A man prays inside of David’s Tent, a 24/7 worship space located on the White House Ellipse from Sep. 15 to Nov. 4, 2014. The rosary around his neck indicates the faith his prayer aligns with. His clasped hands and bowed head convey a sense of determination that grounds his worship. All of these elements lend a spiritual energy that connects the subject to the symbolic cross in the background.

David’s Tent is a Christian-based nonprofit organization run by volunteer worship teams of all denominations from across the country. The organization’s vision to host 40 days of non-stop worship in the nation’s capital came true in 2012, and they have been invited back each year since then to spread their messages of spirituality.
