I received this from WorldNetDaily and feel that it is important to pass on: Friends,
We all know the United States of America was founded in 1776, but what we often forget is that the people doing the founding were our fellow Christian believers. Our forefathers fully understood the importance of God and the role He would need to play for our nation to thrive. Unfortunately, today our country continues to distance itself from God. Our fellow citizens continually try to banish His name from schools, public landmarks, and the government. As Christians and Jews and children of God, we are called to defend His name and His people.
Several weeks ago, we reached out asking you to join us in a nationwide day of prayer on Sept. 11, 2013. As you may know, this event was conceived by Joseph Farah, founder and CEO of WND, in response to the ongoing downfall of our nation over the years. He was reminded of 2 Chronicles 7:14, which states, "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." This country is facing challenges that rival anything we have seen since the start of World War II.
WND will be reaching out to churches and religious leaders across the nation, asking that they open their doors and lead their congregants in prayer and repentance throughout the day Sept. 11. We will need your help in spreading the word to your pastors, neighbors, friends, family and others so that this day will be a success. It is our hope that people across the nation will come together and ask God’s forgiveness and blessings on our country. We hope that thousands of churches, businesses and individuals will join in and pray for the redemption and restoration of our country.
Will you join us in praying for our nation? All we need to do is follow His command and accept His promise to forgive our sin and heal our land.
