Paul encourages us to pray without ceasing. All great revivals in history have been brought in by people who have prayed in this way, often for a very long time. Two sisters, Peggy and Christine Smith, were attributed with playing a major role in bringing in the 1949 revival in the Hebrides. Peggy was 84 and Christine 82. One account that I read of the Hebrides revival said they were praying day and night that the Lord would move. I feel we need a small number of people in this country to pray in this way. Many of those who join us in praying for revival will only be able to pray for a few minutes every day. That is a valuable contribution. But at the same time we also need those who feel called to pray without ceasing for revival. May the Lord give us some people in this country who will answer that call. David Jardine (April 09)
