I Have the Answer to this Problem
I voted on the last day of early voting last week. I felt so overwhelmed and
nervous going in and coming out of the courthouse that I started spiritual
warfare. I can't explain it other than to say I felt an oppression like I've
never felt and it compelled me to pray right then and there.
Yesterday and Monday I joined hundreds of my friends in fasting and prayer for this election and our country. The best I could offer was to ask that God's will be done and that He take this country back into the palm of His hands. This is kind of my go-to prayer as of late. It's what I pray when I don't know what else to pray or how to pray. I pray it because I know God hears it. I pray it because it comforts me.
I'm not going to go into the politics or the election any more than that. I educated myself on the candidates and issues and made my choices. I believe they were right because if I didn't I wouldn't have voted the way I did. I trust God will take care of me, my family and my country because he is much bigger than any candidate.
Today however, something else has haunted me. As I watched the election coverage last night I heard two statistics that took my breath away. For the first time in history, there are more unwed mothers in the
Wow. It still gives me pause. More unwed mothers than wed ones.
The second and even more frightening statistic was that 1 in 5 Americans now claim to have no belief in God. In a nation that was founded under God, one--fifth of its inhabitants no longer believe there is a God.
These statistics cannot be blamed on any president or government leader. This begs the question - whose fault is it?
Our country is in a moral crisis. Our values, the ones we all used to hold true, have been totally turned around. In trying to love everyone, we’ve failed to toe the line. Nothing is good or bad, true or untrue any more. This leaves no one in charge. Everyone makes his or her own choice according to how he or she feels.
