Call To Prayer: Nation In Crisis

This email had been sent to pastors throughout the U.S.A. It is bold, but brave and much needed in these desperate times in our our nation!
Many will be angry because of the Separation of Church & State issue. Let them. I love my nation, my family & friends too much to let misguided sentiments stop me from petitioning God for His help! Please keep August 6, 2011 as a Day of Prayer & Fasting! God Bless America.

In a most unusual move, Texas Governor Rick Perry has asked the other 49 governors to join him in calling a Joel 2 “solemn assembly,” a day of prayer, fasting and worship. How long has it been since a governor has called for a “solemn assembly?”

Furthermore, it appears that no governor in American history has invited all other governors to join him in such a call.  Read his proclamation here

Allow me to be candid. You and I both know America is in trouble. Our communities and congregations are besieged by moral disintegration, overwhelming debt, employment uncertainty, global terrorism, national disasters and more.

As Christian pastors and leaders, it's time to unite on our knees before God. The Response is not an entertainment event, a day to celebrate America, or a time to cast blame on others for the current crisis in our country. It is a trumpet call to prayer and fasting, to authentic humility and personal repentance on the part of every Christian in the nation.

We believe that there is hope for America - and we will find it as we call on Jesus' name and ask our Heavenly Father for His mercy on us as a people.

Go to The Response  website to learn who is endorsing this gathering, to register, and to find materials you can use to invite your congregation to join you. Check back regularly, as new information and endorsements are added daily.

I sincerely hope I see you there!

  1. I may not be able to be present at this Texas stadium but my prayers will be joined to theirs!

  2. Hi Nanette, I haven't heard of this call to prayer by our governors. That's a wonderful idea and I pray that many of them will accept this call and join in. God Bless.
