40 Days To Save America Fast & Prayer - Day 8

Declare the Word

1 John 4:4 “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world”

When the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, they prayed, fasted, and made a covenant that set forth the vision for America that would be for the glory to God and the advancement of the Christian faith.

The next wave of colonists envisioned America as a city set on a hill, a light to the world through the gospel of Christ.

The great patriot and founding father Patrick Henry declared it when he said, “It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded by Christians; not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

There are many modern historians who claim that Thomas Jefferson was not a Christian, yet he wrote these words inside the cover of his very well-worn Bible: "I am a real Christian, a disciple of Jesus. I have little doubt that our whole country will soon be rallied to the principles of Christianity."  

James Madison said, "Christianity is the basis and foundation of our government."

Our first President, George Washington said, "National Morality cannot be obtained in the absence of Christian principles. The smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained."

Of the first 108 universities founded in America, 106 were Christian, including the very first university in the US, Harvard, established in 1636. In Harvard's handbook were these words, “Let every student be pressed to know God and Jesus Christ, which is eternal life, and, therefore, to lay Jesus Christ as the only foundation for our children to follow the moral principles of the Ten Commandments."

In 1782, Congress voted this resolution: "The Congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools."

In 1776, when the declaration of independence was signed, 52 of the 55 men who signed it were devout Christians and immediately after the declaration was adopted, the Continental Congress approved the purchase of 20,000 Bibles to give to the American citizenry.

You see, these are our roots and the vision for the fruit God intends America to produce in her future. Our calling has not changed from God’s original destiny, but the way we run things certainly has.

Let us pray to release the power of the word and declare the victory of the Lord for our nation.

Prayer Day 8:

Lord, we remember the words You have spoken over this nation through the men and women you inspired by Your Spirit. We declare that we are a Christian nation, and cry out that you would raise up leaders that would hold to the vision that You originally planted on our shores. Restore us, Lord, for the glory due Your name.
