Prayer has always been the precursor to revival.
If we commit ourselves to prayer, there is no limit to what we can see God do.
Genesis 32:26 gives us Jacob’s instructive prayer to God: “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” This is the kind of fervency and persistence that needs to characterize our prayers. Jacob was saying, “You can’t make it rough enough for me to stop. I am holding on until You fulfill Your promises.”
This is what Jesus was teaching about prayer when He encouraged His followers, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Luke 11:9). Knocking—by definition—is persistent repetition.
