Pastor David Bradshaw wants to ‘Awaken the Dawn’ to radically transform America for Christ

Lake Mary, FL—The Awaken the Dawn movement took the nation by storm in 2017 where nearly four million participated around the world through live streaming and almost 50,000 gathered in person at the National Mall to pray and worship together. David Bradshaw, the founder of this exceptional movement, has taken the movement to the next level by writing a book by the same name, Awaken The Dawn: An Adventure In Hosting Jesus’ Presence And Discovering Your Part In The Story (Charisma House, ISBN-13: 978-1-63641-006-7), to give insight on the founding of the movement, the wisdom he has gained from it, and to encourage others to go deeper in their relationship with Christ.

“Jesus’ way of changing the world is surprising and exhilarating and certainly the opposite of the systems of the world,” Bradshaw writes. “…Jesus is still writing the story of how He brought awakening and transformation in the earth. And I pray that as you read what God has done so far, you will be inspired to discover the part you were made to play.”

Bradshaw’s book acts as a way to inspire all generations to pray, not just as part of a checklist of chores, but for the great love of the God we are praying to. “Prayer is not about prayer,” Bradshaw writes. “We pray because we believe in the One we are speaking to and that He loves to answer us. We believe He moves at the sound of our voice. As soon as prayer becomes about prayer and we forget that we are talking to an actual person—the One with eyes like blazing fire—we’ve lost the plot.”

Awaken the Dawn chronicles more than the outward movement of people congregating together—it champions the inward work that Christ wants to do in the heart of every single person, and how He alone is worthy to be praised and given the glory. Revival is coming to America, and David Bradshaw’s new book is set to become a part of that revival.Awaken the Dawn is released by Charisma House, which publishes books that challenge, encourage, teach, and equip Christians.
