Evangelist Franklin Graham has urged Christians from all over the US to join him in prayer for the country.
He announced an event named 'Prayer March 2020' in Washington DC on 26th September.
Rev Graham wants "thousands of families, pastors and churches" to walk from Lincoln Memorial to the US Captiol building, pausing to pray and different landmarks.
He said in a video on the event website: "America is in trouble, it's in distress, but we do have hope and that hope is in almighty God.
"We need to pray now more than ever, more than we've ever done in our life. Our communities are hurting, our people are divided and there's fear and uncertainty all around us.
"We're going to pray for this nation, we're going to pray for its leaders and we're going to pray that God will intervene and save this nation and we're going to do this in Jesus name."
While many of Rev Graham's followers commended him for holding the event, some others said they wouldn't be able to attend but will also join in prayer at noon from their homes, the same time when the event starts.
One Twitter criticised him for not announcing if any social distancing measures were going to be involved and commented: "This is a bad idea. Unless your goal is to get a lot of Christians infected with covid-19."
