THE GREAT REVIVAL AT GROUND ZERO IN NEW YORK, 1857



THE GREAT REVIVAL AT GROUND ZERO IN NEW YORK, 1857



In the shadow of Ground Zero in New York City,  150 years before the world-shaking 9/11 event took place, one man invited others to join him in prayer at a church on Fulton Street.  Within months, 10,000 were standing outside of the church waiting to get into pray.  A Great Awakening ensued and swept the nation.  Over 1 million received salvation.  That is the equivalent of 10 million being saved today.  This Awakening then swept the world!  Passengers on ships coming into New York harbor fell under the Presence of the Holy Spirit while the ships were 20 miles off the coast of America.  Hundreds experienced salvation.  This was one of the Greatest Awakenings in American history!  It was called the "Prayer Revival."
