"This is Revival it isn't hype. It's ordinary people crying out for a move of God."
Are you hungry for more of God? Have a posture of "heart cry" for God's work. Go "low"

Voices are ringing out. People are bowing at the altar, arms stretched wide,” she wrote. “A pair of friends cling to each other in a hug, one with tears in her eyes. A diverse group of individuals crowd the piano and flawlessly switch from song to song. Some even sit like me, with laptops open. No one wants to leave.”
