I recently enjoyed an editorial in The Pentecostal Evangel called A Model For Revival by Ken Horn. The article speaks of the Welsh revival of the early 1900's in which an estimated 100,000 souls were saved. Two men in Wales began to bow in humility before God and ask, "Lord, bend me." That became the theme of the revival of that day.

Soon they were pleading with the Lord for 100,000 souls. 

I was wondering if the Lord was thinking, "Ask for more! Believe for more! Pray for more!"

There are two quotes that the author of the article shares.

"Nothing sets a person so much out of the devil's reach as humility." (Jonathan Edwards)

"Water always fills the lowest places first. The lower.......a man lies before God, the speedier and the fuller the inflow of the divine glory will be." (Andrew Murray)

Today I am asking the Lord to bend me.

My second request is that He will give me souls! I am asking for 100,000 plus because I do not want to set a cap on it. 

Would you like to see revival? 

I know revival begins with one heart that is prostrate before the Lord. 

When others join the one, many will come into the Kingdom. I believe that nations can be saved.

Would you like to join my prayer for 100,000 plus souls? 

There is power in agreement.
Nothing is too difficult for our God!

Believing with you!

Oh Cheri, what a totally unselfish request. Yes, I will join you in prayer for souls.

I loved the quote by Andrew Murray.

I'm reminded of the lyrics of a hymn:
"Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me.
Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me.
Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me.
Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me."

Lord, bend me,
