  • A simple invitation to pray



    IT WAS JUST a SIMPLE INVITATION to PRAY


    It was just a simple invitation to pray that led a small group of

    people in 1898 to meet on Saturday evenings from 9 to 10 for

    prayer. They met at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago to cry

    out for an awakening. Within a short time, the group grew to 300

    passionate intercessors. A few members remained to agonize

    and intercede into the early hours one Sunday morning.


    R. A. Torrey joined this small group to pray for a worldwide

    revival. During that intense intercession, Torrey asked God to

    send him around the world. Within a week of the close of the

    prayer meeting, two strangers approached Torrey and asked

    him to come to Melbourne, Australia to preach. These two men

    had left Australia months before in search of a man that they

    believed God would use to bring revival to their nation. Upon

    meeting Torrey, they felt they had found God's man.


    The result of that Chicago prayer meeting was an invitation for

    Torrey to come to Australia. Torrey arrived in Australia in 1902.

    15,000 tried to pack themselves into the meeting hall. It is

    estimated that Torrey and his partner Alexander led over 100,000

    souls into the Kingdom of God.


    All this had its beginning in Chicago with a small group of people

    praying, "Revive thy work, Oh Lord!" May God raise up such prayer

    warriors in our day who will daily cry out, " REVIVE THEY WORK,

    OH LORD!"
