Urgent Call to Prayer - Anne Graham Lotz (Prayer Summer 2014)

Prayer Summer 2014 - sorry for inundating you with prayer things today, but Sharon M. sent me this and I'm posting it.

As you may know, my husband is in declining health. I am no longer traveling and speaking as much as I have for the last 26 years since I am staying home to care for him. As a result, I have had time to be quiet and listen more to the whispers of the Spirit. He has revealed things to me in the stillness that I'm not
sure I would have heard in my former busyness.
One of the things He has impressed on me is that we are living at the end of human history as we know it. In light of this, He has given me some practical assignments. One was to be the Honorary Chair for the National Day of Prayer 2014 this past May. He gave me the message I was to deliver, which was from
Joel 1...the Day of the Lord is at hand. It was a message warning that judgment
 is coming.
Just recently, He has given me another assignment, which is to call His people in
our nation to praye
r … In obedience, I am blowing the trumpet ... sounding the alarm ... issuing a national prayer initiative entitled 7 7 7: An Urgent Call to Prayer.

The Call is for God's people to pray for each of the first seven days in the seventh
month-July 1-7. Then on the 7th day, July 7, we are to pray and fast for 7 hours

Urgent Call to Prayer

Blow the trumpet…sound the alarm…for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand– Rend your heart and not your garments.  Return to the Lord your God…    ~Joel 2:1, 13
Join Anne Graham Lotz and thousands of other followers of Jesus Christ across our nation and around the world, as together we return to the Lord our God, rend our hearts, repent of our sin, and cry out to God for His mercy on behalf of our nation.  Before it’s too late.
Pray! in the 7th month, July
Pray! on each of the first 7 days of July
Pray! and fast on July 7th for 7 hours (of your choosing)
The Purpose:
  • For God the Father to restrain, protect, and deliver His people from the evil that has come into our world.
  • For God the Son to be exalted, magnified, and glorified in His church, in our nation, and in our lives.
  • For God the Holy Spirit to fall on us in a fresh way, compelling the church to repent of sin and our nation to return to faith in the living God, resulting in a great national spiritual awakening.
