New York is the new California: Fast and Pray

God Can Do Mighty Things If We Ask

A while back, a friend from New York (who wants to remain anonymous) asked for help organizing an event. She is Christian, and wanted an event that would join Christians all across New York in prayer to change hearts. I think her approach is important.

At some point, hearts need to be changed so that truth is more easily seen.

There were many prayer events in California during the prop 8 campaign, and we saw real-life miracles. Lots of miracles, actually, leading up to the passage of prop 8 and then the CA supreme court decision.

A neutered marriage bill has already passed the NY assembly, and only five members in the senate block its passage there. [read bb’s post here] Prayer can help strengthen those who have already said they will not neuter marriage, and may change the hearts of others.

So! My friend finished the facebook event. She is asking Christians (though I would say anyone who believes in a higher and creative power) to pray and fast for marriage.

New York can use all the prayers possible, so please participate (and invite your facebook friends). The outcome in New York will likely effect many other decisions state and federal. Including the DOMA.

    For what it’s worth, it was probably a good move hiding the guest list on that Facebook events page. Wouldn’t want to have a repeat of previous NOM debacles …

    Anyway, the intricacies of social media aside, how many actual New Yorkers (as opposed to Utahns and Californians) are involved in this?

    Sorry to ruin your fun CB. What I want to know is how many expats are against it?
