“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sins and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

With the heart of this verse, around 4,000 people of various ethnic groups and generations gathered together at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA on Tuesday to pray for the nation.

A Line in the Sand Prayer Movement, which lasted from 1 PM to 9 PM, consisted of worship and prayer led by leaders from Caucasian, African American, Latin American, Israeli, and Korean American churches. The Korean American church in particular led prayer at the very end of the day, and prayed for the repentance of personal sins and the sins of the nation; restoration of godly families and churches; restoration within schools and culture; wisdom and guidance for, and raising up of, governmental leaders on the local, state, and federal level; and a spiritual awakening and revival within the nation. There was also a time in which those with physical afflictions were prayed for, that they would be healed.
