There’s Distinctive Praying All Across Our Nation:
“It’s the Most Hopeful Sign Of Our Times!
The evangelical historian Dr. J. Edwin Orr earned three Ph.Ds in the study of Christ Awakenings of the past. After nearly sixty years of research, one of his major conclusions came down to this:
Whenever God is ready to do something new with his people, he always begins by setting them to prayer.
Today, nationally and internationally, we are witnessing a prayer movement among God’s people unprecedented in history—in terms of the millions involved, in terms of its focus on a Christ Awakening and the global advance of his Kingdom, and in terms of its unity and intensity.
Truly, it IS distinctive! Just as prayer is a gift of God (as Dr. Orr observed), even so, this prayer movement is an extraordinary work of the Holy Spirit. Surely, God is not stirring up his people to pray large prayers for the spreading of the reign and fame of his Son without intending to answer the very prayers he has ignited!
This is the most hopeful sign of our times! In this CHRIST TODAY Podcast episode, I want to tell you all about it.
Listen and be inspired!
