Last Friday, WND founder Joseph Farah floated the idea not really anticipating significant reaction.
Was I ever shocked, he said. By 8 a.m. Friday, by email inbox was running over with enthusiastic support for the idea, with about 1,000 people letting me know they would be participating by enlisting friends, family members, church groups, Bible studies and neighbors. They were marking the date on their calendar. Their only reservation was that the date was nearly five months away. They wanted to do something sooner.
Because of the overall response by email now from thousands of Americans, Farah is asking supporters of the idea to register their intent to participate and to help spread the plan virally.
Farahs original column pointed out that when Americas founders faced challenges, they often had the wisdom and insight to call for a national day of prayer and fasting. America is facing challenges today that, in many ways, rival anything weve seen since the start of World War II.
He has written a followup column on the idea published today. Farah laid out some of the reasons for the idea: Theres a concerted effort to redefine marriage as any union between people, regardless of sex, possibly regardless even of the number of participants in that union and possibly even regardless of the status of blood relationship between them; America continues to abort unborn babies by the millions and has now moved further in the direction of euthanasia on both ends of the life spectrum possibly even making it a matter of national, state-controlled health-care mandates; American foreign policy seems directionless, no longer with the primary concern being national security, but in fostering and fomenting change for the sake of change and breaking down the barriers of national sovereignty; Government .. ..........

DUH? It’s been around for years and years!
PRAY FOR AMERICA
AMERICANS TO UNITE AND PRAY ON THURSDAY, MAY 2ND 2013, FOR THE 62ND ANNUAL OBSERVANCE OF THE NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
And it's worked wonders!
Yes that’s true, I am just saying it is not a new idea, and this one is just around the corner so jump on in World Net Daily!
I read the article. It didn’t seem like they were “advancing” a new idea.
It was just a suggestion for 9/11/13. For me, it sounds like a rebirth of the National Day of Prayer. Obviously He isn’t listening to Mays call of prayer day.
I’m actually going to talk to my boss tomorrow about this. I will tell him about it and even though times are tough, I will ask him if he would consider shutting down the practice for the day....no pay for anyone, no financial transactions, etc. I’ll ask him if I can contact our attorney to see the legality of it (small business has much more leeway).
I will also suggest to him and contact WND for everyone participating to SHUN ALL WORLDLY things. Electronics, computers, phones, spending money. ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING that has to do with this evil world.
We know who runs it. How glorious would it be if millions of us took just ONE day to SHUN it all and devote the entire day to Him.
He may just listen. =)
