Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has endorsed a prayer effort to mark the anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

WND Editor Joseph Farah is behind the call for a day of national prayer and fasting on 9/11.

In his appeal, he asks readers to pray against terrorism, nuclear war and homosexuality.

“The U.S. continues its slide from moral malaise to cultural hedonism that makes the late 1960s look like the 1950s by comparison, as support for 'same-sex marriage' grows, the horrors of the 'abortion on demand' crusade are revealed in a Philadelphia courtroom sans media coverage and an epidemic of sex abuse against children by schoolteachers, clergy and scoutmasters is not only ignored but results in capitulation by the Boy Scouts of America to the demands of those who would make the citizenry of Sodom and Gomorrah blush,” he wrote, referring to the Boy Scouts' recent proposal to allow openly gay scouts.

Bachmann, a 2012 GOP presidential candidate, backed the idea in a statement.

“I join together with other Americans who have called for September 11, 2013, to be set aside as a day for personal prayer, reflection and fasting, for ourselves and for our nation,” Bachmann wrote.

“As we humble ourselves and pray and seek God's face and turn from our wicked ways, we can take assurance from the Holy Scripture that God has promised to hear from heaven, will forgive our sin, and will heal our land.”
