Scripture Focus…

(1) The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,
(Is. 61:1 Amp.)


The following commentary was taken from The Revival Study Bible:

Isa 61:1 Proclaim liberty to the captives
Count Zinzendorf enumerates the Moravian method in proclaiming salvation: To point out to every heart the Loving Lamb who died for us and, although He was the Son of God, offered Himself for our sins. [The Loving Iambi as his God, his Mediator between God and man, his throne of grace, his example, his brother, his preacher of the law, his comforter, his confessor, his Savior, in short, his all in all. By the preaching of His blood, and of His love unto death even the death of the cross, never, either in the discourse or in the argument, to digress even for a quarter of an hour from the Loving Lamb. To name no virtue except in Him, and from Him and on His account. To preach no commandment except faith in
Him; no other justification but that He atoned for us; no other sanctification but the privilege to sin no more. No other happiness but to be near Him, to think of Him and do His pleasure; no other self-denial but to be deprived of Him and His blessings; no other calamity but to displease Him; no other life but in Him.

The following excerpt is taken from an article by Benjamin Schafer:

The Herrnhut Revival of 1727

During the following months, the spirit of prayer manifested in several of the groups that Zinzendorf had initiated. This led to ever-growing prayer gatherings, as well as the first “night watch,” which began on August 5th. The days that followed were marked by an outpouring of the Holy Spirit (even among the children), which manifested in emotional and ecstatic prayer and singing meetings. On August 13th, 1727, these corporate meetings came to a climax; the entire community had been called together for the celebration of the Holy Communion, in which all discord between them found an end and real unity grew in them while singing hymns in brokenness and tears.

Soon after the night of Holy Communion, some of the citizens committed themselves to a chain of unceasing day and night prayer, which found no break for over one hundred years (which is the specific spiritual practice that is further investigated in the next chapter). Along with non-ceasing prayer, several other spiritual practices were established in Herrnhut. For instance, the lovefeast, the washing of feet, nightly song services, fixed hour prayers in the morning, as well as the reading of the daily scripture that was chosen by the casting of lots. At the same time, the idea and reality of the Daily Text Book emerged, which is still popular and in still in use today.

Continued Praying…

We come by the precious blood today
Thank You that we don’t have to worry but can come boldly to You
We are grateful that You will do all that You said You would
There is nothing that the blood can’t overcome!
Every sin has been defeated
Father, we humble ourselves before You and yield to You
Thank You for the work that was done on the cross
Holy Spirit, we welcome You today!
We yield to Your ways, Lord!
Pour out the rain of Your Spirit – fall fresh on us!
Seeing low places that need to be filled in and smoothed out
Steadily bringing them up!
Restored, made fresh and new
It is a part of the last hours
Things that were broken are being restored
Conditions clearing up
We call that healed, whole, and restored
Miraculous demonstrations are beginning to take place
Walking in the clean and right way
Limits and barriers must be removed so we can run all the way to the end
Do not back away, but continue to press and contend in that way
Calling situations to shape up and be right!
Keep asking, believing, and doing the work and all of it shall be carried out
Receiving answers and solutions
The Masters way is complete
Every division, separation, and crack being restored and mended
Calling for the right timing of that
We cooperate with You, Lord!
