Awaken My Spirit: Prayer To Overcome Spiritual Slumber
👉👉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 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.
Luke 22:46 “Then He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation.””
Let Us Pray Against Spiritual Slumber
Heavenly and merciful Father, I come to you today feeling lost and disconnected from my faith. I feel as though I am in a state of spiritual slumber, and I am struggling to find my way back to You.
O Lord, I am in deep spiritual slumber. My prayer altar is cold, I struggle to spend time in Your Holy Word and I don’t do my quiet time anymore. I have allowed the cares of the world and the things I have been going through recently to weigh me down.
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.

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.
