A Call to Fast and Pray For Our Nation & Elections

In my humble opinion, about all has been said that can be said to make a differnce in who will be the next president of our great nation. Therefore, with that in mind I will not be posting (unless something urgent comes up) until after the polls close here in Indiana on Tuesday evening.

God can do more for what our country needs than any mere words that this humble preacher could put in a blog.

Will you join me in praying and if you choose to fast as well?

The email below comes from PrayForSarahPalin.com, but we obviously need to raise up more than just Sarah during this time.

I love all of our loyal readers and visitors, and I love our great nation,

Pastor Ed Boston aka Cyber Pastor

Please join us for a day of FASTING AND PRAYER the day before the most important election of our lifetime. So much is at stake including the Right to Life, Christian Liberty, Supreme Court Judge Appointments and National Security.

Why is it important for us to fast and pray? In the Bible, when God's people have faced a major turning point in their nation, they have fasted and prayed. Esther asked Mordecai and the Jewish people to pray for her in Esther 4:16, before she petitioned the king for her people. Daniel prayed, fasted, confessed and petitioned to the Lord in Daniel 9:4,5: "O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with all who love him and obey his commands, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws."

Most importantly, Jesus set an example of fasting and prayer for us to follow in Matthew 4 when he fasted forty days. As we set aside our time in prayer and fasting, let's remember that we walk by faith and not by sight. Without faith it's impossible to please God. While the world is watching the election polls, let's keep our eyes on the Lord and be found faithful in prayer.

God Bless You!
