Texas megachurch Pastor Jack Graham and the website Pray.com will host an online-only National Day of Prayer event Thursday night featuring U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, members of Congress and prominent pastors.
Known as the “Providing Hope through a Live Prayer Event,” the event will be streamed on social media at 6 p.m. Central time.
Notable speakers for the event include Pompeo, the Rev. Franklin Graham of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Tim Tebow, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference President Samuel Rodriguez and Georgia Pastor Jentezen Franklin.
Other participants include South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, evangelical author and disability advocate Joni Eareckson Tada as well as pastors Paula White-Cain, Greg Laurie, David Jeremiah, Tony Evans, Robert Morris of Gateway Church in Texas and Jack Graham of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Texas.
Rodriguez stressed in a statement emailed to The Christian Post that even in a time of national uncertainty, “prayer changes everything.”
“In the midst of this pandemic, our nation prays [to remind] ourselves that while we are grateful for Uncle Sam, there is nothing like our Heavenly Father. Prayer is the bridge between Heaven and Earth,” Rodriguez, the pastor of New Season Church in Sacramento, California, stated.
In addition to the prominent speakers, the online event will also feature music from notable contemporary Christian musicians Matthew West, Stephen Curtis Chapman and Michael Neale.
