Preaching Powered by Prayer: The Key to Spiritual Revival

What we really need is more of God.
Preaching Powered by Prayer: The Key to Spiritual Revival

Available on:

In this episode, Matt Woodley is joined by Jon Tyson, Lead Pastor at Church of the City in New York. Jon is dealing with “trauma at a personal and regional scale,” as a result of COVID-19. Part of the pastoring challenge is helping people navigate a new normal with Biblical hope. He’s shifted to a more pastoral tone in his preaching. “It’s basically the art of rejoicing with those who are rejoicing, and weeping with those are weeping, sometimes not even in the same sermon, but in the same point of the sermon.” Jon talks about his passion for revival, which really starts with a desire for more of God.

Check out what was referenced on the podcast:

1 Thess. 4:13: “But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope.”

Romans 12:6-8: “Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.”
