Pastor Jim Garlow, of the Skyline Church in San Diego, spoke at the "Washington — A Man Of Prayer" event April 27 at the U.S. Capitol, where he announced that the event may have been an historic moment (video below).
Garlow (pictured, right), who has a long history of anti-gay activism, according to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), said a final prayer at the end of the conservative Christian event:
Father God, we figuratively remove our shoes and because this is your place, this is your moment. Who knows what future historians might write about what began those days in April when people began to gather, called congressmen, and began to worship you and praise your name and call on your name and ask for you to give us mercy when we really deserve judgment.
Who knows but what this is actually the turning point, it may not be manifested in every way quite yet, but who knows if in the realm of the heavenly, what's been declared here could someday be identified as the moment when things began to shift in the heavenly realm and the name of Yeshua was lifted up again and God is honored in this place, this city and around this nation. Thank you, Father God, for what you are doing and what you have just done.
Garlow then called for a "clap offering" for God.
Dan Cummins (pictured, left), the creator of the event, wrote on the event's website: "On April 27, 2016 members of Congress, Christian leaders, and people of faith in homes and churches across the nation will join together to honor Washington as a man of Christian faith. Together, we will offer prayers on behalf of the nation, our President and his Cabinet, the Supreme Court and its Justices, and members of Congress."
As part of those "prayers on behalf of the nation," WND.com reports that during the event, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn repeatedly slammed President Obama and the U.S. Supreme Court over gay marriage and LGBT rights.
