National Day of Prayer for the United States

05/02/2012

This Thursday is the annual National Day of Prayer for our nation and our leaders. Please join me in praying for our President, his cabinet and staff, those in power and authority within all the
government agencies, our congress, our state governors and leaders, our local leaders, our school boards, and our nation as a whole.

We are called to acknowledge our shortcomings and wrongdoings and to ask God’s  forgiveness. We are called to turn from those ways and seek, afresh, to live lives of integrity and decency, extending respect to all and malice to none. We have fallen a long way from that calling.

Rather than slinging insults and calling people by insulting labels, why don’t we agree to disagree in a harmonious way? We can work for what we believe is right and good for our country without name calling and derogation of the opposition.

The anger and mudslinging has increased to unbelievable levels. It should not be that way.

In the United States today many feel threatened by the slurs and vitriol that is slung about. Many are frightened by those who wish to make them feel threatened when they go to the polls or support causes that are disliked by others. It should not be that way.

Many Americans seriously doubt our election process is without fraud. It doesn’t matter what side of the political aisle they are on. It should not be that way.

People hesitate to put bumper stickers on their cars supporting certain causes or people for fear their cars will be bashed. It should not be that way.

It is one thing to disagree, it is another to abuse, threaten, and/or defraud others. It should not be this way.

We need to be on our knees in prayer this Thursday. We have much to seek forgiveness for.

I hope you will join me in the prayer for our country.

We must stand up for goodness and decency.

We must be what God has called us to be and not what we have allowed ourselves to become.

May God bless American once again.
