Franklin Graham Prayer March 2020Marchers will be praying – not protesting – in Washington, DC, on Saturday during an event organized by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

The PrayerMarch2020.com website says the gathering will be "a dedicated prayer march, not a protest, and not a rally supporting any candidate or political party." BGEA president and CEO Franklin Graham was on the "Washington Watch with Tony Perkins" radio program last week to discuss the upcoming march.

"The only hope for this country is God. It's not a political party, it's not our system – it's God," Graham stated. "… We need to call on God, and we need as a nation to confess our sins and to repent, and we need to put our faith and trust in God's Son, Jesus Christ."

The prayer march will begin around noon at the Lincoln Memorial and end at the U.S. Capitol. The prayer focus will change at various locales along the march route.

Graham expects it to last about two hours, although he says people can travel at their own speed.

"You can stay for the whole day, but it's a chance to fill Washington with men and women who are calling on the name of God," he emphasized.

Participants are expected to follow applicable health and safety protocols, including the use of social distancing and a face mask while in public, and to monitor government orders that may impact travel. Anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should refrain from participating in person.

Meanwhile, a livestream will be available for people who cannot attend.

"I would encourage people also in their own community, if they can't come, to organize a prayer march in their state or town," said Graham. "It's not the importance of where we do this, it's just that we stop and pray."
