Join AFA for Day of Prayer and Fasting Tim Wildmon AFA President MORE

On March 30, 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln called for a national day of prayer and fasting, in which he addressed what he called the need for "our national reformation as a whole people."

"We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God," Lincoln said, adding that it was our duty "to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness...."

How can we as Americans in 2016 do any less? AFA is joining countless churches, organizations, and individuals in calling for a national day of prayer and fasting. It is time that we, as Christians, recognize our need to repent of our own wickedness and cry out to the Lord for forgiveness - and that He might heal our broken land (2 Chronicles 7:14).

We should heed the voice of President Lincoln. He was the man who steered our nation through its greatest crisis, and he knew that God was the only one who could save us.

AFA has designated Monday, November 7, as a day when I am asking you to join me in seeking God's face. However you participate - one meal, two meals, all day - please join me and others who will be crying out for mercy.

Sign the pledge to let AFA know you will commit Monday, November 7, to a day of prayer and fasting for our nation.

Encourage your church's clergy, your fellow church family members, neighbors, friends, and relatives to join in.

Let AFA know you're committed to praying and fasting!
