people-praying-for-revival3What will spark a revival?

John Owen discussed revival when he said, “When God shall be pleased to give unto the people who are called by his name, in a more abundant manner, ‘pastors after his own heart, to feed them with knowledge and understanding,’ when he shall revive and increase a holy, humble, zealous, self-denying, powerful ministry by a more plentiful effusion of his Spirit from above, then, and not until then, may we hope to see the pristine glory and beauty of our religion restored unto its primitive state and condition.”

We need to pray for faithful pastors after God’s own heart to truly feed His Church.  We need to pray for an outpouring of His Spirit for a powerful ministry.

The pastors who are used by the Holy Spirit are key and hopefully your church is blessed to have one.
