Lord, Pour Out Your Spirit
I have been praying a simple prayer the last few months as I have been seeking the Lord and here it is….
“Lord, pour out your Spirit.” A simple, but powerful prayer that works when you pray it. It comes from Acts 2:17-21 where the Lord states that He will pour out His Spirit in the last days.
What are the last days? The last days started with the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ and they continue on until today and will end when Jesus Christ returns. We know we are in the last days because of the signs of the times that are all around. Some of the signs of the last days, the days right before the return of the Lord are:
– Violence will fill the land
– Corruption will increase
– Wars and rumors of wars
– Pestilence and earthquakes
– Fear will grow among the culture
– Financial instability
– False prophets and doctrines will arise
These are just a few of the signs of the last days before the return of the Lord happens. But one of the signs that will happen before the Lord returns is the subject I am speaking about today. It is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The Lord says in Acts chapter 2 that He will pour out His Spirit upon all flesh across the globe. So while chaos, corruption and violence fill the earth as in the days of Noah, there will also be an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Millions of people will be saved and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord. Many believers will rededicate themselves to Jesus. Many people will be delivered and rescued from the grips of addiction and sin. There is going to be a wonderful spirit of renewal and revival one last time before the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. So join with me and continue to pray this prayer until the Lord comes, “Lord, pour out your Spirit. Pour out your Spirit upon the United States, on marriages, on young people, at the workplace, at home, in our neighborhoods, in our communities and across the globe. As we pray this simple prayer, the Lord will answer and accomplish great and wonderful things for His glory and honor.
