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.
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.!
