Thousands of Christians from across the D.C. area gathered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial Monday to pray for the District.
The service drew church-goers of multiple denominations from Washington, Virginia and Maryland. It focused on issues facing the city including homelessness and problems facing underserved communities such as the elderly and disabled.
“We believe the Bible calls us, as Christians in this city, to pray for our city,” McLean Bible Church Pastor Lon Solomon said. “We’re not here to pass judgement on our city. We’re here to beg the mercy of God on our city, which is what the Bible tells us to do.”
