At D.C. Worship Event, Feucht and Trump Request Prayers for America

During a “Day of Prayer for America” event Sunday, September 12, at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., worship leader Sean Feucht said that despite a “leadership crisis,” the United States is experiencing revival and “a moment of divine destiny from heaven.”

Feucht, who’s been leading public “Let Us Worship” events throughout the pandemic, also addressed pushback he has received, saying the “resistance” proves he is pursuing God’s kingdom and heart.

Timing of Event Was a ‘Total God Setup’

Before Sunday’s event, which thousands of people attended, Feucht and his worship team led prayer at other D.C. sites, including the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, and the U.S. Supreme Court building. Originally, the worship leader had hoped to schedule the D.C. event in October. But when the National Park Service said the only available weekend was September 11 and 12, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Feucht “knew in that moment this was a total God setup.”

His prayer event in the nation’s capital kicked off 21 days of prayer for America. Feucht invited four former U.S. presidents to participate, but only Trump spoke to the crowd (via video). During an eight-minute presentation, the 45th president praised the heroism of 9/11 first responders and military personnel in Afghanistan. He also urged Americans “to pray for our beloved nation and to pray for one another.”

About Trump’s participation, Feucht tells CBN, “I think having the former president give an address where he calls America to pray, honor the fallen, honor the military, which I don’t feel like has been done in a great way from this current administration. We need somebody of that caliber, of that level, to call America to pray, but also to give us some reassurance that we’re not in this thing alone.” Without mentioning President Biden by name, Feucht adds, “I just feel like we’re in the middle of a leadership crisis in America. I think everyone would understand that.”

Speakers Point to OT Accounts for Encouragement

At Sunday’s event, Georgia Pastor Jentezen Franklin compared the current condition of the Christian church in America to the valley of dead, dry bones in Ezekiel. “We’re divided, we’re dry, and we’re dead,” said Franklin, an unofficial former adviser to Trump. “We need a wind from elsewhere…that restores the years that the locust and the cankerworm have taken away.”
