America’s issues are not primarily financial, political or moral. Neither does America’s hope lie in one leader or institution. Our hope is found in the One who desires for us to turn to Him with our hearts. This is our response – to call on Jesus on behalf of America, that He might hear our cry and heal our land.
The Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation at a crossroads. No egos, no logos, no other agenda. Our purpose is to exalt Christ alone.
In Joel 2:12, a nation at the crossroads receives a God-provided solution to their need when they are told to "return to Me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning" (contrition and humility). In that day, the command was for everyone to stop what they were doing and gather for a "sacred assembly," to turn to God with prayer and fasting.
These prayer gatherings are strictly non-political, non-denominational, multi-generational and multi-ethnic. This is not a day for preachers to pontificate, or for any politicians to promote themselves. Rather these are days to focus on 2 things; Prayer for our nation, and Exaltation of Jesus Christ.
"Nina and I attended the first 2.5 hrs. and were so blessed to sense the pleasure and joy of God in the worship and the program. I'm not a very emotional charismatic Christian, but I was unable to stop crying when I realized we were all truly praising and praying in unity together. Thanks to all of you who put this great event together. I would like to know more about the leadership that had the vision to do this.
"Attended The Response yesterday. Very well done! No offering was taken. Are you accepting donations?"
"I just want to say thank you so much for organizing this incredible day and allowing GOD to use you to put this event together. I thank GOD for the opportunity and ability to attend this crucial event. I was blessed by the young woman that lead us in worship and the man that facilitated the gathering. May the LORD continue to strengthen and keep you ALL and continue to use you for HIS glory."
"It was the most moving experience of my life."
"Thank you so much for providing the opportunity to join with other Christians and worship. It was very powerful. I am 50 years old and have never participated in something so spiritually fulfilling in my life, words can't describe it."
