This week I’ll be traveling to Washington, D.C. to participate in what I’m confident will be a historic event in America. I seek your prayers for what will be taking place.
The event is called “Together 2016” and their goal is to gather 1 million people together to cry out to God for revival and awakening in our nation. It’s been five years in the planning. Here is some description about what it is from the organizers website, https://reset2016.com/
“We believe there’s power in coming together. Jesus promised whenever two or more come together in His name, He is present. It’s emboldening to join with others, to know we’re not alone, to realize we can do more together than apart.
July 16, 2016 is the day when this generation lays down what divides us and lifts up Jesus who unites us. On a day of unified prayer, worship, and a call for catalytic change, we will meet on the National Mall to declare that Jesus changes everything.”
Though much of the target is towards teens and 20 somethings, anyone and everyone is urged to attend.
As the vision for this has been cast across the country many have bought in. Hundreds of local churches, entire denominations (like the Assemblies of God and Southern Baptist Convention), Christian ministries (like Campus Crusade, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and YWAM) and well-known Christian leaders have all laid their own agenda aside to be part of what God is clearly bringing together.
On Thursday and Friday I’ll be part of separate conference with the Luis Palau Association, then the main event is Saturday on the National Mall. It will be from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Ravi Zacharias, Josh McDowell and Dr. Tony Evans will be among the speakers. Michael W. Smith, Lecrae, and Hillsong United will be among the 30+ platform guests.
There will also be many other events taking place throughout this week, including a massive volunteer service movement, helping with needs all over the greater Washington, D.C region.

Such a time as this! There has been much turmoil in our nation in the last week. What a perfect time for this event. What way to respond to a nation crisis then for fellow believers to come together and seek the face of God!
