Urgent prayer request from Anne Graham Lotz

Here is a letter that I received today by email from Anne Graham-Lotz, Billy Graham's daughter. It is a time sensitive letter and an urgent call to prayer. Carol

Blow the trumpet...sound the alarm...for the day of the Lord is coming.  It is close at hand-- Rend your heart and not your garments.
Return to the Lord your God...
Joel 2:1, 13  

As you may know, my husband is in declining health. I am no
longer traveling and speaking as much as I have for the last
26 years since I am staying home to care for him.  As a
result, I have had time to be quiet and listen more to the
whispers of the Spirit. He has revealed things to me in the
stillness that I'm not sure I would have heard in my
former busyness.

One of the things He has impressed on me is that we are
living at the end of human history as we know it. In light
of this, He has given me some practical assignments. One was
to be the Honorary Chair for the National Day of Prayer 2014
this past May. He gave me the message I was to deliver,
which was from Joel 1...the Day of the Lord is at hand. It
was a message warning that judgment is

Just recently, He has given me another assignment, which is
to call His people in our nation to prayer. This assignment
came indirectly from a Syrian pastor through a National Day
of Prayer attendee. In obedience, I am blowing the
trumpet...sounding the alarm...issuing a national prayer
initiative entitled 7 7 7: An Urgent Call to Prayer. 
The Call is for God's people to pray for each of
the first seven days in the seventh month-July 1-7. Then on
the 7th day, July 7, we are to pray and fast for 7 hours.

The purpose is... For God the Father to restrain, protect, and
deliver His people from the evil that has come into our
world. For God the Son to be exalted, magnified, and glorified in His church, in our nation, and in our lives. For God the Holy Spirit to fall on us in a fresh way, compelling the church to repent of sin and our nation to return to faith in the living God, resulting in a great national spiritual awakening.I'm asking you to
partner with me, and send out the word to everyone on your
email address list, or who follows you on facebook or
twitter. I will be sending out an eBlast this week and next, which you can access at http://www.annegrahamlotz.com/events/urgent-call-to-prayer/.
Please feel free to use it, and place your name in the
paragraph that includes mine to make it more personal for
your constituents. Feel free also to forward this

I will provide a prayer I have written for each of the 7
days to help unite us in one spirit and one voice as we cry
out to God. Those who receive the eBlast are invited to sign
up for the daily email prayers. Please be assured there is
no other agenda in this initiative. This is not about
promoting anything or anyone.  This is all about
calling God's people together to pray, before it's
too late, and judgment falls on our nation.
