Nehemiah 9:1 – 9 Now on the twenty-fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, in sackcloth, and with dust on their heads.
Many people are saying that this upcoming presidential election is the “most important in our country’s history”. You may agree or you may disagree. Either way, I think that it is critical that we be in prayer for our country, it’s direction and commitment to God. We must always remember that our future is not in hands of politicians, but in the hands of the Lord.
Today’s verse states that Israel “assembled with fasting”. I would like to invite all of you to join me and Journey of Faith in a 21 day fast beginning on October 19th and ending on November 8th. The purpose is not to pray for a candidate, but rather a country. If you feel called, join us as we pray for our country, for our direction and for our ability to repent and return to the Lord. If you would like to discuss what it means to fast, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can talk.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
