10 Things That Would Happen if a Great Awakening Swept America

Man is Praying to Holy SpiritI, like many of you, am praying for another great awakening to sweep over the United States. Based on revivals and great awakenings in history, here are ten things we could expect if our prayers are answered.

1. Sports games, movie theaters, and other entertainment venues would begin to shut down on Sundays. It wouldn’t be profitable for them to stay open since most people would be in church.

2. Wild manifestations would appear, some of God and some because of emotional excitement. Some preachers and church member would lament that the services are out of order.

3. People would spontaneously meet in homes during the week for prayer meetings and Bible studies.

4. Youth and children would be a major part and would have Bible studies and prayer meeting in school whether they were allowed or not. They would also tell their friends about Jesus and lead many of them to Christ.

5. People would do radical things like give all their money to the poor, decide to become missionaries, or start street preaching outside of bars.

6. People would be kicked out of their churches for getting too excited. Because of this, new churches and denominations would rise up.

7. A wave of persecution would hit because those who are resisting God would become angry. Some of this persecution would come from the church.

9. Every area of our culture would be effected: news media, education, sports, entertainment, etc.

10. God would require a greater surrender and yielding to Him in ways we might not like.
