According to history, the Biblical model of prayer and fasting was repeated hundreds of times in early America. In fact, on eight separate occasions during the American Revolution, the Continental Congress called the nation to a time of humiliation, fasting, and prayer and Founding Fathers who became state governors likewise called their own states to times of fasting and prayer.
The Appeal to Heaven flag was a flag commissioned by our country’s first president, George Washington before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. It is a symbol of solidarity, conviction, and encouragement to fight for liberty. (You can read more about it here: https://www.appealtoheaven.org/ ) During the American Revolution, an evergreen tree on a white standard was flown by America’s first Navy, and in all 13 colonies. The words “An Appeal to Heaven” became the decreed statement over the nation as this flag flew in battlefields and camps.
This is a big week friends. Please consider joining me in fasting and prayer for our country over the next 48 hours. Where two or more are gathered our voices are exponential.
See you at the polls on Tuesday!
Ezra 8:23 So we fasted and sought our God concerning this matter, and He listened to our entreaty.
