Today, we focus on the conditions for revival outlined in 2 Chronicles 7:14 and the role of humble prayer and repentance. Ellen G. White reminds us that “a revival of true godliness among us is the greatest and most urgent of all our needs.” Let us approach this day with hearts humbled before God, seeking repentance and renewal, praying with expectant faith for His transformative work, and committing to continued fervent prayer for revival.
