small cloud ministries is the preaching, teaching, writing, and prayer ministry of Ed Kleiman. Ed works with local churches throughout the United States and in Eastern Europe teaching and preaching on the purposes, priority, and power of prayer; God's design for the family involving the role of men; discipleship; and the call for missions. He also makes available to people a great many very helpful resources, many by heroes of the faith who have gone before, free of charge.
We are committed to working towards the advancement of Christ's kingdom worldwide by His supernatural outpouring of the Holy Spirit in a genuine biblical and historical revival by seeing God's children humbly come together in earnest, believing prayer. At all times the emphasis is on doing God's work, God's way -- all to the glory of Christ alone. For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen. (Romans 11:36)
"You cannot revive something that has never
had life, so revival, by definition, is first of all an
enlivening and quickening and awakening of lethargic, sleeping
church members. Suddenly the power of the Spirit comes upon
them... they are humbled, they are convicted of sin... then as
a result of their quickening and enlivening, they begin to
"New power comes into the preaching of the
ministers, and the result of this is large numbers are
converted. So the two main characteristics of revival are,
first, this extraordinary enlivening of the members of the
church, and, second, the conversion of masses of people who
have been outside in indifference and in sin." (D. Martyn

"Flush with the wonder of God's awakening grace, in 1744 twelve pastors from the revived regions of central Scotland decided to coordinate all their efforts for the glory of God and the global advancement of Christ's kingdom. The Cambuslang revival caused many to consider global possibilities. Many of those who attested to the authenticity of the 1742 awakening called Cambuslang the "little cloud." What they had witnessed reminded them of the account in 1 Kings 18:44 when the prophet Elijah, fresh from vanquishing the prophets of Baal, pleaded with God to end his judgment against rebellious, drought-ridden Israel. After Elijah had prayed a seventh time, his servant looked and saw a little cloud. The cloud was the sign, said Elijah to his servant, that a mighty outpouring of God was imminent. The Scottish pastors believed such an outpouring was foretold for the latter days of the earth and across the face of the globe." (Dr. Robert Bakke's; "The Power of Extraordinary Prayer")
Today, as God's people once again unite in prayer for the glory of God and the advancement of Christ's kingdom, if you look carefully in places like South Korea, China, parts of Africa, and even in some pockets in the United States, and elsewhere, off in the distance a small cloud the size of a man's hand is rising again!
"If My people, who are called by My name, will
humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn
from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will
forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2
