NEW YORK — Influential evangelical leaders throughout the U.S. will fly to Washington, D.C. this weekend to join a crowd of as many as 1 million Christians to pray and worship together for the nation.
Inspired by Nick Hall, founder of PULSE, "Together 2016" is a prayer and evangelism movement to empower the church and awaken the culture to Jesus. Americans are being urged to unite on the National Mall, July 16, to offer prayer that God will change the hearts of individuals and thus change the nation.
"It's a gathering for all people to come together under the banner of Jesus. The only agenda is Jesus," Hall told The Christian Post. "It's the church from all backgrounds — Lutherans, Catholics, Pentecostals. It's going to be worship, it's going to be prayer, and it's going to be lifting up Jesus and praying that He changes our hearts individually. We're talking about a reset in our lives and ultimately a reset in this generation. We really believe that there's a heart issue and that God wants our heart." more >>

"They're demons on assignment to stop our progress. Yes there is injustice but what we're really fighting against is a stronghold, not people," Campbell wrote on Instagram. "Satan wants the world destroyed! If WE the body of Christ, The Whole Body all over the world unite we win!" more >>

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is now in stable condition after he collapsed on Sunday while performing in Coney Island's Ford Amphitheater with actor Johnny Depp and singer Alice Cooper in his side band, the Hollywood Vampires.
According to wcvb.com, the guitarist was seen struggling as he played David Bowie's "Rebel, Rebel." Perry slowly walked out of the stage in the middle of the song.

This caused worry to the fans as they brought their concern through social media. more >>
When it comes to the topic of race relations, outspoken Christian rapper Lecrae is striking a note that resonates with some of his fans but might leave others covering their ears.
In an op-ed published by Billboard on Friday, the Grammy award-winning artist once again spoke out against racism, insisting that harmony and understanding require humility following the police shooting deaths of Louisiana resident Alton Sterling and Philando Castile of Minnesota, and the subsequent killing of five Dallas police officers — Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Lorne Ahrens and Michael Smith — at the hand of a black sniper who said he was targeting white officers.
The music producer referred to an excerpt from a TEDx Talk in which he explained that everyone has a story and a crucial step toward trying to relate to one another is understanding those stories. Doing so, however, takes some humility. more >>
