I want to continue my thoughts today on “Why We Don’t Have Revival”.
Another reason would be that we don’t pray. I don’t know who said it; but, it is true. Here it is, “All failures are prayer failures.” Wow! So, based upon our topic today if we don’t have revival it is due to a failure to pray for it and it is a failure to pray.
Life is busy, I understand that. Two of the most important things that we as Christians can do is spend quantity and quality time in prayer. We must pray. Look again at our Scripture in II Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Prayer is a vital thing in the life of someone who knows Christ as their Saviour. This is the time that we can spend with Him and commune with Him. If I love my wife I will spend time with her. It is no different with my LORD. If I love Him then I will spend time with Him in prayer and reading His Word and listening for Him to speak to me.
So, my dear reader it is simple. If we are going to have Heaven sent, Holy Spirit revival like our nation, our Churches and we ourselves need we are going to have to spend time on our knees and our faces before Holy God in prayer. We must pray for forgiveness of our personal sins and our national sins. God please forgive me/us.
So, how are you doing?
