Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth [i.e. heads of state] set themselves, and the rulers [i.e. leaders in society] take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us" [i.e. removing the influence of God’s word from culture and society]. Psalm 2:1-3 (NKJV).
LETTER FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, DANIEL GERACI
Dear ADRN Family,
I believe we can all agree that we live in unprecedented times; and unprecedented times demand an unprecedented response. What if the whole Church in Greater Austin united together with ONE heart and ONE voice to fast and pray during the month of September? If we partner together with the Lord, could this invoke His divine intervention, ushering in the change we know our city and nation so desperately needs?
YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN US IN SEPTEMBER: NEXT STEPS
INVITATION TO INDIVIDUALS
If you sense agreement in your heart from the Lord, here's how you and your family can participate:
