True revival begins with the church and brings transformation of the church and socie and supernatural harvest of the souls!
Isaiah 64:1 (NIV)
Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down,
that the mountains would tremble before you!
"O God, send us the Holy Spirit! Give us both the breath of spiritual life and the fire of unconquerable zeal. O You are our God, answer us by fire, we pray! Answer us both by wind and fire, and then we shall see that You are God indeed. The Kingdom comes not, and the work is flagging. O, that You will send the wind and the fire. You will do this when we are all of one accord, all believing, all expecting, all prepared by prayer.
Lord, bring us to this waiting state! God, send us a season of the glorious disorder. O, for a sweep of the wind that will set the seas in motion, and make our ironclad brethren, now lying so quietly at anchor, to roll from stem to stern!
O, for the fire to fall again - a fire which shall affect the most stolid! O, that such fire might first sit upon the disciples, and then fall on all around! O God, You are ready to work with us today even as You did then. Stay not, we plead with You, but work at once. Break down every barrier that hinders the incoming of Your might! Give us now both hearts of flame and tongues of fire to preach Your word, for Jesus' sake!
“In a Sunday morning prayer meeting for these young people the pastor asked for testimonies of spiritual experiences… At last, a young girl named Florrie Evans, who had been gloriously converted a few days before, stood and with a trembling voice said: ‘I love Jesus Christ - with all my heart!’ With these simple words, the sparks that God had planted in so many hearts burst into flame and the great Welsh Revival began in 1904. The fire spread quickly…”
