Glenn Beck Wants to Save America, Here’s What He Wants You to Do (UPDATE: It’s Too Late!)
There have been a million and more naysayers and doubters who have prophesied the end of America. They've come at it from a dozen different angles and have addressed the issue in more ways than you can count.
But for some reason Glenn Beck's recent call for a 24-hour period of prayer and fasting for the well-being of America is different.
Perhaps it's his tone.
Beck is, as you probably know, a former Fox News host and analyst and now the founder of The Blaze, a media conglomeration that vies with Fox News in covering conservative news. Beck is also highly religious. And he does not want Donald Trump to be president.
He's openly campaigning for Ted Cruz, a man he says will help lead America in a vital time. But his call for a fast was surprisingly non-party and non-candidate specific.
"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."
Beck's simple plea rides on a precedent he says began with George Washington. Washington was well-known as a spiritual man and once spent four hours in a prayer meeting.
According to Beck, Washington D.C. is a twisted, evil place, but that's because it is "nearly a reflection of us."
If you take the time to sit back and think about what Glenn Beck is asking for America to do, it doesn't seem as ridiculous as some other things that the conservative pundit has said.
America is a nation that was founded by Christian, God-fearing men and women. It's not too much to ask for us to pray for the well-being of this country.
UPDATE: It looks like Glenn will have to find another way to "save" America, as Ted Cruz has dropped out of the 2016 race. Better luck next time.
