"Standing Together as One . . . Under the Cross of Christ"

"God reigns over the nations, God sits on His holy throne." (Psalm 47:8)

Special Prayer Request for David's Tent

Special Prayer Request for David's Tent

"Now we need you . . ."
A message from Rev. Pierre Bynum: Family Research Council
Dear Prayer Leader friends,

I don't need to tell you how important the work of Jason Hershey and David's Tent is. His team of 40+ volunteers and guests from across the country day and night - 24/7 for the past 16 months or so, have kept the window of heaven open here in Washington, DC. I have been working in the prayer arena for many decades here and I can assure you that there has been a difference - a big difference - which I believe can be attributed to David's Tent.

But there have been many adversaries. Now, the work could be displaced permanently. I'm not asking for money, simply asking you to motivate your network of prayer warriors to stand together with Jason to see God bring an absolutely miraculous provision - a location to permanently pitch David's Tent in a prominent location on or in the immediate vicinity of the National Mall - somewhere between the Capitol, the Washington Monument and the White House. Jason explains in his letter below precisely what is needed. As of this moment there is no natural solution, but we know that our God can open a door that no man can shut (Rev 3:8). There is much more to say. Please take time to read Jason's letter below!

Rev. Pierre Bynum
Chaplain & National Prayer Director
