Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has issued a proclamation declaring today a voluntary “Day of Prayer, Humility, and Fasting.” He explained: “We know that prayer accomplishes much. Prayer strengthens our families and it strengthens our communities. It strengthens our relationship with our neighbors. It strengthens our relationship with God himself.”
As a result, the governor states, “Maria and I will take the day and offer prayers of healing. Prayers for forgiveness. Prayers of thanksgiving. And prayers of hope for our state and for the 6.7 million who call Tennessee home. We invite all Tennesseans to join us. In their homes. In their communities. In their places of worship, to fast and to pray for God’s favor and blessing on the people of Tennessee.”
Of course, some claim that the governor’s proclamation violates the separation of church and state and are urging him to “keep religion out of politics.” This despite the fact that US presidents have issued similar declarations numerous times, beginning with President George Washington on November 26, 1789.
The less people welcome our intercession, the more they need it.
Global Day of Prayer in Jerusalem
In related news, an estimated 100 million Christians and Jews participated in the Global Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem last Sunday. David Friedman, the US Ambassador to Israel, was the keynote speaker. He and Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion were joined by seventy millennial pastors from the US, Canada, and Brazil.
The founder of the global day of prayer called it “the largest annual prayer gathering in the world of Christians praying in solidarity with Jerusalem.” The event concluded a three-day worship and prayer gathering called Awake Jerusalem, where hundreds of Christians from over twenty nations assembled at key sites in the Holy City for worship, teaching, and prayer.
We are told to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17),…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
