I Prayed have prayed
Father, we join our Korean brothers and sisters in prayer for a great revival. Rekindle the fire in the American church, God.
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Over 200 South Korean believers have traveled to America to repay what they view as a spiritual debt. They have come to pray for revival. We must join our fellow intercessors in praying for revival for our nation.

From CBN News. From Bellingham, Washington, to Los Angeles to Bangor, Maine to Miami, 240 South Korean Christians have been blanketing these and 17 other cities this week, praying for healing and for revival to sweep America.

Visit your state page to pray.


Pastor Jae Choon Choi with Seoul’s Kwangmyung Church is among those who traveled from Seoul for the prayer initiative.

“Just as the first missionaries from the United States came to our nation and spread the fire of the gospel we want to bring that fire back to America,” Choi told CBN News.

The 21 teams of intercessors arrived in the States this week on the 49th anniversary of Billy Graham’s historic 1973 crusade in Seoul which drew more than 3 million people.

During that 5-day crusade, 75,000 people reportedly gave their lives to Christ, leading to a huge Christian revival felt not only in South Korea, but in other parts of Asia in the years since….

Now the grandchildren of that revival that touched South Korea have come to our shores to pay back what they say is a spiritual debt to America….

It is thrilling to know that these Korean believers are praying for revival in the USA! I say THANK YOU to all of them! May the Lord hear their prayers and bring about a national revival. We are desperate for God. May we humble ourselves and pray with them, seeking His face, and turn from our wicked ways!! He is our only hope.

Oh thank YOU JESUS! Oh FATHER GOD thank YOU for sending our brothers and sisters in the LORD from South Korea to America to pray for us! How humbling and encouraging to know this! Bless them and protect them! Just knowing this makes me weep with joy and strengthens me to keep on praying for our country in JESUS NAME! Amen!

On any given morning the church bells in cities across South Korea
can be heard calling the Chrisitians to dawn prayer meetings. This heart of prayer blesses their nation, our nation and wherever the thousands of Korean missionaries are scattered – including the USA. Praise God!

Thank you brothers and sisters in Christ who come from far away to pray for America to come back to God. I love you so much. May God bless you and keep you.

I am so moved by what I just read….God bless South Korea, God’s children, and God Bless America. Let us move on your behalf Lord, let us hear and obey the voice of your Holy Spirit. Let us follow in the example of our South Korean brothers and sisters Lord, and continue to evangelize and spread your word. I pray in the name of Jesus that you would bless them, protect them, and let their fervor and your Fire spread throughout our Nation.

This thrills my heart because I know it was the Holy Spirit that prompted those precious saints to come to pray for America. May we in America therefore become aware of how far we have gone away from our God and Savior Jesus. God is doing everything He can “to get our attention”, to wake up the sleeping saints and the wayward sinners…so my prayer is that people “will respond to His call for repentance” that He may be able to bless our land again. Indeed, we, the Church in America, have sown the precious gospel to others. May it’s truth return unto us. Amen.

This is a blessing. America has been a Beacon of Hope, Light, and Help, to many nations. Praise the Lord for our Brothers and Sisters from S. Korea who have felt the Burden to pray for us.

Thank you to all who have come to pray for America.

Lord Jesus we pray II Chronicles 7:14: if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
I bend my knee humbly to thee O God for you are the almighty and I thank you in advance.

In some ways I am saddened that this once great bastion of Christian servitude to the nations is now on the opposite side of that. What does it say to the world now that among everything else that the current occupant of the White House has done to completely ruin this nations reputation…. he has also emboldened the immoral actions of the homosexual world to the point that I see this nation as another Sodom and Gomorrah! But….perhaps as God in the past blessed the actions of the missionaries from America to the world…He will bless the actions of new missionaries from the world to this nation. Indeed we need to pray for another Great Awakening revival in this nation again. Pray for the Word to saturated into our peoples lives and that II Corinthians 7:14 will truly take hold and God does indeed HEAL OUR LAND!!

We pray for revival all over the world, not only for America, but for many of the nations that were once strongly influenced by Jesus Christ that have fallen from their calling into worldly values opposed to the will of our Father in heaven. England, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Canada, USA, and others where great revivals and men of God once preached the gospel. Let these nations return to God, and spread the good news of the gospel world wide. Amen

Thank you Lord for these brothers and sisters. Thank you that you have sent them to lift up our “spiritual arms “in prayer . You are a good ,good Father . May the world know that we belong to You by the love and value we place on one another. One day ALL the nations will bow before You and rejoice before Your throne . Praise the Lord our God .

We praise you that the revival in Korea is still bearing fruit and is spreading to our sinful country. Spread the fire here and multiply prayer warriors. You cannot ignore the prayers of your people as we humble ourselves before you. Bless these dear Korean brothers and sisters for their zeal for you.

June 9, 2022

What a beautiful event to take place these years later! God will continue to touch hearts no matter what is going on in the world. and I pray all who are touched will have the courage to act.

June 9, 2022

That the Ekklasia (the Church) would humble ourselves. We have left our first love, our lamps have no oil (no Presence of the Holy Spirit) in many churches, and if we’re scarcely saved, where does that leave the world? Before a Great Awakening must come a great cleansing in us.

