Proclaiming Pentecost is a grass roots movement to celebrate Pentecost Eve in unity.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
We are all praying for revival and transformation for our cities. In 2015 God brought Sydney together at Pentecost Eve to pray for the city, the country, and beyond. Since then, celebrations of Pentecost have been occurring every year in Sydney and many other places across the world.
As we gather in humility and worship to pray, we witness the power of the Holy Spirit sweeping across our cities, bringing holiness, revival, righteousness, healing, forgiveness through the power of prayer.
Revivals and Awakenings: each is divine in nature and often contrary or external to the programs of men (believers and unbelievers), and they have a profound effect and legacy on the communities that experience them. 7 principles (or characteristics) of revival:
- God’s Sovereignty (His timing – Acts 2:1)
- Prayer (Acts 1:14; 2:1)
- Unity (Acts 2:1)
- Obedience to the Spirit (Acts 2:4)
- Preaching (Acts 2:14)
- Repentance (Acts 2:37-38)
- Evangelism (Acts 2:41)
(From “What Is Revival” in the book “Flashpoints of Revival” by Dr. Geoff Waugh.)
The goal of one body, many parts (1 Corinthians 12:12) is most readily realised in prayer. Christians can disagree on many matters, but can also be united to pray for the needs of our community, the prime of which is for all peoples to be restored into relationship with the Father.
Taking this to heart, we earnestly look for and pray for revival, and in faith prepare by humbling ourselves, praying in meekness, turning from our self-determining ways, and seeking instead the face of God our Father (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Gathering together as one body, one church before our King Christ Jesus, and putting aside our differences of opinion and revelation to publicly recognise and worship the one true Lord and our Bridegroom fulfils Jesus’ prayer in John 17, and unlocks transformational blessing over our nations and cities. We also recommend a ‘passing the baton’ of blessing and an Act of Repentance at each celebration – read more here: Proclaiming Pentecost An Act of Repentance (PDF document).
