On September 11, 2021, prayer leaders and intercessors from around the world gathered virtually and in Los Angeles at the site of the Azusa Street revival for the “Redigging the Wells of Revival” global prayer event. Hosted by The Potter’s Ministries and with a special invitation to believers worldwide from Lou Engle, co-founder of TheCall and Lou Engle Ministries, the event mobilized Christians to pray for global revival. Prayers during the event were specifically directed towards the seven recognized “mountains of prayer” including Family, Religion, Government, Business, Education, Arts and Entertainment, and Media.
Kathleen Cooke, founder of The Influence Lab and Cooke Media Group, was invited to represent “Arts and Entertainment” as one of seven prayer leaders chosen to “take the mountain” of their area of expertise. The prayers for each mountain were based on Joshua 14:12 where Caleb requested of Joshua to “give me this mountain” which had been promised him.
Kathleen opened her prayer by acknowledging God as the source of all creativity. “We are nothing and cannot attempt to create anything without You,” she declared. “In You we move, and breathe, and have our being.”

She also prayed for the global entertainment and arts community to see and hear God, and to take action towards a single purpose, “that we might produce, direct, write, sing, paint, and create all manner of art and media and entertainment so that others might know with clarity and without a doubt, who you are.”
The event included live Zoom prayers from nations around the world, with Guatemala, Germany, the UK, Africa and Jerusalem among those represented. Other prayer leaders taking the stage in the 5-hour prayer event included Stephen Strang, Charisma Magazine; Matthew and Amy Stoehr, The River Family Church: conference hosts Cyril and Jemima Rayan, The Potters Ministries; and Sam Brownback, U.S. Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom.
