A Call to Cry!

By: Steve Huston

You are invited to join us at American Decency, 203 E Main St, Fremont, on Thursday, May 5, 2022 at Noon for the National Day of Prayer.

Read; can your heart hear David’s desperate plea of faith as this king after God’s own heart cries out in brokenness, remembering God’s mercies of the past and using them to further bolster his faith for his present situation. Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. (Psalm 61:1-3)

These are perilous times indeed. If we are wise, we will, like David, see them as times of brokenness and humbling; can any deny that none but God can pull us out of the miry pit America has dug for herself? Are we ready to cry out to our God? Our national sin is ever before us as those in authority uphold and “legalize” (though it is NEVER legal) abominations and atrocities, choosing to be “wise in our own eyes” instead of choosing to “fear the Lord and depart from evil.” But what of our own sin? Will we humble ourselves and pray, seek God’s face and turn from our own wicked ways (II Chron. 7:14)? Do we desire holiness of heart and life enough to pray with David to “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me (Ps. 139: 23-24)”? Will we ready ourselves to approach God by cleansing our hands and purifying our hearts (James 4:8)? Recognizing our national and personal sin, will we be sober-minded enough to “be afflicted, and mourn, and weep,” letting our “laughter be turned to mourning, and our joy to heaviness” (James 4:9)? Repentance is the “price tag” for revival; for it is then that God will “hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Are we willing to pray that God will move us to brokenness and repentance in order to give Him what He deserves and demands? We mustn’t approach this as just another National Day of Prayer. O that God would grant each of us the sincerity and urgency that David had.

Please ready yourself to join with fellow believers as we gather as a community on the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 5 at 12:00 PM. Together, we will turn to the Lord and seek His face and His hand of blessing in a time of prayer for our country.  This year’s community-wide National Day of Prayer observance will be held at American Decency Association, 203 E. Main Street, in Fremont.

Join us as we cry out to God on behalf of our government, our churches, our families, and our desperate need for a move of God upon our homes, state, and nation. Pray as we confess our sin and seek repentance. Joining with us in prayer (virtually) will be Michael Perkins, a producer of AFA’s “In His Image” and Kamal Saleem praying that families will return and remember their God in devotion and obedience to God’s Word and Spirit. Other in-person guests will include Pastor Vern and Lena Picknally, Tricia Luchies, Thom Powell from Right to Life of Michigan, and Pastor Gene Walter sharing timely scripture and prayer.  We’ll also join together to worship our Heavenly Father with music provided by Robert Azkoul. Join us as we come together on the National Day of Prayer.

Bring some friends and join us at American Decency, 203 E Main St, Fremont, on Thursday, May 5, 2022 at Noon.

 “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” James 4:10
