Sackcloth & Ashes: Asking God to Stop Ebola in Liberia

Starting Thursday, 500 Christian leaders in Liberia will gather at Dominion Fellowship Church in Monrovia, Liberia for three days of fasting and prayer. They're calling it Sackcloth And Ashes.

The pastors and other church leaders will ask God to to stop the Ebola outbreak that is plaguing the country (and now contracted by two American health workers). All Liberian churches will join in for a full week of prayer beginning Monday, August 4.

Pastor Emery David of Triumphant Christian Church told The Global Lane by phone that God has responded in the past when Liberians have humbly confessed their sins, repented, and asked for divine intervention to spare their nation.

He said Liberians would like American Christians to join them in prayer, so God will once again "heal their land."

Watch and listen to David's comments, and then join Liberians during this time of prayer--not only for their nation, but also Sierra Leon, and Guinea.

More than 1,200 cases of this fatal virus have been reported and nearly 700 people have perished from the disease in West Africa since last February.
