"For most, if not all of my life, I have worn a mask. I have lived what others might say is a blessed life. Others have told me what a giving, loving person I am. What a great mother I am. And I never let on that I truly wasn't who they thouht I was. I am ashamed and saddened that I not only let them down, but more importantly, I have let God down. This week, He has shown me who I am in His eyes. And He has given me the opportunity to make alot of wrongs right. He has given me another chance to be the woman of God He has called me to be. I already see myself changing. In my home, in my marriage, in my parenting, in the disciplines I have asked Him to help me with. I have hope now that I can make positive changes that will forever change my life, my marriage, and my children's lives. God has blessed me." young mom
"I have been praying for a revival in my life and in the nation. I found myself these past few months wanting so much more of God in my life. To feel Him and His presence more than ever. Your messages have helped me see what God wants of me in order to be closer to Him by getting rid of the certain attitudes I've had, hurts that I hadn't let go, that are now given to Him. Thank God your obedience of allowing God to use your ministry has truly helped me. It's truly hard for me to write down on paper what's in my heart." 76 year old woman
"How do I put into words, what God has done for me over the past four days. He has grown in me an insatiable appetite for His words, and His voice. Coming into this revival, I was an empty shell. I was depressed and hopeless. I was lost in my sin and God was calling me to Himself. He has filled this empty shell with His Spirit and given me passion that I have lacked for years!"

"God has revealed to me that I need to change every aspect / every way that I live my life... to move beyond myself... to forgive those that I never thought I could forgive... to be a better leader in my family and how it should be based upon unconditional love... I know my role in this world now, and that is to honor God in everything!!" young man
"God has been revealing His truths to me throughout this time. Honestly, my cry has been over and over, "Lord, please revive me. Do not pass me by. I believe, Lord, but help my unbelief. My spirit wants to be revived, but my flesh is so weak. I have failed. I have failed." It was hard, but I loved the put off-put on sheet. To actually see just where I stand in relation to God's holiness and the realization of His overwhelming grace to me. What a joy to ask forgiveness and confess my sins to Him. I have felt very cold and distant from Him. I know it is from my own choosing. These four days have been a long drink that has saturated these dry and thirsty bones. I do not feel full by any means, and though I still thirst for Him, the dryness is gone. Please pray for me. I have tried so hard for so long, and I'm good at being self-sustaining, and that has only made me more dry. Please pray for my will to be broken daily. Pray that I would walk continually walk in obedience."
