This evening I attended in a CRU workshop in Kansas City called “The Changing Face of Evangelism“. When I was in high school back in the 1970’s, some of us from my church youth group would go to the mall and do cold turkey evangelism with the “Four Spiritual Laws“. Many people, back then, accepted our invitation to share the gospel with them. It is a far different world today. Today, we must have many conversations with people. We must listen to their story. We must ask questions.

I learned tonight that we must…

“It is not always clear when prayer meetings are part of the revival itself or are proceeding it. But the distinction does not matter too much. Prayer is both the cause and result of the coming of the Spirit in revival.”

Brian H. EdwardsRevival! A People Saturated With God78.

Heavenly Father,

Our nation, the United States off America, is in great need of revival. Your people do not pray enough and usually pray about the wrong things. We desperately need revival. The church in needs revival! On the Lord’s Day, February 3, 2019, may your people worship in spirit and in truth. May we experience your power and grace! May the Word be preached with prayerful boldness!

Come Holy Spirit come!

In the precious name of Jesus!

Amen

God of compassion

your love for humanity was revealed in Jesus,

whose earthly life began in the poverty of a stable

and ended in the pain and isolation of the cross:

we hold before you those who are homeless and cold

especially in this bitter weather.

Draw near and comfort them in spirit

and bless those who work to provide them

with shelter, food and friendship.

We ask this in Jesus’ name.

Amen

a prayer from the Church of England

New York legislature votes to legalize abortion up to birth, let non-doctors commit abortions

ALBANY, New York, January 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Both chambers of the New York state legislature voted Tuesday on legislation to enshrine a “fundamental right” to abortion in state law and eliminate protections for preborn babies until birth, in votes set to mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

The state Senate voted 38-24 in favor of the so-called “Reproductive Health Act” Tuesday evening, the Albany Times-Union reports, a bill that has repeatedly cleared the state Assembly in years past but been blocked by the formerly-Republican Senate. Following the Senate vote, the Assembly passed it 92-47.

The bill declares that “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion,” erases the state’s recognition of preborn babies older than 24 weeks as potential homicide victims, removes abortion from the penal code entirely, and allows licensed health practitioners other than full doctors to commit abortions.

“We have a president who’s made it very, very clear that he wants to overturn Roe v. Wade,” Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins declared before the vote. “Today, here in New York, we are saying no […] and we’re not just saying no. We’re saying that here in New York, women’s health matters. We’re saying here in New York, women’s lives matter. We’re saying here in New York, women’s decisions matter.”

The Times-Union suggests the bill would allow “late-stage” abortions only if the mother’s “health” is endangered or if the baby is deemed non-viable, but the New York State Right to Life Committee warns that the bill would go much further in practice.

Declaring abortion a “fundamental right” opens the door to invalidating “any limits on abortion” and “mandat[ing] that everyone take part in the culture of death,”

For the rest of the post…

“Oh Holy Lord, you are worthy of all of our praises. You reign in majesty above us and are our Lord forever. We thank you for allowing us to be graced by your presence today, hallowed be your name. Accept our love and adoration in Jesus’ name. We are here to pray, almighty God that you will always light our way with your presence. We resist evil and pray that your light will always shine on us. May all people see your glory through us and come to worship you as the living God.”

For more prayers…

“Heavenly Father,

Blessed be your holy name! You alone are God! There is no one like you, and thus, only you are worthy of worship and praise. As your people gather all over America on Sunday, may they truly worship you in spirit and in truth and in the precious and matchless name of Jesus!

We are guilty of prayerlessness! Please send revival. We are desperate for it.

In the Awesome Name of Jesus!

Amen!”  

Heavenly Father,

Hallowed be your great and powerful name. Only you are completely holy and pure and perfect.  Someday, everyone will know this. It seems like every year, you get pushed more and more out of lives and society. More and more people in America do not acknowledge your existence and glory.  In 2019, please send revival to your people. Cleanse and forgive us for ignoring and judging our neighbors who need Jesus. Forgive us for our lack of prayer and our lack of love for you and others. Forgive us for watering down your ternal Word. Make us hungry and desperate for you in this New Year!

In Jesus precious name!

Amen

Heavenly Father,

As we end 2018, may our eyes and hearts be focused on you! Father, it seems that America is becoming more and more divided and angry and uncivil. we are are in desperate need for revival. Salvation in your Son, Jesus, is the only answer for our nation. Save souls, revive churches and keep us on our knees in prayer.

As your people gather for worship on December 30, 2018 all across America, may they worship you in spirit and truth.

In the wonderful name of Jesus!

Amen

“A total absence of prayer in the church isn’t a likely problem. Maybe a church somewhere out there never prays at all, but I don’t assume that’s happening in yours. I don’t know your church, But I bet there are times you come together to pray. Such praying may sparse and sporadic, but it happens. And therein lies what I think is the biggest problem: not a complete lack of prayer, but too little prayer.”

John OnwuchekwaPrayer, 18.
