Revival

Why would God send revival in the last days? In the Bible, He always gave believers an opportunity to repent, and he often allowed the worst of pagans the opportunity to repent as well (eg. Nineveh).

Prayer targets world's 3rd largest mission field America

July 31, 2008 - The Awakening America Coalition is calling for a blanket of prayer for America on Sept. 11, 2008, the seventh anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington. They say the U.S. is no longer the Christian nation it once was.
"D.L. Moody once said, 'Every great movement of God can be traced to a kneeling figure.'"
The event, "Cry Out America" will remind Americans of some sobering facts:
- Only 17 percent of Americans attend church on any given Sunday.
- Moral failure among Christian leaders continues at a high level.
- America has become the 3rd largest mission field in the world.

Whatever Happened to Evangelism?

Mar. 6, 2008 - Evangelist Luis Palau laments the decline of evangelism in the U.S. and encourages Christians to share their faith boldly. Without evangelism, the church cannot grow. He says:
If there is no evangelism, there is no church to deal with the other priorities. Discipleship is obviously a strong, ongoing church priority; but there's no one to disciple if you haven't evangelized in the first place.
