Romans 12:1-2 NIV
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12:1-2 Amplified Bible
“Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.
2 And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].

“The prayers of a few sanctified men will result in the salvation of the majority, just as after 10 days in the Upper Room, the twelve through prayer and fasting brought Pentecostal revival(aka Holy Spirit outpouring), and the salvation of at least 8,000 sinners.(Acts 1:24; 2:41; 4:4) ” －Johnson and Pearl

“Jesus never said first preach the gospel, build churches, then seek revival last. Nearly all churches and seminaries today are busy going after numbers, offerings, activities, and preaching sin-diluting false gospels. No wonder they are too busy and blind to see the importance and absolute necessity of praying for revival.” －Johnson and Pearl
