Solemn Assembly in Philadelphia to Focus on America for Jesus
The United States is in a state of spiritual emergency, and there is only one answer: Jesus. That is the reason for the call for a solemn assembly in Philadelphia, PA, on September 28-29, 2012, at Independence Hall.
Leaders of America for Jesus are calling upon Christians to return to Philadelphia, the site where the declaration of Independence was signed, and where the Constitution of the United States was debated and ratified after much prayer. It is also the city that hosted the writing of the Bill of Rights. And in 1751, the Pennsylvania General Assembly commissioned a foundry in England to forge a bell to honor William Penn, a Quaker who founded the Pennsylvania government based on principles of liberty and equality. The Liberty Bell is inscribed, “Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto the inhabitants thereof” (Lev. 25:10).
Leadership includes Anne Gimenez, John Blanchard, Billy Wilson, Cindy Jacobs, Lou Engle, Ron Luce, Jane Hansen, and Samuel Rodriguez. Those leading in prayer will focus on humility and repentance based on 2 Chronicles 7:14.
The gathering also features an “Awakening Youth Rally” on Independence Mall on the evening of September 28. Youth and young adults will join for prayer, worship, and teaching—taking a stand with their generation to pursue the presence of Christ for the nation.
