Reader, we are in difficult times, not only here but
all around the world. Every day we get to watch
crazy, unheard of things from the persecution of
the church to the coming election. Things are not
what we in the west would call, "normal." How-
ever I think it is giving us an opportunity to find
out what really matters and it is a call to prayer.

Here is what I have been praying:

O Breath of Life come sweeping through us
Revive Thy church with life and power.
O Breath of Life, come cleanse renew us
And fit Thy church to meet this hour.

O wind of God, come bend us, break us
Till humbly we confess our need;
Then in Thy tenderness remake us
Revive, restore, for this we plead.

O Breath of love, come breathe within us,
Renewing thought and will and heart.
Come, love of Christ afresh to win us,
Revive Thy church in every part.

Revive us Lord! Is zeal abating
While harvest fields are vast and white?
Revive us Lord the world is waiting,
Equip Thy church to spread the light
Bessie Porter Head  1850-1936

First the revival of the church;
then salvation can come to the
world around us.
