Global and national leaders, including Pope Francis, have called for a world day of prayer and fasting on September 7th. The Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation firmly believes that 2 Chronicles 7:14 is a promise for Believers today,
“If My people, who 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.”
In the same spirit of our Founders and national leaders of old, the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation is calling all Christian people of goodwill to support this historic interdenominational call for prayer, fasting and repentance on September 7th, and to encourage unceasing prayer for global and national leaders and issues.
As a reminder of our spiritual heritage, following is an excerpt from the Library of Congress,
“Congress proclaimed days of fasting and of thanksgiving annually throughout the Revolutionary War. A proclamation by Congress set May 17, 1776, as a “day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer” throughout the colonies. Congress urged its fellow citizens to “confess and bewail our manifold sins and transgressions, and by a sincere repentance and amendment of life, appease his [God’s] righteous displeasure, and through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, obtain his pardon and forgiveness.” Read more.
Man does not hold the solutions to the challenges we are facing. Our hope lies in asking for the supernatural hand of God to once again intervene in the affairs of men.
