Thousands of Christians came to Washington, DC for an event called "The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance."
The Return was a solemn assembly based on 2 Chronicles 7:14 found in the Bible.
"If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14 ESV)
The Return is for all believers from all denominations and backgrounds.
"We've witnessed the darkest year. A year in which the world and specifically America has been shaken," Jonathan Cahn co-chair of the event said in his opening address. "This is not a rally, it's not a seminar, it's a sacred assembly. This is an appointed gathering at an appointed place at an appointed time."
Dozens of prominent Christian leaders and influencers spoke at the event, including Anne Graham Lotz who kicked things off Saturday morning by telling the crowd it's time for America to turn its eyes toward God. "I believe our nation is in crisis. Our nation is in a hard place and it's time to look up and see the Lord," Lotz said. "The world is being shaken for the purpose of getting us to look up."

"The Return" took place 40 days before the presidential election, and on the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower.
Surrounding "The Day of Return" at the Washington Mall were 10 days, known from ancient times as the Days of Awe, set as a special time of prayer and repentance from September 18-28.
"I believe this is the moment," Cahn said. "If we don't do this now, we may pass the point of no return."
The event kicked off Friday from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Eastern and resumed Saturday morning where it was also streamed LIVE until 9:00 pm Eastern.
