Washington Prayer March 2020


“Thus the Lord was moved by prayer for the land.”

— 2 Samuel 24:25, NASB​

About The Prayer March

Thousands of people are expected to attend the Washington Prayer March (*) on Sat, Sep 26, in Washington, DC, organized by Franklin Graham and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The event is described as "a dedicated prayer march that is focused solely on asking God to heal our land." The prayer march along the National Mall will begin at the Lincoln Memorial and end at the Capitol. Along the way, participants will pray silently for the designated focus at each location.

Our Participation

The Houston's First family is invited to pray in unison with the participants in Washington by gathering online or at The Loop, Downtown, or Sienna Campus during the same time as the prayer march on Sat, Sep 26. While we will not be in front of famous national landmarks, church staff members will lead us along the same journey followed by those at the National Mall and we will pray for the same topics, as well.

At each campus and online, you can choose from one of two time slots — both featuring the same seven stops and prayer focuses listed below. You're welcome to attend one or both!

  • 11-11:45a
  • 12-12:45p

Additional information:

  • Registration is not required, and childcare is not available at any campus.
  • Social distancing measures will be in place on The Loop, Downtown, and Sienna Campuses.
  • You are asked to wear a mask while on campus until you find your seat in the Worship Center.
