Does LP Field Have A Message For Nashville? Perhaps.

Besides Tennessee Titans’ NFL games, does LP Field have a message for Nashville?  Perhaps.

The big letters, LP, on the Titans‘ stadium remind me of the words Let’s Pray.  Nashville has a history of prayer.  During Nashville’s early days thousands of broken human beings, who were being unjustly held in forced hard labor and life long bondage, continually cried out to the God of the Bible for strength and freedom.

During the great destruction in the war that set them free, both blacks and whites prayed desperately out of great need for God’s help.  After that, during the injustice of harsh racism under Jim Crow laws, the persecuted cried out to God for deliverance.

In the 1890s and early 1900s, Nashville’s Union Gospel Tabernacle (now the Ryman Auditorium) became a place of prayer for revival in Nashville drawing thousands.

Untold numbers of prayer meetings have been held in Nashville asking God to bring spiritual awakening to our city.  More individuals have prayed and/or fasted for revival in Nashville than can be counted.

On July 7, 2007 (07/07/07) more than 70,000 people from around America (and the world) gathered at LP (Let’s Pray) Field (for a 12 hour meeting known as The Call Nashville) to pray and fast for spiritual awakening in America.

I believe that God is going to answer the heart-cry of the tens of thousands of people in Nashville who have sought Him for revival in our city.  A mighty move of God will come to Nashville.

But we must not give up on God.  We need to join our prayers with the prayers of the multitudes of genuine God seekers who have prayed since the founding of our city.  LP — Let’s pray!  “Pray without ceasing.”

There is a lot that God wants to do.  Don’t settle for nice, entertaining church meetings, when God wants to shake our foundations, bring us to repentance, set multitudes free, and pour out His glory among us.

Let’s pray!  Get together with others and intercede for our city and our nation.  Are you looking for others with a heart to see God move mightily in Nashville?  Pray with us at The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., Nashville, 37207 on Sundays @ 10:45 am and Tuesdays @ 6:00 pm.
