Glenn Beck, former Fox News host and the founder of Blaze media products, called on America to join him for a fast in the lead-up to the presidential primary.
He’s spreading the word with the Twitter hastag #Tuesdayfast.
In a Facebook post, Beck wrote: “I have asked for this in the past and was mocked. It is okay. I would like to ask that you, your family and friends join me for a day of prayers, fasting and humility. To beg the Lord to not remove His hand from us. To turn to Him and ask that He will heal our land. Beginning Monday night and running for 24 hours ending on Tuesday will you pray and if possible fast like you have never done before?”
Beck began his post by telling the story of George Washington who, in 1789, “raised his right hand and placed his left on the Bible which had been opened randomly to Genesis 49 … then walked a few blocks to attend a service … and spent four hours in prayer and made a covenant with God.”
He then wrote that America is now “shunning God,” and would soon face His judgment.

“We are shunning God, now openly mocking Him. We have chased Him from our public spaces and conversations, His laws are not recognized anymore in most of our courtrooms, schools, business’ nor our homes and not only can we as a people not name the basic ten laws of God, we break them as individuals and as a nation on a regular basis,” he wrote.

He then went on: “We have become lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, and haters of good. We wonder why our nation is in trouble. It has nothing to do with DC as they are nearly a reflection of us,” he said.
And he asked: “Have you ever seen an election like this before? … America is at a cross roads. … Tuesday Indiana is making its choice. All will be counted. It strikes me as an important ‘coincidence’ that the election will be held just a few days after the anniversary of the original covenant. … Let us renew our covenant with Him and as George Washington did and humbly seek his face, guidance and protection. Please help spread the word. #Tuesdayfast.”
