We have an acute spiritual problem in this nation, spiritual leaders warn, that has infected not only our politics but our entire culture. Our once godly nation is rapidly sliding into a moral morass because we have looked to men, not God, and have followed other idols.
Only sincere, humble repentance within the body of Christ—turning away from the ways of the world and the flesh and seeking instead God’s purity and holiness—will trigger God’s promise to “hear from heaven, and … forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chr. 7:14).
The problems are found in every person, every family and every nation.
Repentance is neither a penance nor a punishment, but a unique privilege from the Lord to come into His kingdom (Matt. 4:17) and then into His presence to grow in His holiness (1 Pet. 1:15-16) and become overcomers (Rev. 3:19-21).
Repentance is not just an individual privilege but serves to move God’s providence for a nation through a sacred solemn assembly. Following precedent in American Christian history dating back to 1774, Wednesday will mark another National Day of Repentance.
Participation is simple. In prayer closets, Bible studies or church services, Christians at the grass roots will have, like Nehemiah, the opportunity to take time that day to confess their sins, to repent humbly and, sincerely, to “afflict their souls” for themselves, for their families, for their nation.
