We are clearly at a crossroads in our history and the direction we follow going forward will ultimately determine if we want to maintain our character and our freedom or give it all up for despotism and tyranny. To save our great land, we clearly must change course and I hope you will find the following prayer useful in helping you decide that saving her is indeed worth it.
Let us pray:
Dear Lord, We want to thank you this morning for Thy love and for giving the spirit and determination to our Founders and inspiring them to create truly the greatest land ever found on this earth. We are ever indebted to Thee, through them, for giving millions the opportunity to live their lives in freedom, opportunity, and love under Thee.
We are also ever thankful for the beauty and bounty that has been afforded us as Americans. Our land is simply beautiful beyond belief, from the salty seashore with its majestic waves and beautiful beaches, to the wondrous tall mountains reaching to the sky, to the bountiful plains which have been the breadbasket for the entire world. Our land has been blessed with a people who sought a dream and worked hard to harvest bountiful foods, explore and find vast minerals and fuel sources which have been the envy of the world, and who have designed and developed marvelous products which have aided the advancement of mankind. No place on earth has been able to match America and many around the world have been jealous of her and want to bring her down. This is being done despite our reputation as a kind and just people who have worked hard to help people and improve their status in life everywhere.
We are, however, Lord, today fearful and ashamed for despite our blessings and riches we have often taken Thee for granted and have not lived up to our end of the bargain. Many Americans have either lost or have given up on the work ethic. More and more people are turning to the government as the solution to their problems instead of turning to Thee. They have lost their morality, their independence and their faith, looking for someone other than Thee to provide for them.
At the same time, many of our leaders have also lost their direction. Instead of striving to make America better and allowing the individual citizen the freedom to use his talents to their fullest, they have decided to put him in a form of bondage, constantly under the thumb of an ever-expanding and ever-more powerful government. These leaders have developed an arrogance which makes them think they are better and more capable than anyone else and, therefore, more capable of making decisions for us. Power, riches, and self-importance have become what is most important to them and they think, in short, that they have replaced Thee.
Help us and give us the strength to change these things. Bring back our hearts and souls, devoted to Thee, and in so doing help us to therefore work Thy will, not our self-imposed solutions, for without Thee we are nothing but with Thee we are everything. Let us never forget that and never forget who sustains us and leads us to the ultimate Promised Land, a land of everlasting life with Thee and Thy Son, our Savior Jesus Christ.
We ask for these things in Thy name, Amen.
Americans, it really is time for us to stand up and save America. Each of us has skills and talents that can be put forth in this struggle. Each of us must search within themselves to identify these skills and talents to be used. Take time to pray to God, to have a one-on-one conversation with Him about this very matter and He will show you the way. It's to do this now, Fellow Patriots, so don't hesitate. Let's bring America back with God at her center.
Have a wonderful day on God's beautiful earth.
