Revival

Our pastor preached on the desperate need for revival in our times. I agree so whole-heartedly but yet I am at a loss as to know what it will take to bring revival. Prayer and obedience for starters, I think... I am not sure what else. I want to be more committed to prayer and to ever drawing closer to God... I am only one person, but I can't make decisions for anyone else but me. It's such a personal thing, this walk with God.

A charge to keep I have,
A God to glorify,
A never-dying soul to save,
And fit it for the sky.

To serve the present age,
My calling to fulfill:
O may it all my powers engage
To do my Master’s will!

Arm me with jealous care,
As in Thy sight to live;
And O Thy servant, Lord, prepare
A strict account to give!

Help me to watch and pray,
And on Thyself rely,
Assured, if I my trust betray,
I shall for ever die.
