At Crane Eater Community Church our out-cry is for revival. That is, revival within, a revival that permeates through out. In other words, it brings a cleansing within, that works its way out. According to 2 Corinthians 5:17, God makes you a new creation... Old is passed away, all things become new!

Receive that scripture above that you just read, it’s a verse for you. God placed your name on it!Revival is not revival if i...

As I read 2 Chronicles 7:14 over and over, I started dissecting each part of the verse.  It went something like this: and My people who are called by My name (ok, that’s me and the Church, cool), humble themselves (ok, setting my pride aside and humbly coming to God, I like that), pray and seek My Face (ok got it, His people are praying and seeking His face, awesome!). 

Then this next part really struck me and it struck me hard; and turn from thei...

We have been talking all week about returning to God. America is in great need to not just talking about returning to God, but to repent of our sins and return to God's ways. Israel was judged and destroyed for it’s refusal of God’s ways and rejecting Him. Sodom was burnt up because of their sins. God was going to destroy Nineveh, but they repented.

So far, this year has been one like we have never before encountered. Most of us have been surprised at the turmoil, the sickness, the unrest, and the violence our world has witnessed. However, our Father was not taken by surprise. As one who knows our future, He carefully watches over us (Genesis 28:15, Psalm 121:8) with parent like anticipation waiting on us to call out to him for help. He is eagerly listening for our humble admission that we are ultimately power...

Revival Starts at Home – by Carrie Fitzsimmons Rigdon

In the late 1980s, the contemporary-Christian singer Carman released a song entitled, “Revive Us, Oh Lord.” Some of the lyrics say:

We've turned from Your waysLord Your fruit we've ceased to bearWe lack the power we once knew in our prayers That gentle voice from heavenWe cease to hear and knowThe fact that He has risen no longer stirs o...

II Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which 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.”

PRAYER

Since the beginning, GOD has desired a personal relationship with HIS creation. In Genesis, we read that GOD came in the cool of the evening and walked and talked with Adam and Eve. When sin entered the world through Adam and Eve, that physical intimate communication became prayer. I believe GOD created within us the desire to commune with HIM and that nothing else can fill that desire.Throughout the Old Testament, we see prayer as the condui...
