Why November 11th ?
Proclamation of His people, called by His Name, Declaring a National Day of Prayer, Repentance, and Refreshing of the Mayflower Compact, in these United States of America,
November 11, 2022
WHEREAS, on November 11, 1620 pilgrims on the ship Mayflower, seeking, for the Glory of God, to worship God freely, and to plant a colony to advance the Christian faith, entered into the Mayflower Compact; and
WHEREAS, the text of the Mayflower Compact reads as follows:
In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, defender of the Faith, etc.:
Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith, and the honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another; covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, 1620.
WHEREAS, for their faith, purpose, and courage the Living God blessed the Pilgrims and blessed this nation for many generations, as many of our forefathers, honoring God's Word, continued in our "civil body politic" to honor and depend upon Him; and
WHEREAS, instead of advancing the Christian faith as set forth in the Mayflower Compact, over generations since the Pilgrims, persons failed to follow God's Word, thereby causing great damage to others, destroying any Christian witness, especially to the first nations in this land;
WHEREAS, now in this nation many have forgotten, or have never heard about, or even blatantly reject, the Living God Who blessed the Pilgrims and this nation; and
WHEREAS, as a result, this nation now faces chaos and disorder, a moral and physical pestilence, endangering the entire republic, allowed by the Living God, based on His Word in 2 Chronicles 7: 13: "When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people;" and
WHEREAS, the Lord's Word in 2 Chronicles 7: 14 gives us His Solution to bring believers in His nation back to Him and to heal a nation, namely, " if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land; " and
WHEREAS, Godly roots in any nation need to be watered by the prayers and tears of His people, and by the sincere turning of their minds and hearts back to Him; and
WHEREAS, our forefathers held days of "Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer " in excess of eight hundred times in the Colonies, States and Nation, from the Pilgrims in 1623 during drought, to our ancestors holding such a Day in 1918, asking the Lord to end the "Spanish flu" and World War One; and
WHEREAS, Each time such a national time of sincere repentance was held, the Lord responded, blessing and healing this nation, always honoring His Word; and
WHEREAS, many, for the Glory of God, now wish to pray, confess our personal and national sins, repent, and thereby refresh the Godly roots planted in the Mayflower Compact, and wish to set aside time on November 11, 2022, 402 years after the signing of the Mayflower Compact, for that very purpose;
NOW, THEREFORE, We proclaim, and we invite whosoever will to proclaim, a National Day of Prayer, Repentance, and Refreshing of the Mayflower Compact, on Friday, November 11, 2022; and invite all, wherever located, to join His people in humble contrition on that Day, to turn from our ungodly ways, to repent of our national sins, and acknowledge our final dependence upon Him.
*** AMEN ***

The Mayflower Compact,
2 Chronicles 7:14,
November 11 and America.
article by Cindy Lynne
On November 11, 1620, 402 years ago, the Pilgrims created and signed a clearly religious document that would lay the foundation for a nation yet to be formed.
Seeking the right to worship as they wished and having survived the tumultuous journey from England, the group of English Separatists aboard, later known as the Pilgrims, fell to their knees and blessed God for bringing them safely across the “vast and furious ocean” to a new life in the New World.
Prior to even stepping onto the land they wrote and signed a document that clearly stated their intentions for self-government, cooperation one with another and their heart for God’s will for this new world .The Mayflower Compact stated that the right to self-government was derived from God, Himself and laid the foundation for what would become America.
Now . . . in 2022, we find that covenant violated on every side. We hear the rumblings of an even greater spiritual war from those who hate the very principles of those who traveled into the unknown for the very purpose of religious freedom. Land has been taken by an enemy more subtle and more deadly than any we have seen with our physical eyes. Yet, we are watching the physical landscape, our families and our nation are being ravaged.
As we consider how this has happened in the land of the free, the home of the brave . . . it seems many of us are simply no longer “free indeed.” We are not living free in Christ, in the way that allows the people who were handed the blessing of governing to actually maintain control of the climate and atmosphere; to maintain families that are united and loving; to maintain a land whose God is the Lord. We did not occupy the land once freedom was handed to us.
This, the very pattern in our own personal lives has created a nation nearly now completely lost to the enemy of our souls. We must return to the Lord.
As America left her roots and first love . . . everything began to change. The downhill slide continues with speed now.
When the Lord, through prayer and fasting, gave a date of 11-11 to take a stand for His Holy name and to regain control in the spiritual realm for rulership of a nation, our nation, it didn’t seem a “logical” date. It could be snowing by then in places, it was after the date of the election. And yet, there was an insistence by the Lord Himself. The date was to be November 11. We knew there must be something significant about this day in time. It must be God’s perfect time.
Finding much later, that the first year we were to proceed was the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims and the signing of the Mayflower Compact, it became clear that the Lord was tying the dates for HIS plans for this nation together. Tying time and history into a plan to save a country who has not yet fulfilled her destiny.
We contemplated that Veterans Day is also on the very same day that we had been given - in fact the exact time - and that the final shot was fired to end a war at 11-11 at 11:00 a.m.; the signing of the Mayflower Compact now lining up with a new assignment - to summons the people of God to a clarion call. We must stand and do spiritual battle now where the preservation of America and freedom to worship and serve our God and save our families will play out in the physical realm. Our freedom is determined actually by whether or not we are free indeed in Christ.
The only road back for America is to become free indeed. The only answers are found in His word and obedience to it and in this men will know that God is Who He Says He is and Jesus will be proclaimed Lord of many. Drenched in prayer, It begins with us. It begins with Repentance.
America the beautiful, return to your first love. Return to your roots and be healed.
“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles” 7:14
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Eph. 6:12
