Special Fast November 2, 2008
This November's election will be one of great significance for each one of us and our country as a whole. It is suggested that the Sunday before the election, which is November 2nd, we take the opportunity to fast for our country and the leaders who will be elected and the voters who will elect them.
Whether you are of a political persuasion or not, this year's election will be significant. I personally encourage you to learn about the people who want to lead our country and make a prayerful decision.
Whatever your professed faith may be, your faith and fasting can bring forth the powers of heaven. Please abstain from food and drink on Sunday, November 2nd and please pray for a positive outcome for righteous candidates to lead our nation and righteous propositions to pass. Pray that hearts may be softened, and that understanding and wisdom will prevail.
"Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rereward. Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am."
Should you feel inclined to pass this on to those you love I would encourage you to do so. Our fasts and prayers will make a difference and at this time, more than any other in our lifetime, our country is in need of the Lord's guidance.
