Praise and Prayer

Praise: "I would not say God brought Revival in the classic sense of the term, but He has definitely revived His people in a way that goes very deep," said Pastor Melvin Blackaby of Bow Valley Baptist Church in Cochrane, Alberta. He added: "Brokenness within church leaders continues as God takes us through a time of cleansing. Times of corporate prayer have not only increased in attendance, but the genuine and heartfelt cries to God are powerful. The burden for the lost has increased as the sense of eternity appears close at hand. The manifest presence of the Lord has been evident to all, leaving many uncomfortable. One of our leaders has said, I had to choose whether I would repent or leave the church, but I knew I could not remain the same and stay at Bow Valley.'"
