On this upcoming Sunday, June 28th, an estimated 2 million believers will observe the 7th annual Call2Fall. This time of united prayer is based upon 2 Chronicles 7:14 and other important calls to pray from America's history.
We are joining with Believers in thousands of churches in all 50 states, who will spend at least 5 minutes on our knees in prayer for our nation.
As we prepare for this special time of prayer, we will take you back into our email/ blog archive and share a message from 2012 that is a powerful confirmation of this weekend's call to prayer:
The Signs of the Times
Last week we saw a disturbing news posting. It stated that the President of the United States of America refused to meet with the Prime Minister of Israel.
We’re not sure if you understand the significance of this and we don’t have the time or space to get into all of that in this email/blog, but please know that it would signal the final blow for America if America turns its back on Israel.
It is profoundly true that an enemy of Israel would become an enemy of God. No amount of singing, "God Bless America" would change the outcome. Judgment would be swift and decisive.
Can you see the signs of the time? More than ever, there is no peace in our sleep. Every night we're awakened to pray.
In just the last few months, we have seen a massive drought sweep across America's farmlands. New volcanic eruptions and earthquakes are breaking out across the globe. A river in China turned blood red. Two tornadoes hit New York City on the same day. Another hurricane hit New Orleans on the exact same date as Hurricane Katrina. Nature itself is announcing judgment on the world.
Meanwhile, our nation continues to push for abortion on demand, gay marriage, and now a new movement has risen to the surface and that is the push for open marriage (multiple partners within a union). Waiting in the wings are those who want the right to express their sexual orientation to legally engage in physical relations with children. There is even a push to legalize incest.
Also, there are staggering numbers of young girls who are trapped as slaves in human trafficking, right here in America.
At the same time, we continue to see random shootings and bizarre acts of violence. Homes and schools are now included as some of the most dangerous places for children.
Then the most alarming reality is that we came across a chilling report from over three years ago. The Department of Homeland Security released a report to all local law enforcement agencies, stating that conservative groups (people who oppose abortion or gay marriage) are now considered to be domestic terrorists. The hatred against Christian Believers is at an all-time high in America.
We could go on and on, but we’re not trying to depress you or scare you. However, we are trying to stir you into action. And that action is to join us in PRAYER.
2 Chronicles 7: 13-15 reads, “When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.”
The Lord has put it on our hearts to meet every Sunday for nothing else except worship and prayer. We’re cancelling all of our plans and schedules. We’re just going to meet for prayer every Sunday until further notice. Just like we did three years ago, we’re going to start leading prayer sessions with you guys and with all who will join with us across the nation.
This prayer is not about politics. We’re not praying about Obama or the White House. We’re not praying against liberals, conservatives, Republicans or Democrats. Our prayer is far more desperate than that. We’re responding to God as a church family. We’re seeking God’s face and turning from our own wicked ways.
We just feel that we’re at a place where your personal issues and our national problems are beyond Chris and Carol Green’s sermons. Your personal situation is beyond private consultation and counseling sessions with us, as your pastors. Many circumstances are beyond motivational speeches and fund raisers. We can see the signs of our times. It’s time to PRAY!
We are bold and honest enough to tell you that whatever you’re going through, your pastors cannot help you in the way you really need it.
However, we can certainly lead you to the throne of Grace. We don’t intend to sound cruel or insensitive, but the prayer sessions are going to be far more effective than a private, personal conversation with us.
Now is the time for each one of us to seek God, like never before. The times are so desperate now, that your pastors, alone, cannot help you get through it. But we know the ONE who can!
So that’s why your pastors are calling upon all of us to humble ourselves, forgive one another; release people and seek God.
Let’s go for it!
LET'S COME TOGETHER AND PRAY!
