Today is the second day that I have been praying for a revival to break out in Canada. Far-fetched, you think? It's not as unrealistic of a prayer as you realize. In 1904, a revival took place in Wales. A man named Evan Roberts had prayed for ten years that the people of Wales would … Continue reading Catching the Fire of Revival – Part III
Isn't it funny how a breath mint can be the difference between a moment with someone being sentimental and precious vs. terrible and nasty? There are times when I've been in close quarters with someone and all I can think about is how little I can breathe from the fog-cloud they are creating between us and … Continue reading Life Speakers and Bad Breath Breathers

But I've been dilly dallying … Continue reading Christmas in July?

Worship was never meant to be just singing songs for the sake of singing songs. Goodness, how bored I would be. I've only seen people fall … Continue reading The War Ship
We make it soooo hard. But Revival is actually quite simple. It's the life and glory of God pouring out into our mere human hearts. I’m reading through the book The Calvary Road by Roy Hession, though I’ve read it a couple of times before. If I had a better memory and didn’t constantly forget … Continue reading Catching the Fire of Revival: Part I
