Is 9/11/13 prayer already prompting miracles?

Some suggest America’s sins are being laid bare

911 day of prayer, prompting miracles

SOURCE

WASHINGTON – Could prayer events in the U.S. be behind the revelation of political scandals unfolding in the nation’s capital on nearly a daily basis?

That’s what some supporters are beginning to suggest – albeit quietly.

On May 2, the nation observed its official day of prayer – one proclaimed by Barack Obama at the request of Congress. Then on May 8, a special prayer meeting in the Capitol was observed by several members of Congress and former members including House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Pastor Greg Laurie Urges Revival: ‘We Have Forgotten God but He Has Not Forgotten Us’

At the National Day of Prayer event in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Pastor Greg Laurie focused his prayer on asking for God’s forgiveness and seeking a revival for America, noting that although “we have forgotten God, He has not forgotten us.”

Pastor Greg Laurie is shown here at an evangelistic crusade. Laurie released a book and film, entitled ‘Lost Boy: The Documentary,’ detailing his troubled past and how God intervened in his life.

Laurie, who served as the honorary chairman for the National Day of Prayer Task Force, began Thursday’s prayer at the Cannon House Office Building in Washington by thanking God for blessing America as a Christian nation for so many years.

The megachurch pastor then addressed what he believes to be the “trouble in our culture today.”

“We see the breakdown of the family, crippling addictions, and random acts of horrific violence,” Laurie, who is the senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif., told the crowd of politicians, diplomats, and fellow religious leaders gathered at the annual National Day of Prayer event.

The well-known pastor recently came under fire from LGBT activists who demanded that Laurie be removed from leading the National Day of Prayer events this week due to his biblical stance regarding homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

In response, Laurie clung to his Christian convictions in the face of criticism, telling those gathered at a smaller prayer event at the Family Research Council offices in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday: “I won’t back down.”

“They do not want me to pray. They describe me as ‘homophobic’ and so forth. How can you deal with such a situation? We’re in a time in our country now where I’m attacked because I believe what the Bible teaches,” Laurie said Wednesday.

“If people want to make it all about that, I’m not going to back down. In the immortal words of the great theologian Tom Petty, ‘I won’t back down,’ I won’t. I’m not going to apologize.”

Keeping his commitment, the Southern California pastor joined fellow Christians in Washington to observe the 62nd annual prayer day.

“Lord, we need Your help in America,” he said Thursday. “In recent days, we have done our best to remove Your Word and Your counsel from our courtrooms, classrooms and culture. It seems, as President Lincoln once said, that we have ‘forgotten God.’ But Lord, You have not forgotten us! You can bless and help and revive our country again.

“Lord, in Your mercy, we ask that You would exalt our country again. We have had a number of great awakenings in America. We have experienced times of refreshing, and revivals that changed not only the spiritual but also the moral landscape,” the pastor continued, citing both Psalm 85 and Proverbs 14, which both speak on the redeeming benefits of a religious revival.

“That is our prayer for America today, Lord. Send a mighty spiritual awakening that will turn the hearts of men and women, boys and girls back to you. You have told us if we will humble ourselves and pray, and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways, that You will forgive our sins and heal our land.”

“Forgive us today, Lord, and heal this troubled land that we love so much,” he added.

Several other prominent Christian leaders spoke at Thursday’s National Day of Prayer event, including James Dobson, founder of the conservative values group Focus on the Family, and Senate Chaplain Barry Black.

Dobson, whose wife, Shirley, is the chair of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, spoke briefly on the importance of gratitude for the freedom so many Americans are able to enjoy thanks to the efforts of the country’s founding fathers.

Chaplain Black, whose speech received a standing ovation, spoke on the importance of praying for all of God’s people, saying “let us stop praying only for ourselves,” and adding that all Christians must remember to give thanks daily for God’s gifts to them.

The National Day of Prayer is a day of prayer and meditation designated by U.S. Congress and held annually on the first Thursday of May. People of all faiths are invited to pray for the nation.

