Barely a month after his home experienced damage from Hurricane Harvey and his ministry embarked on a massive operation to serve the city of Houston, Doug Stringer was so overwhelmed by the presence of the Lord, he sat down on a stage smack-dab in the middle of the National Mall in Washington D.C.

Stringer, who is president of Somebody Cares Ministries, put aside his personal needs to intercede on behalf of the country during Awaken the Dawn over the weekend.

"[This is a] marked moment we can look to and say, 'God, you did a work in the church,'" Stringer prayed. You did a defibrillation of our hearts so we would be awakened, so we would see lasting revival and an authentic reformation that doesn't just go from political cycle to political cycle but change the inward corruptions of the heart, change the broken cisterns, fix them Lord. Heal the fractured relationships. God, mend the fractured and cracked foundations so we can build on the unshakable kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ."
