R.A. Torrey's Prescription for Revival:

I can give you a prescription that will bring a revival to any church or community or any city on earth. The prescription is as follows:

First, let a few Christians (they need not be many) get thoroughly right with God themselves. This is the prime essential. If this is not done, the rest that I am to say will come to nothing.

Second, let them bind themselves together to pray for a revival until God opens the heavens and comes down.

Third, let them put themselves at the disposal of God for Him to use as He sees fit in winning others to Christ. That is all!

This is sure to bring a revival to any church or community I have given this prescription around the world. It has been taken by many churches and many communities, and in no instance has it ever failed; and it cannot fail!

How to Prepare for Revival

“And he said unto them, this kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” —Mark 9:29

We are asking every able member of the Lancaster Baptist Church family to join together for prayer and fasting in the month of January. Consider participating in a churchwide 24-hour fast on the following three dates.

Three Suggested Dates:
Week 1 January 5-6
Sunday 6 pm - Monday 6 pm

Week 2 January 12-13
Sunday 6 pm - Monday 6 pm

Week 3 January 19-20
Sunday 6 pm - Monday 6 pm

Fasting has been defined as “abstaining from food or pleasure for a period of time for spiritual reasons.”

January 26-29

For more than twenty years Evangelist John Goetsch has preached our Winter Revival at Lancaster Baptist Church. He is a skillful preacher who will challenge you to have a greater walk with God. Join us for these four days of spiritual renewal.
