Mike Huckabee: January 20th is "A Day to Pray"
Join me for "A Day to Pray", where we will ask God to grant our leaders, from the local school houses to the White House, the wisdom they need for the road ahead. We will gather to ask God for forgiveness and healing of our land and to bless our Country and her people. This will not be a political rally but a spiritual event and hopefully one that can help bring us together as we move forward as a nation. -Mike Huckabee
"If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." -2 Chronicles 7:14
August 1, hundreds of thousands stood in line at Chick-fil-A to affirm a Christian brother's right to his personal view and the freedom to express it without being the object of economic terrorism. It was a historic moment because it was not a carefully staged PR stunt, but a viral response as people from many organizations and ministries simply urged their own constituents to participate. No one "owned" the day – each participating entity encouraged it from their own platform to their audience.
I want to propose that we join together to do something even more significant. What if on Sunday, January 20, we asked America to simply pray? Pray for our leaders and our country. This would not be a partisan or political event, but a sincere effort to ask millions of Americans to pray for our country on that day. Our leaders don't seem to be listening to us; maybe they will listen to God!
I truly believe that a day of humility, repentance, and prayer could do something that elections can't do.
A DAY TO PRAY is a spiritual event where Believers from all faiths and walks of life will join together to pray for ourselves, our families, our leaders, and our country.
I would hope that pastors would lead their churches in A Day to Pray, and that leaders would urge those in their constituency to do the same.
A Facebook event has been created at www.ADaytoPray.com for every Believer to RSVP for the event and commit to joining us for a national online Prayer Service.
