An announcement came over the airport loudspeaker, alerting me that our plane was delayed due to bad weather. I was returning to the United States from Bacolod, the beautiful capital city of the Negros Occidental province in the Philippines. As one hour passed, then another, I was sure I would not make my connection from Manila to Washington. My heart sank and I began praying. “Lord, you know that this connection is very important to me. Tomorrow I meet my grandson Benjamin, back in the States, to spend a long weekend with him. I’ve been looking forward to this time together! Please Lord, help me not to miss my connection home.”
Financial planner Vince Waln credits the Holy Spirit and a pipe organ for transforming a declining church of 15 people into a vibrant congregation of about 85 in three years in the U.S. state of Ohio. Vince, the church’s lay pastor, expresses amazement at the remarkable change at the Hamilton Seventh-day Adventist Church in Hamilton, a city of 62,500 people located 20 miles (30 kilometers) north of Cincinnati. “It’s been a miracle week after week,” he said. “God is in control..."
The testimony started when I received a personal e-mail from a stranger. I will call her Laura to protect her privacy. Her e-mail was essentially a desperate plea for help. “I need someone to pray for me and advise me on how to fast and pray. Please pray for me. Our marriage has serious problems, which is leaving me emotionally broken. And because of that, I am struggling spiritually. I feel I am going deeper and deeper into things, which are not good. I can't pray, I can't read the Bible..."

Praising God for how He showed up in the 10 Days of Prayer. God called young and old to a revival by the Spirit! We met together to pray in small groups led by elders, and I facilitated from the front to keep young and old engaged. We moved everyone into the fellowship hall for our Sabbath worship service so that the rest of the church could experience 10 Days of Prayer with it’s fellowship, prayer, singing, and testimonies in small groups.
Our 10 Days of Prayer and the all-night prayer session was a blessing. Usually the ending of the all-night begins to slow down. But this time the last couple of hours (led by young people who shared their testimonies) were really powerful!
This was our first time participating in the Ten Days of Prayer. During the ten days, we had a 24-hour prayer chain. Basically, one person prays for an hour and at the end of the hour calls the next prayer warrior to pray. I am in awe of what God did. Chains of anger, unforgiveness, and many more were broken. We are enjoying unity in our church. The twenty-four prayer team members have asked me to keep the team. To God be the glory!
Thank you so much for 10 Days of Prayer. We joined this program in 2013. We wanted to let you know the amazing things that have happened to our church since then. It is revived and growing little by little. Member interest in soul winning activity is growing.
