“At a time when the Church has become a ground for entertainment:

  • we need revival.

At a time when a music minister competes and compares himself with secular musician:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when the altar of God is used for comedy:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when a successful minister of the Gospel is measured by how rich he is and not how much impact he is making:

  • we need a revival.

At a time, when passion for souls have been replaced with fashion parade in the Church:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when motivational speaking has replaced biblical preaching:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when you really cannot differentiate between a daughter of Zion and an harlot:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when pastors kill one another for postings and higher positions:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when modern preachers now tell us that Jesus Christ is not coming soon:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when packaging and special effect has replaced the beauty of God’s glory:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when sexual sin is referred to as weakness and the grace of God is taken for granted:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when prophets prophesy by divination and profit from false prophecies:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when the church does not know the difference between witchcraft spirit and the Holy Spirit:

  • we need a revival.

At a time when filling the seats in our place of worship has become a priority rather than raising disciples for Jesus:

  • we need revival.

At a time when sinners feel comfortable in our churches and saints feel no sense of urgency to preach the Good News to the lost:

  • we need revival.

At a time when pastors are more concerned about how much money members give than how much the members truly love the Lord:,

  • we need revival.

At a time when the word of God is scarce and the fire on the altar is going out, and the priests have become blind, the watchmen sleeping, and holiness is no longer our standard:

  • we need a revival.

We need a revival not a program!

We need a reawakening of our souls and a new awareness of the power of God!

We do not need another jamboree, but true repentance coupled with a changed life!

We do not need another noise, we need a shaking and a mighty rushing wind!

We do not need another movement, we need a reformation!

We need the Lord to come again and restore us unto Himself!

We need the Lord to open our eyes again that we may see Him!

We want to see His Holiness again that we may see our depravity!

We need a genuine outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

We are tired of speaking in tongues and not living Christ-like lives!

There is no other desire that we have than to hear again the same voice that spoke in the valley of dry bones to bring us back to life.

Our nations are in darkness, yet we are the light.

We cannot pretend anymore, Jesus, come again in your power and reawaken us!

Revive us again because we do not see our signs, there are no more prophets and we do not know how long!

Have mercy on us!  Revive us again!
