Psalm 85:1-6

Lord, You were favorable to our land; You restored the fortunes of Jacob.  You forgave the iniquity of Your people; You covered all their sin.  You withdrew all your wrath; You turned from Your hot anger.  Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away Your indignation toward us!  Will you be angry with us forever?  Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?  Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?  (Psalm 85:1-6)

1.  Revival has to do with the Body of Christ, bringing life back to the people and to the church.

2.  It is right to pray for revival, but churches don't "do revivals."

3.  It is right to expect revival, and to expect rejoicing to come from it.
