In recent weeks, many Christian leaders have started to speak out about our need for a 2 Chronicles 7:14-style season of national repentance and revival.
I kicked it off at 7:05 a.m. with a 5 to 7 minute introduction reciting 2 Chronicles 7:14 and posing the questions, "If not us, who? If not here, where? If not now, when?"
Then we spent about 20 minutes for men to do "private" 2 Chronicles 7:14 prayer and repentance in their regular table groups of 6 to 12 men.
Next, we invited men to an open mic at the front to offer "public" prayer and thoughts on our need for revival.
At 7:50 a.m., in accordance with 1 John 1:9, we asked men to confess their sins in writing and make prayer requests on 3 x 5 cards, then come forward and place them at the base of two tall crosses on tables in the front of the room.
I concluded with a prayer asking God to hear our prayers, intervene, and send his Spirit to heal our land.
Yours for changed lives,
