Fifty years ago Dick Eastman – perhaps the world’s foremost prayer leader – became an ordained Assemblies of God minister.
In 1971, he prayed that that year would be the start of winning 100 million people for Christ.
Today, Mr Eastman serves as international president of Every Home for Christ (EHC), an interdenominational ministry with 189 offices around the world.
A decade ago, EHC surpassed 100 million respondents who had made decisions to follow Christ since the organisation’s inception.
Mr Eastman has told AG News, prayer is dramatically impacting this harvest of souls.
EHC has its own 24-hour prayer centre, 8,000 supported staff, and more than a million annual volunteers.
All work to share the Gospel in residences and villages through literature and church plants.
EHC reaches more than 100 million homes annually with the Gospel.
Mr Eastman has written several books, including the prayer classic “The Hour that Changes the World”.
