorce, suicide, drug addiction, alcoholism, teen pregnancy, lust, pornography, fornication, sodomy and adultery are rampant in our generation. The church is asleep. It is majorly characterized by wealth and greed. We have forsaken the first love (Rev 2:4-5). The love of many has waxed cold. The church is neither cold nor hot. Jesus said “I am about to spit you out of my mouth” Rev 3:16. Why? Because we are tasteless and repugnant.

Many think that all is well. Many have been consumed by greed and desire for titles and recognition. “You say , ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing’. But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked” Rev 3:15-17.

We surely need God to visit us once again. We would wish to see God honoured in our nation, not being put in the same category with other gods. Only a visitation of the lord will transform our land. We need healing. We need God to visit idols exalted in our nation and crush them.  We need God to destroy corruption, tribalism, nepotism, racism, impunity and injustice in our land.

Only God can bring a change and transformation upon our young generation, which the devil wants to destroy completely. We need God to visit our institutions and transform them by his power. We need healing in our land today, and only God can do it. God told Solomon

“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chr 7:14

The answer is not going to come from politicians, or academicians, or cleverly crafted constitution. We can’t turn to our courts. We already know how corrupt they are. Many of their decision already are leading the nation away from the traditional biblical values, bringing curses upon us. Or shall we turn to education? We know that Germany and Japan are the most literate nations in the world, but they were the ones largely responsible for world war 2. Our education system has taken God out of our text books. It teaches evolution and denies the biblical view of creation. There is also moral relativism which is destroying our youth. We can’t either turn to the government which becoming increasingly corrupt. We hear of scandals after scandals. Our business and professional people will be of no help. A hand shake, a promise or a pledge means very little anymore. They are depicted as greedy who are out to rip us off. The media on its part has adopted sensationalism, instead of solid, responsible reporting. It is a tool for the affluent and the politician. The church is also part of the problem. It is also becoming as competitive as the political world. Ministers have been caught in sexual sins, divorce courts, and flamboyant attires, not to mention great mansions and sleek cars at the expense of the congregation do these people really love you or your wallets?

The answer is with “my people”, that is, the believers. If we shall call upon the name of the lord, he will move his hand and use the people who are in charge of given institutions to effect the changes we need. We have an option to sit down and watch as things move from bad to worse, or encourage ourselves and seek the lord.

We need to seek the lord in humility, we need to repent of sins we have committed, sins of omissions and commission. We need to be grieved by sin. We need to deeply repent on behalf of our people. We should be ready to turn from the evils we have been committing. It is only after doing so that we can move the eyes of the lord to us, and make God’s ears be attentive to our cry. He who made the hearing ear will hear, he who has made the seeing eye will see (Ps 94:9). We need times of refreshing to come upon us. We should seek God to quench the desire for sin in our generation. You need to seek the lord to do this, and remember, ask the lord to begin with you! This will be done only through prayer and fasting, be among the number God is going to use. Remember, God will still raise others to cry to him if you fail to take up the challenge, but woe unto you for refusing God’s assignment.

TAKE COURAGE

Keep on praying. Courage brother

If while on your knees praying for the one you would have reconciled to God, you could but see what is passing in his soul – the wrestling, the remorse he strives vainly to stifle, the work of the holy spirit going on in his heart, gently but firmly triumphing over the will – how earnestly, how incessantly would you continue to pray?

Courage, then. The ground may seem dry for cultivation, but each prayer will be as a drop of water. The marble may be very hard, but each prayer is like a hammer’s stroke that wears away the roughness.
