I think you all know that my heart breaks for the killing of our most innocent and defensless people- the babies not yet born.
My heart is very heavy as we approach this election- our current president encourages women to kill their children and does everything in His power to ensure that they won't even have to pay for it.
I worry about the judgement of God on our once-Christian nation. He does not tolerate the merciless killing of the defenseless. In fact, He is their Defender.
I pray that we will heed His call to repentance. I pray that in November our country will choose to elect leaders that are more in line with God's ways than the leaders we currently I have. I pray that the tide will turn and our hearts will soften. I pray for revival in our land, that this country that was founded on God's principles would return to Him and continue to receive His blessings and be a Light in this world.
I read Psalm 5 this morning. I think I will be praying it for a while, maybe till November. It sums up what I need to say to God so well.
Give ear to my words, O Lord,
Consider my meditation.
2 Give heed to the voice of my cry,
My King and my God,
For to You I will pray.
3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord;
In the morning I will direct it to You,
And I will look up.
4 For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness,
Nor shall evil dwell with You.
5 The boastful shall not stand in Your sight;
You hate all workers of iniquity.
6 You shall destroy those who speak falsehood;
The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
7 But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy;
In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple.
8 Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies;
Make Your way straight before my face.
9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
Their inward part is destruction;
Their throat is an open tomb;
They flatter with their tongue.
10 Pronounce them guilty, O God!
Let them fall by their own counsels;
Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions,
For they have rebelled against You.
11 But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You.
12 For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
Opening my mouth for the innocent, for those sentenced to die.
