Revival 2.0

Jonathan Edwards, The Great Awakening, United States, 1735
“The town seemed to be full of the presence of God. It never was so full of love, nor joy and yet so full of distress, as it was then. There were remarkable tokens of God’s presence in almost every house. It was a time of joy in families on account of salvation being brought unto them; parents rejoicing over children as new born, and husbands over their wives, and wives over their husbands. Our public assemblies were then beautiful… The assembly in general was, from time to time, in tears as the Word was preached, some weeping with sorrow and distress, others with joy and love, others with pity and concern for the souls of their neighbours.”

Psalm 119:25
Revive me, O Lord, according to your word.

1 Thessalonians 2:13
And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Revive us again, Lord, through your presence and your word. Spirit lead us into deeper levels of repentance and worship and joy. May what you begin in us ripple out into the places we live that it could be said that London seems to be full of the presence of God - full of love.
