Hungry for Revival? Cry Out!

Byron Paulus, the director of the revival ministry, Life Action, is seeking the Lord for revival in our nation, but he makes sure we understand revival begins in individual hearts before it moves into groups and organizations. He has seen the Lord move in hearts, families and churches as God's people confront lies and embrace the truth of scripture. (The quote, above, is simply one reflection of how we can be deceived.)

He and others are calling us to cry out to the Lord for grace and mercy. The One Cry! movement is part of this. Find out more at OneCry: A Nationwide Call for Spiritual Awakening.

Women will gather, September 22-24, 2016, for the Cry Out! National Women's Conference, sponsored by True Woman 2016.

As part of that, a Cry Out! simulcast is planned for September 23, 2016 (6-9pm CT/PT and 7-10pm ET/MT).

Believing "When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears" (Psalm 34:17), these and other ministries are urging women (and men) to bow together before the Lord and cry out for mercy and supernatural intervention in our world, nation, churches, cities and homes.

But first, let that cry come from your own heart, for your own life.

Ask the Lord to revive your heart (Psalm 85:6) and then pray about how you can join with others this fall to seek Him and Cry Out! in this critical time.
