Over a hundred men are seen lying face down inside a church and crying out to God. What’s happening here?
The extraordinary sight captured on video and posted on YouTube and Facebook caught the attention of more than 300,000 users with nearly 4,000 shares, with many expressing surprise and feeling inspired by it, CBN News reported.
One viewer, Alice Scruggs, wrote, “When have you ever seen so many men in church and experiencing true worship.”
“Yes Thank you for the Men of God!!! Whoa! Feeling the Glory! Hallelujah! Praise you God! We love you soooo,” wrote Cindy Bouford.
Billy Sims wrote, “To God be the Glory!”
Denzel D. Williams, the man who posted the viral video, said he was surprised by the public response. “I did not expect that,” he said. I did expect to get some views but this is totally, did not expect this to happen.”
Williams livestreamed the video on his Facebook page with the caption, “Bishop Glen Staples, Dr. Grainger Browning and the Men of the Temple of Praise & Ebenzer A.M.E. Church in Worship!!!”
He said he took the video during the “Game Changers Men’s Conference,” a prayer encounter held at Ebenzer A.M.E. Church in Fort Washington, Maryland. The event was sponsored by Bishop Glen Staples, Senior Pastor at The Temple of Praise in Washington, D.C., and Dr. Grainger Browning, Senior Pastor at Ebenzer A.M.E. Church in Fort Washington, Maryland.
Williams said about 200 to 300 men, “maybe a little bit more,” who took part in the event.
Williams also shared what prompted the men to lay prostrate at the altar. “Pastor Grainger Browning was the first one to lay prostrate in worship and then Bishop Staples followed suit as well. And the men were literally singing in worship for about 30 minutes or so,” he said.
