I'm Still Praying for Revival and Awakening


My colleague Tim Curry and I continue to preach on revival and awakening, in us, and in churches across the land. We've been doing this for over a year now. Why?

Because American churches need to be revived and awakened.

Because the real problems are not economic and political. They are spiritual.

Because this is what we need.

What would be more important than this?

What would that look like? I'm using Michael Brown's definition of revival.

Not a weekend meeting.

Not something ordinary and expected.

Not something reducible to human talents and ability.

A lasting visitation of God.

That touches and changes hearts and calls Christians to repentance.

That makes all things new.

That produces real growth (converts), not pseudo growth (Christians leaving one church for another).

That transforms communities.

And rocks our nation.

My questions remain. What not you? Why not us? Why not your church? Why not now?
