Friends, if you haven't already, please sign up to receive the prayer points for The Response by email (link below). If you haven't registered for the event itself, make sure you do that first. Below is an example of what you will receive by email which outlines prayer needs:
Dear Prayer Force Partner,
Welcome and Thank you for responding to this historic call from God to His Church! In preparing for the August 6th Joel 2 Response we realized that how we respond today will have a direct effect on God's response to our corporate gathering in August. By signing up to be part of the Prayer Force you are joining thousands around the world who believe that as we humble ourselves, pray, seek God's face and choose to turn from our sins, God will hear and perhaps He will heal our land and leave a blessing (2 Chronicles 7:14, Joel 2:14).
The model of prayer we are offering comes out of Joel 2 which is the primary text the Lord used in communicating this national Response. Joel 2 tells us to come, to turn back to Him, to fast, to repent, to pray, to remember His Word, to do his instructions and to worship Him, so that He might answer us and leave a blessing behind!
This prayer template will guide you in your prayer leading up to August 6th. Although we will not be physically together before August 6th we believe that the prayer of unity will bless God's heart and draw His attention! As you pray you add your voice to thousands across the nation and on every continent.
