Will you join us in a special prayer for godly friends?
Heavenly Father, I recognize my need for godly friends. Give me the courage to step out in faith, taking the initiative to build godly friendships. I pray that You would put Spirit-filled people in my life and that we would point one another to You, seeking Your face together. Help us to cultivate a community that is devoted to Your Word, to fellowship, and to prayer—just like the early church. May the love we have for You and for one another be a witness to the world, drawing the lost to You. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
No, there is not a specific time to pray—but we encourage you to find a time that works for you!. To help you, Awake America provides weekly prayer updates via email and social media to prepare hearts and lives for revival. Click here to sign up for your weekly prayer reminder. When you pray during the week is up to you, but we encourage you to cover that week’s prayer topic sometime during the week you receive it. If you miss a week, just rejoin us the next week.
Awake America is a prayer movement formed by Dr. Michael Youssef. It is founded on one desire: to see God bring another Great Awakening to our nation.
Awake America began in 2020, just before a global pandemic rocked our world, and the prayer movement has continued to grow in the midst of unprecedented national division and unrest. Through Awake America, we have seen hearts transformed by grace, families and communities united in prayer, and souls saved.
This is just the beginning of Awake America as the Lord continues to call believers like you to UNITE FOR REVIVAL. Our desire is to see the Lord bring personal revival in the lives of believers that then leads to spiritual awakening in the lives of the lost—transforming our nation through the power of Christ.
