Revival Momentum Is Growing!

Author: OneCry Team Date: June 24, 2014

Last week, we read how the newly elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention, Ronnie Floyd, is calling all those associated with his large denomination to seek, through prayer and action, another Great Awakening in America.

Today, we want to highlight two other calls for extraordinary prayer for revival and spiritual awakening from ministries we partner with.

Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., has their annual Call2Fall event. As they describe it on their website, “The Call2Fall is nothing fancy. No slick program. No big production. Just setting aside a definite time during worship on June 29, 2014, when you call your people to get on their knees and faces before the Lord in repentant prayer for God to reshape our lives and renew our land.”

The other call to prayer comes from Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz. She has heard the Spirit speak to her about the state of our world today.

In her words, “He has impressed on me that we are living at the end of human history as we know it…. In obedience, I am blowing the trumpet … sounding the alarm … issuing a national prayer initiative entitled7 7 7: An Urgent Call to Prayer. The Call is for God’s people to pray for each of the first seven days in the seventh month: July 1–7. Then on the 7th day, July 7, we are to pray and fast for 7 hours.”

The purpose:

  • For God the Father to restrain, protect, and deliver His people from the evil that has come into our world
  • For God the Son to be exalted, magnified, and glorified in His church, in our nation, and in our lives
  • For God the Holy Spirit to fall on us in a fresh way, compelling the church to repent of sin and our nation to return to faith in the living God, resulting in a great national spiritual awakening
