“Lord, I need You. I need Your grace, Your forgiveness, Your love, and Your reviving power.”
“Lord, by the power of Your Holy Spirit, I want to say YES to You in every category of my life.”
“Lord, help me prioritize Your kingdom vision, Your Great Commission; and help me love others boldly, just as You have loved me.”
These are among the guided prayers provided for the campus community of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary by Life Action Ministries during “Thirst Conference” revival meetings, Oct. 23-25 at the Fort Worth, Texas, campus. Led by Southwestern alumnus and Life Action president John Avant, the revival encompassed six sessions over three days that encouraged humility, repentance and saying “yes” to God in every part of life.
“We have a John the Baptist kind of ministry at Life Action,” Avant explained during the opening session in MacGorman Chapel. “Luke 1:17 says to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. That’s all we’re here to do. We’re here to help you to think and to pray and to seek God and to say, ‘Am I ready for God to do whatever He wants to do?’
“This is what we’ve been praying for: a movement in this seminary of unity, healing and a fresh start.”
In the lead-up to the revival, Southwestern students, faculty and administration anticipated a fresh movement of the Holy Spirit on the seminary campus. In every chapel service of the semester, interim president D. Jeffrey Bingham concluded with a prayer for revival among the Southwestern family.
