Arlington, TX (PRWEB) February 17, 2016 -- Polls tell us that the state of America is not united. From political debates to the Supreme Court, from college campuses to the work place, people are facing division, frustration, and anger. The answers to these difficult issues are complex, but there is a group that is appealing to heaven for help and solutions. On April 9th 2016, United Cry DC16 is gathering pastors, Christian leaders, churches and believers from across the nation to pray for the healing and future of America at the Lincoln Memorial.
“America’s future is in danger. Research shows people are worried about the economy, jobs, families, terrorism, racial conflict and the attacks on biblical values,” states Lewis Hogan, Founder of United Cry DC16. “United Cry DC16 is calling pastors to pray together for our nation. We believe that pastors should be leaders in prayer, love and unity. Only a united church can help heal a divided America.”
United Cry DC16 is a national prayer event for pastors. Diverse leaders adding their support include Ronnie Floyd, Anne Graham Lotz, George Wood, Harry Jackson, Jim Garlow, Sammy Rodriguez, and Doug Stringer. The 7-hour prayer gathering will ask God for forgiveness, blessing and spiritual awakening for America, and declare the United States is “One Nation, Under God."
The assembly will reflect on the anniversary date of April 9, 1865, which marked the end of the Civil War. This gathering will take place on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Continuing the tradition of prayer set by President Abraham Lincoln and the healing he prescribed for a divided country, one focus of this national prayer event will be repentance for racial division. Invited guests include the daughter and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Drs. Bernice and Alveda King.
“There is hope for America and prayer can make a difference,” Hogan explains. “We are gathering, not to protest or complain about politics, but to honor our leaders and pastors by praying for them. We are coming with humble hearts and asking God to heal the spiritual condition of our nation.”
All Christian pastors, priests, leaders, and believers are invited to join national Christian leaders to lift a United Cry together at this historic, multi-ethnic, multi–generational, gathering on April 9th 2016, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
