It is inspiring to read about those who have lived in the greatest revivals the world has ever known. The following is from R. A. Torrey. He was superintendent of Moody Bible Institute from 1889 through 1908. He also was a pastor. In his later years, he traveled extensively as an evangelist and laid the foundations of the great Welsh revival.
From his pen, Torrey wrote:
“I can give a prescription that will bring a revival to any church or community or any city on earth.
“First, let a few Christians (they need not be many) get thoroughly right with God themselves. This is the prime essential. If this is not done, the rest that I am to say will come to nothing.
“Second, let them bind themselves together in a prayer group to pray for a revival until God opens the heavens and comes down.
“Third, let them put themselves at the disposal of God for Him to use as He sees fit in winning others to Christ. That is all!
“This is sure to bring a revival to any church or community. I have given this prescription around the world. It has been taken by many churches and many communities, and in no instance has it ever failed; and it cannot fail!”
- Please meditate on the above-mentioned Scripture and journal what God speaks to you.
- Secondly, how do you plan to be a doer of His Word?
- Pray for Him to join you with others who hunger for revival, and pray, pray, pray!
