President Reagan renewed the call for a National Day of Prayer in 1982 and said, "The first National Day of Prayer was proclaimed in 1775 by the Second Continental Congress. As thousands gathered in prayer in places of worship and encampments throughout the new land, the dispersed colonists found a new spirit of UNITY and resolve in this remarkable expression of public faith."
Commissioner James Condon, a member of the National Day of Prayer & Fasting team, said, "God has done remarkable things in America since we began to pray and fast, but God can do greater things yet! We in Australia believe it is our turn to stand in the gap for the nation of America and pray for revival and transformation for the USA through prayer and fasting according to 2 Chronicles 7:14. Whilst America has a new administration, the need for a new National Awakening has never been more apparent."
Sue Tinworth, a member of the National Day of Prayer and Fasting team, talking about the history of prayer in the USA said, "President Abraham Lincoln, on 30 April 1863 called for a Day of 'Humiliation, Prayer and Fasting' at a time of great national crisis. This is a great encouragement to us today. Unfortunately, America is again in a dangerous predicament because it has forgotten God. Sadly the situation in Australia is very similar."
Ps Warwick Marsh, also from the National Day of Prayer and Fasting team said, "America and Australia need revival and reformation, as does the whole world. We all need more of God. We invite you and the nations of the world to join with us in four days of prayer and fasting for the USA."
