"It started as a monument, to God, in prayer," said Robert P. Berry, CEO of "One Church // One Voice," and "Save America Gathering," the Martinez, California based non-profits at the center of "555 Days of Prayer to Save America." Berry continued speaking, saying; "We had been in Washington, DC, in October of 2012, for the wonderfully blessed, 10/20/12 "Save America Gathering." The Washington Monument is 555 feet tall. It towers over the Capitol of the United States of America. I wondered, "Could we pray a monument to God, for 555 days? Can we fall down on our knees, before God, in a strategic intercession for the lost and wandering United States of America, before our continued path brings Holy Wrath down, upon us, as a nation and a people?""
Berry, a retired disabled veteran, had received a call from The Lord, to "Gather the Church." "One Church // One Voice" was the direct result of this:an organization dedicated to breaking down the sectarian and denominational, and relational walls which we, as Christians, and followers of God, have constructed, over the last two-thousand years, and, during our own lives. In "555 Days of Prayer to Save America," we responded to the Will of God to have His nation, The United States of America, also in line with and responsive to the Will of God. The 555-day-long prayer started with a five-day petition for The Lord's ear; for Him to hear our prayers. It was followed by 50 days of prayers of thanksgiving to God, Almighty and to our Saviour, Jesus, who is Christ. Then came five strategic prayers of 100-day length. The first was for confession, seeking mercy and forgiveness for our own sins, that we might be the holiest prayer warriors we could be. Then, we prayed for mercy and forgiveness of the sins of The Church. We live in the time of the television program, "Sinister Ministers," and we know of the offenses which have occured in the falsely purloined Name of The Lord. So, we prayed in intercession, and, against those offensive things done by His Church; sullying The Name. Then, we prayed a strategic prayer of intercession for the sins and spiritual shortcoming of the U.S.A. We could have taken two-hundred days..., but we kept building our prayer monument. We cried out, from our knees, to The Lord, for one-hundred days, for the restoration and purification of His people, His Church. And, now, we are at the last ten days of the final prayer of one-hundred day length: a prayer for the healing and restoration of the United States of America."
