Popular Christian filmmakers Alex and Stephen Kendrick, "the Kendrick brothers" are calling on pastors across the country to lead their congregations in praying more fervently to bring about a revival and a great awakening in America.
"If you look at the history of the Church, the history of revival and the great awakenings, it always was connected to people unifying and praying for the Lord to work in that situation and that's what we want to happen in our generation," Stephen Kendrick says in "A Passion for Parayer" video posted to Fcebook last week. "We cannot walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit, we cannot evangelize, we cannot walk in unity in the Body of Christ if we're not praying on a consistent basis."
Joining the Kendrick brothers in the plea for a greater emphasis on prayer in the Christian community is Pastor Tony Evans, head of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas. Evans' daughter, Priscilla, played a leading role in last year's blockuster hit "War Room," which is all about the power of prayer. more >>

"Deep down you're afraid of being found out. And the last thing you want to hear or read is His Word? Because you, too, are ashamed," she added. more >>
