Make the Pledge – 40 Days and 40 Nights

For the next 40 days and 40 nights, I pledge…I COVENANT to practice faith, hope and charity by doing these things.

First…faith. I will pray on my knees every night for the next 40 nights…starting TONIGHT. Pray for guidance, inspiration, peace…pray for the leaders of our country. Pray for their safety, and that they will receive wisdom. I will re-establish my relationship with God.

Hope…hope comes from truth. You can’t have hope based on lies. If you go to the doctor and you’re in the early stages of cancer, but the doctor tells you that you just have the sniffles…that’s false hope, and it won’t help you, in fact, it would kill you. So, we have to have honesty, to have real hope. So, I will stop all lies for the next 40 days. That includes lying to myself. I will establish a pattern of honesty and make it become habitual. I will question with boldness…everything…even the things Glenn Beck tells you every night…I will do my own research…and then pray for my own confirmation on the things I have learned. I will find out what is true in my life.

And third…I will have charity. Charity begins at home. I will do something kind for every member of your family at least once a week. I will write it down, and then do it. Also, I pledge to take notice of how blessed I really am. I live in the greatest country the world has ever known…and even the least prosperous among us, are among the wealthiest people in the world…I will be grateful.

Pledge of Nonviolence

Below is the Pledge of Nonviolence that Martin Luther King, Jr. asked those who believed in his message to abide by as well as his core principles of nonviolence.

I am going to ask you to make the same commitment to nonviolence and give you the opportunity to make that pledge public by having you ‘sign’ these documents below.


  1. As you prepare to march meditate on the life and teachings of Jesus
  2. Remember the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation – not victory.
  3. Walk and talk in the manner of love; for God is love.
  4. Pray daily to be used by God that all men and women might be free.
  5. Sacrifice personal wishes that all might be free.
  6. Observe with friend and foes the ordinary rules of courtesy.
  7. Perform regular service for others and the world.
  8. Refrain from violence of fist, tongue and heart.
  9. Strive to be in good spiritual and bodily health.
  10. Follow the directions of the movement leaders and of the captains on demonstrations.

The Five Principles of Nonviolence

  1. Non-violent resistance is not a method for cowards. It does resist. The nonviolent resister is just as strongly opposed to the evil against which he protests, as is the person who uses violence. His method is passive or nonaggressive in the sense that he is not physically aggressive toward his opponent, but his mind and emotions are always active, constantly seeking to persuade the opponent that he is mistaken. This method is passive physically but strongly active spiritually; it is nonaggressive physically but dynamically aggressive spiritually.
  2. Nonviolent resistance does not seek to defeat or humiliate the opponent, but to win his friendship and understanding. The nonviolent resister must often express his protest through noncooperation but he realizes that noncooperation is not the ends itself; it is merely means to awaken a sense of moral shame in the opponent.
  3. The attack is directed against forces of evil rather than against persons who are caught in those forces. It is a struggle between justice and injustice, between the forces of light and the forces of darkness.
  4. Nonviolent resistance avoids not only external physical violence, but also internal violence of spirit. At the center of non-violence stands the principle of love.
  5. Nonviolence is based on the conviction that the universe is on the side of justice. It is the deep faith in the future that allows a nonviolent resister to accept suffering without retaliation. The nonviolent resister knows that in his struggle for justice, he has a cosmic companionship.

Make Your Pledge

If you agree to abide by these principles of nonviolence and to practice faith, hope and charity by doing the above things, sign your name below

    Peace on earth cannot exist as long as one group of people hates another. This applies as much to why we fight wars to why we shun groups like the KKK.  If you really want peace on earth, be ready when Christ returns to claim his kingdom!

