As a runner, I do a lot of praying as the Lord brings people, and situations, to my mind.  Recently, the Lord dropped this simple prayer onto my lap. You can use this R.S.V. prayer for someone who is struggling. Release. Restore. Revive. R.S.V.

Lord, RELEASE whatever is holding them from a closer relationship with you.

  • i.e. this could be an anything from an addiction, to a marital problem. Ask the Lord to release them from the issue.

RESTORE whatever was lost in their life.

  • i.e. If a marriage is broken, pray that God restores it.

REVIVE their heart.

  • God can bring life to what was once dead. Pray that God revives a relationship, or an individual.


May God use this prayer in a powerful way in your life, too!
