149 days until the Greenock, Scotland Revival Conference

D.L. Moody once heard a man say that the world has yet to see what one man, fully surrendered, can accomplish for God. Moody said he would be that man, and he wrought great things for the Kingdom, and moved two nations Godward.

A New York business man paraphrased that statement that stirred Moody’s soul, and applied it to the realm of prayer. He said: “It yet remains to be seen what great things GOD WILL DO, in answer to the prayer of faith of any of His children!”

This same principle of the unthinkably great results that can be achieved by the believing intercession of a single individual was expressed by Rev. Samuel Chadwick when he was principal of Cliff College in England. He said: “The fervent supplication of one soul moved of God is an immeasurable force.”

One of the most striking examples in the Christian era of the immeasurably great and far-reaching effects of persistent, long-continued prayer is found in the history of the Moravian Church. Soon after the memorable outpouring of God’s Spirit at Herrnhut, Germany, in 1727, they began a prayer meeting which continued day and night for one hundred years.

In speaking of the prayer meeting and its results, Bishop Hasse says: “Was there ever in the whole of Church history such an astonishing prayer meeting as that which beginning in 1727, went on one hundred years? It is something absolutely unique. It was known as the ‘Hourly Intercession,’ and it meant that by relays of brethren and sisters prayer without ceasing was made to God for all the work and wants of His Church.

“Prayer of that kind always leads to action. In this case it kindled a burning desire to make Christ’s salvation known to the heathen. It led to the beginning of modern foreign missions. From that one small village community more than one hundred missionaries went out in twenty-five years. You will look in vain elsewhere for anything to match it in anything like the same extent.”

Bishop Hasse has only touched the fringe of the results that flowed forth from this hundred-years-long prayer meeting. The Moravian missionaries went forth as flaming, Spirit-filled messengers, seeing multitudes born again in the American colonies and in other lands.

And it was the Moravian missionaries in England who led John and Charles Wesley into the full gospel of grace, and so had a very real share in the revival that swept over England and saved her from the horrors of the revolution that deluged France with blood… -George T. B. Davis