Other notable speakers at the Washington prayer event included Vonette Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ International, and Rear Adm. William D. Lee of the U.S. Coast Guard, among other prominent congressmen and religious leaders.

Greg Laurie to Gay Activists: ‘I Won’t Back Down’

California megachurch pastor involved in the National Day of Prayer who has recently come under fire for his views on homosexuality has declared that he will not be intimidated.

Evangelist Greg Laurie, who is scheduled to lead the nation in prayer at events …

At a prayer event held Wednesday morning at the Washington, D.C., office of the Family Research Council, Pastor Greg Laurie told those gathered, “I won’t back down.”

“They do not want me to pray. They describe me as ‘homophobic’ and so forth. How can you deal with such a situation? We’re in a time in our country now where I’m attacked because I believe what the Bible teaches,” said Laurie, ahead of Thursday’s National Day of Prayer.

“If people want to make it all about that I’m not going to back down. In the immortal words of the great theologian Tom Petty, ‘I won’t back down,’ I won’t. I’m not going to apologize.”

Laurie paralleled the efforts of gay rights activists to that of the palace officials who sought to stop Daniel (in the Old Testament) from praying and passed a law that resulted in him being thrown into the Lion’s Den.

“Here is something that we need to learn from that. The Devil does not want us to pray. It’s been said that Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees,” said Laurie. “I’ve had people try to stop me from praying this week. And we have these activist homosexual groups who have alerted their people to petition the Pentagon.”

The main focus of Laurie’s speech was on the subject of prayer, which was in keeping with the theme of the FRC event. Among the points made was that it does not matter where one prays, so long as it was with a sincere heart.

“God did not hear the prayer of the pharisee. Why? Because the Bible says Jesus speaking, ‘he prayed thus with himself,'” said Laurie.

“Prayer is the movement of our heart towards God and the main thing is we need to pray because you could pray in any position, anytime, anywhere … it does not matter where you pray, the main thing is just pray.”

In recent days, LGBT organizations like the Human Rights Campaign have demanded that government officials bar Laurie from leading National Day of Prayer events in the nation’s capital this week.

“Pastor Laurie’s message is out of step with what the majority of people of faith across this country believe,” said Dr. Sharon Groves, director of HRC’s Religion & Faith Program. “In greater numbers than ever before, people of faith are feeling compelled to speak up and organize for equality – because of their faith.”

This is not the first time gay activists have attempted to get clergy opposed to homosexuality removed from a major national event. In January, LGBT activists successfully got the Rev. Louie Giglio of Passion City Church in Roswell, Ga., to withdraw from saying the closing prayer at President Barack Obama‘s second inauguration.

Laurie’s remarks came at an event sponsored by FRC titled “The National Day of Prayer Task Force Men’s Prayer Meeting.”

Other speakers at the event included a couple Christian businessmen, FRC Vice President for Church Ministries Dr. Kenyn Cureton, and John Bornschien, Vice Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force.

Obama cleanses Day of Prayer of Christianity

‘Regardless of religion or creed,’ says proclamation

SOURCE

Tens of thousands of local events are scheduled tomorrow to recognize the 2013 National Day of Prayer.

A special observance is scheduled from 9 a.m. until noon in the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill as a focal point for the local assemblies at churches, courthouses and other public places.

Meanwhile, a privately sponsored National Day of Prayer and Fasting is being planned for Sept. 11.

Today, President Obama issued a statement endorsing the National Day of Prayer, but he excised virtually any reference to Christianity, the primary faith of the nation’s founders.

President George W. Bush’s proclamations routinely included references to Christian faith.

“By surrendering our lives to our loving Father,” Bush said in his 2008 statement, “we learn to serve His eternal purposes, and we are strengthened, refreshed, and ready for all that may come.”

Bush’s comments also included references to the Bible. He cited Psalm 28:7, which states, “The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.”

Bush also said, “According to Scripture, ‘the Lord is near to all who call upon Him. … He also will hear their cry, and save them.’”

