Worshipful Praise

Yes, the hour has come . . .
            The search is on . . .
                        The father is seaking true worshipers
                                    trained by the Holy Spirit to
                                                worship in spirit and in truth.

We release our praises . We aim it in God's direction and when the arrow of praise strikes the heart of God the richness of God's grace is poured out upon our nation.

Lift Up Your Hands!
      "We lift up our hands and bless the Lord" (Ps. 134:1-2)

"Clap your hands O ye People"
      We respond by clapping our hands.

It's a privilege and responsibility to pray everywhere and at all times
      "lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting" (1 Tim 2:8)

The desire of God is praise. We respond for God asks His people to give Him that which excites Him for God rejoyces over that which is expressed out of a pure heart. It is a sweet smell in His nostrils.

Praising the LORD Praising the LORD Praising the LORD

Objects of Worship

The ministry of banner and flag bearing before the Lord.

We lift objects of worship, praise and bible truths, by faith, into the heavenlies. The way is prepared and open for the King of Glory to come in and the Lord occupies. Our Lord inhabits the praises of His people and causes the enemy to flee. Thus the strong presence of the Lord is established in our land.

Effectual Fervernt Prayers

Declaring faith in the power of prayer.

We bring together a multi-national, multi-denimination, cross-generation of believers to pray. We use the freedom to publically gather at the highest seat of government. We honor the only corporate prayer day sactioned by congress. Manifesting the power of prayer corporateness supercedes denominations, culture and political agendas.

United as One

God's focus for our nation is the advancement of His kingdom. Therefore, we respond to Him by coming together to repent, worship, seek His face and to proclaim His word. As believers, moved by His Spirit, hungering for Him, we become repairers of the breach. Since 1985, God has responded to us with His presence at the Capital Region National Day of Prayer.
