40 Days Facedown - Area Churches Uniting in Prayer for the Nation (9/24+)

A city-wide steering team representing a cross-section of the Christian community has formed to help mobilize prayer for the nation leading up to the 2008 elections. Please see the following opportunity to join with others in the valley for 40 days of prayer for the nation!

Greater Huntsville Facedown40!

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ:

Our nation is at a another crossroads in American History. There is a national effort - Facedown 40 - to mobilize the Body of Christ to enter into a unified commitment to Fast and Pray for 40 days, prior to the Presidential election.

In the Huntsville/Madison County area, the CHURCH is joining together in a corporate effort to cover these 40 days, Sept. 24-Nov. 2, 24/7, with prayer for our Nation.

This mission cannot be accomplished with a handful of participants. We need you and your congregation to commit to this CRITICAL SEASON OF PRAYER for our Nation. Please contact us about which one or more of the 40 designated days your church could pray. A calendar posted here will list the dates and the churches/prayer groups covering our nation on that day. All the Christian community is invited to participate. Any church that does not feel they can adequately cover 24 hours may want to link with 2 or 3 others to more efficiently cover their “watch”. Material to guide your time of prayer is available.

To register your Church as a participant AND to select your day(s) to provide prayer coverage, please contact Sammie Laster – H 830-2590, Cell – 683-3712 or e-mail at .

We praise Our Lord for the commitment of intercessors and prayer warriors in our city. Thank you for your prayerful consideration!

“Three times a year you are to
celebrate a festival to me.” (Ex 23:14)

Each of the Biblical festivals teaches
us something
important about Biblical history, the nation of Israel, and the life of Jesus

“And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God ... that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt.” (Lev 23:33-43)

"And thou shalt remember ... And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates." (Deut 16:12-14)

Bring a lawn chair and a sack dinner, bottled water will be provided.
