PRAYER from Page 20 themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” The Return is designed to be a gathering to encourage people to gather, fast, pray in sincerity and repent. Accordingly, The Return is a national observance of prayer scheduled for Sept. 26 in Washington, D.C. that focuses on five acts that lead to God’s redemption of the human condition. The acts include repentance, a 180-degree turnaround in a person’s heart and mind to turn away from a sinful, self-centered way within; reconciliation, a change in the relationship between God and man that involves acknowledging a break has occurred, forgiveness and letting go of offenses; restoration in one’s relationship with God; revival that is maintained by obedience to the Holy Spirit and being obedient to God’s Word; and reformation, where, as churches and individuals humble themselves, pray, and repent of personal, national and corporate sins, revival and the favor of God will occur. Subsequently, Cahn and Jessip will be joined on Sept. 26 by a group of religious leaders on board with The Return such as Pat Robertson, Dr. James KEEP DEER COMING BACK!

People are looking for hope, answers and prayer, and we want to be there for them,” said Mark Aaron, one of the planners for the event. Aaron explained there will be tables set up where people can go and speak to a pastor or spiritual leader regarding questions they have, struggles they are having, or if they want someone to pray with them. Aaron encourages those who are unable to attend the event to participate from where they are that day by taking time to stop what they are doing, examine their hearts, and repent and get right with the Lord. Similarly, Cahn said in his video announcement, “(The Return begins now) with you and me as we commit this time and this year for return, prayer, repentance and revival; to commit, first, to our own repentance and to begin actually living in revival, and then to pray for others, the return and revival of our nation, and the world.” Aaron said it feels good stepping out to make a difference and said prayer is the lifeline and communication with God.
