Prayer Warrior Commitment*
FROM: John David Hicks, Evangelist
TO: The Prayer Warriors in the Church
Real REVIVAL is defined as the unconditional outpouring of God’s grace that brings repentance in the people of God, conversion of non- Christians, and the sanctification of believers. RENEWAL, on the other hand, is a revitalization of God’s people so that they set themselves to obey God’s word as seen in Nehemiah 8 and Haggai 1:12-15. We need them both. I am praying that in this meeting God will do the impossible in the lives of people (Luke 1:37).
For a genuine revival to take place there must be a commitment to prayer, the cultivation of a burden for lost souls, the crying out to God for revival in the church, and the clear presentation of the gospel. I am committed to do my part as I “do the work of an evangelist” (2 Timothy 4:5). I trust that you will do your part as a Prayer Warrior (Jeremiah 33:3; Matthew 6:6).
Use this Prayer Warrior Commitment to help you pray for the upcoming revival. Get together daily with a friend to pray, each of you praying for every other request as you go through the list. Or meet in a larger group for prayer. Be sure to intercede by name for the people who need God. Pray for the church leaders, pastor, and evangelist as well.
I am looking forward to this revival and being with you. I will be praying with you for a special time of God's anointing on the services. God bless you in your work.
Your Brother in Christ,
John David Hicks, Evangelist

THE PRAYER WARRIOR COMMITMENT
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.” (2 Corinthians 10:4)
