40-Day Spiritual Warfare Rosary for Our Nation and Its Leaders with Prayer, Fasting, and Reparation
September 24 – November 2, 2020
7:00-7:30 pm Central Time (8:00-8:30pm Eastern, 6:00-6:30pm Mountain, 5:00-5:30pm Pacific)
We all have such love in our hearts for our country. It was founded on Godly principles (“One Nation under God”) and since then most of its people have sought to live in accordance with biblical values. Sadly, many in America today are drifting away from those values and principles, seeking instead to solve their problems and chase their dreams all on their own. If our nation is to ever return to its biblical values, we need more people and churches to pray and fast on its behalf. We’re fighting a spiritual war with an enemy whose primary tactic is deception. This enemy can be defeated through the power of praying the rosary, the spiritual weapon that heaven has provided us.
In times of crises, God desires that His people examine themselves and then make reparation for everything displeasing to Him. We must make reparation on behalf of ourselves and American Christianity which has, in many ways, become largely self-indulgent and thus does not seek the Lord in holiness or wholehearted devotion. First-century Christians prayed and read the Scriptures every morning and evening and fasted twice a week. Meanwhile, American Christians spend little energy seeking God making the church community seemingly powerless.
To continue our efforts to offer Reparation to our Lord on behalf of our Nation in this time of division in the country, we are asking for willing participants who will seek God through praying the rosary and fasting. Fasting strengthens prayer and prayer strengthens our fasting efforts. Both are weak without the other. Together they are powerful weapons of protection against demons.
To aid in our efforts, the Sacred Heart Ministry will be leading a 40-day Spiritual Warfare Rosary starting Thursday, September 24 and continuing through Monday, November 2, 2020. It will be from 7:00-7:30 pm Central Time each day using Zoom as the platform. We invite everyone reading this to commit to being a part of this effort to make God more prevalent in our lives and to return Him to His rightful place in our country.
Fasting usually involves setting aside food, although we can fast from any physical appetite, be it food or abstaining from watching television or surfing the Internet. The idea is to devote the time we would ordinarily spend on these activities to prayer before the Lord. At Medjugorje Mary said, "I would like the people to pray along with me these days. And to pray as much as possible! And to fast strictly on Wednesday’s and Friday’s.” (August 14, 1984). The important thing is that you select something that is meaningful in your life and relationship with God and stick to it.
There are two reasons we need to pray and fast for our nation. First, Satan seeks our destruction. Second, we need protection from people who are being used by Satan to carry out his agenda. Therefore, when we engage the church in prayer and fasting together, we will begin the process of becoming equipped to fortify and strengthen our great land and its people against our spiritual enemy. Through a collective time of prayer and fasting, we are appealing to God who has the ability to rearrange circumstances.
In whatever way God leads you, we invite you to be a part of this effort. It is recognized that your schedule may not allow you to be available for every evening. When you can’t make it, choose a time during the day that allows you to say the Rosary and be with God and support our community in its effort to reestablish God as our nation’s Leader once again.
May God draw near and bring healing, comfort, and protection to our nation as we seek Him through prayer, fasting, and reparation.
