Prescription for Revival

Prescription for Revival by Keith Cook & R.A. Torrey

"Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation... Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps." Psalms 86:5-13

I have the following outline by R. A. Torrey written down in my Bible. It has really challenged me in my personal life in regards to revival and seeking God.

"I can give a prescription that will bring a revival to any church or community or any city on earth.

First, let a few Christians (they need not be many) get thoroughly right with God themselves. This is the prime essential. If this is not done, the rest that I am to say will come to nothing.

Second, let them bind themselves together in a prayer group to pray for a revival until God opens the heavens and comes down.

Third, let them put themselves at the disposal of God for Him to use as He sees fit in winning others to Christ.

That is all!"

Mr. Torrey was right. His prescription for revival will cure what ails the church today. Many are running around from camp meeting to camp meeting looking for revival. Churches are holding meeting after meeting calling them revivals but few are revived. What is the answer?

Take three doses of God's prescription for revival.

1. Get right with God. Confess all sins up to date and flee from evil.

2. Pray and get close to Jesus.

3. Seek opportunity to be used of God.

Our Lord deserves a vibrant, healthy, Spirit-filled, servant who is reporting for duty today.
