From the Upper Room of Pentecost to Azusa Street in Los Angeles, God has used prayer movements throughout history to change the world. Over fifteen years ago, a group of students gathered for a prayer vigil in Chichester, England--and the prayers they started haven't stopped. Out of that first meeting came 24-7 Prayer: an international movement of prayer, mission, and justice that has reached Chinese underground churches, Indian slums, Papua New Guinea jungles, ancient English cathedrals, and even a brewery in Missouri. "Red Moon Rising" is the story of how that movement continues today--and how each of us can be a part of the miracles God is doing through a new generation.
The title comes from a verse in Joel from the Holy Bible: "The sun will be turned to darkenss and the moon to blood before the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
