H. RES. 790 National Day of Personal Reflection & Repentance

For the first time in forty three years members of Congress in the United States have submitted a bill that calls for a day of repentance in this nation.  Congressman Doug Lamborn of Colorado, Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler of Missouri, and Congressman Trent Franks of Arizona have submitted Resolution 790 to the House of Representatives expressing support for the designation of July 2, 2016 as the “National Day of Personal Reflection and Repentance.”

Pray now for God’s miracle for this bill now in committee to be passed by the House in the short time remaining before recessing this weekend. 

The text of the Resolution House Resolution 790 is a powerful lesson in United States Christian history. John Adams said that July 2, [was the actual day independence voted upon in 1776], “ought to be commemorated as a day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.”

Submitting the Resolution for a vote in and of itself is a victory.   Many of you have been praying that personal and national repentance would be re-discovered as God’s method to heal a nation.  God has heard those prayers.  One mighty step in His direction. We have breached a wall of ignorance and indifference thanks to the Holy Spirit! 2 Chronicles 7:14 is as alive as ever.   May this Resolution awaken other Christian leaders in government  in this and in other nations to the awesome power of repentance not just to bless every soul but also to heal a nation.

A National Prayer Request

78629508-c20b-4ef8-adbd-7a9a031fa13d

Consider taking an hour this month in May to really dedicate to personal and individual prayer for the Nation. You may have already heard that we are “covering the calendar” in prayer by challenging many in our Region to one or more hours this month. You can sign up for an hour on our calendar.  For more information about this prayer initiative email us at info@azndp.org.

If you can’t commit to an hour, take some extra time this month to pray and consider adding fasting.  If you are looking for some ways to pray this month, check out the prayer resources on the nationaldayofprayer.org website.
