I don't know these people, but I feel like this is a fantastic idea and feel like we should all unite and do this. It takes so little effort.
"DAY OF FASTING AND PRAYER FOR AMERICA
My wife and I are firmly convinced that our elected politicians are incapable of representing the will of the American people and incapable of adhering to the Constitution of the United States of America which they took a solemn oath to uphold and defend.
We are among the millions of U.S. Citizens who are at our wits end sending e-mails, faxes, telephoning, meeting with elected officials, demonstrating, rallying and hoping that those representatives will do the will of the people. They have failed. Have we, as well?
The United States of America is a choice land, a nation that was founded by our forefathers who were divinely inspired by God the Father Almighty.
This choice nation has been the defender of freedom throughout its relatively short history. We have led in the fight for freedom against many tyrants and dictators who have plundered and pilfered their citizens and have subjected them to great sufferings through blood and horror.
The people of those nations who suffered such great injustice knew that they could always depend upon the goodness, power and righteousness of the United States of America to extract them from their plights, and it was done many times over. It was not done without expense -- the expense of the blood and sacrifice of the members of our armed forces and the suffering of their families.
As the year 2009 soon comes to a close, we the citizens of the United States of America find ourselves facing many of the challenges those nations suffered at the hands of their political leaders. We are being attacked from within!
Who do we turn to? To which great nation can we turn to help us keep and maintain our freedom? We do not have the same hope of those nations to whom we were benefactors.
We MUST turn to our Savior. If we are a righteous people, we will be deserving of, and receive of His blessings as He has promised. He suffered and died for us; He atoned for our sins --each of us, individually.
We know that, as a nation, we can once again be the choicest of lands. However, we cannot achieve that blessing without our willingness to please our Lord and Savior.
We are asking that all who read this message, who have faith in Christ, designate Sunday, December 6, 2009 as a day of fasting and prayer for America.
You do not have to march on the nation's Capitol or attend a tea-bag rally. From the comfort of your home, you can get on bended knee, and with broken heart and contrite spirit, petition the Lord to bless this nation generously according to His will. Then keep the fast for that day. Make that Christlike commitment to our Heavenly Father. He will listen, He will answer. That has been promised.
"And whatsoever ye shall ask the father in my name, which is right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be given unto you." (3 Nephi 18-20) "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." (Matthew 21:22)
