The United States of America is the only country that has ever been founded on the premise that the citizen is sovereign. The USA is based on the timeless idea that all men are created equal, and that we are endowed with God-given, unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  The United States’ Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights guarantee that freedom for its citizens based on the responsibility of that citizen to live morally and ethically according to a specific set of Judeo-Christian behavioral guidelines. And these are precisely the primary reasons the USA is under attack, and from both foreign and domestic enemies.

Christians Can Change World Events

Christians have altered the course of history and governments by emphasizing Biblical methods of prayer and fasting. It has been documented that even recent history has been shaped through prayer. Examples include the Second World War in North Africa, the birth of the state of Israel, the end of the Stalin Era, the independence of Kenya, East Africa, and the presidential election of 2016, USA. Regarding the latter, be encouraged to enjoy just a few of the prophecies dating as far back as April 4, 2007 here and here.

 

We the people, today, can too—implement change even in local, state, and national governments.

 

 

 

We the people proclaim a National Day of Fasting, Prayer, and Humility Friday, October 4, 2019. The same has preceded monthly since November 4, 2009.

 

 

 

Concise History Lessons and Prayer Points for Today

Our world is on fire. Syria has fallen apart from genocide. Russia has seized Ukrainian land at gunpoint. And China is flexing its muscles. The diabolical lust for power of dictators and oppressors are replete in humankind’s history. Yet, since World War II, something happened that secured authentic relative peace and world-wide economic expansion for decades. What was it? Hint: It was not about the exemplary lust for power, oppression, terror, or money. It did however, include morality. In less than 6-minutes, NATO's former Secretary General and Denmark's former Prime Minister, Anders Fogh Rasmussen provides a concise history lesson and prayer points for us today.

By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

 

Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.

 

And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.

 

And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!

 

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency [mercy] and forgiveness.

 

Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer. And I do hereby request all the People to abstain, on that day, from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord, and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.

 

All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings, no less than the pardon of our national sins, and the restoration of our now divided and suffering Country, to its former happy condition of unity and peace.

 

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

 

Done at the City of Washington, this thirtieth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty seventh.

 

By the President: Abraham Lincoln

William H. Seward, Secretary of State.”

 

 

 

The above proclamation is preserved in the Li­brary of Congress as Appendix number 19 in volume 12 of the United States At Large. It was initiated by a resolution of the United States Senate, and was officially declared by President Lincoln on March 30, 1863.

“The [above proclamation] message of the United States Senate, officially declared by President Lincoln contains two related themes that may challenge our careful consideration.

 

First, the proclamation acknowledges the unique blessings enjoyed by the United States, but suggests that these blessings have brought about an attitude of pride and self‑sufficiency that are the root causes of a grave national crisis. Some of the phrases could apply with equal force to the condition of the nation today: “We have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown.... We have vainly imag­ined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.... We have become too self-sufficient ... too proud to pray to the God that made us!”

 

Second, the proclamation unequivocally acknowledges “the overruling power of God” in the affairs of men and nations. It indicates that behind the political, economic, and military forces of history, there are divine spiritual laws at work; and that by acknowledging and submitting to these laws, a nation may change its destiny, averting threatened disaster and regaining true peace and prosperity. In particular, the proclamation sets forth one specific, practical way in which a nation may invoke on its own behalf “the overruling power of God”—by united prayer and fasting.

 

The author of this proclamation, Abraham Lincoln, is generally regarded, both by Americans and by the world at large, as one of the shrewdest and most enlightened of American presidents. He was a man of sincere faith and deep convictions, but he never sought membership in any of the Christian denominations of his day. In no sense could he be considered as unbalanced or extreme in his religious views. Further, this proclamation was not merely the product of Lincoln's private convictions. It was requested by a resolution of the entire United States Senate.

 

How shall we assess the deep and unanimous convictions of men of this caliber? Shall we dismiss them as irrelevant or out‑of‑date? To do this would be merely the mark of unreasoning prejudice.

 

Rather, we owe it to ourselves to give honest and careful consideration to this proclamation and the issues that it raises.

 

Is there a divine Power that overrules the destinies of nations? Can this Power effectively be petitioned by prayer and fasting?

 

It is to the examination of these questions that this [book] is devoted. An answer will be offered from four main sources: first, the teaching of Scripture; second, events of world history during or after World War II; third, the annals of American history; fourth, records of personal experience in the realm of prayer and fasting.”

Why is it important that we, as citizens in this Republic, get involved and remain involved in making and protecting public policy?

America is the only country that has ever been founded on the premise that the citizen is sovereign. As such, we are obligated to rule and govern ourselves, under God. We need to fulfill this obligation by exercising our sovereignty in a responsible way, starting with prayer.

Pray for President Trump

 

“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you make your requests, plead for God's mercy upon them, and give thanks. Pray this way for kings and all others who are in authority, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, for He wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and people. He is the man Christ Jesus. He gave His life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message that God gave to the world at the proper time.” 

—1 Timothy 2:1-6

May God bless you in this endeavor to know Him through Jesus the Christ (Y’shua Messiah) more and more and more, and to know the power of His love. Be of good cheer, be not afraid; He has overcome the world!
