Governor Lee went on to acknowledge “our rich blessings, our deep transgressions, the complex challenges ahead, and the need to pause, humble ourselves, and seek God’s guidance for the days ahead.”

President John Adams was the first to issue a proclamation for a day of prayer, humiliation, and fasting, March 23, 1798. The most recent proclamation for such observance was issued by President Abraham Lincoln on March 30 1863.

As the Lord guides you, pray with us…

  • For state governors to seek God’s guidance as they carry out their executive duties.
  • To state attorneys general and state secretaries to uphold the law and implement policies with righteousness.
  • For the President and his administration to seek the Lord and do His will.
