                     Multi-State Governors Declare June 27 Day of Prayer for Gulf Coast Disaster

3 crosses-Free FotoFor all you prayer warriors out there, mark your calendars!

First of all, two days ago, on the evening of June 25, there was a conference call prayer line with the Family Research Council and the leaders of several 24/7 prayer teams, regarding the Gulf Coast Disaster...    During that same time, the Governors of Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and the Lt. Governor of Florida, declared June 27, "The Gulf Coast Disaster Day of Prayer" and have each issued a proclamation to their respective states. 

And now, the even more amazing part of the "declaration" is just how it was worded and presented! Below is the actual Declaration for the state of Florida for "The Gulf Coast Disaster Day of Prayer".

That date is tomorrow! So as you go about your days, you can be quietly, constantly praying, in whatever manner God leads you, to pray over this disaster. Or if possible, you can gather together with a group, to pray for the many needs.

And now, the even more amazing part of the "declaration" is just how it was worded and presented! Below is angel-public domainthe actual Declaration for the state of Florida for "The Gulf Coast Disaster Day of Prayer".

   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Whereas, it is our heritage that as a people we have been taught not only to publicly acknowledge God for the many blessings bestowed on us but also that we are to turn to Him and seek His aid and assistance in times of distress and calamity; and President Ronald Reagan affirmed not only that Prayer is the mainspring of the American spirit, a fundamental tenet of our people since before the Republic was founded" but also that "Prayer is today as powerful a force in our Nation as it has ever been. We as a Nation should never forget this source of strength";

President Reagan reminded us that we "have always turned to prayer at times of crisis. We recall the moving story of George Washington kneeling in the snow at Valley Forge to ask for divine assistance when the fate of our fledgling Nation hung in the balance. And Abraham Lincoln tells us that on the eve of the Battle of Gettysburg, 'I went into my room and got down on my knees in prayer.' Never before, he added, had he prayed 'with as much earnestness"; and President James Buchanan reminded citizens: "In this the hour of our calamity and peril, to Whom shall we resort for relief but to the God of our fathers? His omnipotent arm only can save us from the awful effects . . . let our fervent prayers ascend to His Throne."

President John Tyler said that "When a Christian people feel themselves to be overtaken by a great public calamity, it becomes them to humble themselves under the dispensation of Divine Providence, to recognize His righteous government over the children of men, to acknowledge His goodness in time past, as well as their own unworthiness, and to supplicate His merciful protection for the future";


. . . . . The Continental Congress declared that "in the hour of calamity and impending danger . . . we are peculiarly animated, with true penitence of heart, to prostrate ourselves before our great Creator and fervently to supplicate His gracious interposition for our deliverance."

I therefore call a Day of Prayer, urging citizens to pray comfort on the families of those killed in the initial blast; that God would crown with success efforts to stem the flow of escaping oil; that He would interpose to mitigate further damage and strengthen the hands of clean up crews; that He would sustain those whose livelihood is directly impacted by this tragedy; that He would preserve the health of citizens along the coastal regions; that He would comfort the minds of all citizens, reminding us that He is a strong refuge in times of trouble; that He would guide the counsels of our civil leaders and provide them with wisdom and Divinely inspired solutions to the many complex problems associated with this disaster; and that He would prevent future recurrences.

Wow! I didn't hear that.  Hard to believe members of our government are actually saying the "P" word.  Maybe there is hope.  I'll be Praying!

Although I fully agree with a Declared Day of Prayer for the Gulf Coast Disaster, I also know that the Lord Helps those who help themselves.  Everyone has to help.  Everyone.  And, of the day of prayer... I think it is a great idea.

Lisa - I think it's about time we put the prayer back into the vocabulary of the government and stop the politically correctness nonsense.  I believe in the power of prayer and I will pray for all the people that are affected of the Oil Spill.

AMEN and AMEN! (So Be It!)  This is not only a necessity, but it's a miracle in itself that multiple state governors came into agreement and declared this; and even went so far as to give past historical references in U.S. history, when we were called to pray! This is a huge step for this country! It's a reminder to pray for our elected officials as well!
