Back on September 27, my colleague John Stonestreet told you on BreakPoint that I would be fasting and praying for 40 days prior to the elections.

And, I have been. Have you? I want to urge you to join me in praying for our nation.
Let me remind you how this came about. I was about to address a conference in Castle Rock, Colorado, when a keen awareness came upon me that I should invite the audience to join me in fasting and prayer.
Folks, that kind of awareness does not come upon me often. I'm convinced it was the Lord.
So I invited the attendees to pray and fast with me. And I launched a Facebook page so folks could sign up to let me know that they're in. If you come to BreakPoint.org, click on this commentary; I'll link to you to the Facebook page. Or of course, you can always come to ericmetaxas.com where there's more information, and that will also link you to the Facebook page.
I cannot emphasize enough how important I think this is. As I tour the country, I speak a lot about Dietrich Bonhoeffer. In his day, Bonhoeffer pleaded with the Church to wake up-to understand the times. And he pleaded with the Church to be the Church. And being the Church means more than going to a worship service on Sunday, and it means more than believing a certain way. It means living out our faith, putting our beliefs into action.
