It's a unique prayer meeting—and it's one day only in October—next week. The goal? To beg God for forgiveness for what we've done in America. For how we've treated others. For the ways in which our nation has squandered the untold blessings that God bestowed on us since our earliest days.
There is no fee to take part. No sign-up is needed, and there are no strings attached. Everyone is welcome at this powerful, passionate and prayerful plea to God for His mercy on our nation—before it's too late.
Pastor Carter Conlon, general overseer of Times Square Church, is heading to Plymouth, Massachusetts, to lead the prayer for God's mercy on Oct. 6, 2020. The location is significant and historic. This year marks the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first Pilgrims on our soil, a place where they sought to worship God freely and without fear of persecution. Pastor Conlon is asking everyone who believes in God, no matter where they are, to join him online as the Times Square Church Worldwide Prayer Meeting is livestreamed from Plymouth on Tuesday, Oct. 6, from 7-9 p.m. Eastern.
"God called this prayer meeting, and the future of America depends on our prayers," says Pastor Conlon.
"This is a do-or-die moment for America," he adds urgently. "This is it. We either have a spiritual awakening, or we plunge into darkness. Without God's intervention of mercy, this nation is finished. May God help us. May God have mercy."
This is a divine calling in a significant place. Pastor Conlon met the family who owns the home that is believed to be the site of the first house built in Plymouth Colony—and where the 51 pilgrims who survived the first winter prayed and cried out to God. Of this critical location, Pastor Conlon reveals, "God said to me, 'I want you to come back to this very spot where the nation began. And I want you to ask for forgiveness for what you did with the freedom that I gave you 400 years ago.'"
He adds, "The key is coming on that very spot of ground and saying, 'God, forgive us for what we have done. And we're asking You not in our strength, but in our weakness for one more moment of mercy for this nation.'"
Pastor Conlon also says, "We're going to God, to the place where the nation began, spiritually speaking, and we're going to pray and say, 'Lord, forgive us.' He told me to open by listing the sins of America, starting with slavery, and go right on through to the sins of today, including abortion."
The Worldwide Prayer Meeting, which occurs weekly, draws prayer requests from thousands of people in over 200 self-reported countries and dependencies throughout the world. It does so via website submission form and text message.
