Today we pause in reflection and prayer for our country. This is a significant time in our country's history with the events that have taken place this week. These events should rend our hearts even more to seek the Lord's face in thanksgiving for His protection over our nation and His mercy upon our nation which has forsaken His sweet love for the pleasures of the world.
But let us not be quick to judge. As Christians, we also sin. This is a time of repentance. A time to ask God's grace upon our nation and a renewal of hearts toward Him across this blessed land.
"America, America, God shed His grace on thee. And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea."
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
