Some of the most prominent evangelical leaders will be praying for forgiveness, wisdom and provision for the U.S. on September 21 at Gateway Church in Southlake. 

Robert Morris, pastor of Gateway, says organizers are calling this solemn assembly, "The Gathering."

"We want to just take time," he says, "and call out to God and say, God, we can't change our nation but we know you can change people's hearts, and that's what we're asking you to do."

Some of the platform guests include:
•Dr. Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals;
•Kay Arthur, co-founder of Precept Ministries International;
•Jonathan Falwell, pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia;
•Bishop Harry Jackson, chairman of the High Impact Leadership Coalition;
•John Jenkins, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Glenarden, Maryland;
•Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary;
•Greg Laurie, evangelist and leader of the Harvest Crusades;
•Anne Graham Lotz, chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force;
•Max Lucado, acclaimed preacher and best-selling author;
•Robert Morris, senior pastor of Gateway Church;
•James Robison, founder of LIFE Outreach International;
•Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference
•Dr. Tony Evans, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas and president of The Urban Alternative. 
•Dr. Ronnie Floyd, president of the Southern Baptist Convention

Morris says each speaker will have approximately four minutes

"Some will motivate us so that we can pray," he says, "and others will simply walk to the microphone and pray and we want to come together and agree."

There will be an afternoon session for leaders beginning at noon. The national prayer event open to the public will begin at 7 p.m. Both events will be simulcast around the country.
