At the initiation of Sen. Mark O. Hatfield, a theologically sharp Oregonian who is regarded a possible choice for the 1976 Republican presidential nomination, many Americans have set aside a day to “confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”
They’ve scheduled observances on Tuesday, of a National Day of Humiliation. Fasting and Prayer, as urged in a resolution introduced by Hatfield and adopted by the U.S. senate.
Participation has been supported by the U.S. Catholic bishops administrative board, by several Protestant and ecumenical organizations and by many community groups. At least seven governors — in Colorado. Arizona, Idaho, Louisiana, Georgia, Nebraska and Alabama — have issued proclamations for the observance.
It could “result in a great spiritual awakening throughout our land,” says Bill Bright, president of Campus Crusade for Christ, in material sent to 600,000 campus workers. “Prayers . . . can turn the tide and change our nation.”
Hatfield, 51, a biblically minded student of Abraham Lincoln: and a critic of socalled “civil religion” that equates Americanism with God, says, “We must turn in repentance from the sin that has scarred our national soul.”
“Only a national confession of corporate guilt can save us from the worship of our own finite power . . . and heal the wounds that presently afflict us.”
A Baptist and two-time governor of his home state before being elected to the U.S. senate in 1966, Hatfield is among few federal lawmakers along with Sen, Harold Hughes, (D-Iowa) disposed to discuss issues in such explicitly religious terms.
“Until you know a candi
date’s philosophy of life, you don’t know the candidate,” he told a recent interviewer. Asked his philosophy, he said, “I define my philosophy in
terms of the Lordship of Jesus Christ.”
Several influential church journals have cited Hatfield as a possibility for the 1976 pres-
To proclaim April 30,1974, as a National Day For Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer.
Whereas it is the duty of nations, as well as of men. to
owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God. to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations are blessed whose God is the Lord; and
Whereas we know that we have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown; but we have forgotten God; and
Whereas we have forgotten the gracious hand which
preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own; and
Whereas, intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us; and
Whereas we have made such an idol out of our pursuit
of “national security” that we have forgotten that only God can be the ultimate guardian of our true livelihood and safety; and
Whereas we have failed to respond, personally and collectively, with sacrifice and uncompromised commitment to the unmet needs of our fellow man, both at home and abroad; as a people, we have become so absorbed with the selfish pursuits of pleasure and profit that we have blinded ourselves to God's standard of justice and righteousness for this society; and
Whereas it therefore behooves us to humble ourselves before Almighty God, to confess our national sins, and to pray for celemency and forgiveness; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled. That the Congress hereby proclaims that April 30,1974, be a National Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer; and calls upon the people of our Nation to humble ourselves as we see fit, before our Creator to acknowledge our final dependence upon Him and to repent of our national sins.

idential race. He “might emerge as the Republican party’s Mr. Clean, capable of the Aegean-stables trick of digging out after Watergate,” writes editor James Wall, editor of the ecumenical weekly, Christian Century.
“If he does, and if he continues his candor and conviction straight into the White House, the country might have found the man who can be moral without being moralistic. devout without being pietistic.”
Considered a liberal Republican, Hatfield’s particular criteria prevent his being pegged in any specific camp on issues. For example, allied with conservatives, he bas co-spon-sored an anti-abort ion constitutional amendment, but with liberals, he was an early opponent of the Vietnam war and is a critic* of U.S. reliance on military diplomacy.
He says an “American civil religion" permeating the country has “blinded us to the possibility of sin” and sees
American power as its “new
His .senate resolution, designating Tuesday a day of repentance, says “we have forgotten God . . . Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace...
“We have made such an idol of our pursuit of ‘national security’ that we have forgotten that only God can be the ultimate guardian of our true livelihood and safety ... As a people we have become so absorbed with the selfish pursuits of pleasure and profit that we have blinded ourselves to God’s standard of justice and righteousness for this society.”
Church and civic groups in several cities, including Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Fla., Scranton, Pa., and Portland, Ore., have planned observances Tuesday, such as closing businesses for varying periods, keeping churches open and special worship services.
On the state and local lev**!, Tuesday is being observed as a Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer in several ways.
The Iowa house passed a resolution this week setting aside Tuesday as a day for humiliation, fasting and prayer.
* * *
The chapel and sanctuary at
St. Mark’s Lutheran church will be open for prayer during the day and evening Tuesday in observance of the National Day of Prayer.
* * *
The Free Methodist church will hold its midweek service Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. instead of Wednesday in observance of the National Day of Prayer.
The Christian Women’s Club
of Cedar Rapids will hold two prayer coffees Tuesday, one at the home of Mrs. James Zean, 1059 Thirty-fourth street NE, the other at the home of Mrs. Francis Johnson, 2408 Mallory street SW, both at 9:30 a m.
* * *
Mrs. Robert L. Miller, president of Church Women United. urged women of all faiths, Christian, Jewish and Moslems, to set aside Tuesday as a day of prayer and fasting for our nation.
She urged that “women pray especially for Cedar Rapids and Marion that the flood of filth and lawlessness that has affected so many cities will be stemmed.”

A sight and sound experience in the Holy Land!
Israel is a land of startling contrast. Gleaming modern cities coexist with the weathered signs of centuries past. An expanse of barren desert is interrupted by flourishing vineyards and orchards. A tiny nation reborn only 25 years ago builds for the future in spite of resource-draining wars.
UIS LAW, the award-winning motion picture never before shown on television, conveys the essence of the beauty and mystery of Israel.
