Baltimore | Southern Baptist leaders called an impromptu prayer meeting this morning, asking messengers to gather in small groups and pray for four things: personal revival, revival in our churches, revival in the Southern Baptist Convention, and national revival.
“I am a crier. I admit that,” SBC Executive Committee President Frank Page said during the prayer time. “Anyone who knows me knows that I cry easily… sometimes I ought to weep and I don’t.
“I don’t see a lot of weeping for lost people, or for our nation. I don’t see a lot of weeping in the church for anything other than when the service goes too long.
“I’m not going to ask you manufacturer tears…But I am asking that our hearts will be so sensitized for lost people that we have tears.
“May we have tears of regret, of repentance, but also tears of concerned for the lost.
“‘Where are the tears?’ is my question…For lost people, for our nation, for a convention that often seems to have lost its first love.”
