The President Did Not Use "God" in the National Thanksgiving Proclamation

President Obama issued a proclamation for the Thanksgiving holiday without once himself mentioning the God who is to be thanked on this day.

He did manage to include a quote from George Washington that mentions God, but the president's own words were mostly devoted to thanking Indians for the beginning of this uniquely American holiday and did so with not a mention of the Divine Providence that sustained our pilgrim forefathers.

21 Days of Prayer and Fasting

On the first 21 days of 2010 the Church of God of Prophecy [and other ministries] will mobilize thousands to a time of fasting and prayer. This will be the fourth year that the call has gone out for the Church of God of Prophecy world wide to begin the year seeking God for His guidance, blessings, and power to do His will in this world. In the next few weeks we will send out 21 targets for prayer so that we can pray in unity, joining together in faith for God to bless us indeed so that we may be a blessing to lost people all around us.

Pastors, Leaders, Bishops, and Lay People we invite you to join in this Season of Seeking God on the first 21 days of January. There are many blessings that come through fasting and the Bible even mentions a few blessings that only come through seeking God in a fast. I am sure we all agree that our world needs the people of God to rise up and call on His name fervently. We will not be alone in this time of prayer and fasting. Many groups throughout many nations are declaring a time of fasting for the first days of this new year. You will not want to miss participating with others inside the Church of God of Prophecy as well as thousands beyond our ministry family as we seek God for great and mighty things this coming year.

"Call unto me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things that you do not know." Jeremiah 33:3
