Franklin Graham: Praying for the Next Great Awakening

Franklin Graham

Franklin Graham (ABC News)

Hardly a day passes that I don’t hear someone say, “We are losing our country; we are losing our churches.”

While doomsday appears to be knocking at our door, let me take you back to the early 1800s. Many think of it as “the good old days,” but history tells us that society, even then, was as bad as it could get at that time. John Marshall, chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, wrote to President James Madison and said, “The church is too far gone ever to be redeemed.” When we examine why, we find that preachers had stopped preaching the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the people were not hearing God’s Word.

What changed? Christians began to diligently pray for revival—and the result was the Second Great Awakening. When people’s prayers stormed the heavens, and when the Bible was opened in the pulpits and the Word of God proclaimed by passionate preachers, the church was awakened from slumber by the Holy Spirit, who moved in hearts, spreading revival throughout the heartland of America.

  1. Sad but true,what’s going on in the churches of today,but the truth must be told.Yes,the commercialization of God’s word and entertainments must stop in the church,and the nonchalant attitude of the church towards prayer must cease.Then we will be in,for the greatest revival the world has ever seen!
