Dawning of A New Day


Prayer HandsDawning of a New Day:  A Worship & Prayer Experience

Terry & Barbi Franklin are singers, songwriters, and speakers that lead worship and prayer events, and marriage retreats, ministering now for 33 years in 40 nations worldwide, “Inspiring Love in the Home & Revival in the Church.”  In this new season, Barbi said, “It’s the dawning of a new day in America as the Church is arising to pray and sing to the Lord again with a love and passion like we have never seen!”  Terry added, “We are so encouraged by all the movements of prayer and fasting that have been escalating across our nation since 2016. You can sense the beginning of revival and awakening and a renewed hunger for God that always produces spiritual fruit.”

This event is a worship and prayer experience with Terry & Barbi Franklin that will encourage the Church to press into God and His Word and join the great army of worshipers and prayer warriors who are corporately and individually praying through until true revival comes in America!  They believe we could be on the threshold of another Great Awakening, more expansive than any our nation has seen in its history.  They believe that the body of Christ must earnestly seek God in prayer and contend for the end-time harvest that Bible prophecy reveals.

Last year Terry & Barbi were privileged to lead worship and prayer, and marriage retreats all across America.  They led worship for events such as the “National Prayer Assembly” in Washington DC (with leaders of national prayer organizations like “National Day of Prayer,” “Intercessors for America,” “Capitol Hill Prayer Partners,” “International House of Prayer” and more).

They are also experiencing favor among leaders who they are gathering to join movements such as Gateway Church’s “The Gathering” (an unprecedented live-streamed nationwide sacred assembly, bridging denominational barriers with leaders from all across America in 2016), as well as Franklin Graham’s “Decision America Tours.” In 2016, nearly 9,000 people came to pray at Terry & Barbi’s own state Capitol in Nashville, Tennessee. And in 2017, they joined Franklin Graham’s leaders for prayer gatherings, and led prayer walks with local pastors for Franklin Graham’s Evangelism Rally in Clarksville, Tennessee.  Soon, in September of 2018, they are leading many national ministries in a 24 hour, 3 day event right at their own Tennessee State Capitol’s Legislative Plaza.  They expect thousands to come to worship, pray, and read the Bible under 7 Tents, including 40 Legislators from the Tennessee Prayer Caucus.  Their local leaders are joining them in praying for and pursuing opportunities for many to be saved and changed forever through this public worship and prayer event downtown Nashville!

Back in 2011, Terry & Barbi saw revival in Egypt being birthed through the fasting, prayer, and worship movement.  It has since touched millions of lives across the Middle East.  So, they asked, “Lord, why can’t this happen in the United States?” and so, they began initiating fasting, prayer, and worship everywhere God opened doors, starting with “Awaken Us: 40 Days to Fast & Pray,” promoted by the nationwide radio network, American Family Radio at the end of 2011.  Nearly 500 churches and well over 30,000 people participated across America.

 Aside from their international ministry, they have also been deeply burdened for their own city of Nashville, Tennessee.  They have seen music greatly misused in “Music City.”  So, in 2011, they began to spiritually “rename” their city, “Worship City” along with others who had the same heart for Nashville.  Following the Lord’s direction, they began a weekly home worship and prayer meeting that has since also become a base where Nashville area worship and prayer leaders meet frequently to pray and seek God for their city and for another Great Awakening: “Changing our City to Change the World through Fasting Prayer & Worship.”   See www.WorshipCity.US to learn more about our local ministry efforts in Tennessee.

Worship City is also a Trademark and dba of Franklin Ministries, Inc., a  non-profit 501(c)3 organization for city events like David’s Tent Tennessee, as well as various other 24 hour local and nationwide worship and prayer meetings.
