BREAKING NEWS: The National Day of Prayer observance on May 1 will be the beginning of this year’s efforts to engage, encourage, and equip millions in prayer! Starting in September 2014, the Pray for America Rally Tour II will launch on the east coast and make its way to the finish line in Hollywood, California for The Summons: Hollywood, October 1-5, 2014. So, look for more details soon.
The Pray for America Rally Tour, commissioned by the National Day of Prayer Task Force, began a 13,000 mile, 400-community, 100-day, 33-state tour on May 27, 2013 in Pittsburgh, PA (concluding in Atlanta, GA, on September 11). Aboard a specially decorated tour bus, our team (featuring a group of authors and speakers, such as John Bornschein, Dion Elmore, Kathy Branzell, Lisa Crump, Ryan Dobson and others) carried the message (to engage, encourage and equip in prayer) from community to community, from state to state, and from coast to coast. At each stop, they set-up tents and tables, passed out helpful resources and engaged people in prayer. In addition, they met with governors, mayors, pastors, and churches – praying for them and promoting the need for fervent prayer in their communities.
