Ingredient for an Awakening
We can look around in many churches in America and see something is not kosher. We see that many churches are lukewarm concerning the things of God. It seems as though people are not concerned with the matters of God. We in America need a great spiritual awakening!
And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
To have a revival in America we must get back to the basics! The early church was founded upon prayer! We Christians, talk about prayer, sing about prayer, and even have prayer conferences, but we seem to do little praying. Why? I believe it is due to the fact we get so caught up in the cares of life. We must make time for prayer! It is the lifeline of the Church.
God said His house would be a House of Prayer! He didn’t say a house of preaching,teaching, or singing! I know all these things are extremely important, but can they be done right without prayer? It is in the prayer closet in which God anoints! Without the anointing ministry will be unfruitful!
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
