Newsboys and Marcos Wit on stage
“What you’re hearing tonight is a practice session for heaven,” Christian musician Marcos Witt called out to the crowd as he joined Newsboys in leading the multilingual worship. The reference alludes to a passage in Revelation—in the Bible—where people from every tribe and tongue worship before the throne of God.

Franklin Graham shared a message from Mark 10 about a blind Bartimaeus who called out to Jesus, asking for healing. “Son of David, have mercy on me” (Mark 10:48). Jesus stopped and in that moment, restored his sight. Bartimaeus' faith had made him well. Are you looking for healing? Jesus is standing there waiting for you, too.
