Fast and pray for America.


(Daniel 9:8)

We need to pray for revival, a Third Great Awakening — that God would pour out His Holy Spirit and work repentance and revival in our land and give us the knowledge and fear of the Lord.

Fast and pray for America: Our Founding Fathers called numerous fasts. Christians should fast and confess personal and national sins in the spirit of 2 Chronicles 7:14: If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land (ESV).


Why I Am a Christian

MASSACHUSETTS.

The proclamation of Governor Andrew, of Massachusetts, for 1861, is an important Christian state paper, and is a model of its kind for Christian rulers:

Proclamation for a Day of Public Thanksgiving and Praise, November 21, 1861.
The example of the fathers, and the dictates of piety and gratitude, summon the people of Massachusetts at this, the harvest-season, crowning the year with the rich proofs of the wisdom and love of God, to join in a solemn and joyful act of united praise and thanksgiving to the bountiful Giver of every good and perfect gift.
I do, therefore, with the advice and consent of the Council, appoint Thursday, the twenty-first day of November next—the same being the anniversary of that day, in the year of our Lord sixteen hundred and twenty, on which the Pilgrims of Massachusetts, on board the Mayflower, united themselves in a solemn and written compact of government—to be observed by the people of Massachusetts as a day of public thanksgiving and praise. And I invoke its observance by all the people with devout and religious joy.

“Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
“Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
“For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.” Ps. Ixxxi. 1-4.

 In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, 10 being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 5:7-10 ESV)

For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do. (Hebrews 6:10 ESV)
