Another Holiday, Another Religious Right Prayer Rally

Do you think we’ll be able to make it through any holiday without some Religious Right group scheduling a call for repentance prayer event to coincide with it?

We just had the May Day prayer rally at the Lincoln Memorial and now the Family Research Council is scheduling its own Call 2 Fall effort for July 4:

On this day after the National Day of Prayer, I am excited to announce the relaunch of Call2Fall, our church-based call to humility, prayer, and repentance found in 2 Chronicles 7:14.

We are asking pastors and believers all across America to spend time on our knees for our nation on Sunday July, 4, 2010. Visit and click on “I’m in” to participate and ask your pastor to sign up your church as well.

The very day we celebrate our “Independence,” we need to re-declare our “Dependence” upon God in humble and repentant prayer. At minimum, we hope that those gathered in their places of worship will at least spend a few minutes on their knees in prayer on July 4. You can do much more, and the website will be continually updated with resources.

Again, visit and click on “I’m in” and encourage your friends to do the same. We are also on Facebook and Twitter, so spread the word.

Can you imagine what God would do if millions of Christians all across our land would actually answer the Call2Fall and mean it?

Interestingly, not only FRC organizing the events, but the political organization is actually providing lists of prayer targets, sample prayers, and lists of sins as well as complete sample sermons for churches and pastors to use [PDF]: 

God loves the nations. He desires that nations seek and find Him.

He has “made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him…” (Acts17:26-27, ESV).

He so loves the nations that He has determined to bless the nation whose God is the LORD (Psalm 33:12, ESV). However, let any nation choose to rebel against His love and will, and surely the painful consequences will come.

America is at a crossroads. The church must intercede for America unlike any period in our history. The consequences of failing to intercede now are unthinkable.
