Fast and pray for America.

O Lord, to us belongs confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you. (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).

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12) We can’t lose. They can’t win.

“And they abandoned the LORD, the God of their fathers, who had brought them out of the land of Egypt. They went after other gods, from among the gods of the peoples who were around them, and bowed down to them. And they provoked the LORD to anger.” (Judges 2:12)

The Lord has removed the hedge protecting our nation.

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. (Romans 1:28 ESV)

Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him. (Psalm 2:10-12)

Why I Am a Christian: My Testimony

Today’s Scripture: Nothing on Earth I Desire Besides You

Peter Cartwright (1785-1872) was ordained by the famous Methodist circuit-riding preachers Rev. Francis Asbury and Rev. William McKendree, who fought in the Siege of Yorktown during the Revolutionary War and is the namesake of the oldest university in Illinois.

Cartwright served as a chaplain during the War of 1812.

Carrying on the religious movement known as the Second Great Awakening Revival, Rev. Cartwright was one of the most famous Methodist camp meeting evangelists.

As a circuit-riding minister, he preached nearly 15,000 sermons and baptized almost 12,000 converts.

Peter Cartwright planted churches in the Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee and Illinois.

He helped found McKendree College in Lebanon, IL, the oldest college in the State of Illinois. In 1824, Peter Cartwright left Kentucky and Tennessee because of his disdain for slavery, and moved to Illinois, where he was elected to the Illinois General Assembly in 1828. Cartwright was re-elected in 1832, defeating a Kentucky store clerk named Abraham Lincoln. In 1846, Peter Cartwright ran for the U.S. Congress, but this time, was defeated by Abraham Lincoln.
