"Call to Fall"
On Sunday, July 3, we will join in a nationwide prayer movement for spiritual healing for our souls and our land. "Call to Fall" is a recognition that the change we need begins with God’s people praying to Him. On that date believers in thousands of churches in all 50 states will spend at least 5 minutes on their knees in prayer for our nation. Resources and answers to questions can be found on the website linked above, and on the Facebook page. The Family Research Council has been instrumental in organizing this day of petition.
