Instead of praying as Daniel, Daniel 9 or King David, Psalm 51 [please take the time to read these for yourself and act accordingly]- we prayed in arrogance and pride a prayer void of repentance, a prayer lacking in the acknowledgment or accountability of our own part in bringing down America.
I received this prayer earlier today. Would things have turned out differently if we had cried out for forgiveness, acknowledged our sins, humbled ourselves, sought His face and turned from our wicked ways [2 Chronicles 7:14]? I would like to think so. The Word is filled with instances where the people repented and God relented. This sadly is not one of those times.
Dear Beloved God in Heaven
Please give us a president who loves this country and everything it stands for.
Please give us a president who respects you as the one true God.
Please give us a president who will, with your help, restore this nation to its former glory, the way you created her.
Please help us to respect what you have given to us and not take anything for granted ever again.
Please God weaken the evil and strengthen the good both without and within.
May our eyes be opened.
In Jesus’ name,
God Bless America
I am saddened, I am grieved, BUT I am not surprised.
