Thousands of viewers joined SBC Executive Committee president and CEO Ronnie Floyd on Tuesday (May 5), for Praying on the Mountain, an online prayer experience. Held in conjunction with an event birthed by Fred Lunsford, a 95-year-old retired pastor from North Carolina, viewers were guided through a call to prayer for spiritual awakening in America.
The online gathering also included the amazing story, told by Lunsford, of how God impressed him to call others to pray. Two years ago, while alone in his prayer garden, he told God: “Nobody wants an old, broke-down preacher. I think it would be best if you just brought me on home.”
A still, small voice told him: “Not yet.”
Tuesday’s gathering was at least one reason for that answer. More than 250,000 people signed up to participate in the prayer event. The entire event is archived online at sbc.net/pray for you to view and pray along with.
