Revival Prayer

As a church leadership we want to invite everyone at King’s to have a focus during most of the month of May on Revival Prayer. We want to call out to God together for personal revival, church revival, national revival and global revival. J I Packer says revival is: ‘God’s quickening visitation of his people, touching their hearts and deepening the work of grace in their lives’, Edwin Orr wrote it is ‘times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord’. Duncan Campbell: ‘Revival is the going of God among his people, and an awareness of God laying hold of the community’ resulting in ‘a community saturated with God.’

God alone is the initiator of revivals, and he stirs a revival cry from his people for him to: ‘Revive us again’;(Psalm 85); ‘Renew your deeds in our day’(Habakkuk) and ‘Rend the heavens and come down’ (Isaiah). We desperately need God’s Revival Power that flows from his Holy Presence. God has given us a Revival Promise (2 Chronicles 7:13- 14) to seek him in humble and expectant prayer, until he comes to touch and transform the church, community and country and ‘heal the land’. Over four weeks in May we invite everyone at King’s to seek God for:

Week 1: Personal Revival 6 - 12 May
Week 2: Church Revival 13 - 19 May
Week 3: National Revival 20 - 26 May
Week 4: Global Revival 27- 31 May

During the ‘Revival Prayer’ days weekly notes will be provided to help focus our prayers as we pray on our own. We really would love for everyone at King’s to be involved.

During this time we will have four evening opportunities to meet together:

Saturday 11 May, Revival Praise & Prayer, 6.30pm, Kingsbury Venue.

Wednesday 15 May, Encounter Evening, 7.30pm, Brigade House  

Wednesday 22 May, Revival Intercession Meeting, 7.30pm, Brigade House.

Friday 31 May, Revival Praise Evening, 7.30pm at Brigade House.

During the day there will be weekly Revival Prayer times from 10.30am to 11.30am at Brigade House on: Wednesday 8 May, 15 May, 22 May, 29 May for anyone who is free at the time. Also we are offering ‘Prophetic Appointments’ where individuals can sign up for a 15 minute slot to receive prayer and prophetic encouragement from a team of two or three people at Brigade House.
