Song of the week: Revival – Robin Mark, Revival in Belfast

With just one week before Synod, I am praying that God would bless us with spiritual revival and renewal in our hearts and on our churches.

This is a simple request for profound spiritual challenge and awakening.

So we’re sure what I’m asking for, our churches are full of Christians following Jesus, and I am not suggesting anything other. Common sense also tells us there are many people in our churches who are not walking with Jesus, or who are resisting his call to follow in his footsteps. In addition, our culture invades our mindset and weakens our discipleship and waters down our mission.

So my prayer is that through his word and Spirit God will open our eyes to the glorious victory in the Cross and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and that we’ll be moved to passionate worship, fellowship and mission.

Robin Mark’s song “Revival” is driving rock anthem which captures the prayer of the church.

Enjoy it, and please join me in making this your prayer this week.

Lyrics:

I hear the voice of one calling, prepare ye the way of the Lord.
And make His paths straight in the wilderness
And let your light shine in the darkness
And let your rain fall in the desert.

As sure as gold is precious and the honey sweet,
So you love this city and you love these streets.
Every child out playing by their own front door
Every baby laying on the bedroom floor.

Every dreamer dreaming in her dead-end job
Every driver driving through the rush hour mob
I feel it in my spirit, feel it in my bones
You’re going to send revival, bring them all back home

I can hear that thunder in the distance
Like a train on the edge of town
I can feel the brooding of Your Spirit
“Lay your burdens down, Lay your burdens down”.

From the Preacher preaching when the well is dry
To the lost soul reaching for a higher high
From the young man working through his hopes and fears
To the widow walking through the veil of tears

Every man and woman, every old and young
Every fathers daughter, every mothers son.
I feel it in my spirit, feel it in my bones
You’re going to send revival, bring them all back home

I can hear that thunder in the distance
Like a train on the edge of town
I can feel the brooding of Your Spirit
“Lay your burdens down, Lay your burdens down”.

Revive us, Revive us,
Revive us with your fire!
