CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEKS POST.....THE 1857 REVIVAL

And how did the revival affect the morals of the country? Vice and crime decreased. Even though the times were hard, and men, thrown out of work, could have plundered for bread, yet there was the staying power which prohibited an increase of burglaries. One man bent on murder and then su***de entered the place of prayer and found power to forgive, and the spirit of revenge purged. Sharp business practices were forsaken.

This revival of 1857-1858 was the hand of God gathering people together for the sole purpose of prayer. “Where two or three are gathered together, there I am in the midst.“ Someone gathered those together with a desire for prayer. That Someone was in the midst to bless.

Oh to see revival for the sake of this generation, for the sake of our nation!

THE 1857 REVIVAL

“The spirit of prayer was now moving to other large cities. In one meeting for prayer in Michigan a request was put in: ‘A praying wife requests the prayers of this meeting for her unconverted husband, that he may be converted and made a humble disciple of the Lord Jesus.’ A stout, burly man rose saying, ‘I am that man. I have a praying wife and this request must have been made for me.’ As soon as he had quit speaking another man rose in the midst of sobs and tears, ‘I am that man; I have a praying wife....I want you to pray for me.’ Three or four others rose requesting prayer.

“A father had three sons in distant and different parts of the country, all unconverted. He brought them to the meeting as the subject of prayer. They were prayed for as only those who believe can pray. What has been the consequence? Three letters have been received from these three sons, who have not communicated with each other, each giving an account of his own conversion.”

THE 1857 REVIVAL

“All over, the same spirit of prayer prevailed. Indeed, in no former revival was there ever such abnegation, on the part of Christians, of themselves; such distrust of all mere human agencies and instruments, mentalities, and such a looking away from all human aid, and up to the ‘heavenly hills’, whence all help must come.
Even ships at sea were overtaken in mid-ocean—knowing nothing of what was transpiring upon the land—by unusual religious anxiety, and came into port bringing the strange news of a revival on board, and of the conversion of some of the men. The great feature of the revival everywhere was prayer—prayer by Christians united—prayer constant—each day sending up a cloud of prayer as a volume of incense before the throne of God—prayer that was divinely inspired and divinely answered. Such prayer has power—such prayer must always be heard—such prayer must prevail.

THE 1857 REVIVAL

Early morning prayer-meetings began to spring up, and “the Broome-Street Church was one of the first to open a morning prayer-meeting. Other churches followed both in New York and Brooklyn, without any preconcert or any knowledge of each other’s movements. Some time before any other was heard of and nearly simultaneously with the Fulton-Street meeting, if not before, there was instituted a daily morning prayer-meeting in the Plymouth Church, Brooklyn. In a quiet and unostentatious way, others were commenced, earlier or later. In the second month of the Fulton-Street meetings, several morning daily prayer-meetings were in existence.

“Denominational barriers were broken down during these prayer sessions. ‘Never in any former revival,’ said an eye-witness, ‘since the days of the first Christians, was the Name of Christ so honored, never so often mentioned, never so precious to be a believer.’ “It was not prayer-meetings in imitation of the Fulton-street meeting. It was the desire to pray. The same power that moved to prayer in Fulton Street, moved to prayer elsewhere....Men did not doubt—could not doubt—that God was moving in answer to prayer. At the end of the fourth month, all prayer meetings were filled to their utmost capacity. Hundreds had to go away, unable to get into the meetings. How noticeable is one fact, and it must be noticed in order that we may see that
‘the excellency of the power is of God.’ There had been no eloquent preaching, no energetic and enthusiastic appeals; no attempt to rouse up religious interest. All had been still, solemn, and awful. The simple fact, the great fact was that people were moved to prayer. The people demanded a place to pray.

