This prayer guide was sent to me yesterday from one of the elders in our church…the attached email introduces it – I recommend you read through it with your family and begin praying for this country. Our rights to raise our children are at stake – but there’s much more to it. And don’t forget to vote in this year’s presidential election!
Dear Concerned American,
Our country is on the brink of destruction, and we are at a turning point in the history of America!
The Bible says in II Chronicles 7:14 “IF my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Hosea 10:12-13 says, “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way…”
The people of God have become complacent and we have committed whoredom against the LORD. His heavy hand of chastening is upon us. But He says, if we will turn and humble ourselves and fast and pray, He will hear us from heaven and heal our land. He tells us that judgment begins with His people. We need to act now!
In Joel’s day, a mighty army was coming as a chastening of the LORD. Listen to what God says through His prophet Joel! Joel 1:6-2:32 (selected verses) “For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion…Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God…. Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD. Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come….Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations….Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him? …Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. …Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things. ..And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten ..And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. ..And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh ..And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered.”
According to the video documentary entitled “AGENDA Grinding America Down,” our current administration is following a plan to create various crises and then set the stage for the government to step in as the solution to the crises. As the crises mount and increase in severity, the goal is for the government system to get overloaded (welfare, unemployment, etc.) and create chaos. As the chaos increases, the people are willing to be under authoritarian leaders, and a take over becomes not only easy, but the people beg for it. This is exactly what Hitler did during WWII! This plan is outlined in books on how to move a democratic society to socialism and then on to communism. This is the mighty and powerful “army of our day” that is the equivalent to the army in Joel’s day above. (See the video “AGENDA: Grinding America Down.” You can get it at: Agendadocumentary.com.)
Well, my name is Tina, and I am just an ordinary mother and homemaker. I was at a conference recently, and the theme was “Doing Impossible Things for God.” One of the speakers (William Federer) spoke about all the presidents from George Washington to George Bush, and the days of prayer they declared while in office. One thing glaringly stood out to me. The earliest Presidents called it a “Day of Humility, Prayer and Fasting.” As time marched on, Presidents called it a “Day of Prayer and Fasting.” Even more recently it has been called simply a “Day of Prayer.” And now, our current President has eliminated the National Day of Prayer altogether, and even declared we are no longer a Christian Nation. As Humility, and then Fasting were eliminated from these declared “Days”, we see less and less powerful answers to prayer. This grabbed me as the reason for our dilemma as Americans. We are a Proud, Arrogant, Stubborn, and Stiffnecked People who have turned away from God. God says He HATES Pride; it is an abomination to Him! No wonder we are in such dangerous times! We see above that the answer is to turn back to God and to humble ourselves and to fast and pray. See Daniel 9:3-23 for an example of a godly man confessing the sins of his nation… and the results!
As I sat in the sessions at this conference, I was deeply stirred thinking, “Somebody needs to get America praying!” An idea began to form in my mind as God nudged me, “Tina, what about you?” I began to argue with God saying, “God, I am just a little, insignificant, nobody! My email address book fits on one page! How could I do that? I don’t have access to all of America!” All of a sudden the thought came, “Tina, what is the theme of this conference you are so inspired by?” I thought, “Oh yes Lord, it is Doing the Impossible for God.” I said in my heart, “God if you want me to do it, I will. But You have to do it through me, because this is truly impossible for me to do!” As soon as I committed to do it, my mind was flooded with what I was supposed to do. Everything from layout, to Bible illustrations, to verses. When I got home, I prayed, “God if this is of you, let the ideas, examples, verses, thoughts, etc., come easily, without strain or striving on my part.” That is exactly what happened. As I thought about how to get this out across America, God gave me the idea to send this information not only to everyone I know, but to people who are leaders of large ministries / organizations and have a much bigger group of people they can reach. As we all pass it on, perhaps the fires of revival will begin in our country. If 2 or 3 gathered in Jesus’ name is effective…what about all the people of God in America humbling ourselves, fasting and praying together!
So, I am asking people like you to take this little “spark,” and fan the flame to spread it across America. Please! Help me declare 5 days of Humility, Prayer and Fasting for America!
The “5 Days” are Wednesday September 5th, Wednesday October 3rd, and November 4th, 5th, and 6th (Sunday, Monday and Tuesday – election day.) I was prompted to start 2 months before the election for 2 reasons: First, we need to humble ourselves. This takes time for God’s Spirit to convict us as we meditate on His truth. Secondly, the devil is influencing our government with an agenda, wicked schemes and plans that need to be intercepted in prayer. These plans and schemes are already in the works; prayer needs to start immediately!
Below is attached a Devotional Prayer Guide for these 5 Days of Humility, Prayer and Fasting. Please look over it, and if you feel you can endorse it, please pass it on to everyone you know who will pray! There is a seperate section for September / October days and for the November days. The November days are at the bottom of the document.
If you are a large ministry or organization, and you know other influential leaders of ministries / organizations, please pass this on to them! This will be the fastest way to get this across our land.
Thank You for Your Help in Declaring 5 Days of Humility, Prayer and Fasting for America! May God Richly Reward You for Your Efforts in This! To God Be All Glory and Honor and Power, Amen!
