Introducing Call2Fall 2013, Part 3

This call to fall on our knees before God is not an end in itself, but rather an opening for the Holy Spirit to move in a phenomenal way at a very critical time.  I believe the answers we are seeking will then begin to flow freely.

I shared these thoughts with FRC’s Pastors Council; a group of leading pastors from across the country who have partnered with FRC to help us better serve the nation’s churches. I spoke with other leading pastors from various denominations. I spoke with long-time leaders in the intercessory prayer movement and with nationally known youth leaders.

All agreed that given our national circumstances, the crises in nearly every sphere of American life – the greatest crisis being our abandon of God, Biblical standards, ethics and morals, both  in the Church and the public square (our President has repeatedly said that “the United States is no longer a Christian nation”). Scripture that a nation that has known God, then turned its back on Him, will be severely judged (Dt 8:11-20; Ps 9:17).

America cannot prosper without God’s blessing. Those ultimately responsible – our pastors and churches, those who are part of the Household of God by faith in Jesus Christ, must urgently embrace the promise of 2 Chronicles 7:14, and return to God with humility.

We hope to involve at least a remnant of God’s people, 10% of America’s Bible believing churches. That would be over 30,000 churches. We propose to do so by word of mouth – pastors contacting pastors, people telling their pastors. Time is short and this will requires that believers who understand the urgency of the hour be messengers to get the word out. Churches have schedules, and spreading the word will take time but the urgency of the hour requires an urgent response.  The Fourth of July lands on a Saturday this year. Many churches set aside the Sunday closest to the 4th as Citizenship Sunday, to celebrate America’s Christian heritage and the great liberty it has brought us. Would it not be appropriate for us to make Sunday, July 5th  – a day for God’s people, in churches all over America, to fall…on our knees before a holy and gracious God?

God’s pastors have been given authority by God to call for times of prayer and fasting in their churches, with this in mind, we are asking pastors and churches to join us in this urgent endeavor. Visit our blog often, read the posts by pastors and key Christian leaders and post your responses. Help make Call2Fall a time of genuinely humbling ourselves before a Holy God, for the sake of our nation.

With Hope in God’s Mercy,

Tony Perkins
