Day 7 Devo: Repentance

Day 7 October 4, 2012

prayer for personal revival

Scripture for Reflection and Preparation

1 John 1:9 “9 if we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Mark 1:15
“15 ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of god has come near. repent and believe in the good news!’”

Luke 13:1-5 “1 at that time, some people came and reported to Him about the galileans whose blood pilate had mixed with heir sacrifices. 2 and He responded to them, ‘Do you think that these galileans were more sinful than all galileans because they suffered these things? 3 No, i tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as well! 4 Or those 18 that the tower in Siloam fell on and killed—do you think they were more sinful than all the people who live in Jerusalem? 5 No, i tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as well!’”


Revival begins when Christians repent of their sin and embrace holiness.


• Praise God for who He is

• Confess your sinfulness and need for cleansing

• Allow His Spirit to draw you near

• Listen as He speaks to you

Ask God to...

• Help you surrender every area of your life to Christ’s lordship

• Help you be aware of any sin in your life

• Help you be willing to give up sin in your life

• Help you change any patterns in your life that tempt you to sin

• Help you make strong Christian friendships that encourage you in holiness

• Help you live faithfully

• Help you to be an example of holiness to others


• Thank God for hearing you

• Trust that God is at work to accomplish His will
