In Wilmore, Kentucky a seven day, 24-hour a day prayer revival has been ongoing since February 8 inside a chapel in the small Christian college of Asbury University, and thousands have started traveling to Wilmore to join in as viral videos of the worship session were posted on TikTok.

According to NBC News, university President Dr. Kevin Brown said, "The first day we had a very ordinary service, I would call it unremarkable," but afterwards some students remained in the sanctuary and eventually more and more people began to join in. The scenes of worshipers singing and praising God have traveled across social media.

On February 12, a user on TikTok posted, "Chapel ended 80+ hours ago. Revival hasn't. Lord Jesus, Speak Like Fire."

"GOD IS NOT DEAD! At Asbury University in Wilmore KY, a prayer meeting has been going on nonstop since Wednesday, 24hrs a day. A revival is coming. God has not left us," Graham Allen posted on Twitter.

On February 13, one TikTok user posted video of the revival and wrote, "Worship hasn't ended for 100 hours. Holy Spirit, move in us!"

Asbury University’s vice president of communications, Mark Whitworth, said, "It has absolutely been social media that is the mechanism that people found out about this."

The hashtag #asburyrevival has garnered millions of views across social media with over 24.4 million views on TikTok.

The event itself is ongoing and is simply defined by a continual invitation to prayers and on Tuesday night over 3,000 were inside the chapel with at least two-thirds being travelers to the location.

NBC reports, "The phrase 'spiritual revival' can carry different meanings; in Christianity, they generally refer to a resurgence in interest in the church from believers and nonbelievers."

President Brown said, "The university made an intentional decision not to publicize this because we wanted to place an abundance of respect towards the experience of our students."

Leah Payne pointed out on Twitter that Asbury had a similar revival in 1970.

"This is acoustic guitars, pianos and very noncharismatic speakers. This is as un-sensationalized as it could be, attendee Nick Hall said.

"Jesus is alive and at work. 101 hours and counting of revival at Asbury University. Praise the lord. #asburyrevival202," posted another attendee on Twitter.

On Thursday, another TikTok user posted, "Drove 3 hours to see what God is doing at Asbury… THIS IS WHAT REVIVAL LOOKS LIKE"

Similar revivals have started in schools as NBC reports, "students at Lee University in Tennessee started a nonstop prayer vigil Monday morning that is still ongoing, said Brian Conn, director of communications at Lee University. Other schools with similar reports include Anderson University in Indiana, Ohio Christian University near Columbus, and a handful of others."
