Revival Prayerby Michael Carl on October 14, 2014
As the priest-pastor, I believe the Lord led me to organize a series of revival prayer meetings with other churches in my area. The reason is seen in the American church: Substance is replaced by style; preaching is superseded by personality. The Gospel has been dumbed-down such that the majesty of God has been hidden from our sight. As Isaiah wrote 27-hundred years ago, 'for truth has stumbled in the public squares, and uprightness cannot enter.'
At this past Friday's prayer meeting, the Lord gave a Word from Haggai 1:8, 9. The Lord is speaking: '"8 Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house, that I may take pleasure in it and that I may be glorified, says the Lord. 9 You looked for much, and behold, it came to little. And when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why? declares the Lord of hosts. Because of my house that lies in ruins, while each of you busies himself with his own house."'
We're obsessed with our lives and our difficulties. I'm not making light of those at all, for I know the difficulties are real. However, the Lord is calling us to put His Kingdom first.
Thus, it is my heartfelt desire to network with as many churches and pastors as possible in a movement of revival prayer. Please feel free to contact me; the need for revival is urgent.
