DCLM Daily Manna For Today MESSAGE:

On 8th February 2023, the world’s attention was drawn to Asbury University, Kentucky, where a chapel service snowballed into a non-stop prayer and worship session that continued for over a week. By 14 February, the worshippers had grown beyond 3,000. Some interpreted the event as a revival comparable to the Second Great Awakening of the 1800s, the Pentecostal Azusa Street Revival of 1906, and the Evangelical Movement of the early 1970s. Others argued that the Asbury events focused on emotions devoid of genuine repentance and revival of the glory of God.

Habakkuk prayed for revival in our text. He asked God to remember mercy and turn His people back again. Revival means returning to life, restoring, or recovering old fervency. Revival is required when the Church becomes lukewarm, worldly, and prayerless when the members increasingly walk by sight and not by faith, and when idolatry creeps into the assembly of God’s people. The condition of the Church today compels a plea for revival.

Revival is the work of God and not that of a committee of the Church. It must be prayed down, as evidenced by the prayer of Habakkuk. The story of how Billy Graham caught the fire of revival should inspire us to pray. He was one of the theology students who went on an excursion to the house of John Wesley in England in 1940. The students saw where Wesley habitually knelt to pray beside his bed. They saw the two patches his bended knees had created on the carpet. Billy Graham later sneaked back into Wesley’s room, planted his knees on the same patched carpet, pleading, ‘God do it again, Lord, with me.’ He became a world-renowned evangelist and revivalist.

We should commence praying today for a lasting revival in our own time.

Every heaven-sent revival is a child of prayers
