Today is the day that our president has proclaimed as a day to seek the Lord on behalf of our nation. What an important time to seek Him! Our nation is attempting to crawl slowly out from under an economic downturn of great proportions. Our state and national legislative bodies seem completely bent on legislating immorality in the form of new laws that redefine marriage and give special protection to multiple forms of sexual deviancy. New laws that further liberalize abortion are also close to enactment. If all of this is pressed forward, we can expect that God will further remove His hand from our state and nation.
But God listens to prayer! Today, if on any day of the year, we ought to spend some time before the Lord and ask Him to be merciful to us. To reverse the influence of the wicked and strengthen the righteous. To remove those who oppose godliness and common sense. To bring many to salvation and permanent change.
Our prayers count! Spend some time with Him and do what only believers can do! Blessings, PB
