Why We Are Losing The Culture War

Why We Are Losing The Culture War

Can there be any doubt after the recent Supreme Court Decision regarding same-sex marriages that we are losing badly in the Culture War? Take a good look at this country and what do you see? Race riots, violence, crime, pornography, an epidemic of STD’s, adultery being common, a fascination with the occult, half of all marriages failing, rampant addiction, gambling and alcoholism. You can’t watch much decent stuff on TV because it doesn’t exist. Why are things so bad? How did we go so wrong?

Why are we losing the Culture War so badly? Maybe it’s because we operate under the illusion that our enemies are President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Nancy Pelosi. We fight them using the methods of politics or should I say the weapons of Satan who is our real enemy.

Our battle is not just political but a spiritual battle. We fight for the soul of America. Our goal is not really to win votes but to win hearts and souls for Christ. If we do this the votes will follow.

We can not rely on political methods to defeat Satan. After all he invented them. Negativity, anger and character assassination has no place in our battle strategy. What has all the speeches, political ads, attacks on President Obama and nasty emails accomplished? Didn’t he win re-election?

If we want to defeat Satan and pull America out of its current descent into Hell we must make prayer our primary weapon. If people said 50 or 100 prayers for every negative email conservatives send this country would be radically different today. Prayer, intensive daily prayer is the answer. We must pray as hard as we would if the enemy was at the gates because He is.

We cannot give up. We cannot quit. We need to pray and go after souls. We need to say this country the only way possible by praying as if our very lives depended on it.

It is not too late. In the book of Kings in the Old Testament the Assyrians as bad as Isis were at the very gates of Jerusalem. King Hezekiah of Judah called on the people to pray. The next morning there were 170,000 Assyrians dead from a plague and the Assyrian army in full retreat.

We need to pray and pray hard now not just before the election.

Lord, we repent of the ways we have contributed to America’s moral decline, our sins and selfishness, our embracing politicians who only pay you lip service. We pray for our country that has turned away from the path you laid out for it. Send your spirit upon us, help us to turn from the evil surrounding us. Bless your church in America. Help us to turn back to you and abandon the political correctness we have adopted. Point out the ways we have erred and grant your churches leaders who truly follow you.

Bless your people with spiritual and political leaders who are not afraid to speak the truth with love. Give us the courage and wisdom we need to speak out in truth. Give us the courage we need to reach out to those who are hurting, to those who are being led to hell. Let us be more concerned about winning souls rather than votes.

After saying this prayer offer whatever prayers you feel most comfortable with for a revival in America.
