America for Jesus 2012

Because prayer changes things and because America is in a state of emergency, One Nation Under God, a coalition of ministries that organized Washington for Jesus in the 1980’s and 90’s – which drew hundreds of thousands of Christians to Washington, D.C., to pray for America – will announce a national call to prayer. The America for Jesus 2012 event will unite Christians of all races, parties, and denominations to pray in Philadelphia for the healing of America 40 days before the nation casts its vote for President. Further details will be announced at the NRB 2012 press conference.
