Call2Fall: Sunday, June 29, 2013

Every year, our ministry lends our full support to the Call2Fall: a call for prayer and repentance, sponsored by the Family Research Council.

This year, the Call2Fall will take place next Sunday, June 29, 2014. We encourage all of our readers to forward this alert to all who are on your own prayer network so that we might join the nation in observing this very special day of repentance. Thank you.

About the Call2Fall

On Sunday, June 29, 2014, faithful Christians across America will be on their knees, praying for our nation. To join this movement, visit and click "I'm in." When you do, you will see your first name and your state pop up on the front page of the website.

In 2009, I was challenged by an elderly lady to use my influence to call our nation to "our knees" in prayer (see 2 Chron.7:14). That same day I read about the Continental Congress' call to prayer in 1775 that resulted in 3 million colonial Americans gathering on their knees in repentant prayer for our troubled, fledgling country. That was the beginning of Call2Fall.

Watch our short video about the first prayer in the Continental Congress. Many of our Founding Fathers were moved to tears and to greater dependence on God as they faced grave uncertainty on the eve of war with Great Britain. May we, too, humble ourselves in prayer before God in this pivotal year for our nation!

Forward the video to your pastor and ask if your church could set aside a few minutes in your June 29 worship services to pray for our nation. There are many church-friendly tools and resources like this brief video that can help your church have a meaningful Call2Fall.

In fact, we are partnering with the National Day of Prayer, the Congressional Prayer Caucus, Intercessors for America and many others who are collaborating to call America to pray. Call2Fall is uniquely the church-based, worship-service focused part of the effort. We are on Facebook and Twitter, so a couple of ways you can help is by posting a message on your Facebook page or Tweet about the Call2Fall. So help us spread the word.

Join us in declaring our national "dependence" upon the Lord on Sunday, June 29th. If enough Americans will unite in humble, repentant prayer, I am trusting that God will hear our prayers, forgive our sin, and heal our land (2 Chron.7:14).

The Call2Fall is nothing fancy. It is not a slick new program. No big production is necessary. It is simple. We are just talking about a definite time during worship on Sunday, June 29, 2014 when we get on our knees and faces before the Lord in repentant prayer, pleading with God to reshape our lives, renew our land, and send times of refreshing (See 2 Chronicles 7:14; Acts 3:19).

Join us in living out the Call2Fall Declaration and preparing our hearts for Sunday, June 29th. Here are some resources to help you on this journey:

2 Chronicles 7:14

2 Chronicles 7:14

" . . . 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Joel 2:12-19

Joel 2:12-19

12 "Even now," declares the Lord,
"return to me with all your heart,
with fasting and weeping and mourning."

13 Rend your heart
and not your garments.
Return to the Lord your God,
for he is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and abounding in love,
and he relents from sending calamity.

14 Who knows? He may turn and relent
and leave behind a blessing-
grain offerings and drink offerings
for the Lord your God.

15 Blow the trumpet in Zion,
declare a holy fast,
call a sacred assembly.

16 Gather the people,
consecrate the assembly;
bring together the elders,
gather the children,
those nursing at the breast.
Let the bridegroom leave his room
and the bride her chamber.

17 Let the priests, who minister before the Lord,
weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say, "Spare your people, Lord.
Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn,
a byword among the nations.
Why should they say among the peoples,
'Where is their God?'"

18 Then the Lord was jealous for his land
and took pity on his people.

19 The Lord replied to them:

"I am sending you grain, new wine and olive oil,
enough to satisfy you fully;
never again will I make you
an object of scorn to the nations.
