As many of you know, the weekend of August 28th Glenn Beck will hold his Restoring Honor event on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. He is also holding an event on Friday entitled Divine Destiny at the JFK Performing Arts Center. The Divine Destiny event is a spiritual revival and celebration of the Christian heritage of our nations founding. As admittance to this event will be next to impossible we wanted to do something to coincide with with, and to allow for an expanded celebration of Gods glory and the Divine Providence that lead our founders to create our now threatened Republic.
To that end, we will be joining with other concerned Christians from around the country in a prayer vigil at the JFK Center at 7:30pm August 27th. We will lift Glenn and all those in attendance at the Divine Destiny event up in prayer and ask for the Lords blessing upon them. We will ask that the hearts of those spiritual leaders inside will be opened and their souls transformed. Now more than ever we need for the body of Christ to be awakened and our spiritual leaders empowered to shepherd their flocks in biblical truth. We will pray for all those in attendance at the events in DC that weekend, and for all those who are with us in spirit that the Lord will cover them, bless them, and multiply them.
If you are planning on being in DC this weekend please join us for an uplifting time of prayer and celebration. Do not bring any signs or banners as we are not there to protest or promote anything other than bringing glory to God and to humble ourselves to him, our sovereign Lord, and ask for his continued blessing. Please bring a candle and an open heart. This is not a sanctioned event of any one group but simply a gathering of concerned citizens who are In Christ and are exercising their constitutional freedoms of peaceful assembly and the free exercise of our religious beliefs.
If you are unable to join us in DC you can still participate in this effort by joining with friends and family where ever you are and spending some time in repentant prayer and asking for the Lords blessing on those in DC. As in Matthew 18:20, the Lord tells us that "For where two or more are gathered in my name, I am with them".
