Louisiana Governor Calls for Prayer
On January 24, 2015, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will host a major event called “The Response-Louisiana: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis.” More than 100,000 evangelical pastors are being invited by American Renewal Project leader David Lane to gather at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge, LA.
In addition, Lane is encouraging the pastors to pray about running for political office. He believes that if more pastors get involved in the political process, it will change the moral direction of this country. He writes in an email, “We are asking 63,000 evangelical pastors to begin praying to discern if God is calling you to run for political office in 2016. . . . A thousand pastors running in 2016—and three to four hundred pastors winning their political races—would ignite a spiritual movement in the public arena of America not seen since America’s Founding.”
Besides Governor Jindal, other prominent attendees at The Response-Louisiana will include Oklahoma Senator-elect James Lankford, former congressman J.C. Watts, Pastor Rob McCoy (who recently ran and narrowly lost a seat in the California State Assembly), and Dr. Bruce K. Waltke, Old Testament scholar and professor emeritus of Biblical Studies, Regent College.
