The essence of a revival is that the Holy Spirit comes down upon a number of people together, upon a whole church, upon a number of churches, a district or perhaps a whole country.  – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones –

In 1993, God has given me this burden to pray for America. And to repent of the sins as a nation, as nehemiah did it for Israel. And to plead that God would send His supernatural revival upon His nation. (Dr. John C. Kim- Founder & President, JAMA)

Until then I thought I was just a Korean living in America, but this nation was created by God and if I’m a child of God, this country is my country. When I understood this I realized it is my rightful duty to pray for this nation. (Rev. Ezra Soon Young Kang – Co-Founder & Executive Vice President, JAMA)

2 Chronicles 7:14 is the heartbeat of all our national and regional conferences. Together with God’s people, and to repent and turn from our wicked ways, to earnestly seek His face and pray for the healing of our communities, families, and the nation. (Dr. John C. Kim)

Ownership sets JAMA apart from every other movement. It is the message of ownership which is the anchoring message of JAMA. EverythingJAMA does flows out of the value of ownership. It is because we claim ownership of the nation, we pray for the nation, for its healing. It is because of ownership that we challenge people to go into the leadership of the nation, under the leadership of Jesus. (Cathy Rabb, Executive Director, JAMA)

It’s not an organization, it’s not here to replace the local church, it’s a movement. It’s a movement that truly believes that true revival is generated by God, in the local church, through the local church, and for the local church.
JAMA is a prayer movement that’s grounded in repentance and brokenness. It’s about turning from our wicked ways. Now those may not be the most attractive or palatable or marketing savvy topics, but JAMA is not out to win a popularity contest. It’s about praying for awakening and revival, which I believe all of us agree our land desperately needs. (Rev. Stephen Chong – Lead Pastor, Revival Church / JAMA Boardmember / GLDI Faculty)

The church goes forward by first going backward. That’s revival. re- vive. We go back to Jesus, back to romans, back to whatever it was we lost and when we get back to the truth and life we lost, there is revival, reformation – Os Guinness – 2007
