Our nation has become one of the most un-Godly nations in history, we have been corrupted by wealth, power and pride.
We have fallen away from the teachings of those who came before us that blazed a path for freedom, freedom from the very things that now enslave us.
We have followed blindly the footsteps of every nation that has fallen into this trap of sinful blindness.
We have made God our enemy and embraced the very things He has warned us not to do, and we applaud ourselves and pat ourselves on the back and say well done while snubbing our Creator, our Sustainer, our God.
We kill our own children, we send our brave men and now women into battle in other parts of the world and get them killed one by one, or they get wounded maybe not always physically but the mental and spiritual wounds are deep and painful and can last a lifetime.
God is judging this nation because we are destroying it, we elect those who hate God and what He stands for, we elect those who hate the very freedoms God gave us.
We have destroyed our freedoms by electing slave masters who little by little chain us and deceive us into submission, we have become harlots, selling our souls to the world’s fleshly ways, and enemies of God.
My prayer for America is this. Heavenly Father, Please forgive us, we ask for your forgiveness, for we have butchered over 56 million babies in the name of choice, we have taken the institution of marriage that you created as a picture of Jesus and the church and perverted it with same-sex relations, sex outside of marriage, we are adulterers, we have perverted the intimacy of marriage by men and women living together out of wedlock, sexual relations mean nothing to anyone anymore, there is no love for you or our fellow man, we have committed idolatry as a nation worshipping politicians, movie stars, musicians, ourselves, celebrity preachers, we have embraced other religions and gods, and we have created our own image of who you should be and forget our first love, Jesus Christ.
We are a nation that believes we deserve everything we have been given and we have turned our hearts and backs on you.
Your wrath is being poured out and it is hard to watch as our nation and those who call themselves your children turn to their own ways and do not acknowledge you.
We repent oh Lord, individually for our sins, and for the sins of our nation, hear our cry for mercy and grace, prick the hearts of our neighbors, family, friends and fellow countrymen with your ever-loving grace, may they see your truth in us always, and may we live our lives out of love and compassion spreading the good news of your gospel truth, you are our hope.
God's word says this:
“What is the source of wars and fights among you? Don’t they come from your passions that wage war within you? You desire and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and wage war. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and don’t receive because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. You adulterous people! Don’t you know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? So whoever wants to be the friend of the world becomes the enemy of God. Or do you think it’s without reason that the Scripture says: The spirit he made to dwell in us envies intensely? But he gives greater grace. Therefore he says: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be miserable and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” James 4:1-10 CSB
May we live the gospel!
“I am obligated both to Greeks and barbarians, both to the wise and the foolish. So I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome. For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith.”Romans 1:14-17 CSB
We are seeing this take place now.
“For God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth, since what can be known about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, that is, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what he has made. As a result, people are without excuse. For though they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became worthless, and their senseless hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man, birds, four-footed animals, and reptiles. Therefore God delivered them over in the desires of their hearts to sexual impurity, so that their bodies were degraded among themselves. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served what has been created instead of the Creator, who is praised forever. Amen. For this reason God delivered them over to disgraceful passions. Their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. The men in the same way also left natural relations with women and were inflamed in their lust for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the appropriate penalty of their error. And because they did not think it worthwhile to acknowledge God, God delivered them over to a corrupt mind so that they do what is not right. They are filled with all unrighteousness, evil, greed, and wickedness. They are full of envy, murder, quarrels, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, arrogant, proud, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, senseless, untrustworthy, unloving, and unmerciful. Although they know God’s just sentence — that those who practice such things deserve to die — they not only do them, but even applaud others who practice them.” Romans 1:18-32 CSB
The only hope for our nation is repentance and restoration.
“You, Lord, are enthroned forever; your throne endures from generation to generation. Why do you continually forget us, abandon us for our entire lives? Lord, bring us back to yourself, so we may return; renew our days as in former times, unless you have completely rejected us and are intensely angry with us.”Lamentations 5:19-22 CSB
Please forgive us, heal us, and set us back on your path of righteousness, only you can turn the hearts of our leaders, of the people of this Nation may your pulpits be filled with the word of God, the grace of God, the love of God and the judgment of God for all to hear.
Save us oh Lord from our own depravity.
“Then the Lord appeared to Solomon at night and said to him: I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple of sacrifice. If I shut the sky so there is no rain, or if I command the grasshopper to consume the land, or if I send pestilence on my people, and my people, who bear my name, humble themselves, pray and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. My eyes will now be open and my ears attentive to prayer from this place. And I have now chosen and consecrated this temple so that my name may be there forever; my eyes and my heart will be there at all times. As for you, if you walk before me as your father David walked, doing everything I have commanded you, and if you keep my statutes and ordinances, I will establish your royal throne, as I promised your father David: You will never fail to have a man ruling in Israel. However, if you turn away and abandon my statutes and my commands that I have set before you and if you go and serve other gods and bow in worship to them, then I will uproot Israel from the soil that I gave them, and this temple that I have sanctified for my name I will banish from my presence; I will make it an object of scorn and ridicule among all the peoples. As for this temple, which was exalted, everyone who passes by will be appalled and will say: Why did the Lord do this to this land and this temple? Then they will say: Because they abandoned the Lord God of their ancestors who brought them out of the land of Egypt. They clung to other gods and bowed in worship to them and served them. Because of this, he brought all this ruin on them.” 2 Chronicles 7:12-22 CSB
