Praying for Movement of God's Spirit

Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise.  -James 5:13

The Scripture says that we can ask God regarding whatever situations we are facing.  If we need revival then it could be argued that we are in trouble spiritually, and the Scripture says that when we are in trouble that we should pray about whatever the problem may be. I cannot count the times that I have spoken with people who were in some form of trouble.  The first line of defense, the first response, is to pray.  Seek the Lord by praying specifically for a great, mighty, and powerful movement of the Holy Spirit upon us.  What are some signs of revival?

-Jesus Christ is glorified and the Word is proclaimed.

-Our fellowship is increased. 

-Souls are saved and added to the kingdom.

-People turn their hearts back to God.

-There is a marked increase of people coming to church.

-The brethren take attitudes of humility, compassion, and forgiveness.

-We become increasingly concerned about lost souls.

-We see the Spirit of God moving upon the church in a fresh and powerful way.

-Worship is viewed as divine privilege and not something we feel we have to do.

-The church is energized, demonic forces are overcome, and people are delivered from the chains that bind them.
Join with me in praying that the power of God would fall upon us and that the Lord would have the increase and the glory.  Let us pray, pray, and pray some more.  Pray that souls will be saved and lives will be touched by the power of God.
