Preparation for Revival- Learning what Revival Is

We prepare for revival when we as a church learn what revival is.
Jesus said in Luke 11:9-13 (KJV):
"And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?"
How can we receive what we do not ask for? How can we ask if we don't understand what we are asking for? If the church does not understand what revival is how can it expect to receive it? Calvin Colton clearly describes in his book that prior to the many revival in America's past the preachers would educate the congregation in what revival is and how they should be preparing for it.
