National Revival in America: It Comes Down to You and Me

Praying for spiritual awakening in America is a broad, sweeping prayer. Ultimately, the awakening we desire on a national level must first be experienced in our lives on a personal level.  Corporate revival comes down to individual revival, to our spiritual walk – our personal repentance, submission, holiness and filling with the Holy Spirit’s power. It is not only hypocritical; it is counter... read more

“The question arose whether this was not the real reason why our prayers for the powerful operation of the Holy Spirit could not be answered…” I have been deeply blessed by reading Andrew Murray on Prayer, a resource containing six books Murray wrote on the subject.
