We are to prayer before and during a revival.
Prayer before revival is absolutely essential. But during a revival, prayer will increase and intensify. Brian H. Edwards writes...
"All revival begins and continues in the prayer meeting. Before revival the prayer meeting is not always attended by many; sometimes only by a few, but someone is always praying. When revival comes the prayer meeting is among the first to benefit. Someone has called prayer 'the great fruit of revival.'
The meeting that is frequently the Cinderella of the church becomes the focal point of the life of the Christian community, and Christians who have avoided a prayer meeting for year are now longing for the next occasion to call to God. Prayer is no longer a burden, though it may be a battle" (Revival! A People Saturated with God, pg. 125).
