Thousands of Christians Flood the U.S. Capital to Pray for Our Nation

In the sweltering summer heat, thousands of Christians gathered near the Washington Monument on Saturday to pray for a “broken” America.

Nick Hall, a young evangelical Christian and leader of the Pulse ministry, organized the event to encourage young Christians to unite in prayer for the problems in the world and then take action . . . .

“We believe #JesusChangesEverything,” the organizers said. The hashtag became a trending topic on Twitter during the event. “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.”
