Dear Friend,
Recently, the Lord opened the door for me to speak on Capitol Hill before a gathering of leaders and Members of Congress. In the speech I spoke of America's turning from God, the signs of national judgment, and I gave a call for a national day of prayer and repentance on 9/11. Here now are excerpts from the official declaration of 9-11, National Day of Prayer & Repentance:

Word for the Month & for Thursday, Aug. 1
Scripture: II Chron. 7:14
See Message: If My Peoplern"

The Scriptures declare: "Righteousness exalts a nation. But sin is a reproach to any people." American civilization was founded upon the Word of God, dedicated to His purposes, and consecrated to His glory. America was established by its first founders as "a city on a hill," a light to the world, and modeled after the pattern of ancient Israel. As affirmed by the Scriptures and reaffirmed by Abraham Lincoln in his national call to prayer and repentance, only those nations are blessed 'whose God is the Lord.' America has thus been blessed more than any nation in modern history, in prosperity, in power, in position, in security, in peace.

But America, as ancient Israel, has forgotten, departed from, and turned against the God of its foundation. We have driven God out of our public square, out of our culture, out of our government, and out of the education of our children. In the void, we have replaced Him with idols, greed, carnality, materialism, immorality.... We have called good 'evil' and evil, 'good.' We have profaned the sacred and have sanctified the profane. We have killed over fifty million of our most innocent and helpless, and their blood is on our hands....

Therefore, in view of the critical nature of the hour, we are led to declare a National Day of Prayer and Repentance to take place on 9/11. This is a call for all believers to follow the words of 2 Chronicles 7:14 to humble themselves, to pray, to seek His face, to search their ways, to confess their sins, and to take concrete steps and effective action to true and lasting repentance -- and to do this both individually and corporately. Having done this, it is a call to then pray for America, to intercede for its sins and its future, and in the name of the Messiah, to seek God for mercy, forgiveness, repentance, healing, restoration, salvation, return, and revival.

This call is to believers, ministers, pastors, churches throughout the land who are led -- to apply 2 Chronicles 7:14 in whatever way they are led by God -- in individual prayer and repentance, in corporate prayer, in holy and solemn gatherings throughout the land, in fasting, in worship, in intercession, in revival, in homes, houses of worship, towns and cities across the nation, as well as specially appointed gatherings and events in New York City and Washington D.C. ...."

My co-laborer and partner in the Great Commission, please join me in dedicating this coming 9/11 for prayer and repentance, and spread the word to your congregations, pastors, ministries, and friends that they would do the same in whatever way they are so led. Having done this, let us entrust ourselves and this nation to the mercy and grace of God that His will and purposes be fulfilled. May the Lord bless you this month with all the blessings of His love.

Your brother and co-laborer, in His love and service,
