The Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville was the site of the Day of Prayer Christian revival tour on Saturday, where 5,000 showed up to pray and sing at the War Memorial Plaza at an event hosted jointly by Turning Point USA Faith and Let Us Worship, with thousands more watching online.
The Nashville stop took place less than a week after the horrific school shooting that happened at The Covenant School, in which three students and three staff members were left dead.
Sean Feucht, an evangelist who fell into the spotlight when he pushed back against COVID-era restrictions, kicked off the event by reading from Jeremiah 33:6, per The Tennessean.
“No matter what you’ve gone through, I will bring health and healing,” Feucht read. “I will heal my people and let them enjoy abundance, peace and security.”
The event was professionally filmed, as it was the result of the partnership between Turning Point USA Faith and Let Us Worship meant to promote Christian values in American politics and culture. The Kingdom to the Capitol tour is set to stop in every state capitol across the United States between 2023 and 2024.
On Youtube, a live stream of the event garnered 21,000 views since airing. On Facebook, the live stream has received 32,000 views.
The organizers of the event reported that Saturday’s event was specifically tailored toward the horrific shooting that took place at The Covenant School, where three nine-year-old children and three staff members were killed. Rita Springer was there with sermons and performances, according to the report.
Worshipers can be seen with their eyes closed, crying, mourning, and praying for the city amid the tragedy that had taken place at the Christian school on March 27.
Feucht said: "I want to say with all compassion, with all sensitivity, and with no flippancy at all that Hallie, Evelyn, William, Katherina, Cynthia and Mike were welcomed into their prepared place in Heaven by the son of God himself.”
"Let's not let trouble, anxiety and worry overshadow the hope of Heaven. Heaven is a place where life reigns and death dies."
The only politician to address the crowd was Sen. Jack Johnson, who said: "There are very few things that are as beautiful to see as the kingdom gathered here in a public square to worship our almighty God.”
"I felt led to read Psalm 34:18: 'The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’”
Audrey Hale, the individual who killed six people in the Nashville attack, identified as transgender, and had apparently planned the attack for months, according to recent reports. A motive that would explain why Hale did what she did is still unknown.
