Listen to today’s devo!

Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love, Lord, and grant us your salvation. (Ps. 85:6–7)

“I’ll have the spicy peanut curry with peas, carrots, and potatoes.” If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard those words come out of my husband’s mouth, I would be writing this from my own private island. At a minimum, he makes monthly trips from our home to a small, locally-owned Thai restaurant in the next town over—30 minutes away. He has never ordered something different. When pressed about his deeply rooted love for the meal, he smiled and said to me: “I could order this dish every single day until I die. It just doesn’t get old!”

For the psalmist, prayer for revival and God’s unfailing love does not grow old. His burden for it remains persistent. How do we acquire this burden?

Our time in God’s Word and prayer will foster a consistent and growing passion for revival, for the salvation of the lost and hurting. Our continued proximity to his unfailing love makes us increasingly aware of our need for it. Our prayers for revival on behalf of ourselves, our communities, and the world around us will reveal God’s salvation if we are bold enough to ask for it. When we truly experience the joy of this revival, we will continue to pray for it because it “doesn’t get old”!

Pray that God would reveal his mercy and salvation to us.
