The year 2016 is a mega "Bible Jubilee" year. The increasing number of prayer rallies, meetings and conference phone calls crying out to God in repentance and seeking revival, reconciliation and renewal are impacting every aspect of our lives. 

The prayer segment for racial reconciliation led by The Reconciled Church in Washington, D.C., on April 9, 2016 was very impactful.

The two powerful April 9, 2016, rallies raised the bar for the cultural transformation needed to bring about more waves of evangelism which will surely impact the battle for the culture of abundant life. 

Neither rain, snow, sleet, wind nor sun could keep them from praying for America. The unusual spring weather was freezing, but the prayer was passionate and the emotion genuine at United Cry DC16. April 9 marked a historic day as pastors, Christian leaders, churches and believers prayed for the sins of the nation and healing from pride, racial division, abortion and denominational differences. For almost eight hours, thousands gathered at the base of the Lincoln Memorial, braving strong gusting winds and well-below freezing chill factors to participate in this landmark Solemn Assembly. United Cry DC16 was a day of tearing down the walls of division, embracing brotherhood and building bridges that transcend rivers of prejudice and extend the kingdom of God into communities.

"We believe that God has a dream for America that we are not living," states Lewis Hogan, co-founder of United Cry. "America is in crisis, and God is the answer. There is hope for America, and we are contending for it."

When asked, "What Next?" Lewis Hogan says, "We have only just begun! United Cry will continue on assembling 30,000 pastors and Christian leaders, a Gideon's army. We left Washington, D.C., on Saturday with this charge to the pastors: Like Nehemiah, go from the place of repentance and prayer and get busy, rebuild the walls around our cities and communities of righteousness and our godly Judeo-Christian roots as a nation. It is time to get to work."
