Other Nations Join in Prayer and Fasting for USA

The National Day of Prayer and Fasting in Australia called for 72 hours of prayer and fasting for the USA from April 30–May 2, 2013 (the annual U.S. National Day of Prayer). The call was for Australia, New Zealand, and the nations of the world to stand with the USA in their hour of need, with a focus on prayer to help turn the tide of family breakdown, crippling addictions, increasing immorality, and random acts of horrific violence.

According to organizers, “The reality is that it was American men who shed their blood that saved Australia from invasion from the Japanese during the Second World War. The battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942 sank many Japanese ships and troop carriers at great cost to American life. Even though that battle was lost, the war was won as a result. Many nations of the world have much to thank the USA for because of their past and present sacrifices for freedom.”

A prayer written by David Rowsome reads in part, “And so America, we thank God for you and pray for the healing of your wounds, the mending of your divisions, and the restoration of your foundations. We pray that God will prosper you and bless you so that you may continue to fulfill your destiny as a blessing to the nations of the earth.

“America, through all your sufferings, may you never cease to hope and trust in God! America, in these desperate days, may you always look to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as your Redeemer!

“America, when this time of testing has passed, may you, by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, come forth as gold, even much pure gold! And when God heals and restores you, will you pray for us as Job ‘prayed for his friends’ (Job 42:10)? Please forgive us, America, for our indifference and apathy to your suffering and our failure to pray for you as we ought. Pray for us that we too will fulfill our destinies as nations under God as together we trust in Him. And we will sing with you songs of the blessing of God.”
