Jer 29:11-13 NASB - "11 'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 'You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart."

Lord, long ago you gave rebellious Israel this promise.  That they would be revived and restored.  That even after calamity beyond their wildest dreams their would be a future and hope for them.  You promised that when they called and prayed you would listen with compassion and grace.  They would seek you and find you.  You would renew their hearts to a new passion for you.  

Lord today please come and revive and restore us.  Give us a future and hope in this generation to reflect your truth, love, and goodness before a watching culture. When we think we have lost everything help us to see that we have you.  Give us a hunger and thirst to seek you in passionate cries and prayer focused on your kingdom.  Renew our hearts with a desire for you above all other desires.  Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy.  Amen
