Prayer for Revival

Every month we meet as a church to pray for ourselves, our churches, and our nation, that we might see an outpouring of the Holy Spirit to reawaken and revive the church. In 1820 the Methodist Church Liverpool Conference ended with this prayer:”And being deeply sensible that, in order to the revival and extension of the
Work of God, the great thing to be desired is an abundant effusion of the Holy
Spirit on ourselves and our families, our Societies and our Congregations; we
solemnly agree to seek that blessing by humble and earnest prayer; in our
private supplications, in our family devotions, and in the pulpit; and we desire
to ‘continue with one accord in prayer and supplication’ ‘until the Spirit be
poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and
the fruitful field be counted for a forest’.” We continue with the working out of this hope and prayer.