Lord I pray that United States will turn back from it sinful nature. I pray that the terrible sin of abortion will be abolished, the Bible will be allowed back into the classroom, indoctrination of children into sexual perversion be halted , That prayer will be allowed in school, and that parents will again take responsibility for their children’s spiritual life. I pray against The sexual perversion that has overtaken this country. I pray that there will be a realization that there are only male and female and no other sexes. I pray that your Bible once again be seen as your word and the rules for our life.

John 6:28-29“What must we do to perform the works of God?” Jesus replied, “The work of God is this: to believe in the One He has sent.”

Luke 10:17-20 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in Your name.” So He told them, ““I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. Nothing will harm you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

Revelation 13:6 And the beast opened its mouth to speak blasphemies against God and to slander His name and His tabernacle–those who dwell in heaven.

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was hurled down–that ancient serpent called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Hebrews 2:14-15 Now since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity, so that by His death He might destroy him who holds the power of death, that is, the devil and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

John 1:16 From His fullness we have all received grace upon grace

Dear Almighty God, You are Maker of Heaven and earth. You will not continue to endure the irreverence of the deceiver. Although he was expelled from Heaven, he still continues to pervert truth and promote death. I pray such a blessing of power and authority upon each one of these missionaries. I pray such a blessing of power and authority upon each appeal made in the Name of Jesus Christ. He sacrificed His Life on the Cross to free us from death. Increase our faith Lord. I pray the fullness of Christ in the lives of these and all of us for Your Glory and our good. Amen

Oh God pour out a spirit of true repentance and conversion in America. Make us like Nineveh that repented and not like Sodom and Gomorrah that were destroyed. You are a great and generous God. Please graciously hear our prayers.
Let righteousness reign down and salvation spring up because you the Lord have created it.
Isaiah 45:8. AMEN

What a wonderful example of unity in the body of Christ! We, through Billy Grahm, ministered to them years ago, now they are ministering to us in our current time of need. How grateful I am to them for doing this – we are to encourage each other and pray for one another. May God use them to accomplish His good purposes here in America. Thank you, brothers and sisters in Christ! http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com

Our Father in heaven! Please open Americans’ spiritual eyes and ears, so that they can see the truth. Please pour your mercy and Grace into America. Please help us to repent and come back to you in Jesus Christ.

I am a Christian in RI. I was raised as a Buddhist and taught Buddhism for 36 years. One day, Jesus came to me, that changed my life.

Since that moment, my life totally changed. Holy Spirit guided me not to follow anti Christ stuffs; other religions including Buddhism, communism, materialism, feminism, etc.

And I learned numerous of great American Christians came to Korea risking their lives. It was very touching and moving.

I also would like to pay that debt back to Americans to please God, the only truth, the light, the life, Jesus Christ!

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 그런즉 너희는 하나님께 순복할찌어다 마귀를 대적하라 그리하면 너희를 피하리라

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 하나님을 가까이 하라 그리하면 너희를 가까이 하시리라 죄인들아 손을 깨끗이 하라 두 마음을 품은 자들아 마음을 성결케 하라

I am praising God for raising up the South Korean Christians and gave them the desire to come and pray for America. I am so thankful. God is faithful. He is our mighty God.

We’ve asked over 10,000 churches to prayer walk their entire communities and give every home a gospel gift pack (we supply free) with and invitation to their church. Over 30 million homes have been prayed for so far in the last 48 months. We want to mobilize and equip another 30,000 churches to pray at every home in America with your help.

We, a group of approx 70-80 from around the state, met and experienced the Koreans praying for us at Liberty Square in Charleston South Carolina. Me and my wife cried when they shared why they came, “to repay a spiritual debt to America”. Shofars were blown and there were several prophetic words spoken that were timely and in my mind spot on! One that stood out to me was basically, in a nutshell, comparing the Civil War which started in Charleston, to a new spiritual war “starting today in Charleston”. It was very powerful! On a side note we found it a bit interesting that it had been 49 years since the Billy Graham crusade in Korea, and it was the 49th day of counting the omer toward Pentecost (Shavuot in Hebrew) Lev 23

June 9, 2022

In case any Koreans who’ve traveled here to pray for revival ever see my comment, THANK YOU!
May God bless you richly for your seeds sewn here in the US.

June 9, 2022

Awesome and Amen..!!
Thank-You our South Korean Brothers and Sisters in Christ for your Love and Compassion for us
Americans…., Hallelujah.
The Lord Bless Thee and Keep thee.!!

Praying for more people, especially those guiding others to: realize and teach/tell/advertise and make decisions accordingly that:
1) Human life begins at conception, plus love says avoid condemning and have compassion to supply and organize more help practically and guidance for mothers and babies to find good path for both.
2) Chromosomes declare gender rather than any human’s opinion. Doctors are not just giving opinion about gender of baby. Child should not be asked for opinion what gender.
3) Much truth is objective. Help people realize which is subjective preference opinion and which is objective truth.
4) It is OK to listen to people’s different opinions and try to understand why they think that, rather than demonizing the person or shutting them up from saying. Maybe you might be able to help them into greater nuance of truth and love and understanding how they arrived at their thought and vice-versa they to you. Brainstorming might help.
5) The principle that government is not to make law establishing a certain Religion can also include not to establish “wokeness”, secularism, humanism, as government religions declaring no one can talk about God or Bible in public. Separation of church and state was meant to protect people from government infringing on their worship, not meant to protect government from religion. The context of separation of church and state was that British government of England supported church of England and persecuted those going to other churches; which was why many fled England to come to U.S.A.
