Topic: America and Prayer.
Throughout America’s history, many times there have been calls for prayer. Even Thanksgiving is a day delegated for national thanksgiving to God. Here’s an example of the Continental Congress from March 16, 1776 calling for a national day of “humiliation fasting, and prayer, “that we may with united hearts confess and bewail our manifold sins and transgressions, and by a sincere, repentance and amendment of life, appease his righteous displeasure and through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, obtain his pardon and forgiveness; humbly imploring his assistance to frustrate the cruel purposes of our unnatural enemies.” This prayer proclamation was signed by John Hancock. Dave Kubal is the president of Intercessors for America, a group dedicated to mobilizing prayer warriors around the country to pray for our nation. Dave Kubal joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the history of prayer for our nation, including ongoing efforts to continue this tradition. www.ifapray.org