THE 1857 REVIVAL

Let us now look at the instrument whom God used in a humble way to establish the first meeting for prayer in New York. The Rev. L.G. Bingham, who was among the first to witness these prayer meetings, gives his account of this revival movement.
“In the upper-lecture room of the Older North Dutch Church,’ in Fulton Street, New York, a solitary man was kneeling upon the floor, engaged in earnest, importunate prayer. He was a man who lived very much in the lives of others; lives almost wholly for others. He had surveyed all the lower wards of the city as a lay-missionary of the Old Church, and he longed to do something for the thousands of souls that were going to the gates of eternal death. He knew he could take tracts in his hand, any and every day, and distribute them. He could preach the gospel door to door. All this he had done. Could not something more effectual be done? Day after day, and many times a day, this man was on his knees, and his constant prayer was, ‘Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?’ “Though he prayed and believed, he had not the remotest idea of the methods of God’s grace which were about to be employed.

This man was Jeremiah Calvin Lamphier who was a native of New York State. In the year of the revival, 1857, he joined the North Dutch Church, and undertook work as a lay-missionary. No plan of work was laid out for him and he began laboring in the poor district of that large city. Rev. Bingham, who was with him from the beginning, had access to the man’s personal diary and he shares the very first page with his readers.

“July 1, 1857. Going my rounds in the performance of my duty one day, as I was walking among the streets, the idea was suggested to my mind that an hour of prayer, from twelve to one o’clock, would be beneficial to business men, who usually in great numbers take that hour for rest and refreshment. The idea was to have singing, prayer, exhortation, relating of religious experience, as the case might be; that none would be required to stay the whole hour, that all should come and go as their engagements should allow or require or their inclinations dictate. Arrangements were made, and at twelve o’clock noon, September 23, 1857, the door of the third story lecture-room was thrown open. At half-past twelve the step of a solitary individual was heard upon the stairs. Shortly after another, and another; then another, and last of all, another, until six made up the whole company! We had a good meeting. The Lord was with us to bless us.” That first meeting had very obscure beginnings, with only one man present the first half hour and then five others arriving before the hour was finished. The next prayer meeting a week later had twenty people present. The diary of Mr. Lanphier records the third prayer-meeting. “Prepared for the prayer meeting today. Called to invite a number of persons to be present. Spoke to men as I met them in the street, as my custom is, if I can get their attention. I prayed that the Lord would incline many to come to the place of prayer. I went to the meeting at noon. Present at the meeting were between thirty and forty. ‘Bless the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me, bless His holy name.‘“

The Rev. Bingham again takes up his report: “The weekly prayer-meeting now was announced to become a daily business men’s prayer service. A larger lecture-hall was soon procured. This meeting was of uncommon fervency in prayer, of deep humility and self-abatement, and great desire that God would glorify Himself in the outpouring of His Spirit upon them. “The attendance has jumped to 100, and one month from the date of opening, Mr. Lanphier writes: ‘Called on some of the editors of the religious papers to have them notice the interest that is daily manifested in our meetings.’ But the revival had already begun before the press made any mention of it.”

THE 1857 REVIVAL
From a book entitled The Power of Prayer, by Samuel Irenaeus Prime, we have the account of that movement of God in 1857 with eyewitness records of how God moved upon hearts and communities. It was written just a year after those unusual gatherings for prayer which resulted in thousands of conversions. Some revivals have been marked by preaching with the unction of the Spirit upon them; others by singing, but this one seemed to be enveloped by prayer. It began in prayer; it continued in prayer.

“The pen of an angel might well be employed to record the wonderful works of God in the city of New York during the years of 1857, 1858....The autumn of 1857 was signalized by a sudden and fearful convulsion in the commercial world. That calamity was so speedily followed by the reports of revivals of religion and remarkable displays of divine grace, that is has been a widely-received opinion, that the two events stand related to one another, as cause and effect. “In the day of adversity, men consider. When the hand of God is suddenly laid upon city and country, the sources of prosperity dried up, fortunes taking to themselves wings; houses, venerable for years, integrity, and success, tumbling into ruins; and names, never tarnished by suspicion, becoming less that nothing in general bankruptcy, it is natural to believe that men will look away from themselves, and say, ‘Verily there is a God, Who reigns.’

