John Piper praying for something extraordinary for the sake of the glory of Christ

Father, we together now renounce–I do pray that these friends would do this with me–renounce all self-reliance; we renounce all vain glory; we renounce pride; we renounce greed, covetousness; we renounce cowardice and fear of man; we renounce lust and those pornographic things that threaten to sweep our brains away even this morning; we renounce anxiety about what’s going on at home and ask for freedom; we renounce sinful anger and bitterness at people in our church and spouses who disappoint, mom who doesn’t understand at all what I’m dreaming; we renounce Satan and all his works and all his ways. And together now collectively we submit to Christ; and we submit to your Word; and we ask for the Holy Spirit to brood over these thousands that something extraordinary would happen here for the sake of the glory of Christ and the good of the Church and the reaching of the nations exceedingly and abundantly beyond everything we have dreamed, and we have dreamed much. So, come, come, Holy Spirit. I ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

John Piper
