A Pleasing Aroma
Oh Lord, let it be that our prayers would rise to heaven as a pleasing aroma unto You and Your name would be magnified in all the earth.
Baptist preacher “J. Edwin Orr, whose research on revivals forms an authoritative study, concluded this, ‘No great spiritual awakening has begun anywhere in the world apart from united prayer.’ (J. Edwin Orr, Prayer, Its Deeper Dimensions, p. 21.)” The Church today is in need of a renewal of fervent, effectual, prayers in our churches, especially, among our leadership since many will follow their lead. There is a saying that states, “It all lives and dies on leadership.” Simply put, this means that church members will follow the example of those in leadership.
Subsequently, we believe we should gather our church leaders in the UBA and cry out to God for a heaven-sent God ordained revival in our day. A revival that would renew His bride’s passion for God and His glory. We also believe that a genuine revival would bring about a spiritual awakening in our midst. Revived believers would set about sowing the seed of the Gospel with a great fervency causing many to trust in Christ. The hour is late and Christ’s return is soon, according to the Scripture. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Let us commit ourselves to watch and pray with a desperate fervency that will ascend to heaven and find its way to the merciful heart of the Most High. Oh that He might relent and leave behind a blessing of revival and spiritual awakening.
Revelation 8:1-6 says, “And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.” The Second Coming of Jesus Christ is soon, according to Scripture. When He returns He will not be a Suffering Servant but a Righteous Judge. He will pour out His judgment on the earth to fulfill His plans. Let us gather together and seek Revival and Spiritual Awakening before that Terrible Day of the Lord arrives.
