"We the People" Fast and Pray
June 12 - June 15, 2012
If the foundations are destroyed,What can the righteous do?"
When Esther's words were reported to Mordecai, he sent back this answer: "Do not think that because you are in the king's house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?"
Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: "Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish."
The foundations of our nation are being destroyed!
We have a generation of youth that are being destroyed by drugs, alcohol, irresponsible sexual behavior and abortion.
To save her people from sure destruction, Queen Esther risked her life. Before she went before the King, she sought God's wisdom and protection through prayer and fasting. Queen Esther fasted from food and water for three days. Inspired by her courage and faith in God, I will do likewise beginning at noon on June 12 through noon on June 15.
Not everyone is able to participate in such a severe fast, but each of us can give up something that we love for three days. It could be television, facebook, a food or drink, this might be a good time to stop smoking.
For the sake of our younger generation and the thousands of unborn children that are at risk from abortion I invite you to join me in asking God to bring an end to abortion in our nation brought on by neglecting the biblical principles that this nation was founded on.
I will be posting my prayers on my Morning Devotional blog and I would be honored if you would join me.
