Praying for Revival
The churches in America need revival. Fervent prayer always precedes a heaven sent revival. The prophetess Anna in Luke chapter 2 is a great example of persistent prayer. She prayed and fasted and worshipped in the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem for at least 50 years waiting for the coming of the Messiah. In verse 38, she was able to see the baby Jesus when his parents brought him to the Temple to be consecrated to the Lord. Anna prayed! In the same way, we are to pray hard for a fresh wind of the Holy Spirit to blow through our churches.
