The Power of Prayer
In 1982, I heard Brother Andrew present a bold prayer project at Hospital Christian Fellowship: “We are going to launch a Seven-Year Jericho Prayer March to bring down the Iron Curtain and open up Russia and Eastern Europe to the Gospel!” At the time, I remember being somewhat bewildered. I had been to the Berlin Wall and seen the Iron Curtain. Like many others in the 1980s, I was convinced that the Iron Curtain was a permanent fact of life and that it would be up until Jesus returned. However, seven years later, in 1989, we saw the culminative effect of that concentrated focus of persistent prayer, as the Berlin Wall came down and the Iron Curtain collapsed and all of Eastern Europe and Russia were opened up for freedom of religion!
“If you abide in Me and My Words abide in you, you will ask what you desire and it shall be done for you.”
