IN PHILADELPHIA, ONE WEEK

FROM TODAY, THOUSANDS OF

CHRISTIANS WILL BE GATHERING

ON INDEPENDENCE MALL, FOR A

NATIONAL CALL OF PRAYER FOR

JESUS, 2012.

HERE TO TELL US MORE ARE MY

DEAR FRIENDS, AND ANN AND

JOHN.

THANK YOU.

IT'S A BLESSING TO BE

HERE, GORDON, THANK YOU.

Gordon: YOU HAVE A

WHOLE CAREER OF MAKING

NATIONAL CALLS TO PRAYER.

MY HUSBAND DID.

"WASHINGTON FOR JESUS."

Gordon: "WASHINGTON FOR

JESUS" IN 1980 I THINK

CHANGED THE WORLD.

YES, IT DID, AND I THINK

WE'RE IN A MORE DESPERATE

TIME THAN IN 1980.

THAT BELL, A REPLICA OF IT,

IS GOING TO RING OUT.

IT WILL BE ON THE MALL IN

PHILADELPHIA.

Gordon: WHY RIGHT NOW?

WHAT DO YOU SEE THAT WE AS

CHRISTIANS NEED TO DO IN

ORDER TO TURN AMERICA

AROUND.

GORDON, AMERICA IS IN

TROUBLE, AND EVERYBODY KNOWS

THAT.

WE'RE NOT DEMOCRATS, REAR

NOT REPUBLICANS, WE'RE

CHRISTIANS.

ONLY GOD CAN SAVE OUR

NATION.

WE CAN'T PUT OUR HOPE IN A

MAN.

OUR TRUST IS IN GOD, 2

CHRONICLES 7: 14 "MY

PEOPLE."

GIDEON, GOD TRIMMED HIM DOWN

TO 300.

AND HE SAID NOW I CAN DO

SOMETHING BECAUSE NOW I'LL

GET THE GLORY.

I BELIEVE EVERYTHING THAT

HAS HAPPENED, EVEN OF

RECENT, IS BECAUSE WHAT GOD

DOES, GOD WILL GET THE GLORY

IN AMERICA.

ONLY GOD CAN SAVE US NOW.

WE'RE GOING TO COME, REPENT

FROM OUR SINS, AND WE'RE

GOING TO PRAY.

AND HE SAID, "I'LL HEAL YOUR

LAND."

Gordon: I HAVE NOTICED,

PARTICULARLY SINCE THE

TERROR ATTACKS OF 2001, THAT

WE TEND TO LOOK AT OUR

MILITARY, WE TEND TO LOOK AT

OUR ECONOMY, WE TEND TO LOOK

AT ALL OF THE FREEDOMS THAT

WE, OUR DEMOCRACY, AND IT

SEEMS LIKE EVERYTHING IS NOT

WORKING AS PLANNED.

YES.

Gordon: THAT OUR

MILITARY DOESN'T SEEM TO BE

ABLE TO EFFECTIVELY DEAL

WITH THE THREAT OF TERRORISM

BECAUSE THEY CAN SLIDE UNDER

THE RADAR AND ATTACK IN YOUR

SAFE HOUSES IN LIBYA.

THESE THINGS JUST SEEM TO BE

UNCONTROLLABLE.

YES.

Gordon: I GO BACK TO

THAT WONDERFUL PSALM,

"UNLESS THE LORD WATCHES,

THE WATCHMEN WATCH IN

VAIN."

AND WE NEED GOD WATCHING OUT

FOR US.

AMEN.

THE PROBLEM, WE BELIEVE,

IN AMERICA IS A SPIRITUAL

WON.

ECONOMICS IS NOT GOING TO

SOLVE IT.

IF WE PRAY AND SEEK GOD, I

BELIEVE THAT PRAYER CHANGES

THINGS.

I BELIEVE THAT THIS CALL TO

PRAYER IN PHILADELPHIA HAS

THE POTENTIAL TO TRANSFORM

THE NATION, TO BE A SPARK

FOR REVIVAL IN THE CHURCH

AND BRING AN AWAKENING IN

THE NATION.

WE NEED AMERICA TO TURN BACK

TO GOD.

Gordon: YOU'RE DOING

MORE THAN JUST PRAYING.

