Christians from all 50 states gathered to pray over the weekend in Washington, D.C. for May Day 2010. The focus of the event was repentance.
They met at the Lincoln Memorial under a warm spring sun, calling on God to forgive the people and heal the land.
"Lord, we don't point at the world," Sharon Ngai from Los Angeles prayed. "Lord we point our finger back at ourselves as Christians for what we have done, for what we have allowed ourselves to see."
Janet Porter, the coordinator of May Day 2010, said the nation is under a curse, for among other things shedding innocent blood and beginning to turn our backs on Israel.
"And the good news is as we remember our covenant with God we're going to repent for the sins that have taken us away from God and we're going to renew that covenant with God," Porter said. "We are one nation under God, not one nation under Allah."
During the gathering, prayer was offered for every state in the union.
Ngai was burdened over human trafficking and the pornography industry.
"We knew that without a doubt that is is an issue that is so heavy on God's heart, and we're here to repent on behalf of the adult entertainment industry that has pretty much polluted and defiled the nations of the earth," Ngai said.
There were prayers for the different generations, including the young.
"Just that God would come through, I see it in my school and I see it in the nation just how it's disintegrating and how important it is that we come back to Jesus," said Kelsey Stolarsky, an Ohio high school student.
