To all pastors, leaders, and members of churches of the Gateway Association,
I would like to invite you and anyone you know who has a heart to see real revival in our churches and spiritual awakening in our communities and nation to come and pray with us on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 6:30 pm at the Whitelaw Avenue Baptist Church. I believe the only hope for true revival and change in our churches and the turning around of our nation is for God’s people to pray. In 2 Chronicles 7:14 the Lord gives us the conditions for revival and for the healing of any nation. One of the major conditions for revival is for his people to pray. We need to pray privately but we also need to pray with other Christians for a supernatural movement of God. One of the characteristics of many of the great movements of God in the past was that groups of Christians got together to pray. We are seeking to start or continue a movement of prayer in our association for revival and spiritual awakening. Will you come and pray with us? Will you let others, who have a heart for revival and spiritual awakening, know about this prayer meeting?
