Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper. – Jer 29:7

Praying for revival

From: The Ten Greatest Revivals Ever

But there have been certain seasons called revivals—when God has “poured His Spirit out on His people.” These times — also called awakenings — occurred when the presence of God is experience in powerful manifestations of the Holy Spirit. – J. Edwin Orr

When most people pray for revival, they are probably asking for a wonderful experience at church next Sunday at 11:00 a.m. But revival is more than a Sunday morning experience.

When you pray for revival, you’re asking God for life-shaking experiences that will cost you plenty. It’s agonizing because in revival you become terrorized over your sin and you repent deeply. It’s consuming because in revival you have no time for hobbies… for chores around the house… for work… for sleep. Revival crashes your Daytimer… interrupts TV times… demands your full attention… and wears you out.

Usually when we pray for revival, we’re telling God “sic ‘em” on the bad guys. Little do we realize that revival begins with us, the people of God.
