Dear Lord in Heaven, do something drastic to shake Your people up, because so many of them are asleep. Jar them out of their complacency, apathy, coasting, and lukewarm states so You won’t need to “spew them out of Your mouth” (Rev.3:15,16).

By Your Spirit, Father, lead Your people to conviction, that they will cleanse themselves of all flesh and evil desires. Bring each to that place of conviction and repentance that they will be made ready for those “white clothes so that you may dress yourself and so the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed, and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I rebuke and discipline. Therefore, be zealous and repent” (Rev.3:18,19). 

For when the wedding of the Lamb arrives, The Bride must be ready, in order to receive the “fine linen to wear, bright and clean! For the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints . . . How fortunate are those who have been invited to the wedding banquet of the Lamb!” (Rev.19:7-9). Oh, Father, bring these ones to where they need to be in order to qualify as members of Your Bride

Make us to “be holy in everything we do. For it is written, “Kedoshim you shall be, for I am kadosh” . . . . live out the time of sojourning in reverent fear” (1Pet.1:15-17), in accordance with Your Word, not in accordance with the false doctrines of man and demons, that are teaching many that it’s ok. to live according to the pleasures of the flesh because Your Grace will cover it. Convict, & bring revelations of truth that these are lies of the Enemy, for when we know Your Truth, we are held accountable to walk in that Truth.

Make us all to put on the new man and live godly lives instead of attempting to rationalize, justify excuses, and walk in the spirit of the world instead of in the Spirit given by You, for we “know that we were redeemed from the futile way of life . .” (Pet.1:18); so let us now “purify our souls in obedience to the truth . . .” (1 Pet.1:22). 

Increase the numbers of Your people who will pass the test of being sifted (Matt.3:11,12). Prepare and multiply those who will pass the test of being sorted as sheep, and not being tossed aside as goats (Matt.25:31-33), I pray in Jesus/Yeshua’s Name. Amen.
