Martinez, California (EastBayDaily) — The leadership of "555 Days of Prayer to Save America" are encouraged to report, here, that there has been a great deal of encouragement and new participation by church prayer teams and congregations around the United States of America; and, they hope, around the world. And as the 555-day-long prayer initiative begins the second week of a hundred-day prayer of intercession, asking for mercy and forgiveness for the sins and shortcomings of The Church, prayer warriors everywhere are being called to add their prayers to the extended prayer initiative.
"Isaiah 56:7 says, 'Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.' As prayer leaders, we wish to build this five-hundred and fifty-five day long monumental mountain of prayers to our Heavenly Father. We are greatly encouraged by the increased participation, and we will continue to reach out to our fellow Christians and Messianic Jews for their support and fellowship in prayer," said Robert Berry, "Save America Gathering" CEO and Servant Leader.
Amongst the new partners in prayer are prayer teams at Harvest Christian Fellowship [Pastor Greg Laurie] of Riverside, CA (http://www.harvest org/church/home.html) and Saddleback Valley Community Church, of Lake Forest, CA. [Pastor Rick Warren] (http://www.saddleback.com).
