It’s rare (and rarely good) when a Christian college chapel makes the evening news. But a service that began last Wednesday at Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky is still going, and news outlets have noticed. Now “The Asbury Awakening” is attracting visitors from all over. As one observer described 

When I arrived, I saw hundreds of students singing quietly. They were praising and praying earnestly for themselves and their neighbors and our world—expressing repentance and contrition for sin and interceding for healing, wholeness, peace, and justice.   

Nearly 300 years ago, Jonathan Edwards offered five marks of a true work of the Holy Spirit. A true revival elevates Christ, opposes sin and Satan, prizes the Bible, distinguishes truth from error, and manifests love. So far, so good. Please pray for the students, leadership, and visitors of Asbury University, that what we are seeing there will spread and grow, renew the hearts of God’s people, and heal the wounds of our troubled land.
