With key support from prayer teams in Australia and other nations many Christians in America will take time Thursday, April 30, 2015 to be with the Lord in their prayer closets and churches to observe a vitally important National Day of Repentance.
This will be a national and international grassroots event with two goals.
Honoring George Washington's godly inauguration on April 30, 1789. One goal is to have at least 1,789 churches in America hold a repentance service on April 30 or on one of the next six days leading up to the National Day of Prayer on May 7.
Repentance—turning away from our sinful ways back to God—opens the heavens so that the Lord, following 2 Chronicles 7:14 will "hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land." The acute problems in this and other nations are beyond politics. We are in a spiritual battle for the destiny of this nation. The spiritual solution, known to the founders of this nation, is to have the battle become the Lord's through the sincere repentance of His people called by His name.
The repentance services will be unique to each church and will provide times of prayer and repentance for personal and national sins. God willing, thousands will take a stand against apathy, cowardice, fear, pride, worldliness, sexual sins, the threat of redefining marriage despite Jesus' clear definition, idolatry, apostasy, breaking of our godly covenant including not standing with Israel, moral decay, the shedding of innocent blood and loss of religious liberty.
Additionally, as a second goal, thousands more in many nations in the body of Christ will participate on April 30 in an international "sacred assembly." For five minutes on April 30 at 7 PM EST, 4 PM PST, 9 AM May 1 in Canberra, Australia, thousands in their time zone led by the Holy Spirit will join in a simple prayer for the godly roots of the United States to be restored. The suggested prayer will be posted at dayofrepentance.org and will be published on websites such as the The Elijah List and Breaking Christian News (elijahlist.com).
In keeping with the Washington theme, intercessors from the State of Washington are already inaugurating the April 30 grassroots event, networking across the 50 states to reach pastors and priests to hold the 1,789 repentance services on April 30.
