In his book Revival Fire, Geoff Waugh lists nine similarities among Biblical revivals:

They occurred in times of moral darkness & national depression.

Each began in the heart of a consecrated servant of God who became the energizing power behind it.

Each revival rested on the Word of God and most were the result of proclaiming God’s Word with power.

All resulted in a return to the worship of the One true God.

Each witnessed the destruction of idols where they existed.

In each revival, there was a recorded separation from sin.

In every revival the people returned to obeying God’s laws.

There was a restoration of great joy and gladness.

Each revival was followed by a period of national prosperity.
