TN Governor Proclaims Day of Prayer, Humiliation, and Fasting

He encourages citizens to join him in the voluntary observance.

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee proclaimed September 30, 2022, a voluntary Day of Prayer, Humiliation, and Fasting. The official proclamation called for citizens to join him in acknowledging God’s sovereignty and “the need for God’s grace over our state and our nation.”

Governor Lee continued with the acknowledgment of “our rich blessings, our deep transgressions, the complex challenges ahead, and the need to pause, to humble ourselves, and to seek God’s guidance for the days ahead.”

President John Adams was the first to issue a proclamation for a day of prayer, humiliation, and fasting, March 23, 1798. The most recent proclamation for such an observance was issued by President Abraham Lincoln on March 30, 1863.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For state governors to seek God’s guidance as they fill their executive roles.
  • For the attorneys general and secretaries of state in the states to uphold the law and implement policies with uprightness.
  • For the president and his administration to seek the Lord and do His will.
