(We at God Inspires would like to thank Australia for their prayers. There is no greater need for it than now, and having the prayers of other countries is greatly appreciated!)
General George Washington, Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, proclaimed a day of "fasting, humiliation and prayer" for May 6, 1779. He then ordered a one-day cessation of recreation and "unnecessary labor" so that his soldiers could observe the day.
236 years later, his proclamation is being answered for America by Christians in Australia.
Lana Vawser, an Australian Christian, explains: "There is a fight for the destiny of the USA right now. The destiny of America hangs in the balance. The Lord is calling His people to arise and pray for the United States of America. It is time to contend."
