The Response

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD - Psalm 33:12 NASB
Fellow Americans,

Right now, America is in crisis: we have been besieged by financial debt, terrorism, and a multitude of natural disasters. As a nation, we must come together and call upon Jesus to guide us through unprecedented struggles, and thank Him for the blessings of freedom we so richly enjoy.

Some problems are beyond our power to solve, and according to the Book of Joel, Chapter 2, this historic hour demands a historic response. Therefore, on August 6, thousands will gather to pray for a historic breakthrough for our country and a renewed sense of moral purpose.
I sincerely hope you’ll join me in Houston on August 6th and take your place in Reliant Stadium with praying people asking God’s forgiveness, wisdom and provision for our state and nation. There is hope for America. It lies in heaven, and we will find it on our knees.

-Rick Perry, Governor of Texas

Please go to The Response site to learn more. I urge everyone to participate. You don't have to go to Houston, just as you don't have to be in a church to pray and fast. You can stay at home in fasting and prayer. Rick Perry said it best, "there is hope for America. It lies in heaven, and we will find it on our knees." Please participate. May God Bless America.
