One Church // One Voice," and its subsidiary Christian non-profit, "Save America Gathering," are continuing their message of prayerful redemption for the United States of America, as the 555-day-long prayer initiative, "555 Days of Prayer to Save America," reaches its 395th day, today. The prayer event has completed a number of important segments, and is now closing in on the final 100-day-prayer, a prayer for the healing and restoration of the United States of America; it, itself, now being only 60 days ahead.
"555 Days of Prayer to Save America" began on March 5, 2013. Participants, who number over 100,000, globally, have now, as was previously stated, completed a number of prayer segments. These include a 5-day outcry, asking God, Almighty, to hear our prayers; a 50-day prayer thanking God for His mercy, forgiveness, and salvation; a 100-day prayer of confession, asking for mercy and forgiveness for Christians' personal sins and shortcomings;
At present, the message of "555 Days of Prayer to Save America" has reached China, United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia, Japan, India, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Romania, Ireland, Poland, Argentina, Ethiopia, Italy, Portugal, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Malaysia, and France. Australia, Portugal, and India have been consistent, with larger numbers of followers participating. A consistent following is building in Romania. International participants have been encouraged to pray, not only for America, but to also pray for and rededicate their own nations to God.
"555 Days of Prayer to Save America" will end on September 11, 2014, with "The Great Wave Offering." "The Great Wave Offering" will consist of sunrise, noon, and sunset rededications of the U.S.A. to God's purposes and principles. There will be wave offerings, shofar calls, and biblical readings at dawn and sunset, while the noon worship will also include a feast of dishes composed from each of the 7 blessed fruits of the earth, as seen in Deuteronomy 8:8:
"a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey."
A recipe contest has been underway, for the past week, for recipes featuring the 7 blessed fruits. For fruits of the vine, "One Church // One Voice" and "Save America Gathering" are excluding wine from the recipes, so they won't be promoting alchohol use, in any manner, but they are including grape juice, grapes and raisins. Olives or olive oil are acceptible ingredients for the contest. Pomegranate juice may also be used. Submit recipes to the contact email associated with this press release. The winner, for each ingredient, will be published, and the recipe's creator will win an author and illustrator signed copy of "Ephus and the Praying Bushel, Ephus tells the Easter Story," written by "Save America Gathering" and "One Church // One Voice" CEO, Robert P. Berry. Please submit all entries by July 4, 2014.
