40 Days of Prayer – Prayer Focus: Repentance/Revival
The Journey Begins
In these latter days, God is making His children ripe for REVIVAL! We can all become catalysts for REVIVAL.
In Haggai 2:9, God spoke through Haggai the prophet saying, “The glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former.” God would say to His people, “Get ready for a GREATER AWAKENING. Prepare to experience the FRESH WIND of the Holy Spirit!” (Amen)
There have been great moves of God that occurred over the past 100 years that truly shaped history. In the early 1900s the Welsh and Azusa Street Revivals were responsible for over a million conversions and baptisms of the Holy Spirit. In the 1950s, the power of God moved through a Great Healing Revival. In the 1960s-1970s God swept through the nation with Charismatic Renewal and the Jesus Movement. In the mid-1990s, God poured out His presence, in what is known as the Brownsville Revival. I was a young Believer, in my early twenties, during the on-set of this great OUTPOURING.
You ask, what made the Brownsville Revival so significant? Let’s just say that the Holy Spirit was “very generous” with His presence. During this outpouring, REVIVAL FIRE spread throughout the entire nation. Congregations everywhere experienced an outpouring. Worshipers often lingered in God’s presence for hours. I recall staggering out of many a service completely wrecked by the POWER of God. Many have similar testimonies during this era. Whew, those were some good times!
After experiencing such an outpouring my level of spiritual expectations went through the roof. I’ve seen how God can move. This generation must cry out for REVIVAL! This generation is overdue for REVIVAL!
However, revivals are not meant to last forever. Revivals come to set us on FIRE for God! In (Acts Chapter 2), the Day of Pentecost (Shavuot) came and went. However, the effects of Pentecost is still evident in the lives of Spirit-filled believers today.
In these latter days, God is making His children ripe for REVIVAL! We can all become catalysts for REVIVAL. I am REVIVAL! You are REVIVAL! We are REVIVAL! However, we cannot expect REVIVAL if we do not first lay the ground work in REPENTANCE and PRAYER!
I hope that this message today has whet your appetite for REVIVAL!
Father, we need another Outpouring! This generation is overdue for REVIVAL. Make us RIPE for REVIVAL. Make us like burning ones; so that we can raise up other burning ones!
Father, we ask for RAIN in the time of the latter RAIN! Cause Your Spirit to break out in our congregations, homes, communities, schools, and nations. Father, please send the FRESH WIND of Your Spirit! Father, we praise You and thank You! In Yeshua’s (Jesus’) name Amen!
