Last February, the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s (ERLC) Research Institute was having its semi-annual meeting. During that meeting, the research fellows (scholars from various academic disciplines) concluded that American society was bedeviled by serious problems that ultimately could only be successfully addressed by a widespread spiritual revival.
The eventual result of those discussions was the 40/40 Prayer Vigil. The ERLC has partnered with Southern Baptists’ North American Mission Board to promote the 40/40 Prayer Vigil for Spiritual Revival and National Renewal.
The Prayer Vigil’s first focus is on “Personal Revival” with daily Scripture passages and prayer points on hunger for God and for personal repentance. The second focus is on “Church Revival,” and the third is on “Revival Among Church Leadership.”
Next, the vigil’s focus shifts to prayer for “National Revival” and “National Renewal.”
Finally, prayer is offered regarding “Wisdom for Public Officials,” and “Wisdom to Elect the Best Officials.”
Then each of the prayer subjects of the previous 37 days are recapitulated in the 40 hour prayer vigil which concludes the 40/40 Prayer Vigil for Spiritual Revival and National Renewal. All the prayer vigil materials are also available in Spanish.
