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.

The Baptist Church

Has in its American and English history a noble record in favor of freedom and free institutions. The great conflicts of the Reformation under Luther brought them into existence as an ecclesiastical body, and at all times and in all nations they have been loyal to civil and religious liberty. In England, their faith and freedom-loving principles led them, with the Puritans and Independents, to separate from the Church of England, and to seal, as many did, their devotion to truth by a martyr’s death.

Roger Williams, of Rhode Island, was the founder of the Baptist Church in America, ‘ In 1638 he formed a church in Providence: so that the labors of this denomination date from the first era of the Christian history of the country. He had the honor first in this country to enunciate and incorporate into a civil constitution the principle that “the civil power has no jurisdiction over the conscience. The civil magistrate should restrain crime, but never control opinion—should punish guilt, but never violate the soul.” “It became his glory,” says [historian George] Bancroft [1800-1891], “to found a state on that principle; and its application has given religious peace to the American world.” Rev. Benjamin F. Morris’ 1864 book The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States. (pages 553-554)

Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:

23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
    and they shall call his name Immanuel”

(which means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus. (Matthew 1:18-23 ESV)

‭‭‭

So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19 ESV)
