The Weekend of Worship that Filled the National Mall and Awakened the Dawn

Paul Strand : Oct 9, 2017  CBN News

"We're no longer going to get caught up in 'power to the people.' We're coming in power to Almighty God over the nation of America. Thank you, Lord. Use us to play our role and do our part for this Awakening and the healing that needs to take place here in this nation." -Mark Gonzales of the Hispanic Action Network

(Washington, DC)—[CBN News] The big swath of park land between Capitol Hill and the Lincoln Memorial known as the National Mall was filled with an unprecedented event this weekend: 24/7 worship meant to bless God and call His presence down on America. (Screengrab via CBN News)

"It's all about King Jesus," said Melody Frazier-Morris of Messiah Ministries International. "We're lifting His name up. It says 'if I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.' We want to see that Third Great Awakening."

Every state and region had a tent on the Mall for the event called "Awaken the Dawn," all of them offering praise and adoration around the clock all weekend long.

Matt Dentino of Outreach Ministries International is worshipping with Frazier Morris at the Tennessee tent.

All For The King Of Kings
"Just as you have congressmen and senators representing every state, every state in the union is represented here by Holy Ghost Christian people of all races and colors, here to worship the King of Kings 24-7," Dentino told CBN News. "It goes back to the Key of David. When King David was in Jerusalem, for 33 years, they had worship going."

Nothing like this endless stream of worship from Capitol Hill all the way down to the Washington Monument has ever happened before in the center of the nation's capital.

Kent Henry's been a worship leader and Christian recording artist since the 1970s. He expects this amount of praise and adoration for God will have an impact on the nation. (Screengrab via CBN News)

'Things Will Start Changing in America'
"Something's going to start breaking through," the California native said. "I hope a lot of churches catch a draft off of this, bro, because if everyday believers start praying 20 minutes a day including with some worship in it, things will start changing in America."

Dentino added, "It's coming back to the King of Kings, coming back to the God of America. Coming back to the Statue of Liberty, and it's not that thing in New York City. It's the cross. It's the cross that set us free. That's our Statue of Liberty."

'Get Happy About King Jesus'
"We need to get happy about King Jesus," Frazier-Morris stated. "I mean, He came and gave us, gave us salvation. "

"He washed us of all of our sin, took away our pain, took away our shame, gave us a whole new beginning. I mean, what else could you ask for?" she continued passionately.

Preaching and prayer also filled the air along with worship.

Iris Global's Heidi Baker came all the way from Mozambique, where she's helped establish thousands of churches. (Screengrab via CBN News)

In her message, Baker preached, "In order to carry compassion to a lost and dying world, we need to be filled with the passion of Christ. He needs to be living in us. Breathing in us. Moving in us—the passion of Christ."

By the end, she had an overflow crowd falling to their knees and crying out to God.

Power to God, Not 'Power to the People'
On the main stage in the middle of the Mall, Mark Gonzales of the Hispanic Action Network led prayer for all of God's people to come together to show a divided nation there's just one race in God's eyes—the human race.

"We're no longer going to get caught up in 'power to the people.' We're coming in power to Almighty God over the nation of America," Gonzales declared. "Thank you, Lord. Use us to play our role and do our part for this Awakening and the healing that needs to take place here in this nation." (Screengrab via CBN News)

Frazier-Morris said afterward, "I believe prayer changes history. And it's proven over and over. Wars were ended through prayer. Nations were founded. Israel was founded in 1948 through prayer: the people crying out for a land and they got a land, amen?"

'Prayer works. Prayer changes history.'
She concluded by saying Awaken the Dawn can change America, stating, "Prayer works. And it changes history. So, yes. I do believe this can change the atmosphere completely."

And Kent Henry added, "We're pretty far down the stream morality-wise and ethics-wise. But now we got a shot, especially with the change in the presidency, to do something great for Jesus. So, hungry people still get filled. We need to see the fire of the Lord come again." (Screengrab via CBN News)

The main purpose of Awaken the Dawn is just to love on the Lord and worship Him on the National Mall for a weekend.

But many of those who came think God's not going to let it end there; they believe He's going to show love to the nation that just showed it to Him.
