The last Revival upon the shores of the UK as a whole, was The Hebrides Revival, that took place between 1949 and 1952. It is a truly remarkable story of two elderly sisters, one blind, the other bent with arthritis, who heard from God and were persistent in prayer, until The Holy Spirit literally shook […]

via Prayer brings Revival – what God did in the Hebrides — Call The Nation To Prayer

“As it is the business of tailors to make clothes and of cobblers to mend shoes, so it is the business of Christians to pray.”

~ Martin Luther

“In truth there is nothing more thrilling, more solid, more exhilarating, more humanity-restoring, more radiantly joyous, than holiness.”
