Prayer is a critical element of revival. We cannot approach prayer as a formality, if we want to make a connection between our heart and God’s. To borrow the language of the recent solar eclipse, “the Path of Totality” is where we want to be with God. Only prayer that comes from a broken heart and spirit can bring us to the path of totality where we find forgiveness, reconciliation and revival. That prayer is one of humility, repentance, confession and dependence on God. That is what we see in Nehemiah 9.
