Fasting and Prayer for the USA

Recently, I realized that there are about forty days between the commemoration of Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and the eve of the forthcoming U.S. presidential elections. With the political direction of the world’s preeminent superpower in the balance—which despite some of its limitations, is still a widely godly country that continues to purport to be a Christian nation, broadly favoring the good news of salvation in Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ)—we believe that all Messiah followers have a great opportunity to fast and pray for the outcome of this election, according to the ultimate will of God Almighty.

Outreach Israel Ministries is recommending a serious time of reflection, so that we may all seek the Father’s face and plead for His mercy with fasting and prayer (Matthew 6:16-18). By imploring Him to maintain a political leadership of America that will not impede the work of advancing the Kingdom of God on Planet Earth, true Believers have a unique opportunity to put their faith into action, by humbling themselves through fasting and prayer.

For those followers of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob who consistently remember the weekly Sabbath, it just so happens that between the fast of Yom Kippur and the American presidential election, there are six weekly Sabbaths that conclude the Torah cycle and begin it anew. Many of you, especially who are concerned with the current political environment in the world at large, the Middle East and Muslim/Arab nations, and the United States, are likely among those who can be fasting and praying, to some degree, on these days separated apart to commune with the Holy One and His people. Perhaps by coming before Him with contrite hearts, the great Beacon of Freedom and Liberty, the United States of America, will continue to have God's countenance and favor shine upon it.

Yom Kippur will commence on the evening of September 25 and continue to the evening of September 26. The associated weekly Sabbaths between now and the American presidential election are: September 29; October 6; October 13; October 20; October 27; and November 3.

May the Holy One of Israel have mercy on all of His faithful people—and most especially the country, the United States of America, where a great many of them not only reside, but are able to make a difference among the masses of the planet at large!

Until the restoration of all things...
