To encourage your faith dear saints of God. Through the remainder of the month I am going to be sharing with you powerful revival hotspots through history to encourage your faith and prayer life. Here is once such incident. Enjoy.
Some months since the leading members of many of the Methodist churches in the city, well known for their exemplary piety, constituted themselves a society with the object of promoting among the people an interest in religion. Their efforts have been attended with success beyond their most sanguine expectations; and as they labor during the entire Sabbath in a given church, and in another church the succeeding Sabbath, the organization has obtained in the levity of common remark, the name of the “Flying Artillery.” The force consist of between thirty and forty, mostly middle-aged persons, among whom is ex-Alderman Wesley Smith.
Soon after its organization, the “Praying Band,” or “Flying Artillery,” visited this church, and occupied an entire Sabbath in prayer and exhortation. Meetings have been held every evening since, and the large church has been crowded constantly. For two weeks in March, a daily prayer-meeting was held here, which was then removed to the Baptist Church. Upward of one hundred and fifty converts have already united with the church.
