Our Response to The Response
The Response solemn assembly was a great experience to be a part of. Christians of different denominations, races, and ages gathered together under one name; Christ Jesus. The passage of the day was Joel 2, and the focus was on prayer, worship, and repentance on behalf of the USA. Governor Perry made an appearance during the assembly and prayed for the nation.
“Lord, you are the source of every good thing. You are our only hope and we stand before you today in awe of your power and in gratitude for your blessings and humility for our sins. Father our heart breaks for America. We see discord at home. We see fear in the marketplace. We see anger in the halls of government, and as a nation, we have forgotten who made us, who protects us, blesses us and for that we cry out for your forgiveness.
We pray for our nation and its leaders lord, for parents, for pastors, for generals, for governors, that you would inspire them in difficult times We pray for our president that you would impart your wisdom upon him that you would guard his family. We pray for our military… especially for those special operators who lost their life yesterday defending our freedoms.
You call us to repent Lord, and this day is our response. We give it all to you for thine is the kingdom and power and glory forever, amen and amen.”
