Stand in the Gap - 1997
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)
Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
Psalms 85:6 (NIV)
There is some debate as to whether there have been 3, 4 or 5 'Great Awakenings' in America, but there is no doubt that we need a new Great Awakening now. Please pray for Revival.
