 National Call to Repentance Carter Conlon

Does anyone have a transcript of Carter Conlon's words and prayer at TSQ on Sunday June 29? At about the 30-45 minute mark he joins about two million other believers who humbled themselves to pray for the nation at that time. Very moving. Among other things he called for no more finger pointing; "the blame," he said, "belongs in the house of God."

 Re: National Call to Repentance Carter Conlon

On June 29, the "Call To Fall" prayer
initiative took place, in which churches and
Christians all over the nation had a time of
repentance for our own sins, and the sins of
our nation, praying that God would have
mercy on us and forgive our sins, and heal
our land.

The whole prayer initiative was based on
(2 Chronicles 7:14) "If my people that are
called by my name will humble themselves
and pray, and seek my face, and turn from
their wicked ways, then I will hear from
Heaven and forgive their sin and heal their
land."

God' s promises are true, but they are also
conditional.

Mike

 Re:

The following is a transcript of Carter Conlon's remarks and prayer during the Sunday June 29th Times Square Church service. The prayer was part of a U.S. national initiative calling all churches to pray for that nation.
After reading Psalm Two, Carter Conlon said that it was a psalm that talked about times when leaders get together to cast off God's restraint. Conlon then continued:

This morning we have the privilege as a church congregation of joining with two million other believers across the country... who at this moment or thereabouts are going to fall to their knees... and say, Lord God, heal our land. Lord, do what we have not done; forgive us for how we have misrepresented you. The Scripture says that "When there is no vision the people perish." And that means that when there is no demonstration of the power of God, when there is no visible manifestation of who Christ really is, society throws off its moral restraints, and that's what we see happening in our day. We can point our finger, we can blame government leaders, and we can try to blame various elements of our society, but really the blame belongs in the house of God. It belongs in the pulpits of the churches across this nation. Where we have turned, and focused on ourselves, and have not preached the cross of Christ, we've not fully embraced the power of prayer, nor allowed God to make us a visible testimony of who he really is to this generation.

But I want to remind you that even though judgment seems to be abounding in every corner of our nation, mercy still rejoices over judgment. I believe that with all my heart. Now I want you to picture in your mind that perhaps for the first time since this country was formed, people from all across the nation are going to be falling to their knees in the house of God for about five minutes and asking the Lord to have mercy on us, and come and do what we have failed to do, and heal our land and let the testimony of Christ abound one more time. Give us a spiritual awakening in our generation. It doesn't mean that all things are going to carry on as they have in the past. It's not about saving sand castles and retirement accounts. It's about people. Christ died for people. And I thank God that we have the privilege of prayer this morning.... we're going to pray with believers from all across this nation, and we're going to ask God to do what we have failed to do, and I want to remind you that God is a God of mercy. Remember in the Scriptures that Daniel saw the power of God's mercy in the Scriptures, he saw it written, and he opened his window and began to pray toward Jerusalem, and he said, "Lord, we have sinned." He had not been among those who had been responsible for the captivity, nevertheless he didn't exclude himself in his prayer: "We have sinned." As a testimony of God, we have fallen greatly short of what we ought to have been. We took the blessing of God and began to worship it, we built a golden calf in the house of God, created our own Christ that we could carry on our shoulders and point in any direction that we wanted Him to go, and subsequently the nation looked at us, and laughed, and cast us out as salt to be trodden under the feet of men. Though we have churches on every corner throughout the cities and towns in this nation, we have failed to represent Jesus to this generation. God, give us the grace to walk humbly now before you. Give us the grace to put away all finger pointing. Give us the grace to look within, and say, Jesus, we call on you one more time to do what only you can do in this country....

God Almighty, everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, Lord, you are the only Creator, beside You there is no other God, and Lord, we gather together today to pray with brothers and sisters of all denominations throughout this nation. And we realize the perilous times we are now living in, where evil is becoming good and good is becoming evil. We are living on the precipice of a social, political, and moral, and financial collapse. We have rightly judged ourselves, God, we have rightly brought ourselves into these rough waters, because we have ignored Your word; we have ignored Your warnings; even in the house of God we have crafted our own Christ; God, forgive us for this abominable evil; forgive us, Lord, forgive the pastors of this nation, for what we have done, standing in pulpits and not preaching a Christ that people can lay hold of. Lord Jesus Christ, we ask you, God, for a season of mercy, we ask for a spiritual awakening in this land, we ask You Father, in Jesus Name, to touch our hearts, touch our homes, God, touch our churches. Lord, you are the God in the book of Ezekiel who breathed on bones and brought them back to life, even though they died around the altars of their own making. You showed how merciful You can be. Oh God, You are the one who stood before the grave of someone you loved who had been dead for four days, and You called him back to life again. So this is Who we cry out to this day, Lord. You are able to breathe on us again, You are able to call to us again and bring us back to life.

