Pray and Fast for our Country

I sent out an email about a nice idea someone has that on the 3rd of November we all fast and pray for our elections and the process of them. I know not everyone is highly religious so this might sound a little different. But it really is a matter of focusing on softening hearts and tuning in to what is important and what is best for the country over all. This morning I actually had a minute before getting our little one up and read this:
". . . for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this
kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. " (Matthew 17:20-21)
Very timely thought for the morning.
For me in my life, fasting and praying/meditating has been a very strengthening and calming act. No matter what you're affiliation(s), it's a positive thing.
Have a great day!
