Answering the call to prayer and ministry

In the early 1960s, Dick Eastman received a promise from God through a vision that would not only change his life but leave a mark on the world.  Seven years later struggling financially and still no prayer center, Eastman received another vision telling him to give up his position as pastor.  Stepping out in faith, Eastman, his wife and his family obeyed God’s voice and started a prayer ministry that sparked a movement.

Dick and Dee Eastman birthed a prayer movement with a radical approach.  Dick Eastman’s vision from God about a mobilization of radical young intercessors transformed the world and inspired global prayer movements still active today.  “The Purple Pig and other miracles” is the record of the Eastmans’ journey around the globe to encourage believers to pray in expectation of supernatural results.  The Eastmans are living examples of what happens when people pray and believe God.  Pushing doubters and disbelievers aside, they formed a group of intercessors around the world with 24/7 prayer centers.

Dr. Eastman currently serves as the international president of Every Home for Christ and president of America’s National Prayer Committee.  He also originated the Change the World School of Prayer, a seminar that has trained more than 2 million Christians in 120 nations on the power and intimacy of prayer.  He has authored numerous books on prayer and evangelism, including “The Hour That Changes the World.”
