After the 68th National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. on Thursday morning, worship leader and businessman Sean Feucht called for national unity.
“This morning was historic,” Feucht shared in a video that he shared to Instagram along with his wife.
Prime ministers, heads of state, members of congress, presidents, democrats, and republicans gathered to pray for America and the future of the country.
“This morning was really incredible,” he shared. “I think it just showed us why we need to come together this season like never before. The speaker at the prayer breakfast was sharing that contempt is tearing this nation apart, which is true.”
“Right now we are more divided, more polarized than ever before,” he added.
The worship leader referenced his home state of California, emphasizing all the division that is seen amidst the crises taking place there. From the housing crisis, the homelessness crisis, the blackouts, to the fires, there are so many problems and so much division.
“I was really stirred at the opportunity and the potential at what could happen if we come across the aisle and join hands,” he added. “I think a lot of it starts in the place of prayer.”
“That’s why I’m so grateful that so many people in our government and in our history have gathered for this event.”
“It was incredible,” Feucht’s wife Kate chimed in. “The two congressmen that were hosting today, one was democrat and one was republican, and they’re actually roommates.”
“It was so beautiful because they kept talking about how much they love each other. They disagree on almost everything but they know how to have good respect for one another. It was profound for me, especially going into 2020,” Kate added.
Feucht added how the event was uplifting for him and reminded him of the power of prayer.
“Today opened our eyes and really gave us hope and a vision for what it could look like to join together,” he concluded. “I think it starts in a place of prayer, and then from there, anything is possible if we work together.”
Feucht announced he was running for congress in September 2019, a surprise to most as his main occupation is as a worship leader at Bethel. A few months later, in December, Feucht along with a few others were invited to the White House to pray and worship inside.
“We were invited by this administration to worship inside the White House today,” he wrote in an Instagram post, sharing a video of the worship.
