Praying for Reformation and Revival

Once each month in Sheffield we hope to pray for reformation and revival. The first such occasion is this week during our midweek meeting. My eschatological position is A-Millenial, but I still believe that we should pray for revival. It is normally people with a Post-Millenial position who are more renowned for praying for revival generally.

Anyways, whatever our theological position, few of us really understand biblically and in reality what revival is. This definitely includes me. We will use the book "Lectures on Revivals" by W. B. Sprague as a base point for information and teaching. Another good book is the book "The Ulster Awakening" by John Weir which has some good pointers. If people know of other good resources, then do put a comment on this blog post.

Above all, we trust that the Sovereign Lord will hear our cry for help across Europe and especially for England. In some areas of our nation, the situation is spiritually desperate. We also pray for the Lord to raise up labourers.

Matthew 9:37-38 "Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
