Thousands of pastors are expected to gather at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. on April 9 as part of UnitedCry DC16, a massive prayer rally.
Charisma News reports that the leaders of the event hope it will draw 30,000 pastors from all across the country to join in prayer.
"From a place of unity, pastors and Christian leaders join together in prayers of repentance, revival and responsibility for our nation," Lewis Hogan of UnitedCry says, describing the event.
"Out of this place of a unified cry, we are believing for a mobilized prayer movement of pastors and their congregations to shape our nation at the local, state and federal level,” he continued.
UnitedCry DC16 will coincide with Lou Engle’s TheCall Azusa in Los Angeles where thousands more believers will gather.
The event especially emphasizes pastors, but Hogan says all believers can join in through live streaming.
"We are in a Joel 2 moment in the history of our nation. When a nation is in crisis, Scripture is clear about the solution,” said Hogan. “Joel 2 states, 'Call a sacred assembly, gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders.' It is in that place of gathering that the cry arises for mercy. Our cry is for God to show His mercy on this land and send great revival and awakening."
