Här kommer ett inlägg på In Christ Alone´s årsadag, som för övrigt också är yngste sonens födelsedag.

Dagens inlägg är en bön om väckelse som härstammar från The Welsh Revival som pågick åren 1904-1905. Den som formulerat den här bönen är Evan Roberts, den främste ledaren under väckelsen. Av många ansågs han vara underlägsen andra ledare, både i gåvor och utbildning, men Herren valde ändå honom och använde honom. Här kommer bönen på engelska:

Lord Jesus, help us now through the Holy Spirit to come face to face with the Cross. Whatever the hindrance may be, we commit the service to Thee. Put us all under the Blood. Oh, Lord, Place the Blood on all our past up to this moment. We thank Thee for the Blood.
Reveal the Cross through the Name of Jesus . Oh, open the Heavens. Descend upon us now. Tear open our hearts; give us such a sight of Calvary that our hearts may be broken. Oh Lord, descend now; open our hearts to receive the hearts that bled for us. If we are to be fools – makeus fools for Thee. Take us, spirit, soul, and body. WE ARE THINE. Thou hast purchased us. Reveal the Cross for the sake of Jesus – the Cross that is to conquer the World. Place us under the Blood. Forbid that we should Think of what men may say of us. Oh speak – speak – speak, Lord Jesus. Thy Words are ”vine indeed”. Oh reveal the Cross, beloved Jesus – the Cross in its glory.
Regin in every heart for the sakeof Jesus. Lord, do Thou help us us to see the dying Saviour. Enable us to see Him conquering the hosts of darkness. Claim victory for Thy Son, now Lod. He is worthy to have victory. THOU ART THE ALL-POWERFUL GOD: OH, CLAIM VICTORY. We shall give all the glory to Thy Name. No one else has the right to the glory but Thee. Take it, Lord. Glorify Thy Son in this meeting. OH, HOLY SPIRIT – DO THY WORK THROUGH US AND IN US NOW. Speak Thy Word in Power for Thy Name´s sake. Amen – and Amen!

Det här behöver också vi idag! Amen.
