August 27: Answered prayers from the Fulton Street Prayer Meeting

The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

Psalm 34:22

Daniel W. Whittle

Daniel Whittle records many answers to prayer from the Fulton Street Prayer Meeting Revival. In 1857, following Jeremiah Lanphier’s invitation to pray, thousands packed the churches of New York City and many cities across the nation for noon-time prayer meetings. Here’s what person wrote:

“Some three weeks ago, I wrote you, stating that my business had been a failure, and asked your prayers that God, in His mercy, would point out a way for me to provide for my family. The clouds grew thicker and blacker, but the more earnest were my prayers. Last Saturday the Lord came to my rescue, and provided me with the necessities of life, and to-day I wish you to join with me in thanksgiving to Almighty God for these favors;–‘For He is good; His mercy endureth forever.’”
