TUPELO, Miss., Dec. 19, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- American Family Association (www.afa.net) President Tim Wildmon released the following statement today regarding the upcoming "The Response Louisiana" prayer gathering taking place January 24th in Baton Rouge:

    "As our nation faces unprecedented crises—culturally, socially, and financially—'The Response Louisiana' is a call for worshippers in Louisiana and around the country to come together in unity for prayer and fasting. This event has one purpose and one purpose only: to approach God in humility and pray for his mercy, grace and guidance for our nation, which has lost its moral foundation and is suffering from a crisis of faith. It's so encouraging to see Christians from across denominational and cultural backgrounds join in this time of prayer, and we truly believe God will be faithful to His Word. AFA is pleased to announce this event on our Louisiana radio stations in hopes that even more Christians will commit themselves to taking part in this event."

American Family Association (AFA) a non-profit 501(c3) organization was founded in 1977 by Donald E. Wildmon, who was pastoring First United Methodist Church in Southaven, Mississippi, at the time. Since 1977, AFA has been on the frontlines of America's culture war. The original name of the ministry was National Federation for Decency but was changed to American Family Association in 1988. Today, AFA is one of the largest and most effective pro-family organizations in the country with more than one million online supporters and approximately 180,000 paid subscribers to the AFA Journal, the ministry's monthly magazine. In addition, AFA owns and operates nearly 200 radio stations across the country under the American Family Radio banner.

Other divisions of AFA include American Family Radio, the AFA Foundation and OneNewsNow.com, an online news provider that is syndicated around the world. AFA maintains activist websites such as OneMillionMoms.com that rally Christian activists to contact companies asking them to drop their advertising from objectionable TV shows. AFA websites average over 6 million unique visitors and 44 million hits per year. AFA uses all these means to communicate an outspoken, resolute, Christian voice throughout America.
