Revival & Prayer ~ by Vicky Bentley

| FRM News

Wes just called from Texas where he is sharing at a men’s conference. They held an early morning prayer meeting and a good number of men came to pray….

As I was praying for them from Africa, God led me to a quote written nearly 200 years ago by a faithful warrior for Jesus, Edward Payson (affectionately known as “Praying Payson of Portland”):

I was enabled to lie at Jesus’ feet and to wash them with the tears of contrition. No pleasure I have ever found in the Christian life is superior to this.
Excerpt from Praying Edward Payson’s diary (February 18)
Payson’s life was permeated with prayer. He lived in teh presence of God. His bedroom had hardwood floors and the grooves where he knelt testified of his devotion to prayer and intercession…
Through Payson’s prayers to Jesus REVIVAL came….
     Would to God that more men and women would PRAY and usher in REVIVAL for us….
PRAY without ceasing…
      Ask of Me, Jesus said, and I will give you the heathen….
Maybe God has chosen you for such a time as this?
