There was an event called The Response scheduled for August 2011 in Houston, Texas. The event has one key purpose: To Press the Gates of Heaven to see justice and righteousness in America.

Very soon, in spite of the success of the event, many pages associated with said movement disappeared from cyberspace. Silence ensued when that is the only vehicle to soften the blows from which our world will endure

We gathered a list of The Responders from Google's cache of on July 23, 2011 at 19:51 GMT since the page had been pulled out by The Response. It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on July 20, 2011 20:21:17 GMT.

The remainder information that you will now see in the 'DETAILS' section was obtained on November 22, 2018, from The Web Archive [] since The Response USA home page [] is no longer on-line. The Web Archive last capture of the page was on March 27, 2018, and the first one on May 29, 2011.


America's issues are not primarily financial, political or moral. Neither does America's hope lie in one leader or institution. Our hope is found in the One who desires for us to turn to Him with all our hearts. This is our response — to call on Jesus on behalf of America, that He might hear our cry and that we would see a revolution of righteousness in this country.

The Response is holding state-wide solemn assemblies to gather people from all ages, denominations and backgrounds in prayer and fasting on behalf of our nation. Join us in your state (either in person, or via our live online broadcast) as the church in America responds to the call to prayer.

In August 2011, The Response gathered 40,000 people in Houston, TX as well as 100,000 unique sites that joined via simulcast to respond to the trumpet call to prayer. Though Governor Rick Perry initiated The Response in Houston, these upcoming state-wide gatherings will not be affiliated with any particular presidential candidates. The Response is committed to prayer above politics, to seeing the church moved to stand for righteousness and to pray for God's mercy for America.

State to state, city to city, we will not rest until we see a righteous revolution awaken the church.

We addressed this movement in our News Commentary post of December 28, 2011 - News Report No. 2.

Why was this most needed and effective movement not promoted and maintained on an on-going basis?

Because it is the last thing satan wants!
