MyPillow Inventor Is Among Christian Leaders Driving Transformative Church Movement Sweeping Nation, Globe
NEW YORK — Mike Lindell, whom most Americans know as the ‘MyPillow Guy’ is joining “The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance” (TheReturn.org) and the hope Jesus offers addicts as a key to national and global revival.
“Right now in our country we have the biggest opportunity in history: We have addiction,” Lindell said. “With addiction, the addicts and the addicts’ families are praying for their souls. They’re open to hope. And where is that hope? The hope is in Jesus.”
Lindell knows firsthand about the difficulties addicts face, having lived under the power of addiction for 20 years. Ever since he became a Christian and God freed him from his addiction, he has worked to see that same transformation happen in others.
He uses his company to support recovering addicts and to give them an opportunity to get back to a healthy lifestyle. While he helps individuals, he also hopes to see national transformation, which is why he serves as a board member for “The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance.”
“The Return” is a mass movement of individual believers and entire churches devoted to praying for Americans to repent and return to the God of the Bible. Lindell plans to speak at their gathering on Sept. 26 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. where Christians from across the country will gather to worship, hear from influential speakers and pray for a new Great Awakening in the country.
Lindell has seen his life radically changed by God, and he hopes and prays alongside many Christian leaders to see the same happen in America.
“The Return is America’s moment to unite together in prayer asking for God’s blessing on our nation,” Lindell said. “This unique gathering of believers from all walks of life is our time to show the world the hope of Jesus. Believers need to come in true humility and repentance for God to save our nation. Hope is what America needs — the hope that only Jesus can bring.”
“The Return” is for all believers who love the Lord from all denominations and backgrounds. Leaders already on board with “The Return” include Jonathan Cahn and Kevin Jessip (co-chairs), Dr. James Dobson, Michele Bachmann, Pat Boone, Mark Gonzales, Robert Morris, Marcus Lamb, John Kilpatrick, Pierre Bynum, Gen. William Boykin, Carter Conlon, Bishop Harry Jackson, Alveda King, Anne Graham Lotz, Pat and Gordon Robertson, Kevin and Sam Sorbo, Stephen E. Strang, E.W. Jackson and many more supporters listed at thereturn.org/faith-leaders/.
Co-chairs of “The Return” Jonathan Cahn and Kevin Jessip have recorded a special video about the event, which already has over a million views. Watch here.
“The Return” is set for 40 days before the presidential election, and on the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower, in the days of America’s founding and dedication to God. Surrounding the “The Day of Return” on Sept. 26 at the Washington Mall will be 10 days, known from ancient times as the Days of Awe, to be set as a special time of prayer and repentance from Sept. 18-28.
Coordinated events within “The Return” movement will also take place throughout America’s cities, towns, houses of worship and homes, as well as in multiple countries around the world, as many believe the nation has been given a critical window of opportunity to repent and return to God.
