On August 6, the nation will come together at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas for a solemn gathering of prayer and fasting for our country. We believe that America is in a state of crisis. Not just politically, financially or morally, but because we are a nation that has not honored God in our successes or humbly called on Him in our struggles. According to the Bible, the answer to a nation in such crisis is to gather in humility and repentance and ask God to intervene. The Response will be a historic gathering of people from across the nation to pray and fast for America
Liberty Lighthouse Fellowship, located at 321 Old River Crossing in Johnson City, will be hosting a
broadcast of this momentous national occasion. The entire event will be an all day venue in Houston, but Liberty Lighthouse Fellowship is inviting the surrounding populous to participate between the hours of 3:00 and 5:00 pm. Live streaming will be most accessible at this time. Anyone who believes in the power of prayer is welcome to attend. The sanctuary will be accessible to anyone who wants to participate in unity with the following proclamation submitted by the Governor of Texas, Rick Perry:
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 on August 6th and take your place 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.
Sincerely, Governor Rick Perry
God bless each of you who will be praying and we look forward to seeing you on August 6, 2011. Even if you cannot attend, please pray. You may also go to www.theresponseusa.com for more information.
