PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 25, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- GOD TV founders Rory & Wendy Alec are joining many influential Christian leaders to call America back to God. GOD TV will broadcast the 'America for Jesus' solemn assembly LIVE this weekend as thousands gather in Philadelphia.
The two-day broadcast marathon will start on Friday September 28 at 8.30pm (EST) with the Awakening Youth Rally hosted by Teen Mania founder, Ron Luce. Speakers at the all day event on Saturday September 29 will include Cindy Jacobs, Lou Engle and Bishop Harry Jackson. This will be televised LIVE from 10am to 6pm (EST).
GOD TV can be watched via satellite across the USA on channel 365 of DIRECTV and via cable and digital terrestrial transmission in some cities. The entire America for Jesus event will be streamed LIVE at www.god.tv ; also via Roku Streaming players (www.roku.com) and through the GOD TV App, available on iTunes.
America for Jesus aims to mobilize Christians in prayer, calling the Church to be 'the salt' that will bring healing to the nation. It was birthed out of 'One Nation Under God, Inc,' a coalition of ministries that has organized several solemn assemblies that have attracted several hundred thousand people.
It is significant that America For Jesus 2012 will take place at the Independence Mall in Philadelphia as this is where the Declaration of Independence was signed and where the Constitution of the United States was debated and ratified.
"America is in a state of emergency evidenced by widespread moral depravity and economic meltdown," say the event's national chairperson, Anne Gimenez. "There is only one remedy, we need to renew our covenant with God. We are calling America back to God and proclaiming liberty and freedom over our nation."
GOD TV has supported many prayer events for America including TheCall mass gatherings and annual National Day of Prayer. Rory & Wendy Alec carry a burden for America to turn back to God and encourage viewers to tune in to America for Jesus.
"God is calling the Church in the USA to awaken from her slumber," said Wendy, who is also GOD TV's Director of Television. "We have to be stirred by God’s might and power and rise up as a righteous people, who will humble ourselves and cry out to Him so that the enemy's plans for this nation will be reversed."
