11-11-11 Prayer Tonight

The Gathering will be meeting for prayer tonight at 6:00 on this historic date of 11-11-11.  We are meeting to coincide with The Call Detroit, a 24 hour solemn assembly, meeting at Ford Field beginning at 6:00 p.m. tonight until 6:00 p.m. tomorrow night.  Here is the purpose of The Call--and our prayer time--quoted from their website:

TheCall Detroit 11.11.11
On November 11–12, 2011, thousands from across America will gather to Ford Field (Home of the Detroit Lions) to fast, pray and cry out to God. We will gather to this city that has become a microcosm of our national crisis—economic collapse, racial tension, and the shedding of innocent blood of our children in the streets and of our unborn.
But the place where they say there is no hope, God has chosen as His staging ground for a great communal healing and His house of prayer for all nations. Therefore, we are calling the nation to a 24-hour solemn assembly, daring to believe that Detroit’s desperation can produce a prayer that can change a nation.
Come and take your place on the wall in Detroit, where we will ask God to send fire on our hearts, to forgive our national guilt and establish justice in our land.

      Since we are unable to go to Detroit for this meeting we will be joining our hearts and spirits with them tonight at our house to pray for revival in this land.  I feel this is an extremely important meeting.  God answers prayer.  He says in II Chronicles 7:14, "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 
     I believe we are at a crucial time in our nation when we must we take God at His Word and seriously pray for our country.  If you are feeling that also, please come.  We are planning to worship and pray a couple of hours unless the Lord leads otherwise.
