WASHINGTON, March 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- On "May Day," Saturday, May 1st, Christians from around the nation will gather beginning at sunrise (6:10 a.m.) at the Lincoln Memorial with Christian and Jewish leaders who wholeheartedly love God for the sole purpose of repenting and remembering the God of our fathers.
Pro-family leaders across denominational boundaries have joined together for this effort including: Dr. James Dobson, American Family Association President, Tim Wildmon, Concerned Women for America President, Wendy Wright, Liberty Counsel Chairman, Mat Staver, NRB President, Dr. Frank Wright, Three Star General Jerry Boykin, Dutch Sheets, David Barton, and many members of Congress who are willing to stand in the gap for our nation.
"God didn't call us to gather together to hear political speeches," said Pastor Paul Blair, Pastor Coordinator for May Day, "he called us to humble ourselves and gather together to pray." He added, "May Day is 'Pray Day.'"
"This event is not to impress the media or the Washington 'elite.' May Day is focused on God--to cry out and repent of our nation's sins that have brought us to this point of distress," said Janet Porter, Faith2Action President and May Day Coordinator. "I believe the national repentance at May Day is essential to break the curses on our nation brought about by our choices of disobedience and death. The good news is repentance breaks a curse and a remnant can save a nation," she added.
