If genuine revival is to come, we must prayer.   History verifies this…

In Wales, the 1859 revival was preceded by earnest prayer in the churches.  William Griffiths of Llanharan urged his people to pray and reported:

“When the stated Sabbath arrived, we were blessed with remarkable earnestness at the throne of grace for the descent of the Holy Spirit to revive the church and convert the world.  Ever since that memorable Sabbath, the prayer meetings presented a new aspect–they gradually increased in warmth and number during the following months.  They continued to February (1859)…when it pleased Jehovah to pour down His Spirit from on high, as on the day of Pentecost (Brian H. Edwards, Revival! A People Saturated With God, 80).
