Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation



: 'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance.
We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free.
:
: Amen!'

Blurring Truth with Popularity

One smart guy says, Social media is ripping society apart, blurring the lines between truth and popularity. Furthermore, with money and social media tools we can multiply the effect.

The Election

Just a thought:
It seems as though God has said, "You want a nation without me, let's just see who you choose to lead you"! I think he is laughing and crying at the same time. Who knows maybe there is some unforeseen event for which one of these clowns is being divinely being installed, but it sure looks bad. The Heavens feel like brass.

Gog and Magog Warming Up

I've always thought that the War of Gog and Magog, Mesch and Tabul (EZE 38 & 39) would take place just prior to the tribulation or yearly on.
It is of great note that the seeds of this war are beginning to sprout. Recently in the news, in the same week, Putin visited Egypt and the leaders of the Turkish government cannot say enough curses at Zion.
Add to that the alienation of Israel by our government, twice refusing The Israel Prime Minister, while allowing Iran (Persia) to continue its quest of nuclear weapons.
It is only a matter of time before Israel take self-protective action and the whole world comes down on them.
God is preparing this war to make know his name. The utter natural disaster destruction of all of the invading armies will be undeniably from God.
The stage is set, the audience has been seated, and the curtain is about to go up, the fat lady just cleared her throat.

Martin Luther Quote

"I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God."
- Martin Luther the Reformer

We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven.

We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity.

We have grown in numbers, wealth, and power, as no other nation has ever grown.

But, we have forgotten God...and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all of these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.

Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.
