Evangelist Franklin Graham and prophetic writer Jonathan Cahn both say God led them separately to call for these huge assemblies on the National Mall September 26th.
Cahn doesn’t think it’s just a coincidence. He told CBN News, “God is converging everything. That’s how important this day is.”
In a promotional video for The Return, Cahn pointed out the significance of this time, saying, “This will take place not only 40 days before the presidential election but also on the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower, in the days of America’s founding and dedication to God.”
He insists the country has to get back to that dedication.
Is America Dividing and Disintegrating?
“I believe that America is heading to calamity if it continues on its course, and I believe we have the warning signs all around us,” Cahn argued. “We could have [a] total economic collapse. We’re already seeing the beginning of it. We could have the dividing of America, the breakdown, the disintegration of America.”
He added, “It would also mean persecution for the people of God. It could also mean the end of religious freedom.”
Meanwhile, Franklin Graham told CBN News, “We’re coming to pray. And I’m just asking people to join me.”
Franklin Graham says The Return and the noontime prayer march he’s leading the same day are a good start to get America out of trouble and back to God.
Filling the City with Prayer
Looking across the nation’s capital, he said, “Let’s fill this city with people who are willing to pray for this country, to pray for the president, to pray for all of our leaders, Democrat and Republican.”
The Return will run from 9 am to 9 pm a couple of blocks from the Washington Monument towards the Capitol building. Then over by the Lincoln Memorial, around noon the Washington Prayer March 2020 will begin, stopping for targeted, focused prayer at famous Washington sites on or near the National Mall.
In his promo for the prayer march, Graham said, “As I stand in this nation’s capital, this country is in trouble. The only hope for America is God.”
He continued, “Prayer is our most important weapon. It allows us to go directly to the King of Kings, directly to stand before the throne of grace and make our petitions known directly to God.”
The Return’ landed on the day called ‘Shuvah,’ Which Happens to Mean ‘The Return’
Cahn said of September 26th and the National Mall, “There is something that is very big and spiritual focused on that day and that place.”
In fact, though Cahn says God told him months ago to have this sacred assembly called The Return September 26th, Cahn just discovered that it’s the Sabbath day called “Shuvah” on the sacred Hebrew calendar.
“‘Shuvah’ in Hebrew means The Return,” Cahn said. “And it’s the day set in the Bible’s calendar for Return, and specifically for the Return of a nation, back to God for repentance.”
Cahn emphasized, “It can’t just be prayer. It’s got to be repentance.”
