And to think I-35 can be seen from my back yard . . . kind of.
A counter-culture initiative in cities along the I-35 highway is seeking to bring spiritual reformation in American culture.
For 35 days of the â€I-35: Highway of Holinessâ€ initiative, at least 12 cities along I-35 will host 24-hour prayer rooms. The initiative is part of the Light the Highway movement and will be held Oct. 28 – Dec. 1 along the 1,500-mile length of I-35, with events from Laredo, Texas, to Duluth, Minn. â€“ the ends of the interstate.
â€œWe want to start to build a Highway of Holiness for God that unites our nations, from the Canadian border to the Mexican border, and eventually extends around the world,â€ said Cindy Jacobs, founder of Light the Highway, in a statement. Light the Highway is a movement to bring spiritual reformation to cities, then regions and finally nations.
Throughout the campaign, young people will hold â€œPurity Siegesâ€ where they â€œlay siegeâ€ by praying at sites of impurity in their cities, such as abortion clinics and pornography stores.
Activities during the I-35 initiative also include a â€œRadical Evangelismâ€ effort by Heartland School of Ministry in Irving, Texas.
