A Time to Fast

Joel 2:15-18

Pray to the Lord

15 Blow the trumpet at Zion.
    Call for a special meeting.
    Call for a special time of fasting.
16 Bring the people together.
    Call for a special meeting.
Bring together the old men,
    the children, and the small babies still at their mothers’ breasts.
Let the bride and her new husband
    come from their bedroom.
17 Let the priests, the Lord’s servants,
    cry between the porch and the altar.
All of them should say this: “Lord, have mercy on your people.
    Don’t let your people be put to shame.
    Don’t let other people tell jokes about your people.
Don’t let the other nations laugh at us and say,
    ‘Where is their God?’”

The Lord Will Restore the Land

18 Then the Lord cared very much about his land.
    He felt sorry for his people.

Joel 2:15-18 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

 

Friends in Christ, THIS is our time to fast and pray for our nation.

Please join us on May 5, 2016, in conjunction with National Day of Prayer, to fast 24 hours for the restoration of our nation.

There is hope the Lord will have mercy on us and restore our land. But, we must do our part. It is a time to set aside pleasure and call on the great name of Jehovah for our country. We may witness the greatest awakening of our time if we seek it with all of our hearts.

Share this with as many as you know in the family of faith!

May His will be done in our people and in our nation. Amen.
