What is the single most important change a Christian can make to the way that they pray? It is a simple belief that God listens and is willing to answer. As absurd as it may sound, it is common for Christians to avoid prayer because they don’t really believe that God will answer. In this video, Gary Wilkerson addresses this simple but profound change in mindset.
What brings about spiritual awakening? Real change in the church doesn’t come from smoke machines and entertainment value. It starts with people who are willing to spend time in prayer as they seek Christ.
Whether they are praying together in churches or spending time alone with God, Christians need to pray for revival and spiritual awakening.
Through history, there have been several spiritual awakenings that fundamentally changed churches and nations. As our own culture experiences moral deterioration, Christians need to pray that Jesus will once again be the center of the church. That is the kind of spiritual awakening that can pour out to the nation.
As society follows a path of moral degradation, Jesus is the only true hope. It is only through Christ that churches can come alive and Christians can be emboldened to stand up for truth. Every believer needs to pray that this kind of spiritual awakening will happen in our generation.
In the book of Isaiah, God spoke of “a tenth”—a holy remnant of people who would remain faithful to God. Today, even through perilous times, there will be a remnant of God’s followers. Gary Wilkerson encourages Christians to remain steadfast as part of this group of faithful believers.
