The call comes from Michael Anthony, pastor of Grace Fellowship in York, Pennsylvania for a week of badly needed repentance. But he says it's not just a one-time event.

After getting off one's knees, individuals and churches need to ask themselves several questions, says the pastor

"How is my life going to be different? How is my family going to be different? How is my church going to be different?" should be the questions asked, Anthony advises.

The pastor points out that Jesus' words in Mark 1:15 were to "repent and believe," and that means to continue to repent and continue to believe.

Anthony tells OneNewsNow it can no longer be business as usual in churches: "There is nothing usual in what is happening in the United States of America," he says, citing moral decay, racial division, spiritual dryness, and financial decline.

Anthony encourages pastors to join in the campaign starting this weekend and continue the theme with personal action into the future.

Revivalmatters.com will livestream Anthony's sermons during the week and the website also has resources for individuals and churches.
