ANDREW's NOTE:  I was very encouraged by this report out of
America this past week...

-extracts from AG News. 

A rising tide of concern is sweeping through the body of Christ as 
America drifts farther and farther away from its moral and biblical 
moorings. In response, prayer initiatives are budding in an attempt 
to call people across denominational and parachurch ministry lines 
to seek God's intervention...

"There is a very real sense that we are facing an unprecedented 
moral and spiritual decline in our nation," says John Maempa, 
director of the Office of Prayer and Spiritual Care. "Desperation is 
building among many within the church to call upon God in these 
very challenging days. Conditions today are bringing the Church 
together as never before. We are battling a common enemy, Satan;
addressing a common problem, sin; and presenting a common 
solution, salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord."

OneCry, a prayer initiative launched under the auspices of Life 
Action Ministries early this year, is mobilizing thousands of people 
across the United States to pray daily for a spiritual awakening 
that will revitalize the Church and transform the culture. Drafting 
a "declaration of national spiritual emergency," OneCry proclaims, 
"true revival is the only hope to reverse our spiritual recession and 
enable us once again to display the beauty of Jesus Christ and 
His gospel throughout the world."

For the past four years, Cry Out America, under the Awakening 
America Alliance, has urged believers to gather at county court-
houses to pray for God's intervention in America. Again this year, 
a call to pray is being issued for Sept. 11, 2012. Additionally, on 
Sept. 29, many people will gather in Philadelphia for the America 
for Jesus solemn assembly, an event that will be simulcast to 
churches across the nation. 

Dan Biser, a pastor shepherding two Southern Baptist churches 
in West Virginia, has long sensed a deep need to call together 
any who will come to "Broken Before the Throne" prayer gatherings. 
A call to churches across denominational lines has again been 
issued for July 14-20, 2012...

"We are to do what they did in the book of Acts, what they did in 
every occurrence of persecution, what they did in times of such 
evil-- they prayed!" says Biser. "They came together for they knew 
that there was no power left in their means and methods; there 
was no power in their organization; there was no power in their 
education; there was only the power of God."
