Pray for America’s Healing! United Cry DC16 Invites Pastors to Gather April 9th in Washington, D.C.
Arlington, TX, February 9, 2016. For Immediate Release
Can prayer help heal a nation? Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln believed in national prayer. Following this presidential practice, United Cry DC16 is inviting pastors, Christian leaders, churches and believers from across the nation to gather and pray at the Lincoln Memorial on April 9th, 2016.
“America’s future is in danger. The polls show, 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. “We are asking pastors to join in prayer. Only a united church can help heal a divided America.”
Diverse leaders adding their support include George Wood, Ronnie Floyd, Anne Graham Lotz, Harry Jackson, Jim Garlow, Sammy Rodriguez, and Doug Stringer. The 7-hour prayer gathering will ask God for forgiveness, blessing and spiritual awakening in 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 United Cry DC16 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.
