Our country is not what it was, not what it should be. Our founding fathers would be appalled and sad. We are lacking strong leadership, no one seems able to agree on anything, and we, the people, are allowing God to be removed from society. He is no longer in our schools, in the halls of our buildings, in our stadiums, on some grounds, and even in the hearts of some men and women.
It frightens me and I'm not sure what we need to do about it. I do know this. I believe in God and in the power of prayer.
There is HOPE.
PRAY FOR OUR AMERICA
In the Bible, the 2nd Book of Chronicles, Chapter 7, Verse 14, God promised:
If my people, upon whom my name has been pronounced, humble themselves and pray, and seek my presence and turn from their evil ways, I will hear them from Heaven and pardon their sins and revive their land.
Let's do this! Let's pray and ask God to help us. Help us vote in strong leadership that believes in our country, in its people, in God's help, in prayer, in turning our country back into the wondrous land it once was, in trusting and believing in our Constitution and our Declaration of Independence, in believing that government should help lead this nation, not own it, not being rulers, but guides. Let's also ask God to help us instill His Spirit into the hearts of men. How different the world would be if we all believed.
I know that my friends will do this. Take a few minutes every day (not just today ~ every day) to pray for God's help in this matter. And if we ask this of our friends and they ask it of their friends, and on and on.... God will hear our plea.
