God Is Moving In Tennessee
Apparently, the event has already sparked interest among the community, pastors say. CBN News reported that visitors attending the event said they can “feel the Holy Spirit as soon as you enter the building.”
“This is not about my church or a denomination, we are simply hosting an event in partnership with churches to see true lasting revival take place,” explained Rev. John Butler, the pastor of East Rogersville Baptist Church.
“The Holy Spirit came and took control,” he added. “From the first worship song, people began to flood the altar for prayer, and continued to do so for restoration and to receive Christ. We haven’t manipulated our people. They came expectant and God simply showed up.”
Churches United For The Heartbeat Of God
Furthermore, the East Tennessee coordinator for Awaken Tennessee, Sheldon Livesay, told the Rogersville Review why they’re doing so much for the prayer event.
“This rally is not about our church or any particular denomination. But it is our effort to join the concentrated prayer effort across the state for true revival in our churches that precipitates an awakening in our communities, state, and nation,” he said. “There are exponential results as you bring multiplied groups together to pray.”
Also, Dove Award-winning singers and songwriters Terry and Barbi Franklin started the month long event with powerful worship. Also, former members of the Gaither Vocal Band have also led the worship services.
“We’ve been praying for this kind of outpouring in our own nation for many years,” they said. “We’ve been longing to see America’s churches become houses of prayer again and revived in their first love for Jesus.”
This revival that is happening in Tennessee has been “exploding,” they say.
