Pray Until Revival Comes!

I had a thought the other day,"What would it look like if this generation of men in our country were radically changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ?"

What would the effects be? Crime rates would go down significantly. The prison system would have less occupants. Foster Care would have no more children. The number of teen pregnancies and single mothers would drop. Abortions would become less and less common and Planned Parenthood would have no more business. Divorce rates would go down. Sex trafficking and the porn industries would have no more customers. Today's church pulpits would be filled with men who preach the true powerful Gospel. We would have more missionaries. More Evangelists. More A.W. Tozers. Leonard Ravenhills. Jim Elliots, John "Praying" Hydes. Hudson Taylors. C.T. Studds. William Wilberforces. Major Ian Thomas'. Keith Greens. Reese Howells.

It is time that we fall on our knees before God and pray until revival comes.

"But have we Holy Spirit power - power that restricts the devil's power, pulls down strongholds and obtains promises? Daring delinquents will be damned if they are not delivered from the devil's dominion. What has hell to fear other than a God-anointed, prayer-powered church?"

-Leonard Ravenhill

God cannot lie. His Word is Truth. He is faithful to do what He promises. God has promised in 2 Chronicles 7:14- "If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land."

We must pray. Pray for revival in our land. Pray for revival in our men today. Revival in our fathers. In our brothers. Husbands. Sons. Pray for Almighty God to revive dead hearts and awaken them to the power and victory in Jesus Christ.

Paul Washer says, "The mark of a Man of God is God upon the Man." Pray that the mark of God would be upon every soul in this generation.

"Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in days of old, the generations of long ago." -Isaiah 51:9
