Thursday is the National Day of Prayer.
Across our county, state and country, people are being called to prayer for our country.
More than 200 years ago, our founding fathers organized our country on Biblical principles. Congress printed the first Bible in the United States. Bible was taught every day at church, school and in the home. I understand that there have always been people who don't believe and people that believe different than I do, but our country was founded on Judeo-Christian values that work.
President George W. Bush spoke at the opening of a youth center at Oak Cliff Bible Church several years ago. He said that the best welfare system is on the corners of streets all over our communities, run by social entrepreneurs with a rule book that has worked for thousands of years. President Bush was right, America knows how to fix the problems. Today, we need to stay committed to the steps that provide the solution. The first step is to seek the Lord.
Today, may we pray as one voice to the Lord asking for revival in our homes, communities and our country. May we pray for the Lord's protection and guidance. May we pray that our country's leaders are given a double dose of the Lord's wisdom. May the Lord keep our military and their families at home safe. May we come together for a common goal for the common good.
Today and every day, may the Lord bless you and yours!
