The Devastation of Our Nation
One of the most devastating occurrences in America in our lifetimes, ranking up with The Supreme Court’s decisions of Roe vs. Wade and Engel vs. Vitale (the removal of prayer from schools), was the election of Barack Obama. I gave a strong warning about what would happen to our nation if he was elected. Sadly, it has all come to pass: a continued liberalization and empowerment of the judicial system in America; a weakened economy (our national debt has doubled in 7 years to $19 TRILLION!); further moral deterioration, along with a rebellion to and mockery of God (does anyone remember the White House lit up in the colors of the LGBT movement after marriage was re-defined by the Supreme Court? If that wasn’t an “in your face” to God and those of us who “cling to their God, guns and religion” by the man who mockingly said it, I don’t know what could ever be!); increased violence; a weakened position in the world, along with a weakened military; the advance of radical Islamist terrorism; a setback in race relations; and more. I rejoice that our nation has been able to elect our first black president. I am deeply saddened, however, that it was Barack Obama. The damage has been so great that America is now one president away from a complete transformation to secularism, a loss of our Judeo-Christian foundation, the loss of our position as the stabilizing force for good in the earth, and the leading voice of the gospel to all the world.
“But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.’” (1 Samuel 16:7; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Repent for the doors of iniquity opened by President Barack Obama, his Cabinet and this Supreme Court. Repent of the blatant mockery of God that has been expressed in this administration. Command the doors of iniquity SHUT!
Intercede and ask the Lord to grant America mercy!
Cry out to God to save us from a further slide down a secular humanistic path that rejects the only One who can save us from our sins—personal and national.
Ask the Lord to give us a President that will restore our position as a stabilizing force for good in the earth. Ask for a restoration of our ability to worship as fully as we want, to proclaim the Word of God in the marketplace, to speak truth in love, and to take the Gospel of the Kingdom to every nation on the earth from these shores!
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we repent on behalf of this governmental administration under Barack Hussein Obama. He has trampled morality and decency, and openly mocked and blasphemed Your Name. Forgive our nation for electing him. We ask for mercy, Lord, for You said that mercy triumphs over judgement, and it is judgement we surely deserve. Please stop this slide into godlessness that we are on! We say, “We desire You, Lord! Visit us again!” Give us a new President tomorrow that will reverse this secular course. Give us a President tomorrow that can be led by You, will reverse legislation that is displeasing to You, and will appoint Supreme Court Judges that will honor the Constitution and judge with righteous judgement. Give us a President that will uphold the first amendment, allowing us true freedom of worship, and may the Gospel go forth across this nation and to the ends of the earth because of our choice! We look to You, Jesus, to save us! Amen.
The Lord will stir His people to elect a man of His own choosing, one whose heart He can touch and who will govern the United States of America in a God-honoring way.