    It is not Beck and all the others who make a pledge of peace who are the hypocrites.  If someone wants to be at peace and they reach out a hand of friendship to someone who refuses that offer of peace and openly declares they will not stop until they have murdered you and all like you, then a peaceful person has no choice but self defense and the defense of other peaceful people.  Listed in the 10 commandments it says thou shalt not murder, it does NOT say thou shalt not practice self defense—that’s what we keep troops for and why we support our troops—they put their lives on the line to provide for our common defense as stated in the Constitution.   There is a difference—there is no Biblical mandate against self defense.  Biblical history proves this out as time and again God helped Israel defend themselves when attacked by those who had no intention of living peaceably with their neighbors.  Us peace loving people would LOVE to have peace in every corner of the world as well as our own, but as long as good and evil both exist, there will be the Hitlers and Khadaffis etc of the world who will not stop their murderous plans of domination unless SOMEBODY takes up arms to stop them.  Thank God there are people who have the sense to be prepared to do just that.  If you disagree with self defense, you’re perfectly welcome to pack your stuff and live in Iran, Libya, Somalia, or wherever else you like where they practice murder on a daily basis, and have no intention of  living peacably—especially with an American.  If you have any notion that Muslims REALLY want to live peaceably with ANY American including you,  you don’t understand Islam and it’s fundamental “truths”—one of which is that Allah says it’s ok to lie, cheat or murder to spread  Islam throughout the world.  You doubt me?  Read the Quran for yourself and find out what they’re really all about.  Jay (Sunderland) is right—-peace IS coming and it will happen when the Christ of the Bible returns—-an event more than one book of the Bible admonishes us to be ready for; my earnest prayer for you is that you will find out this important truth while you still may—once you leave this world there will be no more chances to make a choice.

    I think you can support the troops in their mission, while asking our politicians to get us out. War is not a good thing. But every country has an army. Are you saying that in order to have peace, there must be no troops?

  • Laura Power

    I will continue to pray and read my scriptures daily. I will serve each person in my family at least once a week. I will seek out service for another person at least once a day. I will repent of all my sins daily and turn my heart more fully to God. I will share with others my love for God and my love for my Savior Jesus Christ. I will be honest in all my dealings to everybody and I will continue to participate in good and wholesome things including food, media, and seek out the good in others. I will continue to share my love for this great country and pray for our leaders and for the safety of them and our military and their families. I will continue to pray that our country will remain free and that the purposes of God will be fulfilled.

  • Susan Bailey

    I just took the pledge, will pray the Divine Mercy every day for 40 days, and I’m promoting the initiative on Twitter, Facebook and on my blog, Thank you Glenn, prayer is the only answer now.

  • Elaine Lopez

    Please, please, make “The Project” available for download. I NEED to share it with others who don’t have DISH or access to Internet.

    • Scott Todd

      Along those same lines, perhaps there should be more levels of The Blaze TV available- the basic service which is the 5-7PM ET now; perhaps a Basic Plus which we could use to add one or two other programs a month, or for a special like “The Project”; then a Blaze Gold which would be the whole schedule. I’d love to have something like Basic Plus since I would like to watch this special, but generally I don’t have time to watch much more than Glenn’s program so paying for the full Blaze schedule is a waste of money for me.

      • Mike Ballard

        Nonsense.  If you believe in the principles of Glenn Beck, the cost for service is JUSTIFIED.  I don’t get to watch Glenn nearly as much as I’d like to.  But I know this…  When I see the bill every month from my subscription, I get a wonderful feeling that I am backing something as Noble, Powerful, and Patriotic as The Blaze.  I will pay for this network as long as I breathe regardless of my personal amount of intake. 

  • Itold

    Ok, now, there are 7 bil of people on earth. will all of them fit practicing what you suggest, or will some take an easy road and invade their peaceful neighbor – good steward of the earth. Maybe you should read up on history and see what happened to peaceful civilizations that minded their own business – and back then there were no 7 bil people on this planet.

        Here it is on youtube.
        Look at other sources as well just in general about political Islam. Mohammad Ayoob wrote a really good book about islam and politics in different muslim nations with a brief look at Europe as well.
        Glenn, while himself does not show much nuance or willingness to change his views when prevented with different facts, he does have a good research team (part one of the series on the blaze written by the theology guy about islam, who clearly did not know much about islam before beginning his research, was really good) but it is one point of view.

    • Anonymous

      while I do find Glenn’s analysis of Islam, the middle east and the muslim brotherhood/arab spring to lack nuance or deep understanding I’m still interested to see this as I’ve been familiar with the holy lands thing for awhile.
      but to the point, I did find it on youtube if you’re interested.

  • Scott Todd

    Glenn- I don’t mean to be flippant when I ask this but rather completely serious. Does the non-violence extend to if we should find ourselves facing violent jihadists who want to kill us? See if you agree with me on this next statement- the reason nonviolence worked in both India against the British and in the southern US against the segregationists is because despite their obvious flaws, they were also fundamentally decent people. I doubt it would work with any who are not.

