Pastor Farley Painter: Having heard the Prayer Revival tapes I was impressed to have Smiley do this seminar in my church. All I can is that the tapes, as good as they are, cannot begin to compare with sitting in the anointing of these Prayer Revival meetings - it truly was a powerful Prayer Revival for my members and me - our church will never be the same. God has renewed a passion in our hearts to pray for souls, new converts, backsliders and our nation. As Smiley said it would, the seminar did accomplish its five-fold purpose…~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. We received a fresh revelation of prayer - unless you have the revelation of something you'll never do it.
2. A renewed vision of what a true New Testament praying church is was imparted to us through the video Smiley shot of Bro. Cho's church in Soeul, Korea. The strong anointing of prayer on that church is on this video and touched our hearts.
3. We experienced an impartation of the anointing of prayer by the laying on of hands and nightly prayer participation. Jesus said, "My house shall be a house of prayer…"
4. We implemented a divine strategy of prayer that Smiley introduced through the Prayer Bible Markers.
5. These Prayer Bible Markers are also maintaining us in the momentum of prayer.
Pastor Nick Manassa: Your "Prayer Revival for the Harvest" seminar was outstanding. My wife and I and our congregation are still feeling the powerful effect of it and putting into practice the truths you imparted to us. Your teaching was deliberate, anointed and thorough. Your enthusiasm and sincerity was so refreshing. The revelation that came forth has motivated us to pray more than ever before. From Sunday through to Wednesday night you fed the people and our congregation will never have a dull prayer life again. I highly recommend this seminar. It is so important to living a victorious and fruitful Christian life. You reaffirmed in the hearts of our people that prayer is the key to reaping and keeping a great harvest of fruit that remains - like Jesus, Paul and Epaphras did.
From previous Prayer Revivals I've conducted across America I believe this is one of the strongest anointings on my life - to revive the church to pray in the harvest. Without this, we will at best get limited results in all our Evangelism/Shepherding efforts.
I sincerely believe the single greatest need in America is to bring the church back to the success pattern of the early church, which is to revive the spirit of intercession for the lost - not a team of faithful intercessors, but congregation of New Testament saints effectively praying in the harvest producing fruit that remains.
Jesus said, "My house shall be called a house of prayer, but you have made it… (fill in the blank)" Matt 21:13
It would be awesome if we could take your entire church to Korea to see for themselves why they are getting 11,000 souls saved a month - if they could catch that prayer vision and anointing - well they can, because I'm going to bring that vision & anointing into your church in the form of a video I shot there - everyone needs to see this video. The anointing and spirit of prayer that is on Dr. Cho's church is on this video and will be imparted to your people - each night of this seminar this anointing will grow stronger and stronger. This is far more than a prayer teaching with dynamic life changing revelation, but a powerful impartation of the anointing and spirit of prayer - coupled with great strategy to maintain it's momentum to assure it produces the results of a greatly increased harvest with fruit that remains.
