LOS ANGELES, March 31, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ — Saturday April 9, 2016 is the 110th commemoration of the historic Azusa Street Revival and GOD TV will be marking the occasion by screening Azusa Now from Los Angeles and United Cry DC16 from the US Capital.
Azusa Now is a 15-hour healing and evangelism crusade at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum where 100,000 people are expected to gather, while United Cry DC16 aims to bring 30,000 church leaders together on the National Mall to pray for America’s future.
“The Azusa Street Revival of 1906 was the most powerful expression of revival in modern times as multitudes became Christians and experienced healing,” said GOD TV President and Founder, Wendy Alec. “It was also a historic movement that transcended barriers as diverse people gathered in bonds of love, unity and prayer.”
Azusa Now LIVE and exclusive to GOD TV, on April 9, 2016
Hosted by Lou Engle of TheCall, Azusa Now will air LIVE from Los Angeles to 280 million homes worldwide. The mass stadium event will feature many of GOD TV’s most popular speakers including Bill Johnson, Heidi Baker; Daniel Kolenda and Todd White as well as local pastor, Shawn Bolz of Expression58 in Los Angeles. Bethel Music and Jesus Culture will lead worship.
TheCall has brought millions together over the past 15 years to fast and pray, repent and worship and many of these gatherings have been televised LIVE on GOD TV. Now 110 years on from the Azusa Street Revival, TheCall hopes to see revival of this magnitude happen again, at Azusa Now.
“Having spent 30 years fasting and praying for revival, I am stunned to witness the corporate anticipation of a bold, new Jesus movement arising from every sector of the Body of Christ,” says Lou Engle. “Revival hangs heavy in the air, waiting to fall with an explosion of evangelism, racial healing, awakening, and miracles.” Visit www.god.tv/azusanow for more information.

United Cry is a mass event at the Lincoln Memorial that aims to bring 30,000 pastors to the US capital to pray for America’s future. Viewers can join thousands of church leaders on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. as they intercede for America, asking God for forgiveness, blessing and spiritual awakening for the nation.
Prayers of repentance will be led by many Christian leaders declaring the USA to be “One Nation, Under God.” Speakers include: Anne Graham Lotz, Ed Silvoso, Jonathan Cahn, Alveda King, Harry Jackson, Jim Garlow, Doug Stringer, Dick Eastman and many others. Worship will be led by the Gateway Music Teams, Rita Springer, Roy Fields and Forever Jones.
