Non-stop worship continues outside White House

WASHINGTON - A non-stop 40-day worship service continues on the Ellipse, the park just south of the White House.
  
A large tent is erected over folding chairs and a stage where musicians have been leading hymns and prayers around the clock since late last month. They don't plan to stop until election day.
  
The director of David's Tent DC, Jason Hershey, says it's modeled after the worship King David established when he reigned in Jerusalem.
  
Hershey read Psalm 47 from the stage Sunday on the eve of the final presidential debate, which will focus on foreign policy. The Scripture reminded the assembled worshippers that "God reigns over the nations," and "God is the king of all the Earth."
