Introduced in House (09/27/2000)

Reaffirms the proclamation signed by President Abraham Lincoln on March 30, 1863, in which he called for national humility, fasting, and prayer.

Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that all normal business of the Congress should be set aside on a Day of Repentance and Reconciliation for the United States, so that Members of Congress may join with all Americans in a solemn assembly to: (1) humble themselves with prayer and fasting; (2) repent individual and corporate sins; and (3) seek God's healing, reconciliation, and favor for the Nation and its future.

Encourages people of faith throughout the Nation to join in solemn assembly for such a day.
