According to Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981)…
…the greatest need of the hour is a revived and joyful Church…Nothing is more important!
(Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cures, 11-12)
It was exactly one month before my wife and I were married.
To desire revival…and at the same time to neglect (personal) prayer and devotion is to wish one way and walk another.
Of all the things Christ wants for us, loving Him and focusing our attention on Him are the most important.
All I know is that when I pray, coincidences happen; and when I don’t pray, they don’t happen.
~ Dan Hayes
We prayer that your people will be desperate to know and worship you! May we enter the sanctuary with only one thing on our heart and mind: to worship and exalt you. We are great need of your touch and power. We repent of our mediocrity and our weak Christianity. Restore your people Lord!
In Jesus Name!
We need to be urgent in our prayers for our nation and especially for our leaders in Washington DC! There is great division right now. More importantly we need to pray that the Lord will send revival to His church across the Land.
Come Lord Jesus Come!
By Ray Ortlund at the Gospel Coalition…
“Worldliness in the church is the number one enemy, and that comes in when we have unspiritual people, and we have unspiritual people too often because they are nominal Christians. They have the language, they have the outward, but they don’t have the power. So, Paul’s words: ‘The kingdom of God is not in word but in power.’ That whole school of Edwards and Alexander and so on — they believed in the power of religion. You know, men candidating for the ministry, and the minister saying, ‘Can he pray down the Holy Spirit?’ Imagine that question today. Can a man pray down the Holy Spirit? It’s not perhaps exactly the sentence we would say is completely correct, but you know what they meant. . . . When those men prayed, the Holy Spirit did come down.”
