Prayer For Today – ✊🏼Prayer Against Spiritual Slumber

Patreon Supporters: Click here for audio

There are periods and seasons in our lives where we fall into spiritual slumber. We neglect the secret place and start slacking in our personal fellowship with God. We stop spending time meditating on the Word of God, and our prayer life dies down. We retreat into deep slumber.

The Bible says we should watch and pray. We can’t afford to slumber because we won’t be able to watch or even pray.

Luke 21:36 says, Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.

And Luke 22:46 Then He said to them, β€œWhy do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation.”

Let Us Pray

Awakening from Spiritual Lethargy

Father God, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, I come before You in humility, recognizing my tendency to drift into periods of spiritual slumber. I acknowledge those times when I’ve allowed the cares of this world, the pressures of daily life, and even the subtle deceitfulness of the enemy to lure me into a state of spiritual drowsiness.

My passion for You begins to wane, the flames of my spiritual fervor diminish, and the hunger for Your Word subsides. I find myself neglecting the sacred secret place and the intimate moments we used to share. Lord, it pains my spirit to admit that I have sometimes placed other things above my relationship with You.

I recognize, O Lord, the consequences of this spiritual slumber. When I distance myself from You, I become more susceptible to the snares of the enemy. The protective shield of faith starts to crack, and the enemy finds footholds to sow doubt, fear, and apathy in my heart.

I neglect Your Word, and my prayers become shallow or non-existent. I deeply desire to break out of this cycle, to rekindle my passion, and to reawaken to the vibrancy of a life rooted in You.

Romans 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

Ephesians 5:14 Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.

The Urgency of Spiritual Vigilance

Lord, Your Word admonishes us to watch and pray, for in doing so, we guard our hearts and spirits against the adversities of this world and the schemes of the devil. In my state of spiritual slumber, I’ve left myself vulnerable, failing to maintain that vigilance.

I’ve become less alert to the spiritual battles that rage around me, and I’ve neglected the armor You’ve provided for my protection. This lethargy not only affects my personal walk with You, Lord, but it also impacts those around me. I may miss opportunities to minister, to intercede, or to stand in the gap for others.

I earnestly seek Your forgiveness, Lord, and plead for Your intervention. Stir up in me an urgency to remain spiritually awake.

Let the winds of Your Holy Spirit breathe upon the dying embers of my faith, reinvigorating my commitment to study Your Word, to engage in fervent prayer, and to seek Your face consistently. Lord, I don’t want to be caught unaware.

Equip me to stand firm, to watch, and to pray, understanding the times and seasons according to Your divine plan.

1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

Trusting In God’s Loving Care And Plan

But Lord, I know that you are always with me, even in my darkest moments, and I trust in your loving care and guidance. I pray that you would awaken my spirit and bring me back to a place of connection with you.

My God, You are a merciful God. Awaken me, Oh Lord, from this spiritual slumber and set my feet upon the Rock. Make me a watchman and a light bearer that is always alert and prayerful. Help me to put on the armor of light in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.

Romans 13:11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.

Seeking Guidance And Strength To Live Out Your Faith

I pray that you would give me the strength and courage to face any challenges that may be holding me back from fully living out my faith. Help me to turn to you in all things and to trust in your plan for my life.

I ask for your guidance and wisdom as I seek to grow closer to you and to live a life that is pleasing to you. I pray that you would give me the grace and the strength to overcome any spiritual slumber and to embrace your will for my life.

β€œBut those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” – Isaiah 40:31.

β€œAwake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.” – Ephesians 5:14.

Ignite Me

Dear Lord, ignite me with your fire again. Ignite my prayer altar with fire. Let me burn for You again. As I cast all my burdens, worries and cares upon You, may Your peace which surpasses all understanding guard my mind and heart.

May my lamp relight again. May my passion for the word come alive again. I ask in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

1 Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.

1 Thessalonians 5:8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.
