[b]21 DAYS LEFT UNTIL THE REVIVAL CONFERENCE[/b]
The Hebrides Revival 1949
I believe this gracious movement of the Holy Spirit - The Lewis Awakening in 1949 - began in a prayer burden; indeed there is no doubt about that. It began in a small group who were really burdened. They entered into a covenant with God that they would give Him no rest until He had made Jerusalem a praise in the earth. They waited. The months passed, and nothing happened, until one young man took up his Bible and read from Psalm 24: Who shall stand in His holy place? He that hath clean hands and a pure heart. . . He shall receive the blessing from the Lord. The young man closed the Bible and, looking at his companions on their knees before God, he cried: Brethren, it is just so much humbug to be waiting thus night after night, month after month, if we ourselves are not right with God. I must ask myself - Is my heart pure? Are my hands clean?
Duncan Campbell, quoted Arthur Wallis, In the Day of Thy Power, p124
Evan Roberts and the Welsh revival
In encouraging his congregations in Wales to prepare for revival, Evan Roberts would remind them that the Spirit would not come until the people were prepared. We must rid the churches of all bad feeling all malice, envy, prejudice and misunderstandings. Bow not in prayer until all offences have been forgiven: but if you feel you cannot forgive, bend to the dust, and ask for a forgiving spirit. You shall get it then.
Eiffion Evans, The Welsh Revival of 1904
Make me as holy as a saved sinner can be
It was Robert Murray MChcyne who, so greatly used by God in Dundee in 1839, had prayed from his heart, Lord, make me as holy as a saved sinner can be. The evidence of his sincerity in this prayer is seen in the fact that people would be moved to tears just by seeing him in the pulpit or walking down the corridor of the church.
Quoted Brian Edwards, Revival, p53