Never was a commercial crisis so inexplicable under the laws of trade. It was acknowledged to be a judgment. The justice of God was confessed in arresting men in recklessness, extravagance, and folly. Thousands were thrown out of business, and in their want of something else to do, assembled in meetings for prayer. But these meetings had already been established. The Spirit of God had been manifest in the midst of them.
“Before the commercial revulsion, the city and the country had been absorbed in the pursuit of pleasure and gain. Men were making haste to be rich and to enjoy those riches. Recklessness of expenditure, extravagance in living, display in furniture, equipage, and dress had attained a height unexampled in the previous social history of our country, and utterly inconsistent with the simplicity and virtues of our fathers.

“These signs of prosperity had filled the minds of good men with apprehension and alarm before the panic seized the heart of the world. Christians who had been kept free from the spirit of speculation and the mania for making money, had trembled for the future of a people so absorbed in the material, as to be oblivious of the spiritual and eternal. These godly people had been gathering in meetings for prayer before the convulsion began.”

He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20:22

I had an opportunity to preach in a little schoolhouse two miles from my first pastorate—an afternoon meeting. After the morning church service, the rain was pouring in torrents. It seemed useless to go two miles through such a storm, for who would venture out in such weather? But a young woman had come for me in her buggy, and I went with her rather reluctantly. There were seven men present; the young woman went home to get out of the rain. My first impression was that it was hardly worthwhile to preach a sermon to such a small audience, but I repented of that and gave them the best I had. The dew of heaven was upon us: we were conscious of God's presence, and two of the seven men, who were not Christians, expressed a desire to be saved.
An old farmer arose and said, “My young brother, God is working in our midst. Will you not preach tonight? The clouds are clearing away, and we will go out and tell the people about the meeting.” I consented, though it rather upset my plans for the following day. That night about twenty-five persons came, and there were six or seven inquirers and two or three decisions for Christ. The meetings went on from day to day for two weeks. There were over seventy conversions, and on Sunday morning I baptized forty new members of my church. I could not explain it; no one seemed to be expecting a revival, or praying for it. It seemed like a case of God's sovereignty in giving of His breath-touch without demanding that anyone should pray for it. The last day of the meetings solved the mystery. At the close of the service a plainly dressed, gray-haired, motherly woman grasped my hand and said, “This is my home, though I spend most of my time teaching school sixty miles from here. When my niece wrote that you were preaching at three in the afternoon and at seven-thirty in the evening, I dismissed my school a half an hour earlier than usual, that I might spend in prayer every minute that you preached. And sir, I have come to see what God has been doing. Those you baptized this morning were all my neighbors and friends, and among them my brother, nephew, and niece.” Neither my preaching nor praying brought that revival. It was the godly woman sixty miles away, whose prayers brought the breath-touch of God upon dead souls of that community.
Let no day pass without a prayer to God for His breath-touch upon the spiritual dry bones of your community.

“In the morning, prayer is the key that opens to us the treasures of God’s mercies and blessings; in the evening, it is the key that shuts us up under His protection and safeguard.”
~Billy Graham

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and he shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” (Matthew 7:7)

I heard of a wife in England who had an unconverted husband. She resolved that she would pray every day for twelve months for his conversion. Every day at twelve o’clock she went to her room alone and cried to God. Her husband would not allow her to speak to him on the subject; but she could speak to God on his behalf. It may be that you have a friend who does not wish to be spoken with about his salvation; you can do as this woman did—go and pray to God about it. The twelve months passed away, and there was no sign of his yielding. She resolved to pray for six months longer; so every day she went alone and prayed for the conversion of her husband. The six months passed, and still there was no sign, no answer. The question arose in her mind, could she give him up? “No,” she said; “I will pray for him as long as God gives me breath.” That very day, when he came home to dinner, instead of going into the dining room he went upstairs. She waited, and waited, and waited; but he did not come down to dinner. Finally she went to his room, and found him on his knees crying to God to have mercy upon him. God convicted him of sin; he not only became a Christian but the Word of God had free course, and was glorified in him. God used him mightily. That was God answering the prayers of this Christian wife; she knocked, and knocked, until the answer came.

