Subject: DAY 32 IN 40 DAYS OF PRAYER for revival !! Taylor’s furnace burns even hotter as they pass the prayer torch to The Ohio State University!
From Taylor University DAYS 29-31:
By 8 pm CST, the Taylor University prayer room was still indeed a furnace of prayer—too fired up to stop praying!! More to come…
“WE’RE DOING IT! I have so much joy right now, I’m not sure I’ll be able to go to bed. I gate keep at 4am, so I really need to. ‘The fire is continually burning upon the altar…’ and it is so beautiful. It really feels like we are on this mini-pilgrimage as the prayer baton is passed hour after hour. And WOW, does time fly in the boiler room! An hour seems like 10 minutes. People are signing up to pray two hours instead of one. I’ll try to post every day. Pray for us at OSU.
PRAISE YOU FATHER! COME AND SET OUR HEARTS ON FIRE FOR YOU!”

We invite you to join us again this semester to seek God’s face in prayer and to intercede for our friends, our loved ones and our campus. We are inviting the entire body of Christ to come and pray together in unity in a 48-hour prayer room graciously provided for us by First Presbyterian Church.
This Cal 48hr Prayer Furnace is not an isolated event but the end of a 40 day college prayer room chain started on January 20th. We are going to be the last college prayer room from forty continuous days of prayer starting with Azusa Pacific to Asbury College to UCLA, etc. Imagine the accumulation of 700 hours of prayers from thousands of brothers and sisters in Christ on 30 campuses across the nation over the last few weeks! You can read the awesome things God is doing in these places here: http://www.40daysofprayer.blogspot.com/
The Prayer Furnace is also the advance prayer cover for a coordinated campus-wide evangelistic outreach sponsored by the fellowships in Unity in Christ that will happen in the weeks of March and April. The outreach is collectively named “Taste and See,” and powerful, united prayer is essential to its effectiveness.
Therefore, our purpose is two fold: we are here to seek the heart of God to first be revived, and then receive empowerment to proclaim the Kingdom of God to our campus. Here are the details:
Furnace Days: 6PM, Sunday Feb 26 – 6 PM, Tuesday, Feb 28
Furnace Kickoff Gathering: Sunday, Feb 26, First Pres Church. (Time: TBA)
Location: 2407 Dana Street, College Lounge in the Westminster Hall of First Pres Church. The entrance is on Dana. Note: this is NOT Westminster House on College and Bancroft where last semester’s prayer furnaces occurred.
From Becky: E. M. Bounds said, “Much prayer, much power; little prayer, little power.” What is being displayed by students across America is MUCH PRAYER. I’ve heard many of the students in every city lift up their prayers to the Father—they are passionate, fervent, sincere, humble, repentant, and absolutely determined-to-see-the-answers kind of prayers! Let us get rid of any unbelief. Instead, like the Psalmist who wrote, “I lay my requests before you and I WAIT IN EXPECTATION,” let us pray together, “Come Holy Spirit, Come in immediate outpouring and full power to our nation, to our schools; send revival.”
More to come…it is heating up!
