Rees Howells and the Welsh Revival
Samuel Rees Howells: A Life of Intercession
The Legacy of Prayer and Spiritual Warfare of an Intercessor
The Welsh revival swept throughout Wales, transforming communities as thousands were swept into the body of Christ. The powers of darkness were forced back as the Kingdom of God advanced forcefully. Evan Roberts, was used mighty to see the rivers of revival flow.
Rees Howells, a young convert, later to be used in revival, was overwhelmed by the power of the revival. But he realised there was a great need to be able to intercede for the new converts to be true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Rees Howells had fully surrendered to the Holy Spirit in the early 1900s. He was led into a path of deep intercession for various individuals and situations and later on would see revival in Southern Africa. During World War II, he would lead the Bible College of Wales in intercession to see freedom in Europe from the Nazi system.
In 1950, Rees Howells was glorified and he handed the work of the Bible College of Wales to his son, Samuel Rees Howells. He continued in a deep life of intercession and faith for six decades and God answered his believing prayers. World events were still being transformed by the intercessors that Rees Howells had taught and one of Samuel’s concerns was to pray for revival all over the world.
