I'm happy to share another song with you that I just finished. Some gracious new friends from New Zealand that I've made through PraiseCharts Live are trying to put together a conference for my friend Branon to come and train their worship teams and for me to work with their teams specifically on my music. Our new friend, Diane from NZ, has expressed that since we started talking about this, she has been having dreams and visions of revival breaking out and people lined up outside the church building, waiting to get in. The vision has grown from what started out as a weekend retreat for several churches in the area, to what could possibly be a nationwide concert tour/worship conference/revival "thing" (as you can tell, I don't even know what to call it).
All of this, plus re-connecting with an old friend, John Franklin, who used to be my Sunday School teacher and is a consultant on prayer and spiritual awakening (www.johnfranklinministries.org), has gotten me thinking on the subject of revival. As we were discussing the possibilities of the New Zealand trip, I was convicted that the key to revival is not a few catchy songs. It is the people of God coming together in brokenness and praying for mercy and forgiveness and for God to restore the years the locusts have eaten. The lost will see and hear and know there is a God and fall down before Jesus as their Savior and Lord.
