If You Love the U.S.

Now that the perpetuators have been killed or captured is there anything we need to do about the events in Boston on Patriots’ Day? Should we just forget about it, put it in the past and continue with our lives or is there more we should be doing.
Stop and think about all that has happened in America the past 12 months. There were the killings at the theater in Aurora, the slaughter at Sandy Hook in Connecticut, and what seems like daily drive by killings of children in our cities. There was the drought last summer, tornadoes, mudslides, fires, Hurricane Sandy and the flooding this spring in the Midwest. Exactly how many winter storms have we been hit with this year, some even in April?
We see disaster after disaster hit our country and we just keep going on with our lives. Isn’t it time that we did something about it? Shouldn’t we stop pretending that our government can solve these problems? Isn’t it time we seriously turned to God and asked for His help?
Forget the flag waving and the patriotic emails the most patriotic thing you can do for your country is to begin to seriously pray for America every day. One day of prayer is not enough; we need to pray for this country every day.
Don’t pray for any particular party; pray for the American people. Pray that we change and become a people worthy of God’s blessings. Pray for your own conversion and the conversion of all in this nation. Pray for the conversion of any and all politicians. All of them need conversion in some way. Pray for the conversion of those in the media. Pray for a revival in this country and let the Holy Spirit work out the details.
Again if you love this land: pray!
