Thousands of folks in Washington DC have reportedly been saved this month during a three week ‘spiritual assault’ on the American capitol called- "Celebrate America." Here’s the story from CharismaMag.com:
"And we’ve seen over 23,000 people pray the prayer of salvation," Gonyon said of Celebrate America’s overall evangelism efforts.
But these three weeks of street evangelism and nightly meetings are just meant to be a spark. Gonyon emphasized that getting those hundreds of Christians out into the streets of D.C. to witness has been the most crucial part.
"Once somebody wins souls—because most don’t—their heart is broken for the lost," Gonyon explained. "So when Celebrate America is over, this isn’t about, ‘Oh, that crusade is over.’ They’ll continue to win souls in their sphere of influence."
The organizers of "Celebrate America" hope that steam rolls into a move of God nationwide.
"We’re believing God for another great spiritual awakening in America," Gonyon stated. "We’re believing that the church will wake up and fulfill the Great Commission."
Response: Hopefully that spark will lead to a raging fire all across America. So many disappointing policies and decisions have come out of Washington lately that it is great to see something edifying and down right encouraging coming out of there instead. Praise God! *Top
