George Whitefield Preached to 80,000

This Day in History:  June 1st, 1739 George Whitefield wrote, “Preached in the evening, at a place called Mayfair, near Hyde Park Corner. The congregation, I believe, consisted of near eighty thousand people. It was by far, the largest I ever preached to yet. In the time of my prayer, there was little noise; but they kept a deep silence during my whole discourse. A high and very commodious scaffold was erected for me to stand upon; and though I was weak in myself, yet God strengthened me to speak so loud, that most could near, and so powerfully, that most I believe, could feel. All love, all glory be to God through Christ!”