    As I sit here and think about my life and where it is headed, I know now is the time to see change. From being sexually assaulted this year to going back to my husband after being seperated for a few months and now he is going on the truck, I will be quitting my job to stay at home with our three children. I can tell you now doors are opening for me. I have 2 books ready to be published. I have my schooling-I am in school to earn my Bachelor of Arts in Pyschololgy and taking classes online. I have goals of one day rescuing girls and women from trafficing as I know what it’s like to feel like you have to give in. I want to restore relationships. I want to find who I am once again because I had given up all hope until 2 weeks ago while sitting in my friend Kelly’s living room, I gave my heart to Jesus. I now know that peace and yes life is hard and no life isn’t perfect, but I now know I have hope.

    My name is Jody-Lynne and I have been doing this with you from the start, when I heard about your commitment on the radio. I did not look at this page. I am thankful that the Lord has moved me to prayer and fasting. I have been eating all things grown and lots of soy products. :) and have been learning to examine my wants and have been praying that God moves my wants to better reflect HIS WANTS. I am praying for our nation and asking for clarification of who each candidate truly is so that this nation’s God followers will rise up and live the Word and honor our God. I am praying that God will guide and direct us and lead this nation so He might forgive us and heal our land. You were a confirmation of God’s voice in my life that day I joined you. 40 days. AND I AM LEARNING THAT I AM THIS NATION and I will live as I am called to live.

    I had an amazing moment with God the other night.  I came home from an art show and I stood in my driveway looking up at the million stars in the sky/milky way… I felt the need to pray and ask forgiveness.  I spoke out loud and repeated it several times.  Not three seconds after I said it I thought to myself, show me a sign you hear me… a shooting star.  One crossed the left part of the sky and I immediately was covered in goosebumps, I exhaled a huge relief and stood there saying, “oh my God, oh my God!”  Then I stood there talking out loud, “Okay, there’s a meteor shower.  I stood there in amazement for about five more minutes and said, “God, I’m sorry I doubted you.”  I ran inside with the biggest smile on my face and phoned my mother who I knew would love to hear this experience.  Nobody will ever convince me that it was coincidence.  I truly know I was forgiven by God.  INCREDIBLE!!!

  • JoanofAmerica

    I vow to be an American with the best intentions, follow the constitution, the commandments and love thy neighbor and family.  I’m working hard to spread the word of God and our founding fathers through my art.  I vow to care for my sick mother and handicapped sister and be a loving wife and support my U.S. marine.  It seems there is temptation everyday even in the smallest ways though no temptation is ever small.

    I would also like to convey on behalf of my sister to submit to the 40days and 40nights.  I know in her heart she truly loves God but her illness can bring out the worst in her at times.  I ask God to forgive her as it is not her fault.

    Sunday, my sister and I stayed to help put up furniture after church.  We were one of the last to leave and we were walking out the front of the church when she decided to have one her explosive moments with me.  It doesn’t take much to set her off.  She decided she didn’t want to go help me with some yard work at my house and wanted to go home and be with mom instead.  I asked her to lower her voice and that was all it took for her to begin cursing at me at the top of her lungs and throwing things at me like her glasses, book bag with bible in it. One of the pastors who had never seen this sign of my sister but was aware that she would get very aggressive with me observed from behind.  She witnessed by sister say she wished I would die, etc. etc.  I just stood there on the steps of our church while I dodged items flying at me.  She suddenly saw the pastor and immediately was scared she was in trouble.  While our pastor spoke to her and asked her why she was being so mean to me she continued to tell the pastor I just beat her up.  Pastor told her she witnessed everything as did God and knew she was being dishonest.  I just stood there with tears running down my face helpless.  When sis calmed down as she always does in about 10 minutes or so, we prayed together.  I realized that I actually wasn’t helpless because every time this happens, I hold her and forgive her.  I know that God chose me to deal with this because I can handle it.  I can protect her from herself.  As I got the car, sis sat on the steps of our church with our pastor and they spoke.  Pastor phoned me later that she was scared because our mother is sick and she feared where she would live if she died. (stress triggers her episodes)   Pastor told her with your sister and brother-in-law of course.  We often tell her this but it happens to be a constant fear with her.  To end this story, we ended up going to my house, doing yard work and playing with all the dogs we care for.   I have to admit, it can be very hard but I wouldn’t trade her for the world.  I vow to always be there for her and take anything she throws at me.  God knows I love her!

