Father, I thank You that we have not missed our moment, we will experience your presence and your glory in our city – in every city across the United States of America and beyond!
Reading Time: 4 minutes

The fire of God that began in Asbury has moved across our nation. This significant moment in time began with great passion, praise, and humility. Still, there are challenges that come with such an event, causing some universities to pivot to new plans or new sites. How then do we continue to be a vital part of what God is doing? How do we keep those embers burning? Many are asking, “Did I miss my moment, what now?”

Let the IFA community know how to pray for you.


In the past couple weeks, I have prayed about these outpourings as I am sure many of you have. It would be awesome to be close enough to be a part of what God is doing across our nation. However, for many of us, it simply was not possible. Still, we recognize God is moving in our midst and we want to be a part of it. The good news is we can. Many churches have acknowledged and joined in this awesome time of seeking God and His presence by staying open for 24-hour prayer, praise, and worship. This evolving move of God has not only touched schools, but also churches and homes throughout the world. It is an exciting time indeed!


While talking to God about the many revivals we are hearing of almost daily, a scripture came to mind. It is found in 2 Chronicles 16:9.

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him (NKJV.)

God was not looking for a place to pour out His spirit. He was looking for a people to pour His glory and presence on.

The good news is He hasn’t stopped looking. He is still pouring Himself upon and into those who are seeking Him, we see it across the world. We are in a Kairos moment where God is looking for those whose hearts are hungry for Him, who are seeking His face. When He finds them, He is pouring Himself out without measure – it’s not about a place, it is now and has always been, about a people.


God is seeking those who are seeking Him. He seeks the hungry. In the book of John we find another kind of people God is searching for…

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him (Jn 4:23, NKJV.)

It hasn’t gone unnoticed that each of these outpourings began with spontaneous praise and worship. Why? Because God is seeking such a person, or such a people.

I love how The Passion Translation shares this verse.

From now on, worshiping the Father will not be a matter of the right place but with a right heart. For God is a Spirit, and he longs to have sincere worshipers who adore him in the realm of the Spirit and in truth.

Once again, we see it is not about the right place, it is about the right people, with the right heart. Those who possess a heart of worship.


While some may feel man is trying to stop what God is doing, I do not believe that to be true. They are simply trying to navigate a course they have never experienced before, as well as endeavoring to do what is best for all their students and staff.  These challenges demand wisdom and insight and we must continue to fervently pray God gives everyone involved a great deal of both.

This move of God can no more be stopped than a raging fire could be easily or quickly extinguished. As we know, throughout the pages of time, when man has attempted to stop God, they have never, not once, succeeded. In the book of Exodus, we find Pharoah attempting to stop God from delivering His people and removing them from bondage – he failed. In the New Testament, we find Satan trying his best to stop Jesus from fulfilling His purpose, he too failed miserably. Nothing and no one can stop God. He had begun to show Himself strong and powerful among His people and He will not stop until the whole earth is filled with His glory.

But truly as I live all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord (Nu 14:21, NKJV.)

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory (Is 6:3, NKJV.)

But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea (Hab 2:14, NKJV.)

I am so encouraged by what God is doing in our land. I only see it increasing exponentially as we position ourselves in a place of humility and worship. And as we continue to seek His face and His presence. God is looking for a people who are looking for Him, who are worshipping Him in spirit and truth – may we be that people. May we join with Psalm 72:19 as a nation and declare, “Blessed be His glorious name forever; let the whole earth be filled with His glory! Amen and Amen!”

I was saved in a mighty awakening 50 years ago. I knew it was an answer to a prayer. It was a thought: There has to be more. He hears even thoughts sincerely felt. Very early on I prayed all my family would be saved also ( believe me, that was a lot of people). My whole family has been known for being Christians all this time. Too much to tell. It is so thrilling to hear of the Kentucky revival. I KNOW it will spread. If you are new to this, get ready to be amazed!!! PS. Of the many men and women teachers in the body of Christ who came to help ground us new believers was Derek Prince!

Heavenly Father, I come to You in praise and thanksgiving for all that You have done for us. Thank You for creating us and giving us life. Thank You for the world You created for us. Thank You for our families and friends that You have created. Father, we have turned our back on You and Your ways as we turn to sin and our own selfish ways. You did not turn Your back on us. Thank You that Jesus was willing to come to earth and lay down His life to bring us salvation and redemption. I pray that Your Word would go forth throughout WI, the USA, and the world bringing the TRUTH to billions of people. Open their eyes and hearts Lord to receive what Jesus did for us on the cross. May revival spread throughout the world telling people of Your great love for us and Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins. I praise You and worship You for all that You have done for us. Amen

I desire for others to know you Lord and understand people are showing up to experience you or to satisfy their curiosity. I pray that people have an authentic life change of heart. Also that they find believers who can minister to them. As the social media and even Tucker Carlson speak of what appears to be an outpouring of your Holy Presence equip our churches and ministries to respond. Convict us, your people, to have authentic repentance. Amen

Our church called “the Ark” has been experiencing the Presence of The Lord. As grown men and woman fall at the altar or on the floor or set and or kneel beside our seats in weeping. Some have brought out in laughter. The Presence of the Lord has been increasing but.
We meet each Sunday night from 6pm till..,

We are a small group of older men and woman . we have greatly been desirous an praying towards revival for several years now, with great expectancy towards the youth.

We are feeling the Presence of the Lord as worship is allowed to go and we don’t want to stop.

Pastor Ken Rensink very sensitive to the move of the Holy Spirit. is passionate and hungry for revival among our youth and expect its a matter of time before they start to walk through our doors.

We are all trying to do our part as we are out and about inviting and encouraging pray them to come on in

So far we are seeing new younger faces. And people are so very hungry, hungry hungry for the Lord.

Our church is located right on Hwy 65 in Harrison Arkansas

I am praying for a totally unexpected and amazing revival in Texas. There is so much need.
Lord have mercy and send an evidence of your Spirit on the many college campuses, especially on the University of Texas and its associated branches. Send your Spirit to the masses in the big cities and small country towns. Send your Spirit into the conservative churches and the seeking churches. Send your Spirit to the affluent business men and unknown poor who need You. Please forgive our pride in this big state and draw us to our knees to know that You are the One and Only.

    Please Lord, God…send Your spirit into our nation’s capitol and into our congress. Please change the hearts and souls of these congressmen to look after Your people and not their own greed in the name of Jesus. Amen
