What follows are sixty-two of my weekly devotionals written from 2010 through 2012. The theme unashamedly is revival. My first two books, Seeking a Revival Culture: Essays to Fortify an Anemic Church and Revival Prayer: A Needed Paradigm Shift in Today’s Church, take up this theme of revival from different perspectives. Seeking a Revival Culture makes the case for revival from a largely historical perspective. Revival Prayer does so from the necessity of earnest, white-hot prayer, stemming from an intolerable burden—an intense agony, grief, alarm, and concern at the status quo in our personal lives, in the church, and in the world. This latest book, however, seeks to appeal to the heart of the reader. The United States of America, founded so clearly on the Puritan vision of a “City on a Hill,” has squandered God’s marvelous beneficence. We now find ourselves in an unprecedented moral decline which includes statism and socialism, same-sex marriage, a potential melt-down of the U.S. dollar, and a weakening geo-political position in the world. And the church seems utterly incapable of arresting the slide to Sodom. Preachers generally seem unwilling to address the hot button issues of the day, and the people in the pew seem to be at ease in Zion, perfectly content to go to church on Sundays to be entertained but unwilling to seek God in heartfelt repentance and prayer. They also seem reluctant to engage in personal, intentional evangelistic outreach. We are losing our young people to the world and the millennial generation in the church generally has no problem with same-sex marriage and socialism. Indeed, they seem oblivious to our perilous condition. So Essays on Revival: In Wrath May God Remember Mercy is a cry for earnest pursuit of the Holy One, believing that without true revival our nation is doomed to mediocrity or worse. I pray God will use what follows to move you to “give God no rest until His name is a praise in all the earth.”
