2) Individual intercessors are, of course welcome to come. They can send me an email directly.
3) We are asking the prayer team to arrive at 4:30 pm CT, so that they can get ahead of the traffic, beat the churchgoing crowd, have time to meet one another, get oriented, and get the prayer fires burning hot before the main event goes live and on the air, at 6:00PM CT. Plan to stay through the event, which will end at 7:30 PM CT (It airs live on the East Coast from 7 PM till 8:30 PM in). Worship will begin in the sanctuary before the event goes live at 5:30 PM CT.
4) We’re asking everybody to be praying over the event and the for this and to help get the word out through their prayer networks and churches. Those who cannot be with us in person pray at home and view the event via the Internet.
5) The event will take place at Grace Church 14505 Gulf Freeway Houston, TX 77034. This is a large church. The prayer room will be a nice room and we will have the benefit of a large screen on which we will be able to see the event to help guide us in our prayer.
|Prayer Targets: Calling Pastors and Intercessors to Houston!|

Israel Evans (1747–1807) was a Princeton educated Presbyterian minister (1775). A Chaplain in Continental Army, Gen. Washington praised his Thanksgiving message to the troops at Valley Forge (1977). He fought Great Britain’s American Indian allies, took part in the Yorktown victory (1781) and preached to French and American troops. He later pastored in Concord, New Hampshire. Evans saw the hand of Providence throughout the war and believed America had a high calling from God. From his sermon before the General Court of New Hampshire, Wednesday, June 1, 1791:
More on the Houston Pastors – Last week we prayed for the five Houston pastors ordered by Houston Mayor Annise Parker and City Attorney David Feldman to produce to the city an exhaustive list of documents that included sermons, all emails and texts to their church members related to “homosexuality,” Mayor Parker an avowed lesbian, H.E.R.O. (the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance) and much more. At the close of this email, I am a going to ask you to pray, to take action and if you can, to join us in Houston!
Overview: 1) The City of Houston passed HERO, dubbed a “bathroom bill” because it gave gender-confused males and females the freedom to use locker-rooms and bathrooms of the opposite sex. 2) Houston Citizens groups, including church leaders, obtained more than 50,000 signatures on a petition. Just 17,269 were needed to put the ordinance to a public vote. 3) Houston City Attorney, David Feldman, rejected the petition saying there were insufficient valid signatures. But the city Secretary certified the signatures as meeting the legal threshold. 4) Citizen parties to the petition filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction to suspend the HERO ordinance, prevent its enforcement and put a repeal measure on the ballot in November. 5) The City’s hired lawyers prepared subpoenas issued to five area pastors, none of whom were party to the lawsuit. Under threat of jail, the pastors were ordered to turn over all sermons and every remotely related private communication with their parishioners about homosexuality. 6) The Alliance Defending Freedom filed a motion to stop the City effort saying it would have a “chilling effect” on future citizen petition efforts. 7) Fox News’ Todd Starnes publicized the story via articles on Fox News and elsewhere. FRC and various Christian media did likewise.
You must read THE ENTIRE SUBPOENA delivered to Pastor Steve Riggle of Houston’s Grace Community Church. If you are a pastor or a prayer warrior, you will realize that it is time for your voice to be heard in heaven and on earth! READ IT HERE!
They Said This Would NOT Happen - this assault on pastors! But clear thinking Christians knew it would. This is a major assault not just on Houston clergy but every pastor’s freedom of religion, speech and more. It is an invasion of every church member’s liberty, peace and privacy. If it can happen in Houston, and is allowed to stand, it can happen eventually in every jurisdiction in America. This is a major escalation of the decades-long siege against God and his people. Their real goal is to destroy the biblical guardrails of society: the eternal laws of God that pertain to men and nations, especially pertaining to marriage, morals and sexuality. They may incarcerate us, even take our goods, but they cannot stop God’s Word or His Church! (see Houston, We have a Problem, EEOC Commission; Subpoena Text)
The Houston Mayor’s action has ignited a nationwide firestorm, as it should have! Tony Perkins wrote, “Parker's missive became the subpoena heard 'round the world. Fed up with this administration's heavy-handedness, Houston has become a rallying cry for freedom-loving Americans tired of seeing their laws and liberties casually tossed aside in a liberal stampede.” (see Houstunned; Subpoena for your Thoughts; Push Back; TX Attorney General; U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner, Baptist Leaders).
The Church’s Call to Action – Christian adoption agencies, marriage photographers, wedding cake bakers, florists and now a ministry couple and their wedding chapel and many more have already felt the sting of anti-religious tyranny – now our pastors and churches! This is a call to spiritual and political arms for every pastor, church, intercessor and believer in America. This could be the spark that wakes up sleepy churches and pastors across the land, who, until now, have avoided engagement in the escalating culture war. Will they continue to hit the snooze button? Will we? This is spiritual warfare. Will we pray extraordinarily, speak boldly and take action courageously? The prizes our adversaries seek are silenced churches, the soul of our nation and the lives and liberty of our children and grandchildren! (see 2 Kg 20:12-19; 2 Chr 26:16-21; Neh 4:14 ff; Ps 27: all; Eph 6:10-20)
I STAND SUNDAY – Sunday November 2nd – FRC and pastors from across the land will travel to Houston to stand with the pastors. Via the Internet FRC will “Simulcast” the Sunday evening event from Pastor Steve Riggle’s Grace Community Church in Houston to churches and home groups across America. Speakers at the 1½ hour gathering will include David & Jason Benham, Pastor Hernan Castano, Dr. Ronnie Floyd, Magda Hermida, Mike Huckabee, Tony Perkins, Alan & Phil Robertson, Dr. Rick Scarborough, Todd Starnes and Dr. Ed Young. God’s people must find out what is happening in Houston! This event will tell them!
Calling Pastors and Intercessors! Tony Perkins is asking pastors to join us in Houston and for believers everywhere, to pray!
If God calls you to join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, church, prayer organization or a brief note about you and your prayer activities. Thank you always, for praying!
