The 9/11 Day of Prayer & Repentance is a movement that began in April as an editorial column at WND.com by WND CEO Joseph Farah. The response to the column was immediate and overwhelming, as thousands of readers expressed support and the desire to be involved in some way.
Encouraged by the outpouring, Farah noted: “When America was founded 237 years ago, fellow believers fought to establish and protect the role of God in the fabric of our country. We are a nation originally built on and by prayer. Today, as Christians, we can look around and readily see that our beloved homeland is tragically broken and our culture is breaking down and dramatically moving away from God. Those of us who understand the challenges we face for the very survival of America as we have known it, as one nation under God, must start planning now to do something radical.”
That something is the 2013 nationwide day of prayer and repentance.
Regarding Crabb accepting the appointment to the committee, Farah had this to say: “Jason Crabb is a young American who authentically embodies the principals on which the day is based--a consistent passion for keeping God in the center of our daily agenda and for encouraging others through both his witness and example to follow God in prayer and action. We’re extremely honored with his willingness to participate.”
“I’m honored to be involved with the 9/11 day of prayer and repentance," shared Jason. "I firmly believe that America’s only shining hope is a return to God in the midst of these dark times. I pray this event will help encourage individuals and churches alike to take the time to honor God next week in the observance of the September 11 anniversary.”
