Awakening Agreement (4 of 5)
Introduction: We believe that God will honor our fasting and prayer with an awakening in the heart, mind and soul of every person who opens themselves to God. I believe God is at work and we are seeing His hand moving in our midst. We all believe that prayer changes things. Today we are focusing on Awakening Agreement. This is a powerful method of prayer.
A powerful example of prayer agreement is a group of people called the Moravians. This group of refugees fled persecution in Moravia and settled a village called Hernhut. They organized a band of 24 women and a band of 24 men with one man and one woman praying every hour of the day so the day was continuously covered in prayer. This double-prayer, unbroken through every day, was maintained for 100 years, from 1727 to 1827. During this period, they birthed the Moravian Mission movement in which the missionary church grew three times as large as the home church. By 1791 they had sent 300 missionaries to the four corners of the earth and were influential in the lives of John and Charles Wesley, preparing them for the revival that swept England and reached America.
