There’s something missing with the idea of finding spiritual revival by reciting and repeating the words of a scripted prayer. Could a man expect a revival in his marriage by reciting and repeating a scripted speech to his wife every day? Possibly. But without sincerity and confidence, our words become powerless, don’t they? The Bible tells us when we pray for the Holy Spirit, we must not only mean what we say, but also believe that we have received it. How much more we can expect from the Holy Spirit by practicing confidence in our prayers will be like night and day!
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” – Mark 11:24
