Church of God General Overseer Tim Hill will take part in a special called prayer meeting at the original Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts, location coordinated by Pastor Carter Conlon of the Times Square Church.
The Tuesday, October 6 gathering is being billed as a, “Powerful Plea for Mercy for Our Hurting Nation—One Day Only, No Strings Attached.”
“It’s a unique prayer meeting—and it’s one day only,” stated a release from Conlon. “The goal is to beg God for forgiveness for what we’ve done in America. For how we’ve treated others. For the ways in which our nation has squandered the untold blessings that God bestowed on us since our earliest days.”
This year marks the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first Pilgrims on American soil, a place where they sought to worship God freely and without fear of persecution. Conlon is inviting everyone who believes in God to join him online as the Times Square Church Worldwide Prayer Meeting is livestreamed from Plymouth on October 6, from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. EST. The site for the livestream is located at tsc.nyc/webcasts/tuesday-7pm and on the Times Square Church Facebook page and YouTube channel.
“God called this prayer meeting, and the future of America depends on our prayers,” says Pastor Conlon. “This is a do-or-die moment for America. We either have a spiritual awakening, or we plunge into darkness without God’s intervention of mercy.”
Conlon met the family who owns the home that is believed to be the site of the first house built in Plymouth colony—and where the 51 pilgrims who survived the first winter prayed and cried out to God.
“God said to me,” Conlon continued, “’I want you to come back to this very spot where the nation began. And I want you to ask for forgiveness for what you did with the freedom that I gave you 400 years ago. We’re going to the place where the nation began, spiritually speaking, and we’re going to pray and say, ‘Lord, forgive us.’
The Worldwide Prayer Meeting, which occurs weekly, draws prayer requests from thousands of people in over 200 countries around the world via website submission form and text message. The weekly live prayer meeting is livestreamed every Tuesday at 7 p.m. EST. Times Square Church is an inter-denominational, multinational congregation founded by Rev. David Wilkerson. Over 10,000 people, representing more than 100 different nationalities, gather to pray together each week, finding true unity through Jesus Christ.
The Plymouth Rock event is Hill’s second nationwide prayer event in which he will have participated, following on the heels of the national call to prayer sponsored by Rev. Franklin Graham in Washington D.C. The events come as the nation heads into the final month before the presidential election.
