The upper room in Jerusalem was the location of one of the most powerful moments in Biblical history. There, Jesus’ apostles prayed while waiting for the promised Holy Spirit. And today, another powerful moment has happened when prayer broke out among the visitors touring the upper room.
Jerusalem’s Upper Room
Worship leader Ryan Delling got to capture the special moment and posted to social media. According to Ryan, he had been to Jerusalem’s upper room many times. But always experienced a more revenant atmosphere during his visits. He said, “I have been to the upper room in Jerusalem many times over the years, and I have never seen this happen. Usually, it is fairly quiet with a few group singing songs.”
“But today, four groups were there from different nations, including Brazil, Ghana, [the] United States, and eastern Europe. Spontaneously all of these groups began praying out loud together without any music,” he continued.

Ryan shared that the prayers were individual to each visitor. Some prayed in tongues, others prayed in their own language, but most of all, everyone prayed.
“We are on the verge of the third Great awakening in America and the nations! Do it, Lord.”
Meanwhile, Robert Hotchkin, one of Patricia King’s core leaders, also got to visit on the same day when the worship and prayer happened. “This was a totally unplanned, Holy Spirit orchestrated move that came out of nowhere and went on for quite some time,” he said. “Multiple languages and many people groups, but all crying out for a move and baptism of the Spirit.”
Some believe that what happened in the upper room paralleled the day of Pentecost when the apostles received the Holy Spirit.
“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance,” Acts 2:4 says.
One thing’s for sure, the Holy Spirit is stirring a fresh move across the world today.
