January 22, 2004 - Day of Repentance, Prayer and Fasting

 

January 22, 2004 - Day of Repentance, Prayer and Fasting

"It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness...." Abraham Lincoln, 1863"

Operation Save America-Dallas will be setting aside January 22, 2004 as "The Day of Repentance, Fasting and Prayer." We are asking God - fearing Christian men and women throughout the Metroplex to take time during this day to beseech the Lord our God on behalf of the Church, the nation and our city. If you are able, please join us for solemn activities around Dallas.(Agenda is listed below)

Isaiah 58: 1 - 3; 6-12

"Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to My people their rebellion and to the house of Jacob their sins. For day after day they seek Me out; they seem eager to know My ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask Me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them. 'Why have we fasted,' they say, 'and You have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and You have not noticed?...

"...Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter-- when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?  Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.

Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and He will say: Here am I "If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.

The LORD will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land   and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings..."
