As I stated before, we absolutely must prayer prior to a revival. Yet, when God sends revival from heaven, our desire for prayer will intensify. Murray M'Cheyne observed such prayer:
"Serious men covered their faces to pray that the arrows of the Kink of Zion might be sent home with power to the hearts of sinners" and many were "bathed in tears" (Brian H. Edwards, Revival! A People Saturated with God, p. 125)
Can you see this happening in your church or prayer gathering?
