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!'

Prodigal American Son

I saw one of the many "God Bless America" bumper stickers the other day and it got me thinking again about how Americans want God's blessings, but don't want anything to do with God. Isn't that the story of the prodigal son?
"Give me the inheritance, and I'll be on my way"! The father reluctantly agrees and bids him farewell. The son like blessed America parties down on riotous living, until the money bag is empty.
Isn't that about where we are now. Taking jobs for $8-$10 per hour from Walmart and McDonalds, waiting for Uncle Sam to give us some more pig slop? Well, we're not there yet, but we're falling fast. So many would rather sell their soul to the global socialists movement than return to the father and work with full blessing.
When will America seek the Father again? When there is nothing but tattered rags for clothes, barefoot, and eating pig slop!
