Recording opens with Dell announcing that the recording is portion of the 22nd prayer revival at the garden of prayer on the night Tuesday September 22nd, and how many people have had their prayers answered by attending. A man then introduces the family member prayer band which plays and the audience sings. He then introduces the president of the band Lucy Buttons. She thanks all who have participated in the Saturday night worship sessions and shows appreciation to Bishop and Mother Dell. She then talks about the revival and its history of how it began, and how prayer works for people to rise up from their troubles. This followed by a song. Woman testifies and talks about Jeremiah and his battle, followed by singing. Another woman asks for contribution to the church, and conducts a prayer and song for the church leaders. Dell then leads a prayer and reads Psalm 119: 18 and part of Genesis 22:10. He talks about Abraham and God’s promise of a son and how he was willing to sacrifice his son Isaac, and explains to the congregation that sometimes you have to go to extreme sacrifice to get with God. He then leads a call and response prayer telling the story of David and Goliath.
