Kirk Cameron calls for prayer and unity in ‘Revive US 2’

Kirk Cameron joined with spiritual leaders and high profile figures for a call of prayer from Christians in Revive US 2, a self-described “national family meeting” in theaters for two-nights. The rebroadcast airs Wednesday, November 1 at 7:00 p.m. local time.

Returning on November 1, Cameron apppears with Dr. Ben Carson, Francis Chan, Ravi Zacharias, Joni Eareckson Tada, Trillia Newbell, musical guests Zach Williams and Christian Cuevas. The message is clear: prayer and an involved church is needed to address the political, racial, economic and religious tensions rising in America.

While promoting the film, Cameron stated that “an awakening has already started” and the Christian revival revealed in other countries illustrates his point, but the hurdles in the U.S. can still feel insurmountable.

“We have so many things causing anxiety like hurricanes and wildfires and tragedies in Las Vegas. We need a path to unity,” Cameron said.

Broadcasting live from the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., Revive US 2 is for the faithful. In fact, it was Cameron who drew the ire of critics with his remarks after the hurricanes, quoting scripture and saying we should “remember that it’s God who supplies our life, breath and everything else so that you and I would reach out to Him…”

The reaction was attack, attack and more attack (Read HERE) on one side versus love and support on the other. How do you reconcile that?

Cameron’s approach is admirable from the Christian point of view and it was a great time of worship, fellowship and incite from great minds, especially Zacharias and Carson. That said, the gulf between God’s grace and a secular world touting climate change, abortion and euthanasia seems impossible to overcome with a message to the choir.

I applaud the efforts of calling out evangelicals “crying in its Chick-fil-A soup” while attacking the politically correct narrative of liberal media.

One thing the church needs is honest encouragement. Yes, there is division over race, religion politics, money, gender, choice, the NFL, the American flag, and the national anthem. Yes, there is hope, love, mercy and grace through Christ Jesus.

Now it’s on the families at the prayer meeting to make the two meet and seek actual cultural change.

Get tickets for the rebroadcast of the live event, which will play on Wednesday, November 1 at 7:00 p.m. local time online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.
