The Asbury Revival 2023: A Time of Unplanned and Non-Stop Worship, Prayer, Testimony, and Confession in Wilmore, Kentucky

In February of 2023, something amazing happened in Wilmore, Kentucky. The Asbury Revival took place, and it was unlike anything anyone had ever seen before. For two weeks, the campus of Asbury Theological Seminary was filled with worship, prayer, testimony, and confession.

The revival began February 8, when a group of students gathered in a chapel on the seminary's campus. They had no plans, no agenda, and no idea what was going to happen. They simply wanted to worship God together. As they began to sing, something started to happen. The presence of God became tangible, and the students began to weep and pray.

The worship service continued late into the night, with students coming and going as they pleased. By the next morning, word had spread, and more students and civilians began to gather. The worship continued, and soon people were confessing sins, sharing testimonies, and praying for one another.

As the days passed, the revival grew in intensity. It was not organized or orchestrated by any one person or group. It was simply a movement of the Holy Spirit that swept through the campus. The seminary canceled all classes and activities for the two weeks of the revival and was transformed into a 24-hour worship and prayer center.

The impact of the Asbury Revival was felt far beyond the seminary's campus. People came from all over the world to witness what was happening in Wilmore. News outlets covered the story, and social media was filled with reports of the revival.

The Asbury Revival was a reminder that God is still at work in our world. It was a call to worship, prayer, and confession. It was a challenge to put aside our agendas and let the Holy Spirit lead us. And it was a testimony to the power of God to transform lives and communities.

As we look back on the Asbury Revival of 2023, we are reminded that God can do great things when we simply open ourselves up to His presence. May we all be inspired to seek Him more fully, worship Him more deeply, and follow Him more faithfully.
