St. Petersburg, FL (PressExposure) December 05, 2008 -- Bill Keller, founder of Liveprayer.com and the world's leading internet evangelist, is calling for a National Day of Prayer and Fasting for the Economy. By way of a petition to President Bush and Congress, Keller and 250,000 petitioners plan to ask the outgoing president to officially proclaim Thursday, December 18th as a National Day of Prayer.
In the face of a national crisis, declaring a National Day is something many former presidents have done. Accordingly, Keller has established a link to an online petition on his Liveprayer.com web site. Based on the interest and traffic to his site regarding the proposed National Day of Prayer and Fasting, Keller estimates that well over 250,000 signatures will be submitted for the petition.
Keller recently made national headlines when he claimed that God was using the economy to judge the nation for its sins. The reason, Keller explained, none of the solutions put forth by the world's greatest economists to correct the falling economy have worked is simple: the problem is not an economic one.
"The crisis is a spiritual problem," said Keller. "The answer to our economic downfall is not an infusion of trillions of dollars, but the humble prayers of forgiveness and repentance for our sin and rebellion against God."
