Americans flock to nation's capital to discover true leadership
© 2010 WorldNetDaily
While the nation is riddled with soaring debt, government expansion, abortion, declining morality and a raging culture war, Christian and Jewish leaders are urging Americans to stop shaking their fists at their television sets and come seek the real solution to today's moral crisis by calling out to God from the nation's capital.
"May Day: a Cry to God for Our Nation in Distress" will take place May 1 from sunrise to 2 p.m. at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
They will all gather for one purpose: repentance.
The group will repent for how the nation has turned from God in every area of influence: 1) business 2) government, 3) media, 4) arts and entertainment, 5) education, 6) the family and 7) religion.
"We're headed for a cliff," explained WND
columnist and Faith2Action President Janet Porter, a coordinator of
May Day. "Short of calling Congress and waiting for November, this is
what to do: Fast and pray for our country in distress. On May Day, the
national distress call, we won't be aiming our message at the Washington
elite nor at media activists. It's aimed at God."
Porter called on Christians to take part in a 40-day fast prior to the event. She said participants will give up something important to them in the days leading up to May Day.
"We just want God to know we're serious about standing in the gap
for America," she said. "We are calling the remnant to come and repent.
It's a two-fold plan to not only pray but to proclaim what our founders
believed – that we are one nation under God."
Vision America President Dr. Rick Scarborough added, "We need to
let God know we're serious about turning back to Him and fasting from
something – whether it's television, dessert or food – will provide the
breakthrough we desperately need as a nation."
