Send Revival, start with me.

It occurred to me today just how much people desparately want revival. I’m one of them!

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if people, young and old turned to Jesus and this nation was healed? 2 Chronicles 7:14 says,

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

The thing I get from this verse is that it isn’t primarily praying for people who AREN’T Christians… the primary thing is to pray for ourselves!

You see, revival happens in two stages: Revival of the Church, and then Revival of the Nations. It is up to us as the Church to ask for revival of ourselves, a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit on us, a new passion for the name of Jesus and a call to worship him in Spirit and in Truth before any outbreaking of revival can happen on those who don’t know the Lord yet.

If you have a burning desire for revival, then I suggest we join together in using the following worship song lyrics as our prayer:

We’re looking to Your promise of old
That if we pray and humble ourselves
You will come and heal our land
You will come
You will come to us

We’re looking to the promise You made
That if we turn and look to Your face
You will come and heal our land
You will come
You will come to us

Lord, send revival, start with me
For I am one of unclean lips
And my eyes have seen the King
Your glory I have glimpsed
Send revival, start with me

    Good stuff bro! We don’t want flashbang revival like those of old but we want perpetual kingdom advancement on a global scale where the gospel is preached and received accompanied by hand of the Lord in signs and wonders. Let the Church be the blueprint!
