D.C. Media Twist Prayer Event into Liberal Agenda

Thousands of praying Christians from hundreds of Bible-believing churches near Washington D.C., and from across the nation, gathered on Columbus Day at the Lincoln Memorial to pray to God for revival and to heal our land from its wayward path (2 Chron. 7:14), but the mainstream media reported that it was a gathering to promote an anything-but-biblical, liberal utopian worldview.

Lon Solomon, senior pastor of the McLean Bible Church, declared near the start of the Washington Prayer Gathering its plan and goal.

"We are here today to confess our sins and the sins of our churches and the sins of our city to the Lord Jesus Christ," the mega-church pastor said, "and then to pray that in response, the way He promised, that He will fall on our city."

Pastor Symonette summed up, "If we can accomplish something great here by bringing churches together here in the nation's capital, were hoping it'll overflow into the rest of the country."