I pray, God, forgive us our ignorance, bring us back together as a body all over this nation, bring us back together in prayer, singleness of purpose, bring us back to the Scriptures again, help us to cast off the gods of our own making. Oh Jesus Christ, we ask You, Lord, for a season of mercy in this nation, we ask You for a time, God, such as You gave the apostle Paul in the book of Acts Chapter 27, when men and women had an opportunity to hear who You were one more time. God, give this generation an opportunity to hear about You. Turn back the flood of evil, turn it back, O God, Your word says that He who sits in the Heavens shall laugh, and vex them in His sore displeasure and have them in derision. God Almighty, we ask You, God, to blind those who are trying to drag this nation into a moral abyss, and we ask You, Lord, to open the eyes of this generation, open the eyes of the people of God, open our eyes to who You are, and what You desire to do, Your ability, God, to move Heaven and earth as we begin to pray. You Yourself said that if My people will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked way, I will hear from Heaven, forgive their sin, and I will heal their land. Now, My eyes shall be open, My ears listening, for the prayers that are going to be prayed in this place.

And so Lord God, we are asking not for ourselves, but we are asking for others, we are asking for a great turning of our young people who in our schools and colleges have been lied to and told there is no God. Lord, we've allowed the enemy to build fortifications around all of our institutions, and God Almighty, we ask You to bring these walls down, for David the king said, By God I have leaped through a troop, by God I have leaped over a wall, by God my arms have been strengthened so that a bow of steel is broken by them. Oh Jesus Christ, Son of God, give us power, give us strength for this last moment of time. Let our praises truly be birthed in God, let the word of God be preached again in the house of God. Oh Jesus, Lord, we ask for mercy, Lord, for all of our pastors across this land in every denomination. Lord, those who are still alive, cause them to be encouraged, those who barely have a flicker, breathe on them, bring them back to life again, those who are dead, call them, raise them out of the grave, but oh God, let every man and woman of God have a testimony, Lord, of the resurrection power and life of Jesus Christ. Bring the Cross back to the central focus of our theology; deliver us, Lord, from all of the foolishness that we have presented as being from You and Your kingdom and Your heart, and bring us back to that which really matters-- the shedding of Christ's blood, the power over sin and death, the resurrection life that belongs to everyone who turns to Christ for redemption.

God, we yield ourselves to this purpose, for New York City we ask that You would breathe on... this city, and bring it back to life; let there be a massive touch of God come into our streets, our boroughs, our homes, our colleges, O God, let even our park benches become places of prayer meetings. God, stop all the commerce, let men and women begin to turn to You with all of their hearts. Father, be merciful, O God, to those who parade their sin in our streets, be merciful, God, to those who do these things, we're asking, Lord, for mercy, we're asking for salvation, we're asking, God, for a true joy, a true peace, and true life. Father, we're asking for these things, we praise You, and we bless You in the mighty unmatchable Name of Jesus Christ, King of kings, and Lord of lords, in His precious name we pray, Amen, and Amen. Thank You, Hallelujah, thank You Lord, thank You, mighty God.

 Re:

This is a tremendous prayer. May the Lord hear the prayers of His people. Only one thing I would change about this part of the prayer........

"I pray, God, forgive us our ignorance, bring us back together as a body all over this nation, bring us back together in prayer, singleness of purpose, bring us back to the Scriptures again, help us to cast off the gods of our own making."

We have never been together as a Body, this is the genesis of our sin and sickness and a main reason for our lack of power and testimony before this nation and the nations. Singleness of purpose lies ahead of us when we lay down our divisions and stand in unity. This will be the fulfillment of the prophecy of the Lord in John 17. It will surely come to pass and what a privilege it would be if we were the generation to witness and be part of this.........bro Frank

 Re:

That is right, Frank, at least not in any comprehensive way, but at the same time I bear witness, as you yourself do, that this is "a tremendous prayer." Perhaps none of us realizes the full extent of what God has in mind to do in this hour, and when He answers the heartfelt cries it could well be utterly devastating to us. Even so, Lord Jesus, hear our cry!

 Re:

We pray that our hearts would be broken with that which breaks the heart of God. May we draw close to the Lord, and may the spirit of intercession and travail come upon God's people.

I yearn for this, too, Mike, and we must continue to pray for this.

"Likewise the Spirit also helpeth (that is, joins Himself to) our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought; but the Spirit Himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God."
