A Nationwide Call for Spiritual Awakening



What Happens When Jesus Comes to Town?

Things change when Jesus arrives. Always. His presence alters the atmosphere. Notice what happened when Jesus came into the land of the Gedera, a small town on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee. He encountered a man who was completely filled with a legion of […]


How Prayer Rebuilt a Nation

One of the greatest accomplishments in all of human history occurred through Nehemiah and the rebuilding of the wall of Jerusalem in 52 days. Nehemiah was a slave, in bondage in a foreign land. But he was connected through prayer to the God who made and controls […]


Resurrecting the Prayer Meeting

Most of us are familiar with a church that has good intentions about starting a prayer meeting. Often those good intentions fizzle after a short period of time. I was recently a guest preacher for one Sunday morning at a church in Mississippi. This is a solid […]


Preparing People for Jesus

John the Baptist had a unique role in the economy of God. Luke records that John was sent to “make ready a people prepared for the Lord” (Luke 1:17 NASB). God knew they needed this—that somehow this prophet was vital to help people get ready for the […]


Prayer That Sets People Free

“Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God” (Acts 12:5 NASB). It is tragic that we rarely understand or utilize the power of united prayer. We fail to realize that prayer can do anything God can […]

I remember a Ugandan pastor who came to the U.S. years ago who said that his message to America was “Desperation or Devastation.” That was a riveting thought. And of course, coming from Uganda, they had lived that in their country. It reminded me that desperation is […]


When God Answered the Prayers of a Scotsman

The year was 1950. The famous revival on the windswept Isle of Lewis in the Scottish Outer Hebrides was already underway. It began when two elderly sisters fervently prayed. Peggy Smith was 84 and completely blind. Christine, her younger sister by two years, could hardly walk and […]


A Nation turns back to God

The book of Nehemiah is an amazing account of one of the great revivals in human history. The Jews had rebelled against God, leading to their being overcome by and in captivity to the Babylonians for many years. True to form, God still had His hand on […]


An Appeal to Rightly Apply 2 Chronicles 7:14

As we approach July 4th, many pastors preach about Christians in America repenting of sin and turning back to the Lord so that He will bless His churches. One text they often use is 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NASB): [If] My people who are called by My name […]


Moses and David on the Presence of God

Two Types of People Humanity is divided into two groups: those who experience God’s intimate presence and those who do not. This is the world’s clearest distinction. Look at the men and women of great biblical renown: Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Deborah, Esther, Elijah, Elisha, Mary, Peter, James, […]
