FOUNDING FATHER’S BELIEVED FREEDOM IS FROM GOD
DAY OF FASTING & PRAYER DECLARED
The King punished the colonists for the Boston Tea Party. He passed the Boston Port Act, MARCH 7, 1774, effectively closing the harbor to all commerce, intentionally ruining their economy.

Surrounding towns rallied by sending food. William Prescott, who later commanded at Bunker Hill, wrote: “Providence has placed you where you must stand the first shock…If we submit to these regulations, all is gone…” William Prescott continued: “Our forefathers passed the vast Atlantic, spent their blood and treasure, that they might enjoy their liberties, both civil and religious, and transmit them to their posterity…Now if we should give them up, can our children rise up and call us blessed?”
Upon hearing of the Boston Port Act, Thomas Jefferson led the Virginia House of Burgesses, May 24, 1774, to proclaim a Day of Fasting & Prayer, stating:
“This House, being deeply impressed with apprehension…from the hostile invasion of the city of Boston in our Sister Colony of Massachusetts Bay, whose commerce and harbor are, on the first day of June next, to be stopped by an armed force, deem it highly necessary that the said first day of June be set apart, by the members of this House, as a Day of Fasting, Humiliation and Prayer, devoutly to implore the Divine interposition, for averting the heavy calamity which threatens destruction to our civil rights.”
The King appointed Royal Governor, Lord Dunmore, was so upset by this Day of Fasting & Prayer resolution that two days later he dissolved Virginia’s House of Burgesses. Virginia’s colonial leaders went down the street and gathered in Raleigh Tavern, where they decided to form a Continental Congress, which two years later would vote for independence from the King.

The English closed down the Boston Harbor after the Boston Tea Party, and that action ruined the colonists economy.
Because of this tyranny, Thomas Jefferson declared a national day of fasting, humiliation, and prayer. A small band of godly men came together to humble themselves, pray, seek God’s face and to turn from all sin, and because of their sincere fasting and prayer; the nation of America was conceived.
They knew that only almighty God could fight for them because they were too few and too poor to overcome such odds. They trusted in God, and He fought the battle for them. Hallelujah!
While I was a missionary in Seoul, Korea, a Communist was able to get into the office President by way of voter fraud and the deception of the South Korean people.
After this man’s presidency ended; there was an investigation held about his criminal activities, and so he committed suicide.
The Christians of South Korea came to the City Hall area by the tens of thousands to pray for a Christian President. God heard their prayers, and now South Korea has an excellent, Christian President.
God honors prayer, and He especially honors the prayers of Christians who are in love and unity.
My prayer for America:
I pray that all of the Christians in America will make their churches into Houses of Prayer for all nations and for all people from the bottom to the top. Please cause all of the people of God to come together all over this country to pray in love, unity and in one accord.
Please forgive all of the Christians for our many sins, and please expose all of the evil deeds of darkness in our land, and please destroy all the works of Satan in our land. Then, we pray that You Father God will raise up your mighty standard against the evil, and the Spirit of The Lord will move mightily all over America and even the world.
May Your Name be lifted up and glorified Father God, and may all American Christians fast, prayer and lift up the Name of Jesus Christ, and He will draw all of the people to Himself. We ask these things in the all-powerful Name of Jesus Christ and for His glory.. Amen, amen and amen.
If Nineveh repented from the grass roots up to the top leaders; then America can do the same.
Countless thousands of Americans have given their lives for our freedom, and so our freedom is very precious.
We must stand strong together in love, unity and prayer to save our union.
