Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? (Psalm 85:6)
“I have a theory…that there is not a church, chapel, or mission on earth where you cannot have revival, provided there is a little nucleus of faithful people who will hold onto God until He comes down.
First, Let a few Christians – there need not be many – get thoroughly right with God themselves. This is the prime essential. If this is not done, the rest I am going to say will come to nothing.
Second, let them bind themselves together in prayer groups to pray for revival until God opens the heavens and comes down.
Third, let them put themselves at the disposal of God for Him to use them as He sees fit in the winning of others to Christ.
That is all. This is sure to bring revival to any church or any community. I have given this prescription around the world. It has been taken by many churches and many communities, and in no instance has it ever failed, and it cannot fail.” – R.A. Torrey
