youth worshipThe leader of an evangelism movement among the younger generation says today's National Day of Prayer is a crucial opportunity for America to mend divisions.

Nick Hall is founder of Pulse, which for the last eight years has held a National Day of Prayer gathering in Minnesota's Twin Cities, led by Millennials. Pointing out that this year's theme is "Unity," Hall says people from diverse backgrounds will all come together for prayer.

"This is going to be black, white, Asian, Hispanic; it's going to be guys and girls; it's going to be young and old; it's going to be a bunch of teenagers and college kids alongside their senior pastors and even the spiritual mothers and fathers of the Twin Cities," he describes.

Hall tells OneNewsNow that as a Millennial himself and one who works with young people, there's a temptation to feel excluded from the National Day of Prayer – but this day, he contends, is for everyone.

"We are the Church – we need each other, we need to come together," Hall emphasizes. "This is an urgent hour to pray and we believe that God hears our prayers.

"... I think the National Day of Prayer is awesome, I think it's a gift from God," he concludes. "I thank God that we live in a nation that recognizes the importance of prayer, and I just think it's a massive miss to not make the most of it."

He adds that the National Day of Prayer is an opportunity to pray as one for God to heal the nation.
