PRAYER Rx --- September 1
Most gracious heavenly Father, forgive us, Your people, for standing by while our nation slips further and further from its Christian heritage. ... Each day we find ourselves being misinformed and misled by those who think that our nation's problems can be solved by more taxes, more policemen, and more government spending. Open our eyes, Lord, to see that these are only "patches" on our country's structure, while its moral foundations are being undermined. ... Help us to see that unless we return to living by Your rules for morality -- unless we teach each generation the value of being personally accountable, responsible, honest and caring -- we will contribute to bringing on the downfall of our nation. ... Oh Lord, help us to see that only repentance will save us -- turning around and deciding to go Your way -- because You can not and will not bless our sinful ways.
In Jesus' name we pray.
