LIncoln Fox's bronze bench entitled, "Invitation to Prayer."Jeremiah Lanphier invites you to sit down on Broadway.

Outside the entrance to the American Bible Society on Broadway is a curious bench with a bronze figure at one end. Invitation to Prayer, by sculptor Lincoln Fox was dedicated 150 years to the day that Jeremiah Lanphier held a prayer meeting in New York. Sparsely attended, the meeting picked up momentum worldwide and became known as the Fulton Street Revival.
