Intercede for Our Nation!

May this be the prayer of all our hearts.

Dear God,
I'm so sorry that my country, my home land has turned from you and into terrible ungodliness. Please show me how I can play a part in bringing us back to you. It is scary the direction that we are turning with ungodly leaders. No longer are we obeying you and chastising those who do otherwise. Now we applaud evil and promote sin! God, how far we have come from you! Our nation was founded on your holy words and principles. We once were a Christian nation! But alas, no longer! We have come so far away from you it is a wonder that you can forgive us! But I thank you and praise you that you are good and that you still love us even while we are still sinners. Thank you that you sent your perfect son to die for us wicked people so that we could be spared from eternal death and live with you forever. Knowing how it grieves my heart to see how evil America has become, I know that it grieves your's even more. Isaiah 5:20 says, "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet  and sweet for bitter!" In 2 Corinthians 7:14 you say that if we humble ourselves before your throne and intercede for our country, that you will heal it. So now, God, I am pleading that you heal America! We call ourselves Christians but yet we praise evil! Please, God. Heal America!

  2. DEATH PENALTY FOR THE UNBORN? BY STEVE FINNELL

    Is the death penalty for the unborn a sin? Some would say, yes with the exception of those babies that were conceived in rape and incest or those killed to protect the life of the mother.

    Questions:

    1. Would those who advocate killing innocent babies that were conceived by rape be willing to give a death sentence to the guilty rapist?

    2. Would they be in favor of executing the adult that is guilty of incest or is pronouncing a death sentence for the unborn the only moral choice.

    3. Can killing the unborn really protect the life of the mother? If killing unborn babies makes women healthier, then why not abort all babies. How can killing babies save women's lives?

    If killing babies can save the life of the mother, then why is not the opposite true. Can killing the mother saved the life of the baby? Of course not, and killing babies does save mothers lives.

    Killing the innocent is murder. Matthew 5:21 "You have heard that it was said of old 'You shall not murder,' and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgement.(NKJV)

    Can abortion be forgiven? Yes. Through Jesus Christ. John 3:16, Acts 2:38, Romans 10:9, Mark 16:16.