Obama emulated some of those ideas in his first proclamation, in 2009, citing the prayers of the Continental Congress and President Lincoln’s call for prayer during the Civil War.

But he started turning the next year, mentioning “God” only twice, asking for “blessings” and “guidance.”

The closest reference to the nation’s Christian heritage was a reference that the U.S. “counts freedom of conscience and free exercise of religion among its most fundamental principles.”

By 2012, Obama’s proclamation was giving thanks “for our democracy that respects the beliefs and protects the religious freedom of all people to pray, worship, or abstain.”

This year, his text includes “faith” only to reference it as “our faith” and recognizes “God” only for delivering liberties and guidance. The nation’s Christian heritage is referenced only in his statement that “the earliest settlers prayed that they would ‘rejoice together, mourn together, labor, and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work.”

“Regardless of religion or creed, Americans reflect on the sacredness of life and express their sympathy for the wounded, offering comfort and holding up a light in an hour of darkness,” said the president.

Obama’s text:

Americans have long turned to prayer both in times of joy and times of sorrow. On their voyage to the New World, the earliest settlers prayed that they would “rejoice together, mourn together, labor, and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work.” From that day forward, Americans have prayed as a means of uniting, guiding, and healing. In times of hardship and tragedy, and in periods of peace and prosperity, prayer has provided reassurance, sustenance, and affirmation of common purpose.

Prayer brings communities together and can be a wellspring of strength and support. In the aftermath of senseless acts of violence, the prayers of countless Americans signal to grieving families and a suffering community that they are not alone. Their pain is a shared pain, and their hope a shared hope. Regardless of religion or creed, Americans reflect on the sacredness of life and express their sympathy for the wounded, offering comfort and holding up a light in an hour of darkness.

All of us have the freedom to pray and exercise our faiths openly. Our laws protect these God-given liberties, and rightly so. Today and every day, prayers will be offered in houses of worship, at community gatherings, in our homes, and in neighborhoods all across our country. Let us give thanks for the freedom to practice our faith as we see fit, whether individually or in fellowship.

On this day, let us remember in our thoughts and prayers all those affected by recent events, such as the Boston Marathon bombings, the Newtown, Connecticut shootings, and the explosion in West, Texas. Let us pray for the police officers, firefighters, and other first responders who put themselves in harm’s way to protect their fellow Americans. Let us also pray for the safety of our brave men and women in uniform and their families who serve and sacrifice for our country. Let us come together to pray for peace and goodwill today and in the days ahead as we work to meet the great challenges of our time.

The Congress, by Public Law 100-307, as amended, has called on the President to issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a “National Day of Prayer.”

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim May 2, 2013, as a National Day of Prayer. I join the citizens of our Nation in giving thanks, in accordance with our own faiths and consciences, for our many freedoms and blessings, and in asking for God’s continued guidance, mercy, and protection.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-seventh.

BARACK OBAMA

Coinciding with the National Day of Prayer, a 72-hour international call to repent, fast and pray has been called by Christians in Australia for April 30 to May 2, according to Breaking Christian News.

See the stunning DVD documentary “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” and the book on which it is based, “The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret for America’s Future.”

In asking for support for the 9/11 National Day of Prayer and Fasting, organized by WND CEO Joseph Farah, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., entered a statement into the Congressional Record.

She pointed out that the future of a nation appears to be up to Christians.

“I join together with other Americans who have called for September 11, 2013, to be set aside as a day for personal prayer, reflection and fasting, for ourselves and for our nation,” Bachmann said in a statement. “At this time of national mourning, as we search for comfort in the aftermath of this loss of innocent life, we would be wise to consider afresh 2 Chronicles 7:14: ‘If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.’ As we humble ourselves and pray and seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways, we can take assurance from the Holy Scripture that God has promised to hear from heaven, will forgive our sin, and will heal our land.”

Jonathan Cahn, the No. 1 bestselling Christian author of 2012 and 2013 with “The Harbinger,” also is on board for the September event.

