Send a "REAL" Revival

29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus." 31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

Last night, I was at the Harvest Rock "Revival Convergence Conference" Heidi Baker spoke, her love, that is the love of God in her is unexplainable, unearthly, supernatural, and I pray, as this woman has been an example to give of herself entirely to love this dying world, to love it to wholeness, that we would have that same heart, to give completely of ourselves to the work of God to bring light in this dark dark world, she spoke of receiving the cup of "suffering and joy" and how in the last month in Mozambique Africa a flood destroyed 360 of their churches, then missiles came and bombed their mission base (yet no one, no pastors or children were hurt) but 300 villagers surrounding were killed, how they supernaturally feed 50,000 orphans a day and how over 100,000 souls came to Christ this last month through the power of the Holy Spirit and compassion in the midst of destruction. I'm in humble awe of what God can do through a person, souled out as a laid down lover. Heidi prayed for me at the end, my heart broke, it cried out, like I have not cried out in a long time. I saw a vision of the nations while lying on the altar, Africa and China dying, destroyed by the works of the Devil, I saw North America, a generation sleeping, deceived and powerless, I cried out for justice, I pray, I pray, I pray, I pray we would pray until something happens to change the evil in this world, that we would ask God to answer our prayers and make us His hands and feet in this dying world that it would find Jesus, the only hope of the world, Christ in me the hope of glory.

Father, look upon the enemies threats, send "real" revival in this generation. We need it so bad Lord, my heart breaks each time I look at the spiritual destitution of our society, lives that are hurt, broken, dying, destroyed, hopeless and left for ruin. People who turn to broken cisterns, looking for living water, but only finding a empty cup of nothing, God where is Your power in our day? God break North America free from the slavery the enemy has trapped us in, break us free from religion, a form of truth but with no power. I look at the hearts that our dead, I look at the compromise, I look at the pain, I look at the powerlessness and lack of compassion of my own heart, break me God, break me for the poor, the broken, the orphan and widow, give me love that overflows, love that knows no fear, love that breaks me from "me", love that doesn't care what others think, or how I will feel, what will happen to me, love that will leave me in selfless abandon to the power for which You have called me. Father, raise up a chosen generation, don't let this generation go to waste, don't pass this generation by, don't let us be like the Israelites in the wilderness who wandered for forty years, not entering into the promise, but Lord AWAKEN this generation, awaken it from it's slumber and selfishness, fear and turmoil, awaken us from dead religion, empty rituals, Christian hypocrisy, selfish living, and move us into action, the nations need it, Africa needs it, the children there are dying, they are starving, they are faced with injustice daily, tormented, raped and treated as animals, little children are dying in Africa of AIDS and massacre, genocide, GOD release JUSTICE! SEND ME, SEND US, let us not wallow in our little suburbs, and office rooms, dormitories, and church services, but let us GO and help those in need, the dying of this world. Lord, release justice to the orphan and widow in China, the millions of little girls who are being aborted, left abandoned, prostituted for no reason but a hell bent edict to destroy their precious lives, oh God have mercy, millions are dying around the world and what am I doing? what are we doing? Break us out of selfish living, throw us out of our church services and into the streets of Los Angeles where there are homeless, without anything, those without love, God send Your children to be that love, to be your church in the streets, to be the answer to their prayers, God awaken this generation, how can we worship you on Sunday when there are people dying on our very streets, in our very backyards, oh God, have mercy upon your church, have mercy on our lack of love, have mercy on me for I have not obeyed You, God send "real" revival, forgive us for abandoning and rejecting Your Holy Spirit Father in our generation, we don't honor You Holy Spirit, we have rejected Your gifts, reduced you to a thought, a theology, a empty religion with no power, a meaningless discourse, oh Holy Spirit come back to our generation, pour out Your Spirit like the days of old, make us desperate for Your Spirit, truly desperate, to tarry in prayer until You are poured out like Pentecost once again, pour out Your Spirit upon Los Angeles California again, across this nation, release a 3rd great awakening, a real revival, not just programs, outreaches and meetings, and conferences, release the REAL THING, change hearts, transform lives and cities and this nation once again, come like a FLOOD, come like You promised in Joel 2:28 once again, forgive us for wounding You Holy Spirit, not cherishing You or befriending You, honoring You as the Third person of the Godhead, forgive me for ignoring You so many times in my life, oh God, pour out Your Spirit, glorify Your Son Jesus, glorify Him through thy Holy Spirit in this hour, I'm tired of doing it on my own, I can't do it without You, it is Your work, all I can do is pray and obey You, I am here asking for reality Lord, asking for reality in this hour, I look around me, the enemy is attacking Your generation, locking down your children in bondage, in sin, in shame, in sickness, in apathy, in lifelessness, in pornography "destroy the porn industry", send revival to the porn industry, save them all, deliver your sons and daughters who are bound to this sin of pornography, also save the homosexual community, sweep them all into your loving Kingdom, send revival to Hollywood, revive every person in this modern day Babylon, fill it with the wonder and awe of God, fill it with the entertainment that only can come from Your perfect glory, we need a real revival, stretch out Your mighty right hand and once again show Your power, send forth signs, wonders and miracles at the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus! Deliver the sick, the demon possessed, the poor and the downtrodden, fill our hearts with boldness, raise up a remnant, do it for real God, oh God have mercy, send a real revival to this desolate land that is crying out for living water. Oh generation, awaken, God is our only answer! in Jesus precious, most beautiful and wonderful name, have mercy son of David. Make the wrong things right, I won't stop crying out till this happens. Amen.

what would real revival look like? like that scene out of braveheart? what exactly is it that a broken nation would look like? a new age? a great awakening? how would we know it has arrived? will it ever arrive? it seems like many different religions pray towards some premeditated event because they can, it's easy to pray towards something, ceaselessly pouring your efforts into some unforseeable events that may or may not transpire and if it doesn't happen just say that the revival hasn't come yet or we need more prayerhouses..when does it end? will it ever? oh right. when revival comes.

thanks for post, jaeson. it really moves my heart. i realize more and more that God's passion is to wrap his heart around hurting humanity and hear their cry.

take care :)

I am sooo excited because this summer, I get to go to Mozambique and sit under Heidi Baker and the team for the summer. I cannot wait to learn, I cannot wait to move. In fact, I've begun to move. Your writing has lit a long dormant passion in my heart to see revival, to press in, to see change on this campus. I've gone deeper with God in the last five days than ever before. His Spirit descends on me suddenly and in odd places and I soak in it, listening to Him.

Last weekend I sat under Sam Lee as he talked about the Campus Church Network (which started all of this and your writing has served to further it) and he is an incredible man. I'm still processing everything that happened in those ten hours. I want to say thank you for hearing God's call because truly, you have been anointed, you have been called. I am praying for you Jaeson and for the continuation of your work as well as your boldness and sensitivity to the Spirit. Keep going even when the road gets tough, many people out there are waiting for you, they just don't know it yet. After all, where would we be if the disciples gave up when the going got tough? (That's what helps me keep going when I think I've lost my mind)

God bless you Jaeson and all your work. May He shelter you in the cold and wind and push you into the sunlight of a new day, a new revival.

Amen!
Thought you might like this quote, & 'anonymous', might answer some of your thoughts.
"Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on of late - and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get nothing for our trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop using it as a substitute for obedience." A.W Tozer
