Text: And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?(Luke 18:1-8)
Tweet: Count Nicholaus Von Zinzindorf once said, â€œI have one passion: it is He, He alone.â€ Count Von Zinzindorf founded a small German colony named Herrnhut, which means, â€œthe Lordâ€™ s Watch.â€ Here, on August 13, 1727, the Moravian Prayer Movement, arguably the greatest prayer movement in all of Christian history, began a small twenty-four-hour a day intercessory prayer meeting. It lasted for one hundred years and is credited with the birth of the modern missionary movement, since more than one hundred missionaries were sent out by the praying Moravians of Herrnhut. It was some of these Moravian missionaries, who were sailing to the Georgia colony on a ship with John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, who so greatly influenced Wesleyâ€™s life.
