 A Prayer For Revival

[b]A Prayer For Revival[/b]
By Bessie Porter Head

O Breath of Life, come sweeping through us,
Revive Thy Church with life and power;
O Breath of Life, come, cleanse, renew us
And fit Thy Church to meet this hour!
O Wind of God, come bend us, break us,
Till humbly we confess our need;
Then in Thy tenderness remake us,
Revive, restore, for this we plead!
O Breath of Love, come breathe within us,
Renewing thought and will and heart;
Come, Love of Christ, afresh to win us,
Revive Thy Church in ev’ry part!
O Heart of Christ, once broken for us,
’Tis there we find our strength and rest;
Our broken, contrite hearts now solace,
And let Thy waiting Church be blest!
Revive us, Lord! Is zeal abating
While harvest fields are vast and white?
Revive us, Lord, the world is waiting;
Equip Thy Church to spread the light!

 Re: A Prayer For Revival

This truly is a heart felt prayer. Oh, that there were more like this! The last line is especially striking.

'Equip Thy Church to spread the light!'

The Church is equipped, we are just not using the equipment.

We can only spread the light as we walk in the light.

He has also made us overcomers, Rev 12v11.

We are too mindful of this world. It's temptations are choking the church.

But God is the God of the impossible. He's Almighty. Nothing can withstand Him. No one can withstand Him.

Revival is on the way! I believe it. God will answer our prayers. We just have to pray. God bless.
