Father God, I ask that You would release the spirit of conviction upon the hearts of men once again. Let there be a deep conviction of sin. Many have become politically correct and are operating in fear of man , which You said is a snare. They are leaving the truth of the gospel as they cling to earthly things and thoughts. I pray that leaders will preach the truth of Your Word once again and that Your saints would arise in love, honor and obedience. Let the anointing of the refiner's fire be released in Your church. Purify and burn out anything in our hearts that is not like You. Your Word says that the product of godly sorrow is repentance. Lord God, I pray that the body of Christ will come to true repentance, confession and action. I pray that true spiritual brokeness would return to the church. Let there be a return to Your fast as You proclaimed in Isaiah 58. Your fast is to loose the chains of injustice and untie the yolk, to set the oppressed free.
