As I've grown older, I've truly seen the amazing power of prayer. The results of prayer can be sincerely humbling. God is waiting on us right now to draw near to Him, so He can draw near to us.
Yet we are human, and we struggle. We struggle to become close with God, or we refuse to do it, or we make excuses about not having time to do it. And we wonder why there is so much frustration in the world ... why we are always looking for something more that always seems just out of our reach.
There's a reason for this ...
Our world needs Revival. America needs Revival. Churches need Revival. Families need Revival. I need Revival. And you need Revival, too.
Everyone knows this but how many are striving for it?
God says in His word that "we have not, because we ask not" (James 4:2-3: "yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts"). And in Matthew 7:7 the scriptures state, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."
My church is holding revival from April 30th–May 3rd, and we need your help!
I'm challenging you, asking you, and pleading with you to join me and my church in praying for Revival at Kerwin Baptist Church in Kernersville, NC.
Here is all I'm asking:
1. Pray 5 minutes a day.
2. Pray 5 days a week.
That's it! It's pretty simple ... just five minutes a day, five days a week.
Pray that we will lay down our pride and humble ourselves before God, and allow God to work in us and through us! If you accept my challenge, please know I am extremely grateful.
I do have one more request for you: as you pray for our Revival, please start praying for your church to have Revival as well.
Take my challenge and make it your challenge.
Remember, God says "WE HAVE NOT, BECAUSE WE ASK NOT."
