Over 50,000 people covered the Washington Mall.
Across America, people of all ages and races joined together in prayer.
They joined together in a prayer of repentance.
They joined together in prayer for revival across America.
Shelly and I had the opportunity to attend both the Franklin Graham march and on the same day, The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance.
Here are 7 things you should know:
1. Christians came from all over the United States. Different ages. Different races. Different genders.
It was a powerful event.
Christians came united for the purpose of prayer. To pray for revival. To pray for repentance.
2. Spontaneously, people throughout the 50,000 broke out into smaller groups of 5, 10 or 15 people to pray for our leaders in Washington, D.C.
3. Protesters from Black Lives Matter were there shouting obscenities … and holding obscene signs.
A pastor and several local church leaders created a platform on the grass with a speaker and started preaching hatred and disunity from the pulpit … turning everything into an anti-Trump and anti-America rally.
Christians gathered around praying for them.
4. The peace on the mall was amazing. The violence that was expected was not there.
In fact, in front of the Supreme Court, on the day Amy Coney Barrett was announced as the next Supreme Court justice, instead of the common agitators, anarchists and protesters, it was Christians praying on the steps of the Supreme Court. A peace that was calm and quiet dominated the entire area.
5. Pastors, church leaders, Christian authors and speakers from throughout the United States prayed in unity over city, state and national issues. For the police and military. For the courts. For the election.
It was a powerful assembly of prayer and worship.
6. Franklin Graham led a walk from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument. In this walk, Vice-President Mike Pence began the event.
You should see his video below.
7. The bottom line is that Shelly and I saw hope for America.
Shelly and I saw people with one heart and in unity crying out to God for repentance.
Crying out to God for revival.
Crying out to God that the only hope was – God.