    I’ve been doing the fasting 40 days to election day and it is one of best things I’m proud to be doing.  I’m usually coward to listen live to debates, but because of 40 days fasting and prayer, I had courage to watch live, and it was terrific to hear all three plus VP one and not get snippets from pundits afterwards. I love everything The Blaze, GB, Pat and Stu, Wilkow, 6 PM roundtable group, thank you for staying with Benghazi, everything you say is truth, I rely on that, and nation needs to give you credit for keeping Benghazi and cover up in news until finally other media got on board and now tumbling blocks happening.  Ty Woods’ father put it on top, and let’s not forget that Mr. Woods first contact was to station to get in touch with Glenn and Beck immediately put him into 5 pm program on The Blaze.  Thank you for your CLEAR EYES, OPEN HEARTS AND DON’T LOSE (OUR GREAT NATION) ATTITUDE.

    Why is it that those PROTESTANT ministers, and if you look at the word…PROTESTant,  who are only in their respective beliefs because centuries ago someone DISAGREED with the one TRUE Christianity…LET ALONE JUDAISM?  JESUS WAS A JEW…HE wasn’t welcome in His own HOMETOWN…human condition of rebellion and wanting to be in charge…don’t get the ACCOUNTABILITY as the Catholic Priests?  Look at JIMMY BAKER?  and the countless others that you have seen in the news as adulterers, pedophiles and THIEVES  taking  what doesn’t belong to them but to their COMMUNITIES!  REALLY???? I am so sick of the whole “Catholic is BAD” baloney!…THE BUCK DOES NOT STOP HERE!!! Take a chance…read your bible…visit a Catholic Mass…One thing we have that most don’t is the BELIEF OF THE TRUE BODY, BLOOD, SOUL AND DIVINITY OF CHRIST IN THE EUCHARIST.  THE LAST SUPPER’S BREAD AND WINE IS NOT A SYMBOL!  HE said “whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood will live forever.”  How much clearer can it be??? And the Catholic Church offers so many opportunities for REPENTANCE!  WE HUMANS just don’t want to be ACCOUNTABLE!!! But we will be…each and every one of us…  I am for UNITY…not for separation. As Christ prayed…MAY WE ALL BE ONE!!!!  But DAG NAB IT!!!!!! LOOK AT YOURSELF!  WORRY ABOUT YOU!!  We can only make things better by being better ourselves!  IN THE BIG PICTURE OF THINGS…STOP PERSECUTING THE RELIGION FOR THE SINS OF A CERTAIN FEW!   I CHALLENGE YOU CATHOLIC BASHERS TO REVIEW YOUR LIVES IN THE THOUGHT OF MEETING GOD WHEN YOU DIE!… “He who is without sin, cast the first stone.”

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

    God’s chosen people, as stated both in old and new testaments, are those who make and keep covenants with him by His authority. They are His covenant people through Christ’s atonement. 

    God made covenants with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob concerning their posterity. This posterity became divided into tribes – the twelve tribes of Israel. The tribes became wicked and turned away from God. The Babylonians came and carried ten of the twelve tribes away. The remaining tribes were known as the Jews. The Jewish people do not comprise the totality of the tribes of Israel. After the Babylonian captivity Israel was rebuilt and Christ’s ministry came around. The Jews rejected and crucified Christ. The Jews were brought into captivity and scattered throughout the “world” by the Roman Empire.

    In recent contemporary history the Jews began to gather again in Israel and Israel became a sovereign nation. But the Jews are not exclusively Israel! They are certainly part of Israel, but not all of Israel – according to biblical history of the Old & New Testament.

    So to say that the Jews of Israel are THE chosen people is both scripturally and historically inaccurate.

    Regardless of historical accuracy, yes – we should stand with them.

    Also Glenn – you misuse the word covenant here. I cannot covenant to do these things – who am I covenanting with? Where is the contract? I cannot of myself design covenants with God. God designs the covenants and I fulfill them.

    I can pledge though, that I can do.

    The religious pomp in some of your political messages are a bit edgy. But I do agree with where you stand.

    I am a bit late with this but start today- 22 July 2015. My first act will be to make several phone calls to family I have been putting off. Tonight I will not watch the evening news-it depresses me, is a reason for foul language and anger, and takes my concentration away from my husband and dog. I will meditate for 20 minutes and pray on my knees tonight…all inclusively. I will do my PT exercises twice each day as required and walk my dog twice as well. I will call an old friend whose birthday I missed and make arrangements for lunch and a belated celebration. I will write back to two friends I owe letters to and will not spend my afternoon playing BINGO on FB.

    Well said. Bless you and Israel too.