THIS WEEKEND YOU DID AN

OUTREACH INTO THE CITY OF

PHILADELPHIA.

IT WAS AMAZING.

AND THANK GOD FOR "OPERATION

BLESSING" AND MANY OTHER

ORGANIZATIONS WHO CAME

TOGETHER.

BUT OVER 15,000 PEOPLE WERE

FED WITH 1500 VOLUNTEERS

COMING TOGETHER ON A

SATURDAY.

IT WAS THE 15th, THIS LAST

WEEK, AND GOD JUST REALLY

BLESSED.

AND HUNDREDS CAME TO CHRIST

AS A RESULT.

THERE WERE EIGHT OUTREACH

CENTERS OVER GREATER

PHILADELPHIA.

IT WAS THE BIGGEST OUTREACH

I'VE EVER BEEN A PART OF,

AND "OPERATION BLESSING" WAS

A GREAT PART OF IT BY

SUPPLYING A LOT OF OUR

SUPPLIES THAT CAME IN.

Gordon: WHEN DOES THE

PRAYER MEETING START?

IT STARTS NEXT FRIDAY,

SEPTEMBER 28th, ON THE

MALL, INDEPENDENCE MALL,

WHERE THE LIBERTY BELL IS.

THAT'S GOING TO BE A BIG

YOUTH RALLY.

WE WANT EVERYBODY TO COME

AND BRING THEIR YOUTH GROUPS

OUT.

AND RON LOSE, WITH TEEN

MAÑANA, AND LOU ENGEL, WITH

THE CALL ARE HEADING IT UP.

AND THEN SATURDAY MORNING,

SEPTEMBER 29th, FROM THE

RISING OF THE SUN TO GOING

DOWN, WE'RE GOING TO BE ON

THAT MALL, HUMBLING

OURSELVES AND PRAYING.

GORDON, IT'S IN THE EVENING

THAT WE'RE GOING TO

REESTABLISH AND MAKE

COVENANT WITH GOD.

WE WANT TO COME BACK AND

CALL AMERICA BACK INTO ITS

COVENANT.

AMERICA'S BROKEN COVENANT.

WE WORSHIPPED OTHER GODS IN

AMERICA.

AND WE WANT AMERICA TO BE

HEALED AND COME BACK TO

GOD.

Gordon: IT IS

SIGNIFICANT, PHILADELPHIA.

AND THIS IS WHERE THE

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

WAS DRAFTED.

THIS IS WHERE THE BILL OF

RIGHTS AND THE CONSTITUTION

AND OUR FOUNDING DOCUMENTS

WERE MADE.

AND, GORDON, WE'RE GOING

RIGHT INTO THE TIME.

JOHN THAN KAHN TOLD ME -- I

SAID WHAT'S THE SIGNIFICANCE

OF THE DATE.

HE SAID YOU'RE GOING AFTER

ROSH HASHANAH, YOM KIPPUR,

AND AFTER SOLOMON DEDICATED

THE TEMPLE, WHEN GOD SPOKE

TO HIM, 2 CHRONICLES, "IF MY

PEOPLE" -- AND THAT'S RIGHT

WHERE WE'RE GOING, THIS IS

THE HOLY WEEK.

WE'RE GOING RIGHT IN THERE

AT THE SEASON THAT GOD GAVE

HIM THE PROMISE, "IF MY

PEOPLE."

Gordon: IF YOU WANT TO

ATTEND, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS LOG ON TO cbn.com, AND

WE'LL GET YOU THE SCHEDULE.

WE'LL LET YOU KNOW HOW YOU

CAN BE A PART OF THIS GREAT

PRAYER MEETING.

ANN'S LATEST BOOK IS CALLED

"RESURRECTION, LIFE NOW."

IT'S ALL ABOUT HER

EXPERIENCE.

I'M A PURE MIRACLE.

I SHOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD TWO

YEARS AGO, BURIED BESIDE MY

HUSBAND.

THE DOCTOR SAID THERE IS NO

CHANCE I COULD LIVE.

BUT I DID.

Gordon: GOD STILL HAD A

PLAN.

GOD STILL HAD A PLAN.

Gordon: HE WANTED YOU

TO ORGA ORGANIZE THE NATION

TO PRAYER.

ABSOLUTELY.
