“‘As our nation finds itself in yet another highly divisive election season, our tendency can be to draw firm lines between ourselves based on which candidates we support, and that can in turn lead to personal dislike for one another, anger towards those who lead, and eventually division.’
‘As Christians, we are to live in a fine balance; standing for that which is true while seeking unity amongst ourselves whenever possible, standing firm in the faith while showing grace to those who do not, holding our leaders accountable while praying for their wisdom and well-being.’
‘We are to learn from the words of Ezekiel 22:30, “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.” We are to be those who stand in the gap, who lift up our nation with all it favors and faults before the throne of God and pray that He continues to work in our midst.’
‘We may not have the power to meet the President or other authorities in our government, but we can pray for them, and God can do mighty things through our prayers. We may not be able to change other peoples’ hearts or minds with our words, but we have the power to pray for them and see God [divine intervention] in their hearts through our prayers.'”
This is not written for a debate but a request to pray for America. It seems representation of constituents have been replaced with power seekers, the love of money, possessions, positions and other ulterior motives. We have lost our way in this country and in the world; it saddens me.
However, there is much written in the Bible about what is happening, and things must play out until Jesus’ return. Our original perfect world is gone never to return as men’s hearts get wicked.
