At 3:30 am this past Monday, Inauguration Day, I started meeting and gathering with hundreds of colleagues from across the country to pray for our nation and the inauguration specifically. I have three brief highlights I want to share.
1. Native Americans – In a humbling and profound act of repentance and forgiveness, the descendants of the tribes who owned and settled the land before it became Washington D.C., officially forgave our English ancestors for mistreating and displacing their forefathers and “welcomed” everyone else to their original native land.
2. The Voyage of the St. Louis – In 1939 the United States refused 900+ Jewish refugees from Europe who sailed on this ship seeking asylum in our country and were waiting just off the Florida coast. We publicly repented and asked forgiveness this week from our Jewish friends who were in attendance.
3.Keynote speaker was Jonathan Cahn, author of The Harbinger. He gave a clarion call and urgent message of repentance for the church and the nation in light of the cloud of judgment that has already started.
As always, thanks for your partnership in helping us mobilize our country to prayer and repentance. It is a privilege to be here in the nation’s capital.
