Australian Prayer leaders from the Canberra Declaration are calling for a Global Day of Prayer & Fasting on Wednesday 11 November 2020 for the USA. Australia and the nations of the world will pray for USA to return to its historic Christian foundations.  This date marks the 400 Year celebration of the Pilgrim Fathers’ first landing on American soil at the site of “Provincetown” and the signing of the Mayflower Compact which reads as follows.

“In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten… Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith, and the honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another; covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation… unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.

In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, 1620.”

Warwick Marsh from the Canberra Declaration in Australia was inspired by John Robb, the Chairman of the International Prayer Council, based in New Mexico, USA. John was sharing about the many inspiring prayer initiatives currently happening in the USA.

One of those exciting prayer initiatives is the call for Prayer, Fasting & Repentance on the 11 November 2020 called:  11-11 JESUS One Hour, One Day, One Explosive Moment in Time. Watch the video here:

To quote from the website, “Call America to a fast. There must be repentance and there must be unity. America must repent like Nineveh, or America will cease to exist… The world will be watching, and they will see that I AM who I say I am and how I respond to the cries of my children.”

Of course the backdrop for this prayer call is the so-called “stolen presidential election”. Many commentators are questioning the 4AM Biden voter dump. Even now the Pennsylvania case is before the Supreme Court. Our focus for our prayers is not primarily the election (although we encourage prayer for the same, and prayer for justice to be done and the truth to be exposed)  but our main prayer is that the USA return to  its historic Christian foundations as laid out by the Pilgrim Fathers 400 years ago at Cape Cod on 11 November 1620.

We are asking that this Wednesday, 11 November 2020 be observed as a Global Day of Prayer, Fasting & Repentance for the USA.

I also want to recommend to everyone reading the comments, as soon as you can get hold of a book called “shaping history through prayer and fasting” by Derek Prince. This book changed Lou Engles life back in the 80’s and it has recently changed mine. Blessings in Christ Jesus.

I have been fasting one day a week for the past few months and today happens to be my day! I’m honored to fast with my brothers and sisters in Australia and I’m touched by their heart for our country and it’s Godly roots. I agree with your prayers from GA!

FATHER GOD YOU are the same yesterday, today, and forever! Hear our prayers and save us from our enemies in JESUS Name! I pray this prayer of Nehemiah over the United States and All Americans that call JESUS LORD:

Nehemiah 1:5

I beseech thee, O Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:

6 Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father’s house have sinned.

7 We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.

8 Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:

9 But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.

10 Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

11 O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy. In JESUS Name! Amen!

My Father in heaven, I kneel before you and bow my head to humbly ask for forgiveness; forgive our sins of our Nation, we have forgotten you, we have been proud of ” our own doings”. We plea for mercy on our Nation, to bring about a National movement of prayer, repentance and obedience to Your laws; Father hear the prayer of your children, In Jesus name, Amen..

” quoting John Wesley who understood the power of prayer to obtain God’s mercy”: He wrote, ” Have you any days of fasting and prayer? Storm the throne of grace, and persevere therein, and mercy will come down.

Thank You Father GOD for awakening your children not only in the USA but throughout the world to the desperate and urgent need of fasting and prayer.
Thank You LORD, for drawing us close to Your Throne of Grace to receive help in time of need.
Open our eyes Father GOD that we may see Your hand at work, and open our ears that we may hear the whispers of Your Holy Spirit
Melt our hearts Father GOD, that we would no longer lean on our own understanding, but gladly do YOUR will.
Guide us all O Great Jehovah through this pilgrim land.
WE are weak but Thou art mighty hold us in Your powerful hand.
Precious JESUS, You ever live to make intercession for each of us. THANK YOU, LORD!
Cause us to walk in Your ways Father, and to live lives that bring glory to Your Name. Amen.
The battle is yours, LORD, help us each to know our place and to do our part. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Praise the Lord that our brothers and sisters around the world are joining us in prayer. I pray also for spirit of unity here among the Believers in this country, to unite in prayer and to stand for Truth. Praying for the Holy Spirit to touch Lord’s people to wake up.
Psalm 133
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious oil upon the head,
Running down on the beard,
The beard of Aaron,
Running down on the edge of his garments.
It is like the dew of Hermon,
Descending upon the mountains of Zion;
For there the Lord commanded the blessing—
Life forevermore.

Father, bless our brothers and sisters from around the world who join with the Ekklesia of the USA to pray for your will to be done, your light to shine, and your Spirit to be poured out upon this land.

May the USA continue to be the leader in the free world, a source of missionaries and generosity, and land of the free and the brace.

In the name of Jesus, we pray – amen.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Yes, I will join this call to pray and fast on Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2020, with the intent for our nation to re-align itself with God and the Christian faith expressed by our Pilgrim forefathers 400 years ago.
