On June 12, 1775, the Continental Congress issued one of its first fast day proclamations when John Hancock of Massachusetts was president of Congress. Hancock, one of the wealthiest Americans of his day, was the son and grandson of Christian ministers and was personally a deeply committed Christian. But this proclamation issued by the Continental Congress over the next decade was only one of the proclamations asking states to fast, pray, and give thanks to God. Congress Asked America to Fast

Sixteen such proclamations were issued by Congress from 1775 to 1784, asking states to observe these Christian practices that God's favor might be secured in America's bid for freedom. The sixteen proclamations discussed in our book are a small portion of the thousands of pieces of evidence that demonstrate America's Christian heritage. Get your copy today!
