Days of Mourning, Prayer & Fasting

Today marks 1 month since the earthquake hit Port-au-Prince.  Amidst the tragedy, God is at work.  One church leader said that a wind of revival is sweeping the country.  For the first time, carnival (Mardi Gras) has been cancelled – it was to start on Tuesday.  Today, tomorrow, and Sunday have been declared a time of prayer and fasting.  Church leaders called for these days to be set aside and the government was in agreement…did we say that God is at work?! 

There was a moment of silence observed at the time the earthquake struck, 4: 53 p.m.  Today most people were not on the roads, but in churches (if they are still standing), on street corners or at home in prayer. 

Today was a day of repentance, asking God to forgive, Saturday will be a day to pray for the country and the government, and Sunday will be a day of thanking God for His mercy and grace and love.

Churches are having special services throughout the weekend.  Radio stations and TV stations are airing some of these services live. It seems that God has inspired this national three day fast.  Pray that God will answer His people with a miraculous outpouring of His love. Please join with the Haitians in seeking God's mercy Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  The only way to start the healing of Haiti is by spiritual revival.
