I don't believe we will ever see another Great Awakening or revival on a national level, or even on a city level. When we compare our times and those times with Revelation 2-3, it is obvious that we are currently in the age of Laodicea** (whereas the Great Awakening fits the era of the Philadelphian church). That's not to say that individuals and individual churches cannot have revival - because I truly believe we can and do experience that on a personal level - just not on a large scale. There is too much junk and confusion in Christendom - even among true born again believers - for this to happen (sorry Bill Bright for bursting your bubble...).

**Matthew 13 and several other places in the NT teach that there will be a time of apostasy and turning from the truth worldwide - among professing believers - before the return of Christ.
