"Get ready to change America forever."

That is what thousands of Christians said this weekend as they prepared for a national day of prayer and repentance.

The event, called ReignDown USA, kicked off April 26 in Washington, D.C. and broadcasted live on God TV.

"There is enough power in the Church today to change the destinies of our nations, and so we encourage viewers across the world to tune in to ReignDown USA as we humble ourselves and pray together corporately," said GOD TV co-founder, Wendy Alec. "As we come into agreement, we will see breakthrough in the great nation of America."

Prayers during the four-hour rally included intercession for the President and future presidents, and prayers for lawmakers, state officials, teachers, pastors and numerous others.

Michael W. Smith lead worship at the event, along with a number of Christian leaders.

ReignDown USA followed last week's pope visit and came before next week's National Day of Prayer, as part of what some are calling a "spring time of prayer in the nation's capital."

Popular ministries including Prayer Watch International, the Presidential Prayer Team, Congressional Prayer Caucus and the Awakening America Alliance all participated in the call to prayer.

Veteran Lutheran minister Walt Kallestad and his daughter Shawn-Marie Cole are the leaders of ReignDown USA.

They say they personally received a vision from the Lord of Christians rallying together to cry out for God's mercy upon America.

"The USA is entering a time of desperation for our Lord Jesus Christ," said Walt Kallestad "We've witnessed firsthand the threat of terrorism, natural disaster, broken marriages, moral depletion, denominational division and denying Christ as the center of everything we do. The time has come to repent and put God back in the center of our lives, our relationships and our nation.
