praying togetherA statewide prayer gathering is planned for tomorrow in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The event seeks to unite believers in a call for justice, mercy, and humility. It follows the standards set in Micah 6:8:

"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

"If you look around, our world is hurting," says Kurt Weaver, director of the Church Ambassador Network, one of the organizers of the prayer gathering. "It's hurting from injustice, unrest, violence, and certainly from a health and economic crisis. So we really believe that more than ever the Church needs to gather corporately and go to God and ask him to heal our land."

The prayer gathering is scheduled to begin at 11:00 am local time on the capitol steps in Harrisburg.

"This event is not going to be a protest; it's not going to be a rally," Weaver continues. "It really is going to be a prayer gathering where people are just calling upon God to do a powerful work in our world and in our hearts."

Some people, even Christians, think prayer does not matter. Weaver begs to differ.

"If you go to scripture, we can see time and time again God calls his people to come to him and make our requests known to him," says Weaver. "God is the God who hears, and God is the God who is full of mercy and justice and grace and love. He is the only one who can truly heal our land, and he is the only one who can truly make a difference in this world as he utilizes his people."

Open to churches and believers across the state, the prayer gathering will feature worship by Pastor Ricardo White of Life Center in Harrisburg, as well as prayers from Pastors Duane Coleman of Agape International Family Worship Center, Dr. Joseph Green, Mike Leonzo, and others. 

A live stream will be available for those who are not able to make it to Harrisburg.

The Church Ambassador Network is an initiative of the Pennsylvania Family Institute
