Revival or We Die

Revival or We Die by Michael Brown for Charisma News John Knox prayed, “Give me Scotland, or I die!” George Whitefield prayed, “Give me souls, or take my soul!” Today, millions of American Christians need to pray, “God, revive us, or we die!” And there is no hyperbole in that prayer. Without a national awakening, America as we know it is doomed. In 1944, Rev. Peter Marshall declared, “Surely the time has come, because the hour is late, when we must decide.
