The fires of revival continue to burn at Asbury University in Kentucky and numerous reports reveal the Holy Spirit has ignited several other flames that are now burning brightly at other universities and colleges around the country.

As CBN News has reported, the revival at Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky, is now on its 10th day as thousands of people continue to make the spiritual pilgrimage to this town in hopes of encountering more of God.

Just 249 miles to the south, a revival at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee is well underway. Local news reports indicate the Lee revival has now been ongoing since Monday.

'Spontaneous Worship and Prayer'

There are also reports of spontaneous prayer and worship among the students at Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio, and at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.

Cedarville University President Thomas White shared five short video clips of the revival at his school Tuesday night.

"Tonight a large number of students gathered again to pray, read Scripture, testimonies and to worship Jesus for about two hours! We had two more students saved tonight. Tomorrow night we are sending our students out to other universities to share the gospel," he wrote. "Keep praying for wisdom and a genuine movement of the Lord! The last video is from students who stayed around to keep worshipping. They were still there when I left about 11 p.m.!"

In an email to the Cedarville faculty and staff earlier this week, White wrote, "We are so thankful for how God is working on our campus in recent days."

The university's president explained it all began on Monday during Cedarville's morning campus chapel service while he led the students in studying Psalm 86 in the Bible's Old Testament. White then described what happened next.

During that song, the first person to come to the altar to pray was a faculty member. He was followed by students, one after another. As I walked back up to the stage, I knew the sermon was over and God was moving," he said.
