How big will the tent be? I don't know. But beginning September 25 and continuing through the election on November 6, a tent will be erected on the Ellipse. The purpose is to offer 24/7 praise and worship to our God leading up to the election. Continuous prayer will be offered for our nation for over 40 days.
When the group sponsoring David's Tent sent in the application for a space to meet in DC, they expected to be placed at McPherson's Square, where the Occupy DC movement had been camped. Instead, they were offered the Ellipse. The Parks Department realized that something sacred was being done and placed them on the Ellipse. No one has been able to hold anything on the Ellipse since 9/11. So I think God is at work in getting this house of prayer right in the center of our national government.
If you live in the DC area or you are visiting our nation's capitol, I hope you will drop by the tent for a time of prayer. There will be music for worship during the day, but at 9:00 each evening, the music and amplification will stop. For further information check out:
Hope to see you there.
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
