The Response: A NATIONAL Call for Prayer

Interesting, this actually happened in Haiti shortly after the Earthquake. They canceled the Mardi Gras celebrations to instead have 3 days of fasting and prayer. [Video Link]


The goal is to fill 62,000 seat Reliant Stadium on August 6 and more in thousands of churches across America

AFA is encouraging Christians across the nation to join in a national day of prayer for our nation. Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has proclaimed Saturday, Aug. 6th, as a Day of Prayer and Fasting to seek God's guidance and wisdom in addressing the challenges that face our communities, states and nation. He has invited governors across the country to join him on Aug. 6 to participate in The Response, a non-denominational, apolitical, Christian prayer meeting hosted by the American Family Association at 62,000 seat Reliant Stadium in Houston. Gov. Perry also urged fellow governors to issue similar proclamations encouraging their constituents to pray that day for unity and righteousness for our states, nation and mankind.

Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas has indicated that he will participate. Other governors, including Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Haley Barbour of Mississippi, are considering participation. Gov. Paul LePage of Maine has issued a proclamation.
