USA (MNN) — Life Action Ministries partnered with two other organizations to present "Seeking Him: A National Prayer Meeting for Revival."
The meeting actually happened everywhere around the United States at the same time each week via radio. Byron Paulus, president of Life Action Ministries, says it is refreshing
to stop and think that "in times when we want to race to music and messages, radio air time is being given over to nothing but prayer–men and women crying out to God to intervene

More than 100 radio stations took part in this movement once weekly on Saturday mornings. "I think many of them are doing it because they realize that we are in the midst of a 150th anniversary of the Last Great Awakening, known as the prayer revival [1857-1858]," said Paulus.
He says many Christians believe that "if God's going to move again, like 150 years ago, its going to be birthed on our knees in prayer."
During the weekly radio prayer time, prayers were focused on God's heart, asking that His power would be unleashed from Heaven. There are many stories of hearts being strengthened in prayer through these revival programs.

throughout the country since then.
Though it was scheduled to end on December 1, Paulus says "God knows how long he wants His people
