Washington, DC (September 4, 2013) – Today, the announcement has been made that Grammy and multi-Dove Award winning Christian recording artist Jason Crabb has been appointed to the Special Advisory Committee of the 9/11 Day of Prayer and Repentance being observed next week nationally. In accepting the appointment to the special committee, Crabb joins a select group of high profile nationally recognized Christian influencers that includes Congresswoman Michelle Bachman, pastor Greg Laurie, actor Chuck Norris and singer Pat Boone, among others.
The 9/11 Day of Prayer & Repentance is a movement that began in April as an editorial column at WND.com by WND CEO and Founder Joseph Farah. Within days the response came from thousands of readers wishing to enlist themselves and their families, church groups, Bible studies and neighbors.
Overwhelmed by the outpouring, Farah noted about the 9/11 call to action: “When America was founded 237 years ago, fellow believers fought to establish and protect the role of God in the fabric of our country. We are a nation originally built on and by prayer. Today, as Christians, we can look around and readily see that our beloved homeland is tragically broken and our culture is breaking down and dramatically moving away from God. Those of us who understand the challenges we face for the very survival of America as we have known it as one nation under God must start planning now to do something radical.”
That something is the 2013 nationwide day of prayer and repentance. .
In noting the announcement of the latest addition to the Special Committee, Joseph Farah noted: “Jason Crabb is a young American who authentically embodies the principals on which the day is based –a consistent passion for keeping God in the center of our daily agenda and for encouraging others through both his witness and example to follow God in prayer and action. We’re extremely honored with his willingness to participate.”
“I’m honored to be involved with the 9/11 day of prayer and repentance," shared Jason Crabb. "I firmly believe that America’s only shining hope is a return to God in the midst of these dark times. I pray this event will help encourage individuals and churches alike to take the time to honor God next week in the observance of the September 11 anniversary.”
