I received this in an email today. Graham’s prayer is the prayer that we all should pray. It shows that he strongly believes that our world has become corrupt in its ways.
“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!”
America needs to wake up and realize that God is and has always been and will always be in control. If our nation does not recognize this, then we are headed for sudden destruction. We can either to chose to be for God (100%, no luke-warm) or we can be against Him. I know whose team I want to be on. We need to remember what happened to the Israelites because they did not obey God. They spent over 200 years in bondage in Egypt and then spent 40 years wondering in the wilderness.
If our nation insists on living by fleshly desires, fornicating, indulging in alcohol and drugs, aborting unborn humans, murdering, etc. , then we will find ourselves in the same punishment that the Israelites went through. How much more does God have to do to get our attention? As a nation, we have had several economic hardships, natural disasters (eathquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, avalanches, floods, etc.) that has taken many lives. What is it going to take to get our attention.
We can no longer consider our nation a Christian nation. We have turned our backs on God. Let’s pray that America will turn back to God before God turns His back on America.
