A Call to Forty Days of Prayer 

The United States is clearly a nation in trouble.  

A battered economy, political divisiveness, the culture wars, racial uneasiness, and a sidelined church, provide the dry tinder for an inflammatory national election in November of 2012. Many stake their hopes or fears on the outcome.

While believing in and encouraging the importance of exercising our right to vote, we also call the Christian Church in America to do that which is even more critical in these days...to pray! The seriousness of our day requires an intensity of prayer that is unprecedented.

Accordingly, we call for 40 days and nights of unrelenting intercession on behalf of our nation, immediately preceding the Nov.6th election.

Our focus in prayer is simple.

We are praying for:

1.     Revival in the Church-that another Great Awakening would sweep across America as the Lord’s people humble themselves in repentance and prayer. (2 Chron.7:14)

2)    The elections- that God would intervene. This is not a partisan or political effort but a plea to bring God into a process that desperately needs His wisdom and direction. (Isaiah 48:17)

3.     A standard of righteousness to be raised over this nation.(Proverbs 14:34)

This is a call, not from one ministry or organization, but from diverse leaders from across the spectrum of the U.S. Church. It is also not a call to a particular event. It is a pleading for all Christians to do something proactive and powerful in prayer for the 40 days leading up to our fall elections.  

As leaders in the Body of Christ, we commit ourselves to prayer during these days of decision regarding the future of our nation. Even more, we commit ourselves to mobilize  prayer in our spheres of influence, that every part of the Lord’s Church would join together in day and night prayer for the intervention of God on the part of our nation.

  • I'm going to do this... This is much needed !
  • You are so right, Ann. 

    When we come before God in prayer, and in true repentence, we will be heard by Him.  Prayer is the most powerful weapon God has given us, so PLEASE, I urge you all, to use it!

  • This topic states exactly where my heart is and where my efforts of prayer are being directed at this time.  The burden God has given me to pray for our nation is very real to me and I am sure being felt by every intercessor in America.  The three main prayer focuses are well stated and exactly what we as believers need to be praying in the days and weeks to come.  I urge as many of you as possible to take up your mantle of prayer and pray for our nation!  Remember, "If My people".........
