Christians around our nation have been fervently praying for a revival – pleading with God to send His Holy Spirit to awaken people from their slumber.
And with pictures flooding social media of the prayer firestorm taking place at Asbury – and other marathon prayer sessions popping up all around the country – are we experiencing a true awakening?
Christian filmmaker Alex Kendrick had the opportunity to visit one of these revivals – and here’s what he had to say.
Kendrick headed over to a private Christian college in Cleveland, Tennessee, to experience firsthand what was happening.
There was no celebrity preacher… no show…
… but instead a group of people fervently praying and praising God.
“Revival is still going on. That chapel behind me is still filled,” he said. “It’s been almost two weeks now, and I think that is amazing. My family and I have come up here for a couple of days and just joined in on what God’s doing. It is incredible!”
“When there is peace and unity and it’s very organic. There’s no show here. There is no spectacle other than seeing hearts transformed. Praise the Lord!” the filmmaker said.
“And so I’m very, very grateful. So what’s going on at Asbury, Lee University, Samford University, Cedarville in Ohio, there’s a number of colleges that are now seeking the Lord.”
Praise God for the revivals happening all over America!
One thing is clear – people are searching for healing and truth – and many are coming to learn it can only be found in Jesus Christ.
New-Age tactics like witchcraft, astronomy, pantheism, astrology, and other false means may be popular – but they aren’t sources of truth as many are learning.
Jesus is the truth – and He promises all those who seek Him with a pure heart will find Him.
Many people partaking in the revivals have either been asleep and going through the “religious” motions…
… or didn’t know who Jesus was at all.
Let’s continue to pray that those experiencing the power of prayer will come to know Jesus in a real and personal way, and get plugged into a local church so they can continue to grow and mature in their faith.
Whether one person is saved or 10,000 – heaven rejoices every time a sinner repents and turns to Christ.
So fellow believer, please be encouraged by the revivals we are seeing – knowing we are witnessing in our lifetime firsthand the beauty and power of the Spirit of Christ.
Let’s continue to pray for a worldwide revival and true spiritual awakening so those trapped in bondage will be set free as they find their worth and peace in Jesus.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” – John 3:16-17
