Fast and pray for America.

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.

Education in Maryland and The Carolinas
In Maryland and the Carolinas early legislative efforts were made “to establish schools for the convenient instruction of youth,” and taxes were levied for their maintenance. The first constitution of Georgia provided that every county should “establish and keep a school at the public expense.”
The preamble of the act establishing the first free school in Charleston, S. C., set forth “the necessity that a free school be erected for the instruction of youth in grammar and other arts and sciences, and also Christian religion; and that several well-disposed Christians, by their last will, had given several sums of money for the founding of a free school.” It was provided, also, that the teacher “should be of the religion of the Church of England, and capable of teaching the Latin and Greek languages.” Instructors were legally enjoined to see that the children “receive in their tender years that sense of religion which may render it the constant principle of their lives and actions.”

About 2700 “Palatines,” as they were called, who had sought refuge in England, were sent out by the British government under Colonel Hunter in 1710, when that officer was transferred from the governorship of Virginia to that of New-York; and German settlements were formed about that time, and some years following, on the “German Flats,” and in some other parts of the latter province. (Page 80).

The following order presents the character of a Christian superior to that of a patriot or soldier:
Head-Quarters, Valley Forge, May 2, 1778.
George Washington…. To the distinguished character of a patriot it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of a Christian. The signal instances of providential goodness which we have experienced, and which have almost crowned our arms with complete success, demand from us, in a peculiar manner, the warmest returns of gratitude and piety to the Supreme Author of all good.

“Truly God is with us, and, though the way be dark and dreary, I will believe he will carry us through safely at last.”
In a general order, July, 1776, Washington says,
The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of the army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance or the most abject submission.
Let us, then, rely on the goodness of our cause and the aid of the Supreme Being in whose hands victory is, to animate and encourage us to noble action.

Listen to today’s Scripture.

The Transfiguration

17 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light. And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him. And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” He was still speaking when, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son,[a] with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were terrified. But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.” And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. Matthew 17:1-8 ESV)

God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. (2 Timothy 1:8-10 ESV)
