I appreciate the sentiment, but we Christians may need to suggest solutions to injustice that don’t involve every American suddenly following Jesus.

Praying for revival and working for reform are not mutually exclusive.
Christian heroes of the past... William Wilberforce in England, Pandita Ramabai in India, Rosa Parks and MLK in America... prayed for revival and worked for reform. And didn’t see a conflict in that.
Wilberforce attended Bible studies AND fought to end the slave trade.
Pandita Ramabai fought for women's rights in India AND translated the entire Bible into her native tongue so those women could meet Jesus.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote about discipleship to Jesus AND worked to overthrow an evil regime.
Harriett Tubman praised God AND snuck slaves out of the South.
We can hold these things in tension. Praying for God to move in hearts, while working to alleviate suffering through policy and reform. Both and. Not either or.
