Inscription:
JEREMIAH CALVIN LANPHIER / SEPT. 3, 1809 / DEC. 26, 1898 /
MISSIONARY OF THE REFORMED / DUTCH CHURCH IN NEW YORK CITY / AND FOUNDER OF THE FULTON ST. / NOON DAY PRAYER MEETING // JESUS ONLY // LANPHIER

Religious Leader. Founder of the Prayer Meeting Revival. He was a missionary of the Reformed Dutch Church in New York City located at Fulton and Williams streets in lower Manhattan. With church attendance declining, he engaged in door-to-door visitation. After three months with little results, he decided to hold a prayer meeting at the church at noon on September 23, 1857. By the end of the hour, six men had joined him in prayer for the church and the nation. Others came as additional prayer meetings were held at noon on the Wednesdays which followed. In October there was a financial panic with banks and factories being shut down. People soon began to flock to the prayer meetings. Within six months the attendance at the prayer meetings on Fulton Street and other locations in New York City had grown to an estimated 10,000 with similar meetings taking place in other communities across the U.S. Newspapers everywhere carried stories of what later became known as the Fulton Street Noon Day Prayer Meeting Revival. By 1859, it is estimated that there were up to one million or more converts in the U.S. with another million in Great Britain and Ireland. Historians often view this as the beginning of the Third Great Awakening.
