This is a great project. The Bible, reportedly, can be read from cover to cover in 73 hours, so they should complete it in this 90 hours, even with some breaks planned in.
This purpose is an important one:
“Because the Bible is at the heart of America's founding principles, it should be voiced at the heart of our Federal Government, exhorting our nation to return to God's precepts,” the site says. “Therefore, it is our desire to publicly read God’s Holy Word on the steps of the nation's Capitol, every year, for ninety consecutive hours.”
Psalm 121:1-2 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
Annual Bible Marathon was a Big Success on Capitol Hill
The 31st annual U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon ended Wednesday after more than 400 readers read in 15 different languages from Genesis through Revelation in 90 continuous hours on Capitol Hill. The youngest reader was 10 and the oldest 85 years old.
The reading marathon began on Sept. 12. It traditionally takes place on the West Terrace of the U.S. Capitol, begins in May and ends on the National Day of Prayer service.
However, this year, Faith and Liberty hosted and facilitated the event in its Ministry Center across from the Supreme Court building with readers participating in person and virtually. Seedline International brought in a team that provided incredible technical infrastructure to facilitate the Bible Reading Marathon. As a result, more than 54,000 viewers watched the event.
Participants included U.S. House of Representatives Jody Hice, Doug LaMalfa, Louie Gohmert, Vicky Hartzler, Jeff Duncan, Cathy McMorris Rodgers and U.S. Senator James Lankford. A Chinese church brought over 25 readers who read in Mandarin, Cantonese and Korean.
Missionaries from South Korea read virtually, and multiple churches reserved hours and took turns reading from their hometown. Residents of the House of Ruth Transitional Living Center read for two hours. The founder of the center started a Bible reading marathon in the prison years ago with 53 readers, and many of them became Christians as a result.
