Can Revival Come Again to America ?

There is no question it needs it!! As I carry the Cross through out America, I have talked and prayed with so many that have pulled over with tears in their eyes over the condition of some friend or relative drowning in some hurt or addiction. Mothers and Fathers watching their children and young adults drifting aimlessly from job to job, relationship to relationship, or just wasting away on the couch in front of a “Game Boy” or computer screen. Pastors that are broken hearted over their parishioners and churches that are cold and indifferent. Entire Congregations with not so much as a birthday candle worth of fire burning in them. Churches dwindling and closing. Pastors burning out and leaving the ministry at the rate of 1500 a month. Seminary professors that strip the authority and trustworthiness of the Bible, (the Word of God) from their students, thereby killing the faith of another generation. The professors themselves not having enough Faith to blow the fuzz off a peanut, they’re just vocational professionals. Our prisons are full, our schools are crime ridden, and sporting events unsafe. WHY? Because America is telling God He’s not welcome here any more. Stay out of our Schools, our Courts, our lives and then, when all Hell brakes loose, we cry out, “where was God?” Well we threw Him out! We said, “we’ll wait till our kids are old enough to decide for themselves before we teach them about the God” who loves them and has a wonderful plan for their life. But we learn too late that the devils crowd didn’t wait till they were old enough. They’ve got them drugged up and depressed in elementary school. WE NEED REVIVAL!!! And we need it Now!
Jesus told us ” the devil came to Rob, Kill and to Destroy, but I have come that you might have Life and have it more Abundantly” John 10:10.
Not long back I had a father pull over when he saw me on the side of the road with the Cross, a big man in size, broken and weeping because his son was afraid of him because dad drank too much and would lose his temper. I’ve had wives say the same thing. You should walk with me and hear what I hear! We need Revival and we need it Now!
The courts are busy getting the 10 Commandments out of everywhere, ” because it may offend someone”. Commands like, “Thou shalt not Steal”, ” Thou shalt not Lie” or “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife”! Well let me ask you which of those Commandments do you want your neighbor or your child to disobey? Doing that, we are denying our society any Moral compass. We Need Revival and we Need it Now!
Monday, May 20th I began a walk with the Cross in Massachusetts from the site of the Haystack Revival in Williamstown and I will walk to Plymouth Rock 170 miles away, Praying for Revival in America once again. Massachusetts has played a major role in the Christian heritage of our nation. The first Great Awakening that shook our country started under Jonathan Edwards in Northampton in the 1730’s, right when many of our Founding Fathers were born. They grew up in that atmospher of revival. I will carry the Cross through there praying, Lord as you did it under Edwards, Do it again, Do it Again! The great Evangelist, D.L Moody was born here. His preaching shook 2 Continents. I will carry the Cross through Lexington and Concorde where the Shot was fired that was heard around the world. I will stop and pray there for the Nation that was born that day. Then up Boylston St., to the recent bombing sites. After that, on to Plymouth Rock where Christianity came to these shores. I will end there with prayer, Lord Do it again, Do it Again! On this walk I am inviting anyone who wants to to join me at any part to come and let’s pray for our Country! We will have prayer rally’s across this state. If your heart is breaking like mine is for this Nation, come, join me, and let’s strike a blow through Prayer, against the forces trying to destroy our Christian heritage. Come, Lets make a stand together!!!
2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land.”
Please, if you’d like to help out a little financially on this walk, it would be truly appreciated. You can give through Paypal on the donate page or by sending a check to Rick Newton Evangelistic Ministries at PO Box 2 Lanesboro Ma. 01237.
