America . . . How Soon We Have Forgotten . . . .

How soon we forget . . .

After entreating God and imploring Him for help and then watching Him supernaturally intervene over and over. . . .We become arrogant and begin to claim that WE did “it.” We get lazy and no longer go to the throne of grace and mercy for all we need; for His answers and hand in our daily activities.

Oh . . . America . . . America . . .

Our Country was founded on the belief in GOD and His Son. Jesus – God who became man – born of a virgin. One who lived a perfect, sin free life and was crucified for our sins, Jesus, who rose on the third day, giving us all the hope of an eternity with Him. Christians . . . across America believed in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that the Bible is the inspired, unerring word of God. This was a common and underlying belief among the settlers who came to this land. They came and formed this country and our governmentand God blessed America. They came . . . Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, Catholics, Puritans, Lutherans, Episcopalians, Anglicans, Dutch Reformers, Huguenots, etc.

They made an effort to live by His book. When they failed, they repented. Many times throughout the history of our great nation . . . entire communities and our country as a whole . . . searched for areas of disobedience or lack of honor to the Lord and returned to obedience, when famine or enemies threatened

They REPENTED, fasted and prayed.

God honored and blessed that action repeatedly in America, just as He did throughout the Bible. He will bless it now, for GOD is the SAME Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

National days of thanksgiving and of “humiliation, fasting, and prayer” were proclaimed by Congress. As Samuel Huntington, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, president of Congress, judge and Governor of Connecticut – March 9, 1791, said “It becomes a people publicly to acknowledge the over-ruling hand of Divine Providence and their dependence upon the Supreme Being as their Creator and Merciful Preserver… and with becoming humility and sincere repentance to supplicate the pardon that we may obtain forgiveness through the merits and mediation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

Millions of Americans are fasting for 40 days at this time, organized by various Christian groups of people. Praise GOD! This is how we are to do spiritual battle. The armies of the Lord move when we fast and pray. Yet, many Christians still do not know about these projects. Many don’t understand fasting and have never done it. They are not currently participating.  Let’s let them know about ONE DAY . . . Nov. 5th, 2012, where ALL believers . . . people from all denominations, people of all political persuasions  . . . will stand unified . . . nationwide before the Lord. Let’s take it up a notch and practice this as “they” did.

Let us BE the ONE NATION UNDER GOD we have called ourselves and publically proclaim this day, where we cease to participate in our normal activities; where we bow in humility before the Lord as a country. An entire DAY devoted to national repentance, prayer and fasting on the day before the election. Lets implore the ONE who sets the rulers in place, who causes nations to rise and fall to supernaturally intervene and return His favor to our land and cause what is best for The United States of America, in this election, to take place. Let the world be in awe of the God we praise and how He works . . . as they watch those who are called by His name stand in unity and turn to Him for answers and help. America is in GRAVE danger. God favor and blessing is our hope.

Governmental offices of the United States of America have frequently proclaimed A DAY to honor God and beseech His help in times of trouble.  Here are some of the presidential issued Days of Fasting, Humiliation and Prayer that stand as only a partial list among those called by governors, mayors and leaders of communities across our land and history.

JOHN HANCOCK issued aproclamation on April 15, 1775 for May 11th.A Day of Fasting, Humiliation and Prayer, with a total abstinence from labor and recreation” in response to the beginning of the War for Independence – Proclamation on April 15, 1775 for May 11th.

In circumstances as dark as these, it becomes us, as Men and Christians, to reflect that whilst every prudent measure should be taken to ward off the impending judgments… at the same time all confidence must be withheld from the means we use; and reposed only on that God rules in the armies of Heaven, and without His whole blessing, the best human counsels are but foolishness

Resolved…Thursday the 11th of May…to humble themselves before God under the heavy judgments felt and feared, to confess the sins that have deserved them, to implore the Forgiveness of all our transgressions, and a spirit of repentance and reformation …and a Blessing on the … Union of the American Colonies in Defense of their Rights…  

PRESIDENT JOHN ADAMS issued a national fasting and prayer proclamation on March 23, 1798.

PRESIDENT JAMES MADISON on July 9, 1812 issued A National Humiliation and Prayer Proclamation, as well as four Hymns to accompany this day of national Humiliation and Prayer.

JAMES BUCHANAN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, on December 14, 1860 called the nation to National Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer.

PRESIDENT LINCOLN, 1863, amid civil war, proclaimed a national day of “public humiliation, prayer and fasting.” . . . “Itis meet and right to recognize and confess the presence of the Almighty Father and the power of His hand equally in these triumphs and in these sorrows…

Whereas it is fit and becoming in all people, at all times, to acknowledge and revere the Supreme Government of God; to bow in humble submission to his chastisements; to confess and deplore their sins and transgressions in the full conviction that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; and to pray, with all fervency and contrition, for the pardonof their past offences, and for a blessing upon their present and prospective action…

[It] is peculiarly fit for us to recognize the hand of God in this terrible visitation, and in sorrowful remembrance of our own faults and crimes as a nation and as individuals, to humble ourselves before Him, and to pray for His mercy, — to pray that we may be spared further punishment, though most justly deserved; that our arms may be blessed and made effectual for the re-establishment of law, order and peace, throughout the wide extent of our country; and that the inestimable boon of civil and religious liberty, earned under His guidance and blessing, by the labors and sufferings of our fathers, may be restored in all its original excellence…

Therefore, [I appoint] a day of humiliation, prayer and fasting for all the people of the nation . . . And I do earnestly recommend to all the People, and especially to all ministers and teachers of religion of all denominations, and to all heads of families, to observe and keep that day according to their several creeds and modes of worship, in all humility and with all religious solemnity, to the end that the united prayer of the nation may ascend to the Throne of Grace and bring down plentiful blessings upon our Country.

______________________________________

If our government will not declare it . . . We submit and propose Nov. 5, 2012 be proclaimed a NATIONAL Day of Repentance, Fasting and Prayer, by We, the People . . . as America is indeed once again in grave danger. Let us, in one unified, nationwide appeal to the creator of heaven and earth, ask God, who makes the nations rise and/or fall to hear our plea and bless us once again. Let the WORLD see that AMERICA is INDEED a CHRISTIAN nation  . . . and then watch as God does what only GOD can do. Let us proclaim Him! And let ALL behold the hand of God when His people repent and cry out to Him . . . for His ways are not our ways and our thoughts are not His thoughts. It will be surprising and amazing! Will you join us?!
