Over 260,000 People Join World War II Veteran in Praying for a 'Spiritual Awakening'

On Tuesday, World War II veteran Rev. Fred Lunsford prayed for a spiritual awakening in an online prayer meeting with more than 250,000 people. Lunsford, who has pastored for 70 years in North Carolina, fell ill two years ago and prayed that God would take him home, but God had other plans for the war hero, CBN News reports. “Two years ago, I thought I was going to die at the age of 93,” Lunsford said.

“I was very sick and asked the Lord to let me die. I wanted to go to heaven, but God said, ‘Not yet!'” Lunsford challenged God asking him, “Why are you leaving me here?” God answered Lunsford by requesting he “pray for a spiritual awakening!” Since then, a faithful servant of Christ, Lunsford has done just that. In his personal prayer garden nestled in the mountains of Marble, N.C., Lunsford has steadfastly prayed for a revival.

“[God] extended my years for a reason, and He wanted me to pray for spiritual awakening and to get as many people praying as I could,” Lunsford told CBN News. “God spoke into my heart, and I yielded to it. It’s not me; it’s the Lord,” he asserted. In January, Lunsford invited Mud Creek Baptist Church pastor Rev. Greg Mathis to pray for a revival with him. Mathis described the prayer experience as powerful, noting that he had “felt God in a way that I hadn’t experienced in a long time.” “Heaven came down and the area in which we were praying could barely contain us,” he added. The initial plan was to have hundreds of pastors join Lunsford on the mountain to pray for an awakening, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, new plans had to be made.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
