As a nation we seem to have clearly lost our way. Many of us have accepted things that wouldn't have been imagined just a generation or two ago. Others fight back and now find that the power of government has been applied against them in ways also never before imagined. And I think that now, as never before in our lifetime, we need to turn over our lives to the One who can help us, for He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
So won't you join with me this morning in a short prayer asking God's love and guidance to help us change our course? He is always waiting for our call.
Dear Heavenly Father, We Americans are troubled today more than ever before in our lifetime. Our moral code, values and freedom are clearly under attack. Our formerly God-fearing and family values society has fallen apart, taken over by radical ideas that clearly violate Thy commandments and offend Thy heart.
Help us to renew our faith in Thee, to remember what Thy Son Jesus did to save us from our sins, and regain the courage and moral strength to redirect the American spirit, becoming once again the shining light of the earth, offering hope to all through our human example of Thy love and grace. We know that there will be times that are fearful and we will likely be persecuted and suffer, but make us modern day Christian soldiers and Apostles for Thee, following in the example of Thy Apostles nearly two thousand years ago. Constantly remind us that through Thee we can do anything, but without Thee we will be nothing.
And help us to speak out and act clearly with the full knowledge that the only road to Truth and Salvation is through Thy grace. Keep our hearts always in the knowledge that through our faith in Thee and our devotion to Thy Law that only then, when the day is done, we will dwell in Thy House in glory and love forever.
And also, Father, on this Fathers Day as we recognize the importance of fathers everywhere, give strength to all of them to take their duties as a parent seriously and with full responsibility, knowing that in living in Thy example they will be successful in this tough job. In so doing they will develop their children into servants of Thee with love in their hearts and goodness in their mind. God bless each and every one of them.
Protect us, be with us and comfort us in the days ahead. We ask in the name of Thy Son Jesus Christ, Amen
HAPPY FATHERS DAY EVERYONE. AND REMEMBER GOD AND ASK FOR HIS LOVE AND GUIDANCE. Have a blessed Sunday.
