Support for 9/11 Day of Prayer (join in repentance and fasting)

I never dreamed when I wrote what I assumed would be a “throwaway” column last week calling for a day of national prayer and fasting on 9/11 that my plea would be met with an outpouring of enthusiastic support from thousands of people.

It clearly struck a chord.

I’ve been doing media around the clock ever since.

Pastors are telling their congregations about the plan.

Lay activists are talking it up in Bible studies.

Rabbis are writing to me expressing their support.

I secured the domain name 911dayofprayer.com, which is where you can go to express your support for the plan.

Jonathan Cahn, the author of the best-selling Christian book of 2012 and 2013, “The Harbinger,” says he’s thinks it’s a great idea. (His teaching was really the inspiration for the idea.)

And this week I was honored to learn that Rep, Michele Bachmann has issued a statement in support of the 9/11 Day of Prayer and Fasting – a statement she entered into the Congressional Record.

How’s that for an idea hatched less than a week ago that I honestly expected no one to hear?

I like what Mrs. Bachmann had to say in her statement: “For centuries America has been blessed by God. Americans today and in previous generations looked to God for guidance on both private and national designated days of prayer and fasting.

“At this time of national mourning, as we search for comfort in the aftermath of this loss of innocent life, we would be wise to consider afresh II Chronicles 7:14: ‘If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.’