So is Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Fellowship, known for massive evangelistic events that fill the largest stadiums and arenas in the country. He is also a weekly faith commentator for WND and the honorary national chairman of the 62nd annual National Day of Prayer called for May 2. The organizers of the May 2 event have pledged to shift their attention to the 9/11/13 project after May 2.

“If we pray, God will hear,” Laurie said. “When He hears, who knows what He might do?”

In his column on WND, Chuck Norris said: “If the greatest leaders in the history of our country, particularly our founders, called upon the Almighty for heavenly assistance in the most critical and perilous of times and experienced His hand of deliverance, wouldn’t this season in our country’s history warrant exactly the same? Maybe more now than every before?

“Because of the intense strongholds we face as a nation, WND Editor Joseph Farah and thousands of others across the land are calling up America’s spiritual reserves, challenging our spiritual fervor and cranking up our spiritual warfare by also declaring a National Day of Prayer and Fasting – and on what better day than Sept. 11, 2013?” he continued. “You can register your intent to participate and help spread the plan virally by going to 911DayofPrayer.com.

Farah’s action plan:

  • Make a note on your calendar now to join in the commitment to participate;
  • Help spread the word to the remnant of Americans who understand what the nation is up against on Facebook and Twitter and by word of mouth;
  • Talk to pastors and Bible study leaders and get them on board;
  • Pray daily for believers across the nation to take serious the promise of II Chronicles 7:14 and follow its prescription;
  • Sign up to register your commitment of support and your intention to participate.

“We’ve got our instructions,” said Farah of II Chronicles 7:14. “God is waiting on us to act – His people. He’s not waiting on the whole world to act. He’s not waiting on a majority of Americans to act. He’s waiting on us – his children, his followers, his believers.”

Norris quoted Benjamin Franklin’s call for God’s leadership at the 1787 Constitutional Convention:

“I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth – that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that ‘except the Lord build the House they labour in vain that build it.’ … I therefore beg leave to move, that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this assembly every morning before we proceed to business…”

Prayer for America goes global

There already are plans for a National Day of Prayer on May 2, as well as a a National Day of Prayer and Fasting on Sept. 11 and a coming day of repentance.

But now the hope that the U.S. will recognize its sins and return to the God of its Founders is going global.

According to Breaking Christian News, the national day of prayer team in Australia is offering encouragement to Americans.

In addition, the International House of Prayer is pushing the campaign on its website, which reaches readers in 130 nations.

The plans call for people to set aside “time with the Lord” in local churches and homes during a 72-hour window, April 30-May 2.

Repentance, fasting and prayer will be the focal points.

And the goal, BCN reported, is “for the United States to return to its earlier dependence on God.”

Explained the BCN report: “April 30 is an appropriate day for repentance. The legislature in Pennsylvania has designated April 30 as its day of fasting and prayer. And April 30 marks the 224th anniversary of President Washington’s inaugural remarks thanking God for His miracles in founding America.

See the stunning DVD documentary “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” and the book on which it is based, “The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret for America’s Future.”

“April 30 also is the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln’s ‘National Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer’ in the midst of the despair of the Civil War. Issuing the proclamation, Lincoln said in part: ‘We have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray in the God that made us. It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to prayer for … forgiveness.’”

April 30 is scheduled to be the National Day of Repentance. And the U.S. National Day of Prayer will be May 2.

In asking for support for the 9/11 National Day of Prayer and Fasting, organized by WND CEO Joseph Farah, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., entered a statement into the Congressional Record.

She pointed out that the future of a nation appears to be up to Christians.

The organizers of the May 2 event have pledged to shift their attention to the 9/11/13 project after May 2.

“If we pray, God will hear,” Laurie said. “When He hears, who knows what He might do?”

Laurie said the nation needs much prayer, not just a single event.

