It is always God’s desire to save the lost, and to revive the hearts of His people with a fresh outpouring of His Holy Spirit. But, He amazingly looks to His people to cooperate with Him in prayer, petition and praise to accomplish His purposes. Ponder Hosea 10:12. Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you. Hosea stresses the importance of heart-preparation in preparing for the rain from heaven. We are admonished to “plow up” the soil of our hearts, and to seek the Lord until He comes. A man of God once wrote “The prepared heart becomes the praying heart that prevails with God.” Lord make my heart tender that your intercessions may be on my lips! Pour out Your Spirit!
