A group of African pastors and leaders recently gathered in Washington, D.C., to pray for revival for the church and for America.
Participants prayed and sang praises as they called out to God to forgive the nation’s sins and return our land to its biblical roots.
Ebele Okafor of Wailing Women Worldwide attended the rally.
“The only hope we have now is Jesus Christ,” she said.
The event, called “A Solemn Assembly,” was organized by the African Strategic Leadership Prayer Network (ASLPN), a team of African Christian leaders from around the world.
Dr. Michael Obi is the group’s national coordinator.
“We as African immigrants have always believed that the spiritual awakening in Africa was a result of the sacrifices of American missionaries or Western missionaries,” Obi told CBN News.
“And here in America we see the nation in a spiritual coma and because of that God opened our hearts and burdened our hearts,” he said, adding that the problem in America is not physical but spiritual.
Believers from across racial and denominational lines who attended the solemn assembly agreed these are critical days for America, and national repentance through prayer is the only hope.
“We have people from all over Africa, different parts of Africa combined with Native Americans, Caucasians, African-Americans and with one voice, with one heart we lifted up our voices unto God on behalf of the Church and on behalf of this nation,” ASLPN National Chairman Darlingtston Johnson said.
