A national awakening is needed. There has been one in virtually every century of the last 800 years the last was in 1859-69. The steep decline of organized Christianity in the UK is almost unparalleled in Europe especially among Methodists, Anglicans, United Reformed, Brethren and other Protestant denominations. Pray that Christians might grow passionate for Gods honour, burdened to pray for revival and free from deadening negativism and materialism that pervade the churches.
