Dr. J. Edwin Orr states, "I am convinced that more work for God could be done in six months of revival than in sixty years of any other kind of effort." If we as a church begin doing the work we are appointed with a touch of the radical, we will see more done in six months of

PRAYER AND REVIVAL
In Belfast, Ireland, in the 1930's, a church that ran about 200 experienced revival. Between 12 and 20 people were saved every night. 6:00 every morning found 50 people in the church praying for an hour. It was not singing, Bible study, and prayer, as much as the teacher in

Revival -- If?
If all the sleeping folk will wake up,
If all the lukewarm folk will fire up,
If all the dishonest folk will confess up,
If all the disgruntled folk will cheer up,
If all the depressed folk will cheer up,
If all the estranged folk will make up,

REVIVALS ARE BORN AFTER MIDNIGHT
A. W. Tozer: "There is considerable truth in the idea that revivals are born after midnight, for revivals (or any other spiritual gifts and graces) come only to those who want them badly enough. It may be said without qualification that every man is as holy and

Revival is the workings of God. Faithfulness to the ordinary with expectations to the extraordinary should be considered when dealing with the astounding workings of our miraculous God. By ordinary I mean: Bible preaching, prayer, and evangelism are fundamental necessities. Faithfulness in these
GIVING: A STEP TO REVIVAL
Today we are focusing our attention on the second step to revival: GIVING. We all say we want revival, but many throw away the second step - but you cannot have revival without taking the second step to revival.

WHO NEEDS REVIVAL?
Do I need revival? Consider this checklist and see how you do:
1)Is your heart crowded? Does Christ get ALL your love, or merely one of many pieces?
2)Is your heart cold or calloused? Is your love for Him & others fervent? Constant?
3)Is your heart corrupt? Do you crave or

INVALIDS' PRAYERS BRING REVIVAL
Max Lucado told of a church in Scotland back in the 1940s that was struggling to keep the doors open. A couple of its members were two older ladies who were invalids and couldn’t get out for worship any longer. But these ladies refused to allow their infirmities

There was a revival going on. The evangelist was a warm, gracious man. He always had a kind word for everyone. As he was walking with the pastor through the church parking lot there sat a Cadillac. In that Cadillac there was a man who was a paraplegic. He was able to drive that Cadillac because of
