History of 24/7 Prayer Part 2. Part 1 is here
The tabernacle was replaced by a temple, the Davidic order of worship was embraced and reinstituted by seven subsequent leaders in the history of Israel and Judah. Each time this order of worship was reintroduced, spiritual breakthrough, deliverance and military victory followed.
King Solomon instructed that worship in the temple should be in accordance with the Davidic order (2 Chronicles 8:14–15). Jehoshaphat defeated Moab and Ammon by setting up singers in accordance with the Davidic order: singers worshiped at the front of the army singing the Great Hallel. Jehoshaphat reinstituted Davidic worship in the temple (2 Chronicles 20:20–22, 28). Joash (2 Chronicles 23:1–24:27). Hezekiah cleansed and re-consecrated the temple, and reinstituted the Davidic order of worship (2 Chronicles 29:1–36, 30:21). Josiah reinstituted Davidic worship (2 Chronicles 35:1–27). Ezra and Nehemiah, returning from Babylon, reinstituted Davidic worship (Ezra 3:10, Nehemiah 12:28–47).
Historians have also speculated that around the time of Jesus, in their search to find communion with God, the Essenes of the Judean wilderness reinstituted Davidic worship as part of their life of prayer and fasting.
