“And the Lord'S anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the Lord, was consumed. (Numbers 32:13 KJV)
The Christian Party of America (www.christianpartyonline.com) has declared January 22, 2013 as a National Day of Mourning for the Unborn to mark the 40th Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. The National Day of Mourning, January 22, will also mark the first day of a 40 Day Fast to grieve for the Unborn who have been lost over the last 40 years. One day of fasting will be done for each of the 40 years since abortion was falsely deemed a right by the Supreme Court. Each day of the 40 day fast will correspond to one of the years of abortion to grieve for those babies who were slain on that given year. The first day of the fast will be for those lost in1973 who would be 40 years old this year.
Like the Israelites who “wandered in the wilderness forty years” due to their sin against God, the United States has been suffering for its sin of abortion over the past 40 years. It is evident that since 1973 our country has deteriorated, morally, economically, and politically. That deterioration is directly related to the passage of Roe vs. Wade because the Lord will not bless a nation that commits such evil. Our country was blessed originally because our Founding Fathers protected the God-given right to Life in the Constitution. But that is no longer true in this country. By taking away the right to life for the Unborn, the Supreme Court ushered in the demise of this nation.
The Israelites after 40 years received forgiveness due to their repentance and were finally allowed to enter the Promised Land. But our country has not repented of its sin of abortion and thus we will continue to be “in the wilderness” without the Lord’s blessing. The Hand of Providence will be against us and our enemies will prevail if we as a country do not repent. The Christian Party of America joins with other 100% pro-life groups in demanding that Roe vs. Wade be overturned. By doing so, not only will our unborn children be saved but our country as well. If America will repent of the sin of abortion we could become “the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14 KJV) showing other nations what true freedom is under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
We invite you to attend our weekly conference calls during the 40 day fast that will be devoted to prayer for the Unborn and for repentance by our nation to stop this evil against God’s children. The Christian Party of America’s National Prayer Team Leader, B. Rice, provides the following exhortation for us in response to abortion. “In James 4:7 the Bible tells us ‘resist the devil and he will flee from you.’ So many of us do not know that Satan is still alive and well. In Matthew 4:10-11 Jesus says ‘be gone Satan….then the devil left him.’” Let us as Christians follow B. Rice’s teaching and pray, in Jesus’s name, that Satan will be driven out and no longer be allowed to destroy our nation through abortion.
