Prayer is an absolute necessity if revival is going to take place. A. T. Pierson makes this insightful observation, "From the Day of Pentecost, there has not been one spiritual awakening in any land that has not begun in a union of prayer. Though only among two or three; no such outward, upward movement has continued after such prayer meetings have declined."
In prayer we humble our hearts before God, acknowledging our total dependence on Him. In prayer we unite with David in pleading, "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me" (Psalm 51:10). Prayer opens our lives to God's cleansing power. We see hidden sins and defects in our characters that keep us from being the powerful witnesses He longs for us to be. Prayer draws us into an intimate relationship with Jesus. In prayer, we open our minds to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We seek His wisdom, not our own.
