This Christmas we are all thinking of the tragic terrorist acts that have come to American soil. It’s not something that will stop us from celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a reason to lay our needs and wants at the feet of God, in Jesus Name.
So today, let’s prepare the way of the Lord by praying for the country we love and care for so much!These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. – Proverbs 6:16-19
If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. – 2 Chronicles 7:14
We have so many needs to pray for. God promised to heal our wicked land if we will humble ourselves and pray. It’s an important part of preparing for Christmas – so let’s humbly bow before God in prayer today.
Isn’t it sad that we want God to bless America, yet we don’t respect or value His precepts and His laws? We want a scientist to come up with a cure for a disease, yet what if he / she was aborted and not given the opportunity to live, grow and develop the talent given by his / her Maker that would allow that cure to come to be. I mean, think about it…
Thou shalt not kill is not a suggestion. None of the Ten Commandments are suggestions – they are laws. To break them is to sin. Sin needs to be forgiven by God. Keep praying for our sinful nation. 🙂