“As this year’s honorary chairman of the National Day of Prayer I support WND’s 9/11/13 National Day of Prayer and Fasting. I agree with Joseph Farah that America faces a spiritual crisis and there is nothing more effective we can bring our requests to God,” Laurie said. “In Scripture, God tells us ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ (Jer 33:3)”

Laurie, like Farah, notes that in times of crisis, the U.S. frequently has called on God. The Scripture chosen for this year’s event is Matthew 12:21, which says, “And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.”

Farah’s action plan includes the following:

  • Make a note on your calendar now to join in the commitment to participate;
  • Help spread the word to the remnant of Americans who understand what the nation is up against on Facebook and Twitter and by word of mouth;
  • Talk to pastors and Bible study leaders and get them on board;

America plans to bend knee before God

SOURCE

Time and again in the history of the United States, when the nation faced need or crisis, America’s leaders have called upon the country to turn to its surest hope in darkened days: to bend its knees before Almighty God.

From 1775, when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation, to President Lincoln’s proclamation of a day of “humiliation, fasting and prayer” in 1863, national prayer has been a rich part of American history.

And in the spirit that prompted President Truman in 1952 to establish a National Day of Prayer and President Reagan in 1988 to designate it as the first Thursday in May, Americans across the fruited plain will participate together again on May 2, 2013, in the annual National Day of Prayer.

“As our nation struggles with continued economic insecurity, vast health-care reform and countless challenges to our constitutional rights, citizens of the United States are preparing to exercise their freedom to gather, worship and pray,” announces the National Day of Prayer Task Force on the event’s official website. “Millions will answer the call to prayer on May 2nd in observance of the 62nd annual National Day of Prayer. Organized events will be held in thousands of public venues where intercession will be made for America and its leadership.”

This year’s theme is “Pray for America,” based on Matthew 12:21, which asserts, “In His Name the nations will put their hope.”

Task Force Chairman Shirley Dobson, wife of Family Talk founder Dr. James Dobson, has said, “The American people continue to be plagued with challenges that defy simple answers, and our hope lies in humbly seeking the Almighty’s guidance, protection and blessing – not only on the National Day of Prayer, but throughout the year.”

Local prayer events will be held throughout the country on May 2, and the task force has established a website for finding and organizing nearby prayer rallies.

Furthermore, Senior Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship and Founder of Harvest Crusades Greg Laurie will lead a team of prayer warriors with a keynote address on May 2 in Washington, D.C., to be held at the Cannon House Office Building.

Pastor Laurie’s address, furthermore, will be broadcast live through a partnership with GOD TV, available to millions of viewers in more than 200 countries, as well as on DirecTV channel 365 and streamed live on the National Day of Prayer website.

Joining Laurie in the broadcast will be Chairwoman Dobson, Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Ala., Vonette Bright, wife of Campus Crusade for Christ Founder Bill Bright, WND columnist Pat Boone, Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., Wintley Phipps, U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black, The Annie Moses Band, Dr. Dick Eastman, David Butts, John Bornschein and more.

“We have lost many of our freedoms in America because we have been asleep,” Dobson insists. “I feel if we do not become involved and support the annual National Day of Prayer, we could end up forfeiting this freedom, too.”

The event marks one of several calls sent across the nation to see the church in America return to God in fulfillment of 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Sept. 11, 2013, for example, has been set aside as a national day of fasting and prayer to seek healing and restoration.

“A nationwide day of prayer, fasting and humility can have an enormous impact on restoring our country,” declare organizers of the event. “Imagine thousands of churches opening their doors to millions of worshippers who heartily confess their sins, seek forgiveness and pray for salvation and redemption and the restoration of our country.”

Discover how you can support and participate in the Sept. 11 national day of prayer and fasting!

“This is a matter between God and His people,” organizers state, referencing 2 Chronicles 7:14. “We’ve got our instructions. God is waiting on us to act – His people. He’s not waiting on the whole world to act. He’s not waiting on a majority of Americans to act. He’s waiting on us. Will we follow His command and accept His promise to forgive our sin and heal our land?”

