“Fervent prayers produce phenomenal results.”

“I’ve read the stories of past revivals and spiritual awakenings in our nation. So even when I get tired and need refreshing in my prayer. I still hang on to hope. That’s because my hope doesn’t rest in the effectiveness of my prayers, but instead in my God who always wins the cosmic battles.”

~ Carol Madison, Prayer That’s Caught and Taught: Mentoring the Next Generation, 47.

“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.”

George Whitefield drew up a list in his diary of those actions by which he would judge himself each day. There were fifteen items, and the first three concerned his prayer life…

The first one read: ‘Have I been fervent in private prayer?’

…The second was: ‘Have I used stated hours of prayer?’

Whitefield’s diary shows that his ‘stated hours of prayer’ were in the morning, at midday and at night. And he kept to these times, as a minimum, with strict discipline.”

“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!”

“We have never had any such thing in history as a prayerless revival,” said pastor Greg Laurie in a powerful, encouraging contribution to Faithwire. Pastor Laurie reminds all readers, whether they’re rejoicing or lamenting after this week’s midterm election, that it is people committed to prayer, not elected officials, who can save America.

“We look at the problems in our world and in our nation today, and we might point at different individuals. But let’s notice where God points when a nation breaks down spiritually and morally,” Laurie encourages the reader. He refers to 2 Chronicles 7:14, which says, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land…”

“God is saying, ‘It is my people. If my people would live as they ought to live, it would impact a nation. My people need to humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways,’” Laurie explains.

“We must pray,” he continues, “but there also must be repentance from all known sin. We need to turn from our wicked ways. All the prayer in the world won’t make any difference if we have unconfessed sin in our lives.”

“God promises that if we will pray and turn from our wicked ways and humble ourselves, he will heal us,” Laurie adds. “That applies to a broken family. That applies to a church. And that applies to a nation.” What a promise!

Laurie concludes, telling us that God wants to send revival, but we must participate.

For the rest of the post…

Maintaining a persistent prayer life seems more and more difficult in the hustle and bustle of a busy world.

“Church revitalization will only ever happen in answer to faith-filled, prevailing prayer. It is greatly to the glory of God to revitalize a church of humble, prayerful people. But it is greatly dishonoring to him to suppose this transformation can come about any other way.”
