[img]https://www.sermonindex.net/images/featured003.gif[/img]I was reading a small book on the life of John Hyde called: 'Praying HYDE' and I was convicted by this excerpt from the book:In Every revival there is a divine side and a human side. In the Welsh revival the divine element comes out prominently. Evan Roberts, the leader under God, seems in a sense to have been a passive agent, mightly moved upon in the night seasons by the Holy Spirit. There was no organization and very little preaching-comparatively little of the human element. The Sialkot revival which is no to be described, while just as certainly sent down from heaven, seems not so spontaneous. There was under God, organization; there was a certain amount of definite planning, and there were seasons of long continued prayer.Preceding the revival was the organization of the Punjab Prayer-Union.The Principles of this union are stated on the form of questions which were signed by those becoming members.[b]i. Are you praying for quickening in your own life, in the life of your fellow-workers, and in your Church?ii. Are you longing for greater power of the Holy Spirit in your own life and work, and are you convinced that you cannot go on without this power?iii. Will you pray that you may not be ashamed of Jesus?iv. Do you believe that prayer is the great means for securing this spiritual awakening?v. Will you set apart one-half hour each day as soon after noon as possible to pray for this awakening, and are you willing to pray till the awakening comes?[/b]Are you willing to JOIN with other brothers and sisters in prayer to God for Revival in your own hearts and in your communites? reply to this post with your full name.
