The video above was taken by Kristen Carr, an Auburn student and journalist. “Never in my life,” Carr told WSFA. “I was even talking to adults who were there that were a part of it, and they said that they had never witnessed anything like that. “Everyone was so just excited and joyful.” While the event was undoubtedly beautiful and moving, what is even more powerful is that the entire movement started with prayers from just five earnest young women who met together in the arena each week to pray, Tonya Prewett, organizer of the event, told WSFA. [firefly_poll] The prayer meeting of five turned into a meeting of 200, and then local ministries decided to “get behind it to turn it into something much bigger,” Prewett said. “We see God moving in our local churches, and so last night was just a ripple effect of what is already going on,” Prewett said. The station’s report is below: Our news is filled with so much filth every day, especially when it comes to young people and their choices. To see a group of young people choose to wade into a lake in the middle of the night to make a statement for Jesus is like a cup of cool water in the desert. It gives you the strength to keep on the journey.
A revival is happening tonight in Auburn. People are getting baptized at Red Barn with hundreds of people cheering them on. The baptisms started following an event at Neville arena tonight called Unite. @TheAUPlainsman @AUFAMILY pic.twitter.com/PzEza1UWKz— Kristen Carr (@kristencarrau) September 13, 2023
It also proves that those prayers on the field or at the flagpole are more than just symbolic. They have the power to bring down the power of God and transform lives.
