A three-week revival seeking another “Great Awakening” for American Christianity begins Tuesday at a historical concert hall in Washington, D.C.

“This is the day and this is the hour” to pray for America, said evangelist Rodney Howard-Browne, founder and president of the Revival Ministries International in Tampa, Fla.

He and a host of Christian clergy will lead prayers and song at the “Celebrate America” revival at the DAR Constitution Hall in Northwest Washington on Tuesdays through Saturdays July 1 through July 19.

The goal is to see America “shaken,” so that it will “turn back to its roots, turn back to God,” Mr. Howard-Browne told supporters at a Capitol Hill event Monday night.

The power of God will feel “like a mighty, rushing wind,” he said, and “when it hits … whatever the devil planned, it’s all over.”

Admission to the evening events is free.

During daytime hours, witnesses will canvass local streets to invite people to the revival. Free tickets are also downloadable from the revival’s website, celebrateamericadc.com.

Scheduled speakers include Bishop Harry Jackson, senior pastor of Hope Christian Church and presiding bishop of the International Communion of Evangelical Churches; Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel and dean of Liberty University School of Law; Apostle Guillermo Maldonado, founder of King Jesus International Ministry; Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, vice president of Family Research Council; Lea Carawan, executive director of Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation; Bishop E. W. Jackson, founder of The Called Church; and Rev. C. L. Bryant, Baptist minister and founder of grass-roots coalition “One Nation Back to God.”

Sponsors include Christian Coalition of America, World Net Daily, Christian Television Network, The Washington Times, Cornerstone Television Network, American Insights, InService America, Restore America, Gun Owners of America and Bikers to DC.

The South-African-born evangelist and his wife, Adonica Howard-Browne, moved their family to the United States in the late 1980s. In 1999, their ministry rented out Madison Square Garden for six weeks for a revival.
