IDOLATRY IN AMERICA
As our nation continues to reject God and His Word, Isaiah’s prophecy of darkness covering the land and deep darkness covering the people has become a stark reality in our nation (Isaiah 60:2). The ideas of freedom, diversity, equity, and inclusion have been hijacked and corrupted to advance evil agendas. Demonic spirits have been invited and welcomed into the highest seats of government in America, and altars have been erected to idol gods. Without intervention, God’s judgment is sure to come to America.
BUT THERE’S HOPE!
God still moves when His people pray! Throughout Scripture, God’s love, mercy, longsuffering, and forgiveness are abundantly displayed over and over again, whenever His people would return to Him with all their hearts and obey His Word. But prayer alone is not enough.
Our nation’s spiritual gates have been burned. The Altar of the Lord is broken down and must be rebuilt in our nation’s capital. When a nation is in crisis, God instructs His people to gather for a solemn assembly.
According to God’s Word, the healing of our land will not come from another election or any political party in power. The healing of our land will come from God alone, when His people humbly and unitedly seek His face with all their hearts in prayer.
Blow the ram’s horn in Jerusalem! Announce a time of fasting; Call the people together for a solemn meeting. — Joel 2:15 (NLT)
STREAMS COMING TOGETHER TO FORM A RIVER
We realize that there are many existing and powerful faith-based organizations and streams of prayer already flowing across our nation. It is our hope and vision to see those streams of prayer converge into one mighty river to collectively rebuild the Altar of the Lord in our nation’s capital at Museum of the Bible.No one individual, church, organization, or prayer network is capable of changing the spiritual atmosphere in America. National spiritual breakthrough and transformation will only come when believers, churches, and ministries come together to earnestly and unitedly seek the Lord.
Dr. Barry Black, United States Senate Chaplain
WHAT IS A PRAYER ALTAR?
A prayer altar is much more than just a time, gathering, or day of prayer. An altar is a gateway between the spiritual realm and the physical realm that must be tended to by righteous people—a place where God’s people intentionally seek Him—a place where His covenant is established or renewed on earth.In Scripture, anytime the nation was in crisis, God would call His people back to the altar. As they rebuilt the altar of the Lord and renewed their commitment to Him, God would come and heal the land and restore His presence and blessing among the people.At National Prayer Altar, it is our desire to not only gather for prayer and worship in-person in our nation’s capital, but to boldly stand before God as ambassadors for Christ on behalf of our nation, to renew America’s covenant with God. In Scripture, we see the prophet Elijah confronting and defeating evil on Mount Carmel by rebuilding the altar of the Lord. (1 Kings 18:20-40)
So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. — Ezekiel 22:30 (NKJV)
WHY MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE?
WHY MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE?
Museum of the Bible is a global, innovative, educational institution whose purpose is to invite all people to engage with the transformative power of the Bible. We believe that America must return to God by returning to God’s Word. When the Word of God is honored, believed, and acted upon, and coupled with fervent prayer, God’s blessing and national transformation will surely come.In the heart of our nation’s capital, Museum of the Bible has been erected as a world-class institution dedicated to God and His Word. We are grateful to have Museum of the Bible as home for National Prayer Altar.We believe Museum of the Bible is not just a museum, but is a ‘city set on a hill’ and a lighthouse to America in a time of spiritual darkness, and is the place from which all Christians are warmly invited to join together to experience the transformative power of the Bible and call upon the name of the LORD.
Museum of the Bible is located just off Capitol Hill where our nation's leaders make decisions every day. As a reflection of our mission to invite all people to engage with the transformative power of the Bible, we're thankful to be a convening place for the National Prayer Altar."
Harry Hargrave, CEO of Museum of the Bible
