I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray for revival to overtake the world. Stir up a fire in Christians throughout America, God, and lead us into a powerful time not unlike the Welsh awakening.

The Welsh revival was one of the most powerful awakenings in history. We must pray that the Lord brings a similar fire to our generation.

From Give Him 15. In yesterday’s post, I shared the first of two connected dreams received by Gina Gholston. The first dream was in July 2021 and ended with the phrase: “To Be Continued….”

Find out when your state prays.

 

The setting in the first dream was Wales. Evan Roberts, one of the leaders of the Welsh revival, was handing our generation the mantle he had carried in that great outpouring. During the dream, it grew into a much larger mantle in order to produce broader results. In the end, those who received it were transported by Holy Spirit back to America. If you have not read the dream, I would strongly recommend that you pause and look at Tuesday‘s post….

By highlighting this awakening, Holy Spirit is not telling us He will replicate exactly what happened in the Welsh awakening. … God is saying to our generation, “I am about to bring forth an earth-shaking, nation-changing outpouring of my Holy Spirit. It will produce great deliverances, salvations, healings, and societal transformation.”

The Welsh Revival

I feel that today, before sharing the sequel dream tomorrow, I should relate some facts regarding the Welsh revival; they will be helpful and encouraging. The visitation of the Holy Spirit in Wales in 1904-1905 was widespread and felt everywhere. It truly was a revival where God, in answer to prayer, poured out His presence unilaterally, and without focus on any one leader….

“The revival started in the South and a few days later broke out in the North, as well; within a few weeks, it had spread to all parts of Wales like a prairie fire. People began to flock to the church buildings. Sometimes all the churches in one town would be filled with people, for up to 24 hours a day. In some places there was preaching, in others, there was just singing and testimonies, in still others just people being led to pray out loud.

“The national employment was primarily in the coal mines. These were places of terrible ungodliness, with much swearing, blaspheming, and gambling. But now, services were held hundreds of feet under the earth. Sometimes 300 men would gather to hear the reading of Scripture, sing hymns, and offer prayers….

“One newspaper report said: ‘Truly God has visited His people in Wales. It is not a question of one town being awakened, but of the whole Principality being on fire. Police courts are idle, family feuds pacified, old-standing debts paid, the family altar re-erected, and Bible study becomes a passion. This is the finger of God. Not only does it hold a large place in the religious weeklies, but the chief Cardiff journals give columns to the Revival each day, and some of the principal London papers give a full column every morning.’

“But above all, there were the converts, 100’s of them! After a very few weeks, there were 10,000, and after a couple of months, there were 30,000. When 6 months had passed there were over 70,000 new Christians and after 9 months the figure leapt to around 100,000 new converts….

“In Scandinavia, a current revival was fanned into a mighty blaze, as a result of the Welsh Revival. Germany was similarly affected as the flame spread across Europe. Austria, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, the Balkans, and Russia experienced awakenings.

“The United States felt the after-shock of the Welsh Revival in almost every place. Prayer, conviction, and conversion spontaneously occurred, resulting in unusual church growth. In 1906 the modern Pentecostal Movement was born on Azusa Street, in Los Angeles, after a succession of local revivals through 1905. News of the Welsh Revival had encouraged more prayer and suddenly the Holy Spirit descended. Daily meetings were held for the next three years. Visitors flocked there to catch the power of the Spirit and they were not disappointed. No one could have imagined that this was the beginning of the greatest and most effective missionary movement the world had ever seen….

Pray with me:

Father, we thank You for Your Spirit of grace and mercy. You are good, all the time. We thank You for what You did in the Welsh Revival and the subsequent outpourings of Holy Spirit it spawned. It truly was used to impact the world.

And now You speak of another, larger outpouring. You say You are mantling Your people with the gifts, anointings, and power necessary to accomplish this. We ask for that….

Send the fires of revival throughout the earth!!! In Christ’s name, Amen.

Our decree:

We decree that the greatest revival in all of history has begun and will explode on the earth.

Amen and amen. We await the revival that you are bringing. May we as your Ekklesia continue to pray like Elijah did, sending his servant out to check for the cloud that would bring rain. Seven times he prayed and then the servant saw only a small cloud on the horizon, but Elijah knew that meant the rain was on its way! Thank you Jesus that the rain is on its way. Praise your name.

“I am about to bring forth an earth-shaking, nation-changing outpouring of my Holy Spirit. It will produce great deliverances, salvations, healings, and societal transformation.”

Dear Abba Father, my grandson was just fed, rocked and readied for his nap. You saw me. You heard me as I recalled Your coming into the flesh as an embryo. You were helpless. But You are The Almighty, All Powerful, You are The Sovereign God. You were totally dependent. But You are The Creator of All, everything in existence IS because You say so. I repent of the death that we have called healthcare. I repent of the death we call science. I repent and pray You will have mercy on us who are calling out for an end to abortion. I repent and pray You will have mercy on us who are calling out for an end to baby parts being harvested for “research.” I repent and pray You will have mercy on the mothers intent on killing their own by reminding them of the countless families who would love to adopt their child. “Father, I (so) thank You for Your Spirit of grace and mercy. You are good, all the time.” And on this Pentecost Sunday, Holy Spirit, I pray in earnest that You will bring fire to our generation unlike anything EVER RECORDED. Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us. Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us. Break us, melt us, mold us, fill us, Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us! I ask this in the Name of JESUS CHRIST, our VICTORIOUS SAVIOR, THE MESSIAH. Amen

Lord we received this, along with mantles of love and revival over our churches over our pastors and over our families and schools… In Jesus name!
