You have to be impressed by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s strategic political acumen. In choosing a presidential candidate to emulate from 2012, he chose Rick Perry. Like Perry, he’s launching his 2016 presidential campaign with a prayer rally. In fact, it’s the same prayer rally by the same name, led by the same people.
We believe that America is in a state of crisis. Not just politically, financially, or morally, but because we are a nation that has not honored God in our successes or humbly called on Him in our struggles. The Response: Louisiana is committed to prayer above politics, to seeing the church moved to stand for righteousness, and to pray for God’s mercy for America.
According to the Bible, the answer to a nation in such crisis is to gather in humility and repentance and ask God to intervene. The Response will be another historic gathering of people from across the nation to pray and fast for America.
