Preparing for Revival

Posted by Jake Thornhill, Jr. on

It’s exciting to see the moving of dirt, the digging of foundations and the beginning stages of our new children’s building and the renovation of our existing wing. Now we must prepare our hearts to experience God in such a way that He’ll revive His church, raise up new leaders -- especially in our children’s department -- and fill our new children’s wing with precious little boys and girls. God is going to use you if you’ll allow Him. Don’t miss this moment, this new  opportunity!

I’ve been praying for God to add at least one person every week to our church-wide Wednesday prayer time at 6:30am. I’ve been praying for God to not only bring you, but to keep you coming week after week. We desperately need revival in our lives and in our land, and it begins with a bended knee and a broken heart. We must get into the presence of God and cry out to Him! Prayer must become a priority. Is God speaking to you to become one of our prayer warriors?

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."  2 Chron. 7:14

Later this month, I will be with Dr. Samuel Thomas in South Asia for ten days. I will be speaking three or four times per day to students, pastors, the graduating class in the institute and in various churches. Please pray for my physical health. I still have ongoing problems with my back. Most important, please pray for God’s anointing on the services. If God doesn’t show up and touch down in the hearts and lives of people, it will be just another gathering, another meeting with no spiritual fruit. But our prayers can go where we cannot go and do what we cannot do!

While I’m away, you’ll be in good hands. Dr. John Avant, the President of Life Action Ministries, will be our guest speaker for the weekend. You may remember him being with us last year about this time. On Saturday evening, Feb 23, from 6:30 to 8:00pm Dr. Avant and his wife Donna will be leading a marriage seminar called “Valiant Marriage.” Childcare will be provided, but we ask that you RSVP ahead of time so we know how to plan.  Email us at  to let us know how many children you have and what ages they are.


Dr. Avant will also preach in both services on Sunday morning, Feb 24. Later that evening, he and his wife will conclude the marriage seminar at 6:00 pm. I believe God is going to use Dr. Avant to strengthen our families and to prepare us for a very special revival event in April.  

The Life Action Ministries team will be with us for a Summit event April 14 – 21. There will be events for everyone - nightly worship services along with special times for our kids and students to gather. Please pray, invite others and make plans to be here.  God will honor your faithfulness.


I believe God has brought us together for such a time as this. May we be sensitive to His Spirit and faithful to His divine direction.

 For the King and His Kingdom,

Pastor Jake