“Many people have been asking me about doing something even sooner than 9/11,” stated WND CEO and event organizer Joseph Farah. “The National Day of Prayer is on May 2. I urge participation in that event as a momentum-builder for 9/11. The fact of the matter is we need time to alert believers across America about this important opportunity to humble ourselves before God and ask His forgiveness for our sin.”

WND has also spearheaded a nationwide effort to re-introduce Americans to the Ten Commandments and awaken both believers and non-believers to the evil that abounds in America.

Billboards declaring “Thus Saith the Lord” have been popping up all over the nation, placing on notice first Las Vegas, then Nashville, Jacksonville, Los Angeles and more how to behave according to God’s rules: the Ten Commandments.

See a Nashville sign:

Nashville billboard on Harding Ave. in front of Barleycorns

And here is an image from Las Vegas:

Ten Commandments billboard near the Hard Rock Cafe on Paradise Road in Las Vegas

Farah is erecting Ten Commandments billboards all over the country, and he said with the help of donations, hundreds of billboards can be placed.

“The purpose is to remind the public of the moral law to which all people are accountable whether they like it or not,” said Farah. “America needs a set of social common denominators if we are to remain a self-governing society. No such document has ever been produced by the hand of man. For 3,000 years, empires have come and gone based on their adherence to the Ten Commandments. Millions of people have perished or been brought to salvation by God’s teachings about right and wrong. That’s what this campaign is all about – and I pray Americans will respond in partnership with me in dramatic style.”

You can support the Ten Commandments Billboard Campaign by with your financial donations in any amount or in helping to sponsor outdoor advertising in your own community.

“The problem is America is not limited to atheists, agnostics, cults and non-believers,” says Farah. “In fact, the biggest problem America has is with those who call themselves believers but who act no differently than the worldliest individuals on the planet. You can call these people backslidden. You can call them false converts. Or you can call them undiscipled, nominal believers. What they all have in common is they are not in obedience to God. They are not even trying to follow the most basic moral law, as Jesus and the prophets all instructed.”

America has never needed a campaign like this so badly, he says.

“The Ten Commandments have been banished from our schools,” says Farah. “They’ve been banished from our courtrooms and law schools. They’ve even been banished from some of our churches and synagogues. Look what has become of America since. Maybe it’s time to roll them out on highways and byways, in big cities and small towns so no one is without excuse as to the moral code the One True God gave us to govern ourselves.”

Farah and WND are providing seed money for the launch and publicity and hope that Jews and Christians alike – all worshipers of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – will donate money to the campaign to erect the messages on public billboards from coast to coast.

“I don’t know what the result will be,” says Farah. “But I know America badly needs a reminder of who guides the universe and the affairs of men and what He requires of us all. Americans need awareness of their sins before they can repent of them. And until we repent of our sins, America’s fate has been cast to the wind. America needs the Ten Commandments.”

You can donate to the campaign online at the WND Superstore or write checks to WND with a notation “Ten Commandments campaign.” Checks can be sent to WND.com Inc., 2020 Pennsylvania Ave, N.W., Suite 351, Washington, D.C. 20006.

If you’d like to learn how to sponsor a billboard in your community, email tencommandments@wnd.com.

“If you’re concerned about the future of America, heed God’s word in II Chronicles 7:14,” says Farah: “It says, ‘If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.’ But if we don’t understand our sin, which is defined by the Ten Commandments, how can we turn from our wicked ways? And how will God hear us? And how will He heal our land?”

Contact WND to help support the campaign to post the Ten Commandments throughout America.

WND believes the Ten Commandments are the glue that hold society together. If they are forgotten or dismissed or ignored, America will cease forever from being a self-governing nation, as our Founding Fathers intended.

  • “We might come closer to balancing the budget if all of us lived closer to the Commandments and the Golden Rule.” – Ronald Reagan
  • “One of the great questions of philosophy is, do we innately have morality, or do we get it from celestial dictation? A study of the Ten Commandments is a very good way of getting into and resolving that issue.” – Christopher Hitchens (noted atheist)
