After you pray: eat, breathe, and sleep Revival.

February 21, 2012
II Kings 4:34 – And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm. 

This is revival in progress.

Elisha had already prayed.

Prayer must occupy the position of top priority if you want revival.

Prayer isn’t enough.

Mark Batterson coined the phrase – pray like it depends on God, work like it depends on you.

It’s the work part that is often pushed to the sidelines in the revival process.

All in

Elisha did something after he prayed that’s a must for any church wanting revival.

Elisha expected revival in the child.

He put his mouth, eyes, and hands, directly on this child’s mouth, eyes, and hands. Elisha did all of this on his own bed.

Elisha’s vision, breathing, grip, and place of rest, were consumed with revival.

After you pray: eat, breathe, and sleep revival.

  • Do that before you plan your next strategy.
  • Do that before you speak about relevance.
  • Do that before you change your look.
  • Do that before you imitate your favorite church.
  • Do that before you preach the racy series.

Talk about revival.

Let the vision for revival consume your eyes.

Get your hands involved in revival.

Live revival.

Throw yourself into it.

Churches consumed with His mission will soon find themselves in His story.

Are you all in?
