JOIN US ON 8.20.20

Joel a prophet from the Old Testament, writes that Israel had been ravished by a locust plague.  It had devastated the land to the point that even the fig tree had splinters and its branches had become white. The fields and grain were ruined, the wine dried up, and even the fresh oil disappeared. 

In the United States, we are seeing a devastation of our dear land. We have a virus pandemic, rioting and anarchy in the streets, a tearing down of historical monuments—and worst of all—no fear or love of God or His Word.






O Lord!

Therefore also now, saith the Lord,

turn ye even to me with all your heart,

and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

And rend your heart, and not your garments,

and turn unto the Lord your God:

for he is gracious and merciful,

slow to anger, and of great kindness,

and repenteth him of the evil.

Who knoweth if he will return and repent,

and leave a blessing behind him;

even a meat offering and a drink

offering unto the Lord your God?

Blow the trumpet in Zion,

sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation,

assemble the elders,

gather the children, and those that suck the breasts:

let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar,

and let them say,


Spare thy people, O Lord,

and give not thine heritage to reproach,

that the heathen should rule over them:

wherefore should they say among the people,

Where is their God?

JOEL 2:12-17

what shall we pray for?

The United States to repent and return to righteousness, our government, and the upcoming election.

1 Timothy 2:1-2 

Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.


Proverbs 14:34

Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.


Our churches to repent and not go into apostasy.

Jude 1:4

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 2:1-3

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Believers to repent.

Revelation 3:15-16

Revelation 3:15-16 (KJV) I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 

Titus 2:11-14 

Titus 2:11-14 (KJV) For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

The unsaved to repent and believe.

Mark 1:14-15 

Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Luke 24:45-47 

Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.



On June 12, 1873, farmers in Minnesota looked to the sky and saw what seemed like a snowstorm coming towards their fields. They heard the roar of beating wings of locusts—in a matter of hours—fields of grass and wheat were eaten to the ground by these hordes of grasshoppers. This locust plague continued on for five years. Many of these pioneer families were on the verge of starvation.

Governor John S. Pillsbury called for a statewide day of fasting and prayer on April 26, 1877.   All schools, shops, stores, and offices closed on that day. A continual stream of burdened people solemnly went to churches to pray to God for His mercy.

The next day was unseasonably warm and these starving pioneers were horrified to see these dreaded insects come out of the warm earth. How could this happen after this day of pleading with God?

God did answer their prayers.  After three days of warm weather, God brought a cold spell that froze these horrendous locusts. The next summer green fields of wheat and grass waved in the wind. Our all-powerful God again showed His strength when believers prayed on that momentous day.


Dear Believer,


Join us for a day of fasting and praying as we plead and rend our hearts in sorrow over our sin.

Send this to other Christians across the nation. We must seek God’s face!
