Organizers of the One Blood Revival coming to Baton Rouge’s Memorial Stadium April 12-13 is asking the public to imagine a community where 92% of the population is born-again. From its website, they challenge residents to “picture city jails that have been closed for lack of crime. Envision an economy where agricultural productivity has reached Biblical proportions. Imagine a city where thousands of Christians gather together for all-night prayer vigils that spark a movement; bringing a multi-billion dollar drug cartel to its knees.”
The goal is for the city and surrounding areas to experience revival through unity in accordance with Act 2:1 which states, “…And they were all in ONE accord in ONE place.”
“If we come together, I believe we can see the city change,” said Pastor Devin O’Neal, of Voices of Mercy Outreach Ministries, who is organizing the faith-based initiative. He said, “The church is the only one that has the power to even have a moral effect” on the city’s disturbing number of shootings and killings, extreme poverty, historic flooding, racial divide, and the high rates of incarceration, illiteracy, cancer, and HIV.
For Pastor Wuan Miller, “The One Blood Revival is a call to the church at large to put down racial barriers and come together to worship the Lord as one UNIFIED body of Christ, both young and old.”
Miller is youth pastor at Living Faith Christian Center in Baton Rouge and one of 33 speakers planned for the two-day event. “The One Blood Revival is also a call to the church to pray for the healing of our land as one UNIFIED body of believers… It’s a call to step out of the church walls into the center of the community together and seek God and proclaim His name out in the open air for all the world to hear,” Miller wrote on Facebook.
The public is invited to register at www.OneBloodBR.com
“We’re looking for all churches to be a part of this,” O’Neal said. “It’s going to encompass every tribe, every nation, every domination under the banner of Jesus Christ for the healing of the city and our nation.”
