One Voice Student Missions desires to live out the Great Commandment (Matt 22:37-38) and fulfill the Great Commission (Matt 28:16-20) in the high schools of America. We want to save the lost and revive the saved. We desire for every student to be:
These were the words prayed by Evan Roberts at the start of what would later become known as the Welsh Revival of 1904-1905. He was a young man at the time, just 26 years of age, yet because he humbled himself God moved through him. He was given a vision of 100,000 Welsh coming to the Lord. The results of the two year revival were such that crowd control became a necessity at church, services lasted until early morning, bars closed down as drunkards came to Jesus, people repaid debts, judges were handed white gloves which symbolized no cases to arbitrate, public sports teams gave up the game for prayer. The word “bend” means to turn or incline in a particular direction, such as when a road turns toward a certain way. It is a yielding or submitting toward a certain direction. The word originates from Old English bendan, to bind, or bend, as in a bow, to confine with a string.
Evan preached a simple message. He said, “You must ask the Spirit to bend you afresh.”
On April 1, 2013 I stepped into a 40 day Fasting and Praying meeting taking place at Mott Auditorium, Led by Lou Engle. As I was there Lou called me up and the team began to pray for me and prophesy. As I felt the Lord fill that place we began to cry out to the Lord “God give us the high schools of America ” This prophesy came forward: “God will give you 100,000 high school students saved in the L.A.U.S.D. through your life, and this Revival.”
These words wrecked me for the next days I pondered: how God? – when God? I feel we are now stepping into the platform of Peter on the day of Pentecost. Fueled by prayer and encounters and visitations with Christ, his bold witness lead thousands to Jesus.
We must dare to believe that God has ordained us for such a time as this, and a generation of High School missionaries are being raised up.
” As I was sitting in a prayer meeting this man began to speak on the statistics of our American Campuses He spoke on how so little was being done. My heart was gripped as he shared Psalms 110:3 a verse I had so many of times read over. I feel this is the season the Lord has us in. Our first years of One Voice we focused on rebuilding the altars of prayer again like Elijah in our public schools, but now there must be a call to students to truly volunteer to truly lay down their lives for there campus to realize that this is the day of the Lord. There is yet another wave and move of God like we once seen and we must take this window God is giving us.”
School Prayer has a history First Amendment revision.
School Prayer was removed from the U.S. public education system by slowly changing the meaning of the First Amendment through a number of court cases over several decades. At O.V.S.M. we desire that the love and power of Jesus Christ be displayed in the public schools of America through his people living in power.
