December 16th, 2009 was a historic night in the course of our nation. It was a night that fanned the flame of a powerful movement of people of faith toward one common goal; the preservation of our spiritual heritage.
The Family Research Counsel along with Lou Engle of The Call and several other National Leaders spearheaded this unbelievable night. Among those that attended were Congressman Randy Forbes, Congressman Mike McIntyre, Senator Sam Brownback, Bishop Harry Jackson, and Dr. James Dobson.
Repentance was the catalyst for the night. Several leaders took turns repenting on behalf of decisions or actions made by people of faith or leaders that are against Biblical Principles; specifically for allowing the killing of unborn children, immorality, ignoring the poor, not praying for our leaders, or for the poor decisions made by ungodly leaders in the past.
Dr. James and Shirley Dobson joined the group via phone and warned of the implications if people of faith do not follow the moral and structural principles outlined in scripture. Her comments reinforce the urgency of the need to focus on the Health Care Reform. If is passes, it is directly opposing most of the foundational Biblical principles that shaped this nation.
Senator Brownback shared how this Health Care Reform would dim the light of the United States; once known as a “Beacon of Light”. He said it would promote radical social policies that would cause us to lose our “exceptionalism as a nation.” The rationing of healthcare, government funding of abortions, taxes on married couples-promoting co-habitation without covenant, overextension of an already outrageous national debt, euthanasia, higher taxes on next generation, and approval of marijuana are just a few of the very actions potentially violating our spiritual heritage and freedom.
Congresswoman Michele Bachman reminded viewers that according to Isaiah 9:6, the government is on “His” shoulders. God is our only solution; the Ultimate Authority. There are several instances in scriptures where God turned the hearts of kings in order to accomplish His will. The only thing we have to do….is humble ourselves and pray, turn from our wicked ways, and He promises to hear from heaven and “heal our land.” (2 Chron.7:14)
After about two hours of intense prayer, leaders closed with an urgent call for people of faith to pray and to TRUST GOD AGAIN. If you missed it, feel free to watch it at http://www.frcaction.org/prayercast.
