In 1999 a single, unsuspecting prayer room in England began to spontaneously multiply, touching 46 nations and millions of lives within a matter of months. Every minute since that moment has been filled with unbroken (24-7) prayer, everywhere from the U S Naval Academy and the slums of Delhi to a Swiss skate park and a German punk festival. This movement of prayer is generating miracles, new monasteries and missions deep into the heart of the postmodern culture. "Red Moon Rising will also look at the history of the church showing that 24-7 prayer is not a new model of prayer but has been deployed by God down through generations.
"Red Moon Rising by Pete Greig and Dave Roberts shows the fascinating history behind the 24/7 Prayer Movement. A night of prayer for the nations leads to a vision of an army of young people awaiting orders. A youth pastor cries and wrestles with Gods silence when prayer is all he has left. And the history of a tiny village in Germany holds the key to a movement that changes lives.
With this intriguing beginning, narrator Pete Greig shares the story of the radical movement that soon grew beyond his founding. Central to 24/7 is the prayer room, a small room set apart for prayer, whether written or drawn, spoken aloud or in the heart. Modeling the historic Moravians of Hernnhut, who set prayer watches and prayed nonstop for 100 years, Greig planned for his church in Chichester, England, to pray 24 hours a day in the prayer room for an entire month. Time slots were quickly filled and when the month was over, no one wanted to stop. The concept quickly spread to other cities, and then internationally.
"Brimming with prayers and anecdotes, Red Moon Rising presents extreme concepts in ways adults can understand and young people will enjoy. The narrative drags a bit at times in comparison to fast-paced portions, but each chapter is broken up in small sections for easy reading. As the movement stretches beyond denominational barriers, you may not agree with every method used, but keep reading. Your prayer life will be challenged as never before." -- Katie Hart, Christian Book Previews.com
