Hundreds of Korean Intercessors Come to Pray for America on Anniversary of Historic Billy Graham Crusade


From June 1-5, hundreds of intercessors from South Korea will be in 20 cities throughout America to pray for revival, and the leader of a national prayer movement is encouraging churches across the country to hold their own prayer meetings at the same time.

"They'll come to cities from coast to coast and border to border to pray morning noon and night," said P. Douglas Small, President of Project Pray, which is hosting "America's Prayer Meeting."

Small is encouraging churches across the country to open their doors for prayer during that time, which culminates on Pentecost Sunday, June 5.

"We're asking churches to open their doors and call for prayer. To host prayer meetings, not preaching meetings, prayer meetings to pray for this nation, for revival and spiritual awakening," he said.

The 20 teams of intercessors are associated with the World School of Prayer in Seoul, South Korea.

The intercessors are visiting on the 49th anniversary of Billy Graham's 1973 crusade in Seoul. The historic event ran from May 30-June 3 and drew more than 3 million people, with approximately 75,000 of them committing their lives to Christ.

Korean Christians say it changed the direction of the nation.

"After the crusade, the prayer revival broke out in many different churches in South Korea. Even revival broke out ... churches started to grow," Aaron Park, Executive Director of the World School of Prayer, says. "Through the prayer revival and church growth, God brought us the blessing, economically and spiritually."

Now, the grandchildren of that revival are returning to give America a spiritual boost.
