Motivational Monday - Sept 11 Day of Fasting and Prayer

September 11th: A National Day of Fasting and Prayer
Candace E. Salima

Over on Facebook we were discussing the Obama Administration's decision to desecrate the memory of those who were murdered and those who died trying to save them at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Me? I am vehemently against turning 9/11 into a day in commemoration of the Green Movement. Sheesh, don't we already have an Earth Day? Anyway, the conversation went on and on until my good friend, Brian Halladay, pointed out that some take that day set aside in commemoration of those who lost their lives on September 11th and use that day as a day of fasting and prayer:

During the Revolutionary War, Congress appointed a Day of Fasting & Prayer to call upon God, and plead for His Providential aid. The fasting and prayers of three million Americans were answered as the power of God enabled them to win battles they otherwise shouldn't have won and gave them strength to defeat their enemy.

"Today, we too are in need of miracles for this great nation. We invite you to join us as we call upon God again through Fasting & Prayer on September 11, 2009, to help us secure and preserve our Faith, Family, Freedom, and for guidance to know what WE can do to protect our Nation and its inspired Constitution.

Please join us." ~ Brian Halladay

At this time, more than any other in our history, the rights and freedoms of Americans are under vicious attack from the Obama Administration and the 111th Congress. The Constitution is being dismantled and the Republic is fading away.

Americans all over have risen up and said "Enough is enough!" and demanded that Washington D.C. listen to the American people... and yet, Americans are being ignored by the leadership THEY voted into office. We have pleaded, and then demanded, for the cessation of socialism and the restoration of the Republic. And yet our enemies march on, blindly, toward the destruction of America.

Please, be you Mormon, Catholic, Baptist, Protestant, Evangelical or more...set aside Friday, 11 September 2009, for fasting and prayer on behalf of America. Spread the word across Blogland, Facebook, Twitter, Myspace ... across the land. For we need God in this battle. He has not forsaken us nor will He. We must not forsake Him or this great land.

And friends, remember, we shall not fail in this great battle. Freedom and liberty will ring across the land once again, if we but continue pushing forward. We must fight on ...

he wants to make the 11th a green day? What? How rude!

Nice thoughts. I already have it marked on our calendar.

We need all the help we can get in this free country! That's a great idea to collectively fast and pray on that day. Think of the power that would give us!

Amen and Amen !!!

I agree that Sept. 11th is a very good day for fasting and prayer.
What the hey? I had not heard that they wanted to make it a "Green Day". How dumb is that??
I have been to the site - looked down into the hole - I could never think of it as something else. That is a day no one will forget and that we should not forget or try to change!
Great post!

Having a son in Iraq for a year this day is a painful reminder of what price we need to pay for this country.
Very thought provoking, thank you.
