Why do we not see revival even though many claim to pray for it? Surely one reason that is many of those seeking revival are not seeking souls for God as much as they are seeking members for their church.
Genuine revival would mean that people are seeking God, repenting of their sins, and laying down their lives for those around them. Marriages would be strengthened and families would be restored. None of this correlates with church attendance. If it did, then righteousness would grow as churches grow. But everyone knows it does not.
If you truly seek revival, pray that eyes would be opened to God and that people would turn to Him in love and humility – that people would live fully for God their Creator. It is not a relationship with us that will save them; it is a relationship with Him.
