My Ernest Plea
The Great American Fast Bellefonte, Pa.
My Ernest Plea a Closer Walk with Thee
Sunday, July 3, 2011 The Great American Fast was held at Lifegate Baptist Church in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. During the weekend we observed several hours of fasting, prayer, praises, and preaching. It is my ernest plea that the lives of all those attending were forever changed for the glory of God, I know mine was.
Will you join me in prayer? You know by reading my hubs I often have and include prayer in them.
LORD GOD we seek your face now, asking you God to restore America in her glory as you started her. We ask God as those on the Mayflower wrote out the Mayflower Compact God that this land preserved for a Christian nation will come back ton you Lord. We pray now God as we are celebrating 235 years as a sovereign nation today that you set your hand of mercy on this land. God if you must correct our land, if you must hand out your wrath we ask it be quick God and open our eyes open the eyes of our leaders God that they will serve you before they serve man. God we ask you convict their hearts Lord that they choose to work your will in America over serving their own pride and their own office. God I pray our president takes out the constitution and reads it and sees just how much it declares your Word and your holiness and your sovereignty. God I pray each senator, congressman, every government official stops to read these words written by our fore fathers. God I pray they see how these early pioneers of America stopped for prayer as they wrote the constitution. God I pray they see how it was a spiritual document and not a political one. God I pray that these leaders today will see the God breathed out true inspiration that was given as this document was written under. God you gave this country to Christians, you gave it so you could be glorified, so you may hear our pleas, our praises our glorifying of your holy name. God I am so grateful for what you have done in this land. God I am so thankful you gave a man the inspiration to start a fast and prayer service in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania to honor you, to pray to you for the forgiveness this country needs so greatly. Oh, God, this is my ernest plea, that you God will be glorified in all we as a nation do, that God you would silence the earth crying out, still the winds of hurricanes and tornados, stop the earth from moving in the earthquakes we see, God give us mercy from the wild fires, floods, heavy rains and drought. God we know all these disasters are occurring because we have let our voices stop, because we have sinned against you Lord and now to get honor and praise the earth itself is crying out. God my ernest plea is you quiet the earth and raise our voices that we may again praise you.God I know we had the whole host of heaven praying with us in the fast, God I know the call2fall had over one million praying July 3, 2011 for healing in this land as we prayed, fasted and preached your Holy Word, God hear our prayers, heal our land God that we may give you the glory and honor. God my ernest plea to walk closer with thee. God I pray you give us the boldness to preach and teach that a great revival will explode across this nation and millions come to know Jesus Christ as Savior. And God it is in His Holy Blessed Name I pray, AMEN.
We all gathered on Bellefonte in Lifegate Baptist Church July 2, 2011 and carried the cross through town to the park. There we had an open air preaching time from the steps of the park gazebo. Several people of the town watched as we walked the streets carrying the cross. Questions were asked and Bible tracts were handed out. Even more people in the park heard the message of salvation through Jesus Christ. Saturday evening we gathered the speakers and their families for prayer and dinner. We had a couple hours of fellowship before then retiring for the night. Sunday we again gathered at Lifegate Baptist Church. We had an hour of preaching by missionary Sam Snyder then took an hour of prayer. During this prayer we walked to the courthouse and prayed to God claiming the town for God. Then we returned to the church and listened as long time preacher Ken Codner brought a very inspiring and convicting message. Then I had the third message for an hour and then another hour of prayer. This was truly inspiring as several in attendance prayed aloud for God to restore America. Then Pastor Bill closed the service with a bold strong message of hope in America returning to the founder and creator of this land the one true almighty God of heaven.
Oh, my friends, this is my ernest plea, that America will return to God and that revival like never seen before breaks out.
