Answers to Prayer and Fasting, part 1

Embark with us on a powerful exploration of faith's influence on history and culture, guided by the wisdom of David Barton. Our three-part series unravels the threads of historical prayer practices, their role as spiritual resets, and the transformative power of becoming a biblical citizen. As we traverse the landscapes of time, from the fasts of biblical figures to the pious actions of American leaders, we uncover a past rich with lessons and warnings, inviting us to fine-tune our spiritual and civic engagement for a more harmonious future. Witness the profound evolution of one of America's most iconic figures, Abraham Lincoln, as personal tragedy and intellectual challenges catalyze his journey from skepticism to devout belief. This transformation underscores the necessity for Christians today to be well-equipped in apologetics, amidst the intense scrutiny from the intellectual arenas of modern academia. The narrative then shifts to dispel myths surrounding the Founding Fathers, revealing their deep-seated faith, and how it shaped the nation during its birth and through the trials of the Civil War. As we wrap up this episode, we reflect on the critical Union victories that have left indelible marks on American history. Lincoln's leadership during these times, punctuated by his calls for national fasting and prayer, exemplifies the undeniable impact of faith in guiding nations through crisis. We invite you to continue this compelling journey with us, and for a deeper dive into these transformative events, make your way to the WallBuilders Show's website. Join us as we continue to unravel the profound legacy of prayer and faith in the making of history. Support the Show.

Bridging Divides with Bishop Jim Lowe: Faith, History, and the Battle for America's Soul

As we tread the lines where faith meets the societal fabric, we we look at how today's turbulent times can be cured with the immutable truths of the Bible, the wisdom of history, and the guiding principles of our Constitution. Joining us is Bishop Jim Lowe, whose experiences during the Civil Rights Movement and the Birmingham bombing illuminate our conversation with an undeniable glow of resilience and unity. His riveting story, one of transcending hate with love and faith, echoes throughout our discussion, reinforcing our shared vision of cementing a strong foundation for the generations to come. Amid a nation experiencing an identity crisis, we confront the silent void where American flags once waved on college campuses, and we grapple with the fading echoes of our historical struggles. The critique of Israel, the erosion of our founding principles, and the emergence of a two-tier justice system prompt us to weigh the scales of social justice against those of biblical justice. Bishop Lowe's insights challenge us to consider the enduring importance of truth as the bedrock of our society, while we ponder the potential repercussions of straying from these core values. Finally, we acknowledge the critical role of pastors and faith leaders, who, like the influential figures of bygone eras, wield the power to shape politics and culture. Bishop Lowe's dynamic engagement with legislators through the Alabama Policy Institute serves as an emblematic example of the transformative influence these leaders can exert. As we engage with the creeping shadows of socialism threatening freedom of speech in America, we underscore the urgency for resources and support for the steadfast, who dare to stand strong against the tides of societal pressure.
