Lord, Heal Our Land


Our country seems to be spiraling down an endless tunnel. Never before have we witnessed such unease and turmoil. God, and our freedom of expressing our beliefs in Him, are being removed from every source imaginable.

The state of our nation grieves my heart more every day. My prayers go out to those who don’t understand how much we depend on God. Leaving Him out of our lives will only leave us with no protection against the enemy, Satan; for he comes to steal, kill, and destroy. We can see it happening on a daily basis. Souls are fighting a losing battle each day while living a tarnished and unfulfilled life of drugs, sex, alcohol, cults, and prostitution. The world screams in fear, not sure of which way to turn. There is only one way to turn… Turn your eyes upon Jesus. He, alone, can satisfy a soul. Only He can save this nation who has turned her back on Him.

Pray each day that America will change her heart and return to her first love, Jesus.

 

Lord, Heal Our Land.

Lord, Heal Our Land.

2 Chronicals 7:14  “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Luke 17:26  “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man.”

A Nation Weeps

It seems the world is weary, Lord;
So many feel the pain.
A foreign land we have become.
Our nation’s not the same.

 Our leaders plot their secret plans;
They seek to spread deceit.
Our country once loved freedom, Lord,
But now her spirit weeps.

 America, our Christian land,
Removed You from her heart.
You are not welcome anymore,
And sin has left its mark.

 Will You attend our cries again?
Or will You turn Your head,
Reminding us of all we lost
When we chose sin, instead?

 Yet for the sake of those, steadfast—
The ones Who choose You first—
Would You, just once more, heal our land
From man’s ill-fated curse?

 We’re crying out for mercy, Lord.
Our nation’s lost her way.
Renew the love she once proclaimed.
Restore the U.S. A.!

About Heart Written: Doris Hayes Gibson

My name is Doris Hayes Gibson. My life revolves around Jesus Christ, my Creator, my Redeemer, the Lord of my worship, and the Hope for my tomorrow. My passion is to illustrate God's beauty and love through poetry and song lyrics. I have created hundreds of framed poetry images. Some were gifts of encouragement; some to honor a memory of a loved one, and some were created to help someone celebrate a special occasion. After living out of state for several years, I am, once again, residing in the beautiful Upstate of South Carolina. I have three grown children, five grandchildren, and a blue tortoiseshell Burmese cat. Illustrating God's beauty and love through words of poetry is my deepest passion. Although I have always enjoyed writing, it wasn't until 2005 (when God shut one door) that I realized He was opening the door of a tremendous opportunity to see Him use me in a spectacular way. While I do not claim any greatness of ability in any shape or form, I do know that God brought me through many trials and heartaches for such a time as this. I am now able to share this gift of poetry, with which He has blessed me, to magnify Him through blessing others. I Peter 4:10,11 states: "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen." Through my writings, my main goal is to edify Christ. If I have touched one person in a positive way through this ministry, I know it will be worth every effort I put into my work. As I have said before, "This is My Labor of Love...but God's Work of Art." My first book, Heart Written - Breaking Free, was published in November of 2012. It is my prayer that it will reach countless souls and bless lives in tremendous ways. In 2014, my second book, Heart Written - Calling Me, was published. My third and fourth books, Heart Written - Cleansing River and Heart Written - Guarded Treasures, are now available. Please visit any online bookstore to purchase my books or contact me for your personally signed copies of my Heart Written series.
