Some amazing friends of ours, David and Tracy Ruleman, are organizing the second year of David's Tent, 40 days and nights of worship on the Ellipse of the White House. I want to introduce you to this upcoming event, and to David and Tracy and their ministry in and around Washington, DC.
Our nation is at the precipice of revival, and events like Reinhard Bonnke's crusades in the U.S. and David's Worship Tent on the Capitol grounds for 40 days of praise and prayer are key to this impending revival. Let’s all get involved in bringing America back to her knees before the Throne of God in worship to the true King of King and Lord of Lords. We are the light set on a hill that enlightens cities and nations. Let us shine and bring God's light to America!
David’s Tent will be raised up on the Ellipse of the White House for another 40 days of continuous worship from Sept. 24th - Nov. 5th.
The Washington DC House of Prayer has been raised up with 24/7 worship and now for the second year David’s Tent will be raised up on the Ellipse of the White House for another 40 days of continuous worship. The Lord Jesus will be worshipped and exalted in DC. It is the fulfillment of a vision for 40 days of worship on the National Mall with 24/7 worship. It had never been done before. The entire idea is historic and its implementation and execution miraculous. You can participate by attending and/or supporting this event financially.
The Background as to How This Vision Developed - As Told by David Ruleman
In 2000 we began worshipping in Washington DC. At first we went in once a month and then once a week.
Our heart was to see 24/7 worship established in the city. In 2002 Tracy and I took a group of leaders to Israel and late in the evening on March 9, 2002 the Moment Café was bombed by a terrorist. We were meeting in an East Jerusalem hotel and the building shook at impact. We had asked Rick Ridings, founder of Succat Halell, 24/7 House of Prayer in Jerusalem. to speak to the leaders. As sirens echoed off the hotel walls Rick said the question is not about Arabs and Jews - it is about “who will be worshipped on God's holy hill.’
We said to ourselves, "Our question is, 'Who will be worshipped on Capitol Hill?'” We came away more committed than ever to establishing a House of Prayer and 24/7 worship in Washington DC. The Gate continued to worship and welcome the presence of the Lord. Teams came monthly for 24-30 hours of Washington Worships. Other groups started meeting monthly to form a web of continuous worship.
Curt Malloy invested himself into the effort. Jane Snyder raised up youth from South East who kept all night watches and Thomas Kenny took over and continued to gather teams for Washington Worships.
In 2011 God began to move and a radical shift began to take place. Rick Ridings came to The Gate in Washington DC and was introduced to Jason Hershey. At a meeting in the Israel room at our house Rick prophesied that our time of preparing the way was ending and that God had raised up Jason to establish
The House of Prayer in Washington DC. We were to continue to build spiritual fires around the city and in a sense lob spiritual fire into DC. In 2011 we moved The Gate to Northern Virginia and on New Year’s Eve we “lobbed a fire ball “ into the city when we The Gate sent Jason back into the city to remain until the House of Prayer was built.
In the 12th year, 2012, Jason never left city limits. Worship began and the Lord added a vision for 40 days of worship on the National Mall with 24/7 worship. It had never been done before. The entire idea was historic and its implementation and execution miraculous. The Washington DC House of Prayer has been raised up with 24/7 worship and now for the second year David’s Tent will be raised up on the Ellipse of the White House for another 40 days of continuous worship. The Lord Jesus will be worshipped and exalted in DC.
The Gate is totally committed to the DC House of Prayer and David’s Tent and we encourage you to give.
Please give generously to The Gate to help pave the way for David’s Tent to be placed on the Ellipse of the White House again this year for 40 days to worship the King of Kings, September 24 through November 5. The Gate has written a check for thousands already because the time is growing short. Your involvement in this historic event can help change the nation.
