Countless numbers of Christians are praying for a new revival from God to awaken America. They feel this is our nation’s answer for all of our problems.
But how many believers realize that almost every revival or awakening in America has been followed by major wars?
The First Great Awakening (1734-1743) was followed by the Revolutionary War. The Businessmen’s Revival (1857-1858) preceded the Civil War. The Azusa Street Revival (1906-1910) preceded World War I and World War II. The Latter Rain or Healing Revival (1948-1954) preceded the Korean War. The Charismatic Revival (1960- 1970) preceded the Vietnam War.
A revival is an inrush of the Holy Spirit to stir believers’ hearts and create new believers for the Kingdom of God. But in America, it has almost always prepared believers for the gloomy days which followed the revival.
My prayer today:
Lord, revive America once again so that we can walk through the troubles of today and those awaiting us in the future. (Based on Psalm 138:7)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.
