Brody File Exclusive: Bobby Jindal's Letter to America's Governors: Come Worship Jesus with Me and Pray for Revival

The Brody File has obtained a letter sent by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to the other 49 governors in America, asking them to attend this Saturday’s huge prayer event at LSU in Baton Rouge where he tells them the following: “There will only be one name lifted up that day – Jesus!”

Jindal is truly at the forefront of calling for spiritual revival in this country. He’s a politician who is not afraid to step out in faith and speak boldly about his Christian faith. In his letter to the nation’s governors, he cites Bible verses that call for us to seek God out in prayer so the Lord will restore a nation.

“I believe now is the time for us to have a similar posture of humility, honesty and honor before The Lord on behalf of our nation,” Jindal writes. “We need an appeal to heaven for heaven’s intervention over us. We need to pray to the Lord that He will send spiritual revival to our nation.”

The entire letter below.

The Brody File will provide exclusive coverage of the huge event along with big pastors meeting taking place in Baton Rouge this Friday. Dozens of pastors, who are praying about getting involved in the political process are gathering the day before to attend a training event geared to help equip and encourage pastors if they decide to seek political office.

It’s being sponsored by the American Renewal Project. You don’t want to miss The Brody File coverage of this event.

Letter from Governor Jindal to 49 Governors

Dear Governor,

America, our great nation, is in great need.

We are faced with fatherless homes, an epidemic of drugs and crime, a saturation of pornography, an increase in the polarization, division, and hopelessness amongst many. We need trust, respect and civility restored.  Yet as I trust you would agree, there are limits to our own influence as governmental leaders. Lasting change does not come only from laws and legislation, but from the changing of hearts produced by spiritual revival.

In 2 Chronicles 7:14, the Lord makes this promise to us, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” The Bible also speaks of the prophet Joel, who lived in days of great challenge and crises. His response to these challenges was a clear call for prayer, “Declare a holy fast; call a solemn assembly.  Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the Lord your God and cry out to the Lord.” Joel 1:14.

Likewise, I believe now is the time for us to have a similar posture of humility, honesty and honor before The Lord on behalf of our nation. We need an appeal to heaven for heaven’s intervention over us.

We need to pray to the Lord that He will send spiritual revival to our nation.

That is why I am inviting everyone to join us on January 24th at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge from 10:00 am till 4:00 pm for a Solemn assembly of Worship, Prayer and Fasting, as we corporately lift up the name of The Lord. There will be no politicians giving speeches and no preachers pontificating. This gathering will be apolitical in nature and open to all who would like to join us in humble posture before our Creator to intervene on behalf of our people and nation. There will only be one name lifted up that day – Jesus!

On Saturday, all ages, denominations, ethnic and racial backgrounds will gather to pray for America, asking God for His mercy and Abounding Grace. Christians will choose to cross their racial, denominational, generational and political preferences, to meet at the Cross of Christ together to pray for revival.

If you would like to join us, for all or part of this day of prayer, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Bobby Jindal
Governor, Louisiana
