Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz drew close to 500,000 people at a prayer event in India earlier this month. And at a separate gathering of 10,000, almost “every hand” went up when people were asked if they want to receive Jesus Christ as Savior, her ministry reported.
According to Vicki Bentley , a member of AnGeL Ministries Board who traveled with Lotz to India, there were advertisements all over the city of Hyderabad for the second annual “National Day of Prayer,” which Lotz was a speaker at.
Local organizers helped put together the large gathering, with thousands of people arriving on trains, buses, and other forms of transportation from the countryside as well.
AnGeL Ministries noted that according to police estimates, as many as 500,000 people in total attended the prayer call.
“Anne preached on Daniel the prophet. She explained from Daniel 9 that ‘one man, who knew God and prayed, moved heaven and changed a nation.’ Then she challenged those present to pray as Daniel did,” Bentley recounted.
“As far as the eye could see and beyond, people cried out to heaven, agreeing together as Anne led in prayer for personal and national revival.”
The Hindu website also reported that “five lakh believers,” which is equal to 500,000 people, were expected to attend the State and National prayer meeting on January
