America Needs the Lord

"If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under."
-President Ronald Reagan

Perhaps you feel discouraged. Our country's division, derision, and misdirection really cause many Christian hearts to grieve for America. Yes, it truly grieves our hearts. We hear from many Americans who feel discouraged and depressed. We certainly understand why. But there is hope!

Be encouraged: God can turn this country around. "In God We Trust" remains a must -no matter how we feel. When America was founded, it seemed impossible. Yet God opened doors and guided men (in spite of themselves) to provide a safe haven. We must remember that, with God, all things are possible!

Yet we didn't say that. Jesus did: "But Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'"(Matt.19:26)

Supporting Godly people who run for office is good. But we cannot allow ourselves to put faith in a candidate or cause more than in Christ.

Instead of placing your faith in a presidential candidate, Congress, group, or leader, choose to trust in Jesus today. When you take your burdens to Him, He carries them, He carries you, and He gives you what it takes to emerge victorious. During this time of turmoil, keep your trust in Jesus.

We challenge you to join us in earnest prayer for America. Pray that our nation will turn back to our Lord, Jesus Christ. Concurrently, continue to vote and be active in civics. Prayer coupled with action are important for our future. Click here to see how you can get involved and read our book, Unite the USA. Join our prayer site at www.PrayingPals.org. And pray from your heart.

This month's featured article by Dr. Adrian Rogers is called How to Pray for America. It is our hope that this article will spur you on to sincerely pray for the USA. Never underestimate the power of prayer. The Lord listens to His people. Keep praying and keep asking Him for help, mercy, and redemption for America.

Pray and persevere because Jesus is near...whether you feel it or not. He said, "I am with you always..." That includes now, fellow Christian Americans. That includes now. Let's pray:

"Heavenly Father,

We thank You for being You. Thank You, Jesus, that You promised to always be with those who know You. We love You and thank You for being so patient and gracious with us and with our country. Lord, we ask You to please draw our nation back to Yourself. We humble ourselves and confess our sins, too. We repent. Please forgive us and help us to forgive others while continuing to promote righteousness. Help us to live and love like You. We pray for deliverance from evil, protection, revival, and a great turning of hearts to You. Please use us, Jesus. We praise You and thank You for bearing our burdens. We lean on You now. We praise You!

In Jesus' Name, Amen."

Persevering with prayer,
Carrie and Stacie Stoelting
