For those of us reading this living in the United States it is evident we greatly need prayer. What better day to pray than on the designated National Day of Prayer. The scriptures say in Psalm 33:12(NIV) that 'Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.'
The United States has been blessed by God ever since its founding over 235 years ago because we were a nation founded on the word of God. Our monuments in the nation's Capitol reflect this as does our currency. Forces are always at work to try to remove God from the equation. Look at nations who have shut Him out. They have not gone far.
Countries whose leaders try to play god fail miserably. Satan would love to see the US crumble. Look at where we are at today. In my lifetime I have seen the Supreme Court ban prayer from the public school and also say it is okay for a woman to kill the life growing inside of her because this baby is inconvenient. I am sorry but that is murder, not choice. We have allowed evil people to be elected to the highest offices in government. You can not run a country by simply saying 'God Bless The USA' at the end of a speech. There is more to it than that.
Our country has coddled to countries who say we are infidels. We have made speaking out against terrorism a huge wrong. It is called work place violence or something else. We can not continue to allow anti God unChristian forces to infiltrate our government. Christians must get on their knees and first repent for their silence and apathy or political leaning which prevented them from speaking up.
TV and movies have taken a nose dive morally speaking. I grew up with shows that truly were family oriented. The commercials on television now would never have been allowed. We have become a nation slowly being desensitized to evil. We fall into the category of political correctness more than Bible and God correctness. We are in need of revival. The Bible is our guide. It should not be edited to justify sinful lifestyles. Period.
2 Chronicles 7:14(NIV) says 'If my people who are called by name name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.' This verse was the battle cry back in 1980 during "Washington For Jesus" (which I attended) and it is still the battle cry today. It is time we truly repent, confess our sins,stop being complacent and bring revival to our land.'
PRAYER: Lord we pray for the healing of America. We are a broken nation. We have allowed the lies of Satan to even be written into laws in our Nations Capitol. Shame on us for allowing this. I choose this day to continue to pray for the nation to repent and for God fearing men and women to be in the offices in this land. Turn evil men and women's heart to you. Let them cry out for forgiveness. In Jesus' name.Amen.
