An Estimated 50-100,000 Christians Flood National Mall in D.C. for “The Return” Day of Prayer and Repentance!


Since the MSM will almost certainly not tell you about this, I will.

So important.  

“The Return” was held today at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Created as a National Day of Prayer and Repentance (so important to see Repentance added, that is almost never included!), even President Trump issued a National Proclamation to support and endorse it.

Take a look:

From the Office of the President,

On this inaugural National Day of Prayer and Return, the First Lady and I join millions of Christians here in the United States and around the world in prayer, as we turn our hearts to our Lord and Savior.

Our great Nation was founded by men and women of deep and abiding faith—a faith that has stood the test of time.  Four hundred years ago, early American settlers trusted their lives to His providence and braved a voyage to a New World.  From the pilgrims who sought His protection aboard the Mayflower to the countless believers who today bow their heads to ask for His guidance during these unprecedented times, our country continues to turn to the Lord.  Following in our ancestors’ footsteps we continue the “firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence” that provides us enduring strength and reassurance in our times of need.

The trials and tribulations the American people have faced over the past several months have been great.  Yet, as we have seen time and again, the resolve of our citizenry—fortified by our faith in God—has guided us through these hardships and helped to unite us as one Nation under God.  As we continue to combat the challenges ahead of us, we must remember the sage words of President George Washington during his first Presidential Address: “propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained.”  As a country and a people, let us renew our commitment to these abiding and timeless principles.

Today, I am pleased to join my voice to yours in thanking God for blessing this nation with great power and responsibility.  With reverence, humility, and thanksgiving, we beg for His continued guidance and protection.

The crowds were HUGE!

Look at some of these pictures:

From NBC10:

The National Prayer March led by Evangelical Rev. Franklin Graham drew crowds to downtown Washington, D.C. on Saturday estimated to be thousands large.

The prayer event was focused on healing the country amid a pandemic, civil strife and division, not to support any specific party or political issue, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which put together the march, said.

However, politics were a prominent feature.

“Father, our country is in trouble. We need your help,” Graham said. “We pray today specifically for the President Donald J. Trump.”

Vice President Mike Pence was among multiple speakers on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial who discussed the presidency and Supreme Court.

Pence urged the crowd to pray for the armed forces, the executive branch, Congress and "the remarkable woman that the president will nominate to fill the seat on the Supreme Court today."

"Today, at this Washington prayer march, you continue a great tradition," Pence said. "Since the founding of our nation, the American people and our leaders have gone to prayer in challenging times."

After the rally, demonstrators walked to eight sites around the National Mall. At each, they were asked to pray on a specific focus, including police officers, government leaders, ending abortion and more.

“These people have come from all over America at their own expense. They’re coming to pray for the country,” former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said while hosting the event livestream. “They’re here to solve the trouble our land is in.”

Organizers say up to 50,000 people attended, making it one of the largest gatherings D.C. has seen since the coronavirus pandemic shut down normal activities in March.

Fox News has more details:

Evangelist Franklin Graham is leading a prayer march Saturday in Washington, D.C. that will seek God's healing for a nation in crisis.

"I think our country is in trouble, and Democrats will tell you that, Republicans will tell you that. ... We're coming today to call upon the name of God, because I believe only God can fix the problems that we face in this nation today," Graham said on "Fox & Friends Weekend" ahead of the march.

Graham, president of Samaritan's Purse and the son of the late Billy Graham, organized the 1.8-mile Washington Prayer March 2020, which starts at the Lincoln Memorial at noon and ends at the steps of the Capitol.

"My prayer is for healing -- that Jesus Christ, God's son, as a nation we would turn our eyes back to him. You know, 150 years ago, your pastors, the churches, were the political leaders in every community," Graham told co-host Pete Hegseth.

Recalling nationwide protests during the Vietnam War, Graham believes the nation is even more divided today.

"We need a spiritual healing in this country and only God can do that," the evangelical leader said.

Graham laments that the church and its leaders have been marginalized today.

"I believe the socialists in this country would like to shut the churches, but I'm going to just pray that we will turn our eyes to God ...," he said.

"We're coming today, from all states ... to pray, to humble ourselves, to confess the sins of our nation to God, to ask for his forgiveness, and to call on him, to help our nation, and we're going to pray for our representatives. Republican, Democrat, we're going to pray for all of them."
