Lord...Open Up The Heavens!
The Urgency for Revival (Pt. II)
2 Corinthians 5.9-11
March 18, 2007
Now once again from 2 Corinthians 5 .. we're thinking about The Urgency for Revival! And I pray God that there is deep within you these days an urgency for revival! The kind of urgency that Jacob had when he wrestled all night with the Angel of the Lord.

We're seeing more people join our fellowship by profession of faith and baptism than by transfer of letter! Thank God for the waters of baptism being stirred week after week.
Pastor Odilion with our Brazilian Fellowship reports that a 23 year old man in whom they had been praying for recently made a public decision for Christ saying that he now wants to be a faithful witness for Christ.
Andrew Fillingham our Middle School minister is reporting of God moving in a mighty way among our Middle Schoolers where God used a recent retreat to bring reconciliation among our students. Another sign of revival!
And these are just a few revival reports! And I pray that we'll have more and more of these revival reports to share with the church. And how I pray that God will give you and me a greater urgency for revival! ...
