What would a contemporary spiritual awakening look like in America… in our church and culture?

There are 20 indicators that will signal a Great Awakening in America: 10 in the Church and 10 in the Culture. These Spiritual indicators will ignite a passion for the body of Christ to unify in prayer, as we prepare our states, our counties, and our hearts.

4. A decrease in divorces and renewed commitment to marriage between a man and a woman in covenant relationship as God intends

5. Imparting faith to children and youth as parents are equipped by the church to become primary disciplers of their children
