For some time, God has been burdening my heart about prayer and spiritual awakening. I talked about this a great deal when I was president of the Southern Baptist Convention (2006-08). I saw then what was happening in our nation, in our churches and in our convention. That deep sense of need for revival in our land has only gotten stronger over these past six years.
As we go into 2013, God has laid on my heart the need to emphasize prayer and spiritual awakening like never before. Therefore, I will be talking about this throughout the coming year.
