For 18 hours, Friday, Oct. 22, America for Jesus will fill the Washington Mall with the faces, prayers, songs from around the world as tens of thousands gather to pray for America.
ÂIt is not a political rally; itÂs a prayer and fasting rally,Â explains organizer Bishop John Gimenez, ÂWe are not lifting our fists in protest but joining hands to pray that God would heal our land.Â Bishop Gimenez has united millions in similar Washington events in 1980, 1988, and 1996.
Our nation is in critical need for prayer. This conviction has joined leaders, entertainers, pastors, youth and people from across denominational, racial, and political backgrounds to pray, sing and worship. Leaders include National Association of Evangelicals President Ted Haggard, prominent Washington Pastor Harry Jackson, CBN founder Pat Robertson, televangelist Rod Parsley and entertainer Pat Boone.
In the after math of 9-11 we saw millions of Americans praying for our nation, America for Jesus is a call to pray in for the protection of our nation and a returning to the beliefs that once made us great,Â remarks National Director, Rev. Anna Gimenez.
The event on Friday October 22nd will begin at 6:00 a.m. and the evening worship concert will conclude at midnight.
