In my letter last month, I encouraged people to, at the least, ask God for another Great Awakening in America when they sit and give God thanks for their food three times a day. I heard from a number of people that they were in wholehearted agreement!As we prepare to celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the dead (Easter), may we as a people call upon God to again bring “life from the dead” and wake up a sleeping – and often dead – church, as well as bring a great spiritual awakening at large.

It is important to know that awakenings are not simply times of enhanced personal religious experience. During a renewal, or awakening, there will be not only a great reviving of Christians, but also a large impact on the problems of society. Awakenings have social impact. In the wake of spiritual awakenings comes social restoration. Corrupt, immoral, unjust and ungodly people and societies can return to honesty, purity, justice and holiness.

Will Americans hear this call? Is it possible for America to experience another Great Awakening? Yes, it is. But she will have to meet the requirements that God has set out in Holy Scriptures: “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways: Then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Many have questioned: Can awakening ever happen again in North America? Revivalist Andrew Gih said it well: “God’s time for revival is the very darkest hour, when everything seems hopeless. It is always the Lord’s way to go to the very worst cases to manifest His glory.”

Please, pray for America. Happy Resurrection Day!
