Red Moon Rising presents the story of the 24/7 prayer movement as told by founder Pete Greig. Pete shares his journey of how the 24/7 prayer movement began. A simple vision of prayer ministry that Lord gave Pete through a poem in 1999 exploded into a global prayer movement. From his humble Anglican Church home in Brompton, London, Pete’s vision for a 24/7 prayer sparked a prayer revival across all of Europe. In “Satan’s background”, as it seemed, prayer houses were set up as missionaries moved into some of the most debilitating communities to simply pray. Night and day, prayer missionaries would cry out with unceasing prayer for the Lord to bring revival and restoration to their communities. And the Lord responded.
During my undergraduate years at Florida State University, my campus ministry, the Wesley Foundation, participated in this 24/7 prayer movement each semester by establishing a week of 24/7 prayer. Students filled up 168 one-hour time slots for prayer and intercession as we shared in the global prayers for the restoration and revival of our community. When our week finished, we passed the torch onto the next group who would continue in prayer: 24/7.
This book is filled with amazing stories of God’s movement across the world through 24/7 prayer. It is inspiring. It is reviving. It will make you want to join in the prayers of the saints.
