A Prayer for Revival

“Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly. Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.”

Psalm 85:6–9

In 1872, D. L. Moody and Ira Sankey went to England for a series of revival meetings that shook the entire nation. In one service, so many people responded to the invitation that Moody asked them all to sit back down, and explained the Gospel again to make sure they understood the message—even more people responded the second time!
In that church there was an elderly lady who had been confined to her home by illness. When one of her relatives went to the house to tell her about the revival, she opened her purse and pulled out a news story about Moody’s work in America. She said that she had been praying for two years that God would send Moody to her church and usher in a great work of God.
All of the organization, programs, and planning that we do can never take the place of the work of the Spirit of God. He is the One who touches hearts of Christians and unbelievers alike and moves them to action. He is the one who produces conversions and changed lives. And He works in response to the prayers of God’s people.

For the rest of God’s post…

“Next to the wonder of seeing my Savior will be, I think, the wonder that I made so little use of the power of prayer.”

I thought I knew the story, but I learned some things after the hymn was penned…

 

How important is it to reach children for Jesus? Famous evangelist D. L. Moody is quoted as saying…

“If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God!”

Let us pray hard that the children around us come to Jesus!

“Every great movement of God can be traced to a kneeling figure.”
