Experiencing National Days of Prayer in Haiti

March 22nd, 2010 § 1

Our second day in Haiti also happened to be the second of three national days of prayer and fasting that were happening all across Haiti that weekend.  We had no idea that this would be going on when we scheduled and planned the trip.

It was incredible.  Everywhere we went in Port-au-Prince, there were people overflowing out of the churches.  We visited two gatherings but we must have seen dozens more.  The first we visited was being held in a walled-off field and there must have been somewhere around 2,000 people there.  The second probably had around 5,000 people.  It was being held at a church, but the church couldn’t hold everyone so they had set up in an open courtyard next to the church.  The church was actually being used as an overflow area!  On top of that, people were crammed into alleyways and side streets all around the gathering.

At both gatherings there was preaching and praying and singing to God for hours upon hours.
