CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 24, 2020 — On Saturday, Sept. 26, Franklin Graham will lead thousands of people from across the United States in a prayer march on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Graham is urging Americans to come together to pray for our nation and our leaders—and to ask God to heal our land.

“America is in trouble and in distress but we have hope—our hope is in Almighty God. This is why we are asking men and women across this country to join together and do the most important thing we can do—pray in the name of Jesus Christ,” said Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse.

Prayer March 2020 will begin at 12 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26, at the Lincoln Memorial. It will end at the U.S. Capitol. Along the 2-hour, 1.8 mile route, the march will pause at key locations for focused prayers on crucial issues in our nation today.
