Someone once said, “You should only pray for the impossible.” For if we can somehow swing things in our own efforts, we really don’t need the power of God. A group put what they thought was an impossible prayer before God, and God delivered “beyond what they could ask for or imagine.” Last year, a group of worshipers had a vision to converge in Washington, D.C. and just praise and glorify God continuously for 40 days and nights. They wanted to do this within sight of the White House, and someone half-jokingly suggested the White House Ellipse – which is pretty much the president’s back yard. All the hot property around D.C. was taken, and often one needs a year’s notice to reserve public areas. But after submitting an application to Parks and Recreation, this group – called David’s Tent – discovered that they were assigned. . . the White House Ellipse.
I was at David’s Tent in D.C. last year during this 40-day nonstop praise and worship celebration, and it was incredible to join in with heaven and earth and the international church family. Worship bands from all over the fifty states led in two-hour increments. Communion was administered in one part of the event. Remembering the vision our forefathers cast for this nation, it was glorious to be in the capital, worshiping and thanking God for all that He’s done for us and through us.
The exciting news is that David’s Tent is continuing the praise and worship this fall. For more information on being a part of this, go to davidstentdc.org And check out the thrilling documentary of how God was honored through David’s Tent.
