About HJR803:

In 2023, Representative Monty Fritts was led by the Holy Spirit to develop a Resolution to present before the 113th General Assembly to ask God to Help.  

There was no legislation that could be offered and no financial incentives offered by the Legislature to ultimately help with all the issues in our State.  After doing research as to how many of our founding fathers called upon calling out to the most high God for help because there was no where else to turn. 

Rep Fritts asked several local pastors to assist with developing the Resolution.  

While there could be pages of issues which needs the Divine help of Almighty God a smaller list was developed.

The list included:

Violence committed upon our citizens

Violence committed by our citizens

Violent crimes in our schools

Human Trafficking

Drug addiction 

Deadly Fentanyl

Driving Under the Influence

Children in foster care

Broken homes in Tennessee

Corruption in government

Then a section of "Be It Resolved" prescribed the period of July 1, 2024 through
July 31, 2024 be recognized as a time of prayer and fasting in Tennessee. The "Be It Resolved" statements recognize God for who He is, the Creator and King of all Glory who has the authority to judge and to bless nations and states.  The statements asks the Lord Jesus to heal our land, and remove the violence, addiction, and corruption.  

Senator Mark Pody asked to carry the Resolution to the Senate for their consideration. He felt like Rep Fritts, the only hope we have to resolve our issues is for God's people to humbly bow before God, repenting of our sins, and asking Him to resolve our issues and help us.
