God gave Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ and Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With a Mission (YWAM) a world-changing strategy in 1975. Keep in mind that both men are evangelists. Their work is evangelism and missions. (Bright has since passed away).
Their Spirit-inspired idea was to bring godly change to nations by reaching the seven spheres of societal influence. Bright and Cunningham concluded that in order to see transformation in nations, these seven spheres of society must be reached.
Those seven spheres are religion, family, education, government, media, arts & entertainment, and business. The goal is transforming revival that sees lasting change for the glory of God.
This month, Awakening Prayer Hubs is praying for revival on the seven mountains. Imagine if true revival broke out in these spheres of society? What if government officials, entertainers, educators and business tycoons got saved and their influence caused many to hear the Word of the Lord?
Revival Prayers for the Government Mountain
1 Timothy 2:1-3, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.”
Pray for revival in executive, judicial and legislative branches of governments. Pray for revival for presidents, dictators, prime ministers, chancellors, kings, queens, dukes and duchesses, chairmen and supreme leaders in nations around the world. Pray revival for judges, police departments, government agencies and all government workers.
Revival Prayers for the Media Mountain
Luke 11:34 tells us, “The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness.” The media fills our eye gates and ear gates with lies and darkness.
Pray for revival among newspaper, radio, and television staff, social media engineers and pioneers. Pray for revival in the book publishing realm, cable television and independent media.
Revival Prayers for the Entertainment Mountain
1 John 2:15-17 offers, “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
Pray for revival for satellite broadcasters, app makers, and those who influence the Internet, including Web 3.0 developers. Pray for revival among workers in the video game industry, artificial intelligence, book authors, and television and radio staff.
Revival Prayers for the Business Mountain
Deuteronomy 8:18, “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.”
Pray for revival among corporate leaders, leaders in the financial, technology, and healthcare sectors—and leaders in every major industry. Pray for small business owners, independent contractors and others in the business arena influence our economies.
Revival Prayers for the Education Mountain
Proverbs 22:6, tells us, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Pray for revival in school boards, school superintendents, principals and administration, faculty, staff, aftercare workers, and students. Pray for daycare facilities and staff. Pray for revival among those who write curriculum. Pray for revival among the bus drivers who transport the children. Pray for universities, deans, and presidents.
Revival Prayers for the Religion Mountain
In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Christianity is not the only religion. So, yes, pray for revival in Christianity, but also pray for revival to break out among the Muslims, Mormons, Buddhists, Hindus, Humanists, Satanists, Catholics, Judaism, Scientologists, Universalists and other false religions.
Malachi 4:6 tells us, “And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”
Pray for revival within the family unit. Pray for revival in spiritual families, work families, broken families, single-parent families, childless families, stepfamilies, and grandparent families.
