“The Western world hasn’t experienced a sweeping revival for almost one hundred years”

~ Rhonda Hughey, Desperate For His Presence, 2004, p. 26.

“If we cannot make revival happen, we can at least stop hindering it!”

~ Wolfgang Simson, Houses that Change the World, page 104.

“A dynamic praying church must be built from the inside out, employing all four levels of 
prayer: the secret closet, the family altar, small group praying and finally, the 
congregational setting.”

~ Developing your Secret Closet of Prayer, Richard Burr

Prayer concerns three, not two but three. God to whom we pray, the man on the contested earth who prays, and the evil one against whom we pray. And the purpose of the prayer is not to persuade or influence God, but to join forces with Him against the enemy. Not towards God, but with God against Satan–that is the main thing to keep in mind in prayer.

Samuel Dickey Gordon, Quiet Talks on Prayer

Corporate prayer is one of the most important things we are to do together.

Why? John Franklin wrote in And the Place Was Shaken

If we are to see a spiritual awakening in this land, a reversal of the headlong rush into the moral cesspool in which we currently swim, then there must be fervent, intense prayer meeting sprouting up all over this land.”

In the Great Awakening in 1740-42, it is reckoned that 50,000 were added to the churches of New England, and about 300,000 across all thirteen colonies. In what we now call the “forgotten revival” between the years 1790 and 1840, 1,500,000 people were gathered into chapels in England and Wales alone. That constituted one out of every ten people in the country being converted. In the revival in 1859, around 100,000 were added to the churches in Ulster and 50,000 to the churches in Wales. It is estimated that in the 1859 revival in the USA over 2,000,000 were added to the churches.

~ Erroll Hulse, Give Him No Rest

God can bring me the power to pray that I long for.

~ Andrew Murray199 Treasures of Wisdom on Talking with God, #47.

Wesley L. Duewel, in his book, Ablaze for God writes:

All Christians believe in the duty of some prayer each day. Most, however, have an ordinary prayer life except in emergencies. Too often they have never realized the thrill and excitement of communion with Jesus and prevailing in prayer for others (183).

Or do we long for and pray for the extraordinary?

…revival is not the ordinary result of ordinary work. Revival is always extraordinary! 

Richard Owen RobertsRevival18. 

Is revival…

  • Scheduled Meetings? No
  • Mass evangelism? No
  • Emotional extravaganza? No
  • Church Growth? No

Then what is revival? According to Richard Owen Roberts, revival is “an extraordinary movement of the Holy Spirit producing extraordinary results” (Richard Owen RobertsRevival16-17).
