An Entire City Paused For Prayer - Denver Post/January 20, 1905
"For two hours at midday all Denver was held in a spell. The marts of trade were deserted between noon and two o'clock this afternoon, and all worldly affairs were forgotten, and the entire city was given over to meditation of higher things. The spirit of the Almighty pervaded every nook. Going to and coming from the great meetings, the thousands of men and women radiated this Spirit which filled them, and the clear Colorado sunshine was made brighter by the reflected glow of the light of God shining from happy faces. Seldom has such a remarkable sight been witnessed - an entire great city, in the middle of a busy weekday, bowing before the throne of heaven and asking and receiving the blessing of the King of he Universe."
Can history repeat itself? The answer is a resounding - YES!
Jonathan Edwards led a prayer effort in New England in 1735 that history now recognizes as "The First Great Awakening" in America.
A Baptist minister, Isaac Backus, had an encounter with the Holy Spirit that left this impression upon him: "There's only one power on earth that commands the power of heaven - prayer." He then wrote a Plea for Prayer for Revival of Religion. In it he pleaded for each pastor in America to set aside the first Monday of every month to open their churches and pray for revival in America which at the time was in a spiritual slump. The result, the great revival of 1800. (Gasper River, Kentucky - 11,000 flock to prayer and repent birthing America's first Camp Meeting; Cane Ridge Camp Meeting - 25,000 gathered while many pastors used cut down trees, stumps and flatbed wagons for pulpits)
The revivals of 1857 and 1904 were also turning points for our nation spiritually but what about now? Can another revival with this type of magnitude hit America? My answer, absolutely! Not only is it possible but depending on the hunger of God's people for His presence, the upcoming outpouring of the Holy Spirit can be larger than any of the others combined! Not only that but a world-wide outpouring that could usher in the second coming of Christ. It all depends on our faith, desire, believe and persistence to petition the altar of God will our prayers for His presence.
It's only a matter of time in my opinion that America will experience its greatest spiritual awakening. Where it breaks forth first is left up to us. It is my personal belief along with many others that one of these outpourings will take place at the birthplace of America, Williamsburg, Virginia. We're hungry...
