And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God
and are called according to His purpose for them.
Father You are so good! Thank You for Your mercy! We bow our heads before You as our God. This nation was founded upon You, as the people who came were seeking freedom to worship You as their hearts demanded. Much blood was shed; much suffering brought tears throughout the land. When this nation was
founded, it was messages from the pulpit that inspired men to fight for
freedom from oppression. These ministers were referred to at the time as
the Black Robed Regiment. They fought with the men of their parish.
Through the centuries, we were not always righteous, our government was made up of men, so many mistakes, sins against our fellowman were perpetrated. But there were always those who worshiped You with all their hearts. It was governed generally according to Your principles, and most of our people tried to live that way.
Through the ages You blessed us as a nation Lord. We began to grow complacent, and evil furtively snuck into ideas and began reshaping the thoughts of society.
Slowly our culture drifted away from You. You sent warnings like 9/11. But we have disregarded them and fallen farther, and now evil is no longer slowly drifting, but flooding society.
We are even now sacrificing babies to false gods through abortions and our government is in full agreement with these murders. Living together without the commitment of marriage is common to the young people today and approved of by society. The homosexual lifestyle is being promoted by our government. We are a rebellious people Lord!
Father, bring many godly leaders to our people! Let Your truth begin to penetrate the hearts of the people of this earth! The enemy has been working hard to swallow up Your children in false ideas, sinful acts, and worship of false gods. Send a trumpeter to sound the alarm Lord! Awaken the Body! Let Your Word be spread around the world filtering into the spirits, minds and bodies of Your children.
Father, help each of us to hear the call to gather to You, sit at the knee of Jesus, and listen to the indwelling Holy Spirit. Instill us with courage to do whatever You ask! Let our hearts break over what breaks Your heart!
