While I believe that justice was served, I am almost surprised to see a normal morning after all of the hype, shouting, and pure hate that has been displayed lately. And I hope and pray that both the Zimmerman and Martin families are given their privacy and left alone and that God's healing power will work its wonders on both.
America, I think right now what we need to do is pray. A change of heart and soul is desperately needed in this land of ours or we are likely to destroy our society. You can pray with me or on your own as you wish, but please take the time to pray and ask Almighty God for comfort and guidance in these perilous time.
We thank Thee for Thy bountiful blessings and Thy love, but we are troubled today. Our country is deeply divided and filled with much anger and hate. Guide us and direct us down the right path and make us aware that we can never reach Eternity and that better place without Thee.
Help us to remember love, not hate. Help us to live our lives as Thou wouldst have us do, not as we think we want to do. Help us to remember and return the greatness of America as a God-fearing land, not a land of greed, selfishness and strife. Help us to keep family strong, not tear it apart. Help us to love the sinner, even though we hate the sin. Help us to appreciate the beauty of this world and all of its natural wildlife, not abuse and destroy it by devious plan and neglect. Help us to find peace, Oh Lord, everlasting peace through Thee. And finally, remind us to never forget what Thy Son, Jesus Christ, did for us on the Cross.
And Lord, make us always mindful of our responsibility for the proper development of our children. May we teach them the proper Christian values of the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount, instilling in them faith, hope and charity through Thy love and grace. These special little ones will one day inherit this earth from us and help them to make it a much better place than we left it.
Guide our leaders, Oh Lord, to make decisions that will be acceptable to Thee and fully support the principles of freedom and individuality that we were founded on. We know that many of them do not share our values and actually scorn us and our belief in Thee. Infect their hearts with Thy love and lead them down the path of righteousness that we so desperately need.
Be with all those in trouble, sick, or traveling, and safely see them through their problems and journeys. We ask in the name of our Savior, Thy Son Jesus Christ, Amen.
Refresh yourselves with God and rest. Be ready to go forth this week determined to bring America back and in so doing change the world for the better. God bless you all and God bless America.
