Liberty University strategies to send out virtually 2,200 pupils to Washington, D.C., on Saturday to consider part in a prayer march structured by Franklin Graham, an evangelical chief with near ties to the conservative spiritual institution.

Acting Liberty President Jerry Prevo claimed the learners will be part of about 50,000 marchers who will travel alongside the National Shopping mall from the Lincoln Memorial to the U.S. Capitol setting up, occasionally pausing at particular person memorials to pray.

“It’s strictly a prayer march. It’s not a protest. It is not a demonstration,” Prevo, who sits on the board of Samaritan’s Purse, a charity led by Graham, stated. “We’re just generally praying for our nation, praying for our persons and praying for this COVID point to get about with.”

Graham, the son of famed Baptist preacher Billy Graham, has pitched the march as an possibility to remind politicians about the importance of God in American everyday living.

At convocation very last 7 days, the religious chief invited Liberty learners to take part in the occasion and to display politicians that “young men and women nowadays are keen to take a stand for Jesus Christ.”

“We’re not likely to yell and scream and chant,” he stated. “We’re heading to quietly go from just one finish of that Shopping mall to the other and we’re heading to pray, asking God to recover our country, to mend the coronary heart of our politicians.”
