Cry out America

CRY OUT AMERICA:  SUNDAY, 9/11/2016

Across Amer­i­ca church­es are encour­aged to use this day to tru­ly cry out to God in Solemn Assem­bly, a day of hum­bling our­selves, repent­ing and cry­ing out to God for mer­cy. Solemn Assem­blies were called in bib­li­cal times when things were not going well in the nation.  Joel 2 verse 15 blows the trum­pet in Zion; con­se­crate a fast; call a solemn assem­bly; gath­er the peo­ple. Con­se­crate the congregation.  This was done when the lead­ers sensed they were in trou­ble and might be under the discipline/judgement of God. In our life time we have nev­er seen a time like this in Amer­i­ca. Now is a time for lead­ers to call the peo­ple togeth­er in humil­i­ty and cry­ing out to God for mer­cy. Sep­tem­ber 11 gives us an occa­sion to do that.  For the last 2 years we have done this at the South­ern Bap­tist Con­ven­tion. For more infor­ma­tion and guide­lines for a Solemn Assem­bly you can go to awakeningamerica.us. Claude King has info on this as well as Fresh Encounter by Hen­ry Black­a­by. What would it be like if all of Geor­gia cried out to God togeth­er?
