HISTORY OF THE KOREAN PRAYER MOVEMENT
In 1907, The Korean Peninsula experienced a powerful move of the Holy Spirit leading to a nationwide revival better known as the Pyongyang Revival. As the fire of revival continued to spread and grow, one of the major hallmarks of Korean Christianity has been dynamic and unceasing prayer. Korean churches have gathered to pray in the early dawn, all night prayer vigils, as well as dedicated spaces on top of mountains and gardens. This fire for continuous prayer is what has birthed what we know today as the prayer garden movement of Korea.
DANIEL PRAYER GARDEN est. 1992
In the spring of 1992, Elder Hoki and his wife Kilsoon received a calling from the Lord to build a dedicated space of prayer for the body of Christ in metro Atlanta. After serving the Korean local church faithfully as an elder for 20 years, they both felt that God was now calling them to serve Him by building a prayer garden that would be open 24 hours a day 7 days a week for God's people to come and seek the Lord. Since the beginning, DPG has been a consecrated place of encountering God in the place of prayer, healing and restoration for the broken soul, and a place to be refreshed in God's presence. Together they faithfully and lovingly served the body of Christ for 26 years until their retirement in the fall of 2018.
In 2018 Elder Hoki's grandson, Pastor Andrew Eun, officially became the Director of DPG. In many ways this story was all written from the beginning. After spending 12 years working with both the Prayer and Missions movements, as well as ministering in the local church, Andrew and Una and their two boys moved back to Atlanta to carry the stewardship of what their grandparents had begun. Together, the Lord has confirmed to both generations what His desire is for DPG and how they are to uniquely serve the body in this season.