-Prevailing Prayer
D.L. Moody

06/25/2021

It was prevailing prayer that brought the answer to blind Bartimeus. The people, and even the disciples, tried to hush him into silence; but he only cried out the louder, “You Son of David, have mercy on me!” Prayer is hardly ever mentioned in the Bible alone; it is prayer and earnestness; prayer and watchfulness; prayer and thanksgiving. It is an instructive fact that throughout Scripture prayer is always linked with something else. Bartimeus was in earnest, and the Lord heard his cry.
The highest type of Christian is the one who has got clear beyond asking and seeking, and keeps knocking until the answer comes. If we knock, God has promised to open the door and grant our request. It may be years before the answer comes; He may keep us knocking; but He has promised that the answer will come.

Curious- what kind of "repentance" and "revival" are you talking about? If it's the right-wing-conservative-GOP-Trump-supporting-anti-abortion-pro-war-old-testament-not-new-testament-ten-commandments-not-beatitudes variety, then you should just cease and desist right now, because your prayers aren't Christian.

America Pray Now: April 25, 2019 Father, hear our prayer tonight: Don’t let us yield to temptation: Rescue us from sin. Please help us to be transparent on our sins with our family and friends. Please help us to take the initiative and forgive others that have sinned against us. Please help us to live changed lives behaving differently as Christians. Please help us to live at a higher standard: Your standard for living. Jesus set the example God: Please help us to live and love like Jesus did. Please free us from the sins that are making us sick as a nation Lord. Please help us to communicate this message all over the country. Please help us to have a revival whereby we confess our sins as a country Lord. Please help us to live transformed lives living for you Jesus for the good of your kingdom. Thank you Lord! Amen!
Our father…Who art in heaven…Hallowed be thy name…Father, please hear our prayers: I pray that women and men become involved in the abortion decision. I pray that they find Jesus Christ, and accept Christ and the Holy Spirit inside them into their lives before their decision. I pray they choose life. Abortion is not a Constitutional right; it is a sin. It is an epidemic in this country; there will be one million abortion deaths in 2019. That is more than any other cause of death combined. Men need to become more involved in abortion decisions; they now have the right to sue in some states whereby the baby in the womb has the right to life. Men need to be spiritual leaders in the home, and they need to attend church regularly. This would help them to develop a moral compass prior to making any decision on abortion. Abortion is big business. Planned Parenthood donated 30 million to Democratic campaigns in 2018. Candidates are trying to persuade voters by running pro-abortion campaigns. It is no longer okay to vote for a candidate just because they are pro-choice or pro-abortion. The time is now to take action, comment, and share. Socialism in this country is at epidemic proportions. In Venezuela, millions are leaving their country because of Socialist President Maduro. He is denying basic supplies to families, and he is denying Humanitarian aid. In fact, he is burning it. Several years ago, they took away all personal guns. I pray that people become aware of the evils of Socialism before it’s too late. God does not support Socialism because it encourages laziness. I want to pray for the people in Venezuela that they may find safety, security, freedom from Socialist rule, and a good home. I pray for all the men and women serving in the military. Please keep them safe and help them to do their jobs very well. Provide angels to protect them wherever they go. Please make special consideration for all the veterans and for all those that have died in service to our great country. That is my prayer today. Amen!
Lord, please watch over all of our service men and women. Please keep them healthy and safe anywhere they go. Please specifically watch over this unit and give them daily angels to protect them. Please give special consideration for all the serviceman who have died while in service. Amen. https://www.facebook.com/conservativeresistance/photos/a.727506840660287/2235570946520528/?type=3&theater

I liked them both. I am only up to page 10, and I’ve quoted him three times. I want to share this latest quote at the next America Pray Now Meeting on 3-28 at Charlys in Lynchburg, VA. I have four additional prayer requests for that meeting and for this group: 1. Please pray for the people of Venezuela trying to escape Socialist dictator President Maduro. 2. Please pray for children with disabilities (Like Autism). 3. Please pray for orphans. 4. Please pray for the sick in the hospital today with nobody to pray for them. I appear caught in a dilemma. I am now an advocate of World Vision USA, but I am totally against the United Nations. I want the US out of the UN ASAP. I hope that is never a conflict. I am saying that people in the US should support charities like World Vision much more because one of their goals is solving world poverty. However, I am advocating denying the UN because they will get us into forced Global Socialism and redistribution of income and property. Does that dilemma make sense now?
