"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Calling People to Pray in Faith for National Revival by Greg Violi

The Lord is calling forth a people who will join hearts and minds to unite in faith and pray until the Holy Spirit fills the entire country with His presence.
I am asking any Christian that wants to join with me in faith and love and pray for at least 30 minutes a day between the hours of 6 – 8 a.m. or 9-11 p.m. Brothers and Sisters, it is time to believe God regarding his covenant promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land
2 Chronicles 7:14

The word for “humble” means to be humbled, to be subdued, to be brought down, to be low, to be brought into subjection, to humble oneself.
The word “subdue” means to break by conquering, to render submissive, to subdue as unto a stubborn child, to conquer, to reduce to mildness, to overcome, to soften, to melt and to reduce to tenderness.
“Turn” means to return, to turn back.

“Wicked“ means bad, disagreeable, unpleasant, evil, giving pain, displeasing, unhappiness, etc.

“Heal” means to heal, to make beautiful, healthful, healer, physician of men, hurts of nations, involving restored favor. Literal of persons, water, pottery, also healing of individual distresses and healing national defects or hurts.
I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that askethreceiveth; and he that seekethfindeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Luke 11:8-13
Father is wanting to give more and more of His Spirit to those who will ask and keep asking Him (the literal meaning).

But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea. For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

2 Corinthians 1:18-22
Every promise of God is an absolute yes in His Son! The Father has one very special promise for the Body of His Son:

And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both
in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 1:8

It is time for the body of Christ Jesus on earth to pray until they receive a full impartation of the Spirit and power of heaven so that they can and will reveal a Christ that is risen, ascended and exalted at the Father ́s right hand! This is the main purpose of the Promise of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It is not just for one ́s self, but it is given to the body so that an entire group or body can all be corporately filled and diffused throughout all of their beings and be molded together as a body on earth so that the world can see only one person alive and risen and living in his body!

If we will seek the Father in the name of Jesus, He (father) will answer and He will revive us and our country. He is waiting for us to humble, believe, pray, repent and wait until he fully answers our corporate united prayers!
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
John 16:23-27

Luke 24:49
Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

We are to continue in prayer, faith and thanksgiving until he rains righteousness down on us!

Conditions for National Revival

1st Condition

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Hebrews 11:6

As a proof our our faith, we must believe 2 things: That He is and that He is a rewarder of them that are seeking Him faithfully. The first condition is that every time we come to pray, we must believe that He is the great I am. The ever present all mighty covenant keeping God right at that very moment that we are interceding. He is! He is present and hearing and He is greater than all! We must also believe that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. In other words, we must believe every time we pray that He wants to reward us for praying to Him. We must believe that He is a rewarder. If you were brought up in a home where you were never rewarded, then it could be difficult to believe that God, your Father really, totally wants to reward you when you pray!

2nd Condition

We must be committed to praying at least 30 minutes a day for revival. In the natural realm, when someone has a task that he is committed to accomplishing, he will be determined to finish what he has committed himself to doing!

3rd Condition

We must seek and ask the Lord to show us the areas where we need to humble ourselves. Ask the Holy Spirit to show areas where your heart has gotten hard, Ask Him to show you all the stubborn, rebellious ways that you still are living under. Ask Him to show you where you are not subdued yet. Any judgemental attitudes to others or towards other cultures. Listen to what comes out of your mouth and you will see what is buried deep in your heart. Ask Him where you are not yielding to others, but you must have your way because you “know” that your way is better! Let Him break your self-will. Ask Him what wrongs need to be made right? What things have you done to others, like stolen, lied, gossiped, abused, etc.
Hosea 10:12

Ask mercy from God and forgiveness from others in any areas where you have hurt or dishonored others. (Parents, children or spouses). Make peace where it is possible to be at peace with all men.

Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love
and peace shall be with you.

4th Condition

2 Corinthians 13:11
Pray and continue to pray until He blesses you and your community or nation. Continue to grow strong in faith as you thank and praise God for hearing your prayers. Always thank and praise the Father for hearing your prayer (Philippians 4: 6-7) As you wait for the full manifestation of His Presence to come, continue to praise Him more and more.
But I will hope continually, and will praise You yet more and more.

5th Condition

Psalm 71:14 1 Chronicles 16:11
Seek His Face continually.
Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually. Constantly be expecting for His favor, mercy and
Presence to come to you personally. Keep Him always before you.
Psalm 16:8

When you sin or fail, immediately go to Him and ask mercy. Keep going back to Him again and again. Realize that His manifest Presence is the only hope for our nations! There is no other hope. The more we are seeking his face, the more that we will desire His character in us.Keep turning towards Him and not away from Him.

6th Condition

Turn from your wicked way. This means to turn from all self-centered ways of living and looking at others, especially those closest to you. Ask the Lord to show you how to demonstrate His kindness and love to others. God centered and others centered living, instead of self-centered living.

7th Condition

Keep expecting for more and more of the Holy Spirit (The manifest Presence) to fill churches, homes and the entire country. An extremely strong manifestation of his Presence and not just the Omni-Presence of God.

8th Condition

Listen, wait and be determined to obey any promptings, commands or thoughts that the Holy Spirit chooses to give you!
The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.] John 14:21 (Amplified Bible)

 Re: Calling People to Pray in Faith for National Revival by Greg Violi

I am belieiving for revival.
i have been praying for the gift of repentance in all the hearts of the churches.
It must start with us.
Father forgive us for all THE things we have allowed.
The abortions, same sex marriages, sex trafficking, the church acting like Galatians and Corinthians. Forgive us Father for misrepresenting your name in any way or form.
have MERCY LORD JESUS and send your fire to purify us we are your bride iron out the wrinkles LORD we repent we repent father send us another great awakening Send your warring angels to break the chains over us and our families. remove leaders who will not walk in the fear of you and put in the new wine with new wineskins.

 Re: Calling People to Pray in Faith for National Revival by Greg Violi

We have been standing on this scripture
For many years now believing God for

Intercession and repentance must be
made on behalf of the sleeping church.

There is a major shaking that will take
place that will be seen by many to be
the devil, but it is God that will be doing
the shaking.

Judgement must begin with the House of
God first before there is a nation wide
revival and awakening.

I praise God for the intercession that is
taking place in our state. The governor
has called for a corporate gathering in
Baton Rouge next week end which
will be a time of prayer and repentance
for our nation.

We must have a move of the Holy Spirit
in our nation. Not better methods or
programs but God's' manifest presence
that will result in a great harvest of
souls that will be birthed into the
Kingdom of God.
