Day 14: Making Jesus Known

John 17:26 “And I have declared to them Your name, and will 
declare it…”

   Charles Graddison Finney was gloriously converted to Christ
October 10, 1821. Following his conversion, Finney was used by
God to fan the flames of revival throughout the first half of the
1800s during the Second Great Awakening. Finney first began
preaching in western New York and ultimately had great success
preaching in large urban areas such as New York, Philadelphia
and Boston. His most noted revival meeting was held in 1830–31
in Rochester, New York. Riding upon the wave of the Second
Great Awakening, the campaign lasted six months with one
tenth of the city’s population being converted.
   Charles Finney was faithful to make Jesus known to as many
people as possible. His methodologies and commitment to
prayer have had a lasting influence upon the church. In John
17:26, Jesus prays toward making the Father known. He, too, was
always about that task. Are we about the task of making Jesus
known to the nations?

Prayer Points
   • Ask the Father to give you a greater desire and burden to see
people saved
   • Pray for the Lord to send witnesses into His harvest fields in
