40 DAYS to SAVE AMERICA Honored to Partner with America for Jesus
40 DAYS TO SAVE AMERICA (September 28-November 6) is honored to participate in the America for Jesus Rally. As the chairman of the Board of Governors for 40 Days and a Board Member for AFJ 2012, I am humbled to address the rally and lead in a season of prayer.
In what could be the most momentous election of our lifetime, everyone wants to know, “Who will lead America for the next 4 years?” The answer should be obvious: He who has led us for the past 236 years of our national existence. The Lord God Almighty!
The vast majority of people in America realizes and acknowledges that America is off track…that something is dreadfully wrong and that no one but God can save her. That’s why many have concluded that nothing short of a National Awakening will do, hence, a call for prayer, fasting and action.
Choosing a president, members of Congress and governors is a sobering responsibility, especially given the multiple crises our nation confronts. These men and women wield enormous power over the citizenry. They can confront the forces of evil that stalk us domestically and internationally or ignore them. Our moral free-fall can continue, or they can call America back to its founding principles.
But it’s God who shapes our destiny – as individuals and as a nation. The people who lose sight of that – as so many Americans have – are in mortal danger. Has not God said that He will hide His face from those who spurn Him?
That He will lead America is certain. Where He leads America depends on us.
Our failure to acknowledge His sovereignty, to beg His forgiveness and to humbly seek His guidance is responsible for America’s plight.
Who wins the coming election is important. But even the most favorable outcome imaginable will be only a temporal victory.
The day after the election, we’ll still be a nation that’s morally and fiscally bankrupt, a nation that grows more distant from its Christian roots each year, and a nation whose leaders arrogantly refuse to acknowledge dependency on God for His guidance and security.
40 DAYS TO SAVE AMERICA begins with this momentous event in Philadelphia, the city where it all began. From now until Election Day (September 28 to November 6) we are calling on men and women of faith to pray and fast for a Third Great Awakening. 40 Days to Save America is based on the firm conviction that whatever else we do in this momentous year – and we all have a duty to do all we can – the place to begin is by asking God’s forgiveness for our national and individual transgressions, and for His guidance in the essential task of choosing our leaders and renewing our nation.
Our National Board of Governors includes such committed Christian leaders as: Bishop Anne Gimenez (Rock Church International), Tim Wildmon, (American Family Association), Tony Perkins (Family Research Council), Penny Nance (Concerned Women for America), Dr. Jim Garlow (Renewing American Leadership), Bishop Harry Jackson (the Hope Connection), Samuel Rodriguez (National Christian Leadership Conference), Fr. Frank Pavone (Priests for Life), Mat Staver (Liberty Council), Kelly Shackelford (Liberty Institute), General Jerry Boykin (Kingdom Warriors), Dave Butts, (National Day of Prayer), David Bereit (40 Days for Life), and Pastor Robert Jeffress (First Baptist Church of Dallas).
We are calling on pastors, priests and rabbis to open houses of worship across America for special services dedicated to seeking the nation’s salvation through another Great Awakening, and for every one of you to set aside time daily from now until Election Day, to pray and seek God for His hand of blessing upon our nation.
We hope these 40 days will be a time for all of us to rededicate our lives to God, and to make informed choices at the polls, in full awareness of our responsibilities of citizenship and our duty as Christians.
On November 6, we will choose a president and other elected officials. We already have a leader; the Lord God Almighty! America’s survival depends on our acknowledgement of that reality as a nation.
Yours for Revival!
Rick Scarborough, President of Vision America
