One thing is clear: the demons of violence and lawlessness are on the loose all across America, not merely in Aurora, Colorado.

Violent crime in the United States has surged by more than 460 percent since 1960. The further we turn away from God in our nation - or give lip service to religion - the worse things are getting. We are witnessing a horrifying explosion of murder. We are witnessing a gruesome crime wave unprecedented in American history. And there appears to be no end in sight.

"Alarm bells are going off all around us. Lights on the dashboard are flashing, Warning! Warning! Yet America is sleeping through the alarms, blind to the warning lights. And tragically, for the most part, the Church -- God's chosen instrument to bless individuals, families, communities, and nations -- is asleep as well. I shudder to imagine where we are heading if we don't wake up soon, plead for the Lord's forgiveness, and ask Him to use us to love our neighbors and revitalize our country….

"If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

Written for Israel, 2 Chronicles 7:14 is a principle we all should embrace.

….America is on the brink of collapse. We desperately need God's mercy.

Without His grace, we will implode. It's not a matter of if but when.

Let us not compound our many national sins by failing to get on our faces before G-d, seek His forgiveness for our sins and implore Him to pour out His Holy Spirit upon this spiritually dry and thirsty land we call America.
