Revival Starts with Prayer via Phone-App

In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly. (Psalm 5:3, NIV)

It was exactly 4:00 in the morning and the place was very dark. With a group of people, one young man hurried through a stony path to climb a mountain in order to reach the riverside. He pulled out his Android phone and looked around to find a spot where he could get a good internet connection. All the people who accompanied him were anxiously waiting to get the signal connected to his phone. Some of them had already started singing and praising God.

As the minutes ticked by, his phone got connected to the internet and he joined us through an app. We could barely see a few faces glittering in the dark. Slowly the sun started rising, and we were astonished to see that it was a large group of people who walked 90 minutes through the mountain just to pray through a phone. It was none other than “Pastor P” and believers from a certain village who joined in the “100 days Dawn prayer” during the early morning hour of 5:00 to 6:00 a.m.

It was extraordinary. There was an outpouring of the Holy Spirit when these innocent hearts joined in prayer. They do not know much about this technology. All they know is to stand in faith along with the pastor and pray during this time of need. What wonderful leadership and what a wonderful group of people who love Jesus!

It was Pastor P who brought such transformation to this village. A few years back, he, along with one of his Christian brothers, rented a room and started doing prayer walks in the neighbouring villages. Soon they got an opportunity to share the gospel with the village chief. The chief challenged them to pray for a 17-year-old mentally ill boy in that village. God heard their prayers, and today there are more than 85 house churches with 2,000 believers in the district where the pastor is presently working! Such great national revival can only begin with prayer.
