A Day of Fasting and Prayer

I am making today a day of fasting and prayer for the peaceful protestors who are being treated violently by their respective governments. The idea came to me as I was praying for the peaceful protestors in Ottawa who are being treated violently, and the protestors in other countries. Apparently, the local police force was not willing to do so, so Trudeau brought in mercenary police from other parts of Canada to torment and inflict violence on the truckers, their supporters, their wives, children, and animals. The mercenaries even trampled a disabled woman on a scooter (there are photos on the internet showing her and her scooter on the ground).

Canada has tried to hide it by preventing Canadians from uploading videos to YouTube and other places, but some people have their IP addresses hidden, so things get out anyway. Australia also has been doing what it can to prevent people from sharing their protests that have violent police retaliation, so little is known about what is going on there. And there are other countries where people are tired of the insanity and of the dictatorships they currently live under (which, 2 1/2 years ago, did not exist - or didn't seem to exist). Their protests are also being hidden. Media will not cover these protests, unless they give it a spin to lie about what is actually happening, but mostly mainstream media is silent.

As I saw a short video of Canadian protestors kneeling in prayer yesterday, it reminded me of the converted Lamanites who kneeled and prayed, even as their enemies came upon them and started killing them. It also reminded me of the wicked city Ammonihah, who chased out the men then killed the women and children. God destroyed that city in one day. Not one soul was left alive.

And, this morning, as I was raising my voice in prayer to God along with whoever else might be praying about this tyranny all over the planet, it occurred to me to spend the day in fasting and prayer, and I invite whoever reads this to join me. Even if you can't do it today, or you read this on another day, I invite you to join me when you can do it. If you cannot go without food, find some other sacrifice you can offer the Lord as you focus on begging God to end the tyranny that is happening in so many countries.

The ordinary man and woman are trying - have been trying for a long time now - to stand up, to change rules in their so-called free countries where the people are supposed to be the ones choosing the leaders.

I pray that the wicked leaders of these countries (and the countries that don't pretend to give freedom to their citizens) and the wicked men/women who are actually pulling the strings are destroyed by the power of God (whether they are official politicians or not), unless God can pull them down into the depths of hell in this life, so that they might repent and change, and be saved at the last day.

Please join me. Please join all of us who are fasting and praying that God will step in. 

 God goes by many names. You can be any religion at all (or no religion at all) and join in this fasting and prayer. Let's spread this all over the planet, so that millions and maybe billions of prayers are going up into the ears of the Creator of this planet.

Edit: I am fasting from food. I believe that all fasts should include water. I believe that when Jesus fasted for 40 days, he still drank water. The devil tempted him with food, not water.


  1. My heart is sad. This morning, I was feeling stress for assorted reasons, and it felt like God was telling me to read the scriptures. So I read where I had left off.

    Among other things, I read this in (Restoration Edition) Mormon 1:6 in the Book of Mormon:
    And it came to pass that the Nephites began to repent of their iniquity and began to cry even as had been prophesied by Samuel, the prophet. For behold, no man could keep that which was his own, for the thieves, and the robbers, and the murderers, and the magic art, and the witchcraft which was in the land. Thus, there began to be a mourning and a lamentation in all the land because of these things, and more especially among the people of Nephi.

    And it came to pass that when I, Mormon, saw their lamentation, and their mourning, and their sorrowing before the Lord, my heart did begin to rejoice within me, knowing the mercies and the long-suffering of the Lord, therefore supposing that he would be merciful unto them, that they would again become a righteous people.

    But behold, this my joy was vain, for their sorrowing was not unto repentance because of the goodness of God, but it was rather the sorrowing of the damned because the Lord would not always suffer them to take happiness in sin. And they did not come unto Jesus with broken hearts and contrite spirits, but they did curse God and wish to die. Nevertheless, they would struggle with the sword for their lives. And it came to pass that my sorrow did return unto me again, and I saw that the day of grace was past with them, both temporally and spiritually, for I saw thousands of them hewn down in open rebellion against their God and heaped up as dung upon the face of the land.

    And it seemed to me that God was telling me that "the slaves rising up against their masters" in Ottawa, Canada was the beginning of the end. Even though there may be (and I believe will be) those who have and will turn to the Lord and repent, it seemed I was "shown" that this is the direction North America is heading. Wars and bloodshed until the day of grace has passed, both temporally and spiritually - and an end of all nations will be the final result.

    It makes me want to cry for sadness. I hate what is going on today in this world. The United States does not resemble the United States of 20 or 40 years ago. It is a foreign nation full of insanity and violence. I hate the suffering I see, whether it's from tyrannical dictators who were voted in (or even "voted" in), or people harming each other, which they seem incredibly willing to do.

    Oh that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart, that I might go forth and speak with the trump of God, with a voice to shake the earth, and cry repentance unto every people. Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption — that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might be no more sorrow upon all the face of the earth.
    RE Edition - Alma 15:12

    1. I want to clarify that my sorrow is for everyone on the planet, not just in the United States, and not just in North America.
