A coalition of influential evangelical, charismatic, and Pentecostal leaders met in December 2015 in Colorado Springs, CO, to discuss a comprehensive, national prayer strategy leading up to the elections in November 2016.
The coalition—including Paul Cedar (Mission America), John Bornschein (National Day of Prayer Task Force), Ed Silvoso (Harvest Evangelism), Dutch Sheets, Lou Engle, David Butts (America’s National Prayer Committee), Mike and Cindy Jacobs (Generals of Intercession), and David Kubal (Intercessors for America)— came to a consensus that God is leading them to unite and issue a national call for multiple days of fasting and prayerwalking.
Out of this has emerged a coalition of ministries called As One. The strategy revolves around two 40-day periods of prayerwalking, fasting, and corporate prayer events. The first will start on Easter Sunday, March 27, and run through the National Day of Prayer on May 5. The second begins on September 30 and ends on Election Day. There will also be collaboration with other major national prayer events happening throughout the year.
The plan is to prayerwalk every street and zip code. A new website, prayasone.org, has devotions, information, and many resources to equip this prayer effort.
