You are invited to join together with others in the Body of Christ in fasting and prayer to cry out for America to turn back to God and to experience a great awakening. This united time of fasting and prayer will take place from August 1st until September 11th. This year marks the 15th year since the 9/11 terrorist attacks and this is a call for Christians to band together to see our nation changed.
The current condition of America is alarming to many and we feel an urgent need to fast and pray together. We have tried everything else and it has not worked so now it is time for us as the Body of Christ to turn to God in fasting and prayer for our nation. Desperate situations call for desperate measures. We are facing a desperate situation and we must come together and seek God if we desire to see our nation change.
Here are 3 Ways you can join in with this critical initiative:
PRAY – Commit to pray for these 40 days for our nation. This can be done in the quietness of your home or you can gather with others from your church or small groups. This commitment is that you will pray at least 1 hour each day for 40 days for our nation.
FAST – Commit to fast for these 40 days as the Lord leads you. Some will fast from eating food, meats, sweets, TV and Entertainment. No matter what God leads you to do make a firm commitment to set aside the things of this world to allow God to purify your own life and to empower you in the place of prayer.
GATHER – Commit to come on Sunday September 11th to our 911 United in Prayer gathering. This will be a powerful time where we will gather together to pray for our nation and for each other. THE TIME AND LOCATION IS STILL TO BE DETERMINED. Please sign up below for updates.
My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
