Quarterly Prayer Concerts
by Robert Lee, director of Building Hope Community Life Center
God is calling Eastern NC to pray together for awakening and revival in our region and nation. The Quarterly Prayer Concerts began in 2010 based on the model provided by Jonathon Edwards in 1748 during the First Great Awakening. Edwards published a plea for united prayer entitled, An Humble Attempt to Promote Explicit Agreement and Visible Union of God’s People in Extraordinary Prayer. Edwards called churches from all denominations together on a quarterly basis to agree for revival and the spread of the Gospel message in their region.
The purpose of these Quarterly Prayer Concerts was to motivate ministers and believers of different Protestant Denominations to unite together as specific times to pray for God’s Kingdom to be advanced on earth. He believed “such prayer would gradually spread and increase more and more, ushering in a revival of religion.”
In the paper, Edwards gives the Scriptural mandates for united prayer, the promises of God upon such activity, and the reasons unity is so important to promote revival. Greenville and the surrounding areas of Eastern North Carolina have been blessed by God to have many powerful churches and leaders in the Body of Christ. Our call is to promote visible and unified efforts in prayer among these churches based on Zechariah 8:20-22, “Many people and strong nations shall come and seek the Lord of host.” Quarterly Concerts of Prayer are hosted at neutral locations where believers from all denominations and local churches can
join in prayer for God’s kingdom and revival to come to our area.
