There is power in the earnest prayers of a righteous man. Solomon didn't look to the government for change, and he didn't look to other people. He looked towards the LORD and as a result change took place. It was the power of payer that brought the glory of the LORD which filled the temple.
2nd Chronicles 7:1
When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the temple.
If we want to bring revival in the church, it needs to start with the prayers of the saints. As we seek His face, and pray for revival, mighty things will happen. All we need to do is be obedient and leave the results to God.
