Waking up after a long sleep is so refreshing to your mind and your spirit.  Just think that every night your body requires six to eight hours of rest  to get you ready to conquer another day.  Lately it seems like Christians are beginning to wake up to the fact that a worldwide awakening is the only solution to bring people to the Lord.  Sometimes it feels like the weight of the news is overwhelming and you just have to anesthetize yourself from it. No, it is time for the clouds to clear up and for you to fire up. A small spark can start a huge fire. Remember when you used to camp out and you had to start a fire without matches?  You found the driest sticks in the forest and rubbed them together with passionate determination. That is the same principal in prayer for a spiritual awakening.  You focus on a target and pray fervently.  Then, once you sense the peace of God, you praise Him and proclaim His Word - especially when your confidence starts to drift..  Kenneth E. Hagin used to say that the word is like a chess game.  In Phillipians 4:6-8, verse 6 is our move. 

“Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God..”

-So first you tell the Lord your requests and thank Him for His answer in advance….

Then verse 7 is the Lord’s move….

“and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus…. “.

He releases His peace on you as you do this…

Finally verse 8 is your move to seal your prayer…

“Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue, and if there is anything praiseworthy, think on THESE things.”

This will help to give you the jump start you need to rev your engines again and wake up…
