138 days until the Greenock, Scotland Revival Conference
What happened on the day of Pentecost continued to happen through succeeding days and weeks, for we read that the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved (Acts 2:47); that is to say, men and women got right with God, not only on Sundays or on special preaching occasions, but every day, in homes, in the synagogue, in the marketplace and wherever unconverted men and women came into contact with those Spirit-filled, revived men and women.
So we have seen that our part in revival is to adjust the sails of our spiritual life to catch the first breeze that comes from heaven. Such adjustment involves preparation, supplication and expectation; or to put it in the words of Bessie P. Head:
O Breath of Life, come sweeping through us,
Revive Thy Church with life and powr;
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 every 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. -Stephen F. Olford
