September 10, 2014 – For Immediate Release

In a video released today, Glenn Beck issued an invitation to the Ohio Statehouse, Wednesday, September 17th, for an “Appeal to Heaven,” one week from today.

Beck said Ohio legislator’s “haven’t done” what they were hired to do, adding, ““They say they’re pro-life, but they have held the pro-life Heartbeat Bill hostage for four years.”

Beck said, “It’s time to go over their heads, and I mean WAY over their heads, and make an appeal, not to the courts–you’re invited to join pastors and leaders from around the state–for an “Appeal to Heaven.”

Beck encouraged people to “Join those gathering at the Ohio Statehouse on High Street at the Ohio Seal that bears the motto: ‘With God All Things Are Possible.’ I believe that motto,” Beck said. “If you do, come and stand in the gap with those asking God to end abortion and protect our children and our liberties.

At the event hosted by Faith2Action, legislators, pastors, and leaders from around the state will gather at the Ohio Seal and motto on the High Street side of the Statehouse beginning at 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. to pray for the passage of the Heartbeat Bill and the end of abortion. A press conference will be held following the event, along with a delivery of 70 baby sleepers to Governor Kasich, Speaker Bill Batchelder, and Senate President Keith Faber–the amount of children who are aborted each day because of their inaction.
