Why Pray with Jesus?

Since the earliest days of European interest in the Americas, God’s people have sought a place to worship in freedom and longed to experience spiritual awakening. Along the way, God has chosen a variety of places and people to awaken the nation for Christ: the colonial village of Northampton, Massachusetts; the Cane Ridge Camp Meeting; New York City’s Bowery district; a renovated livery stable on 312 Azusa Street in Los Angeles; and your world. You are a vital link to the next great awakening looming on the horizon of America in our generation.

Indicators of Awakening

Each occurrence of nationwide revival has been different, yet one common denominator has always been evident: a sense of hungry, prayerful desperation. In 2008, an Awakening America Alliance leadership summit was called to reflect on the First Great Awakening and the potential for a contemporary nationwide transformation. Recognizing that true awakenings bring visible change, twenty indicators of awakening were identified and now serve as an evaluation tool for awakening in America.

The Praying with Jesus resource is structured so that your prayer moments will coincide with each of these twenty indicators. Jesus cares about these topics; He prayed they would be true of us, so let’s join Him in prayer.

Why pray with Jesus? Because as we agree together in prayer, God can supernaturally bring a divine reversal from darkness to light in the hearts of people who have not experienced His grace. The power of extraordinary, united prayer cannot be overstated. Let’s unite our voices with Jesus and experience a Christ awakening in our land!
