We Need to Pray

Hello, everyone, as summer turns into fall, our presidential election is getting very close. Perhaps you are weary with all the campaign adds, campaign flyers, yard signs, etc. My friends, I'm ready to elect the next president of the United States, John S. McCain! But, before we start the celebrations, we need to remember that God holds the key.
I believe that we need to pray. Not only for the election, but for our country in general. It just seems there is so much wickedness all around. So many people live as if there is no God, and no judgment. We need to pray that God's will might be done in this election. I know what I want God's will to be, but maybe He has other ideas. My hope and prayer is that God will have mercy on us. Just as Abraham prayed for God to have mercy on Sodom and Gomorrah, I hope that He will have mercy on us. America has been Israel's friend, and God used our former president, Harry S. Truman, as an instrument to help in the establishment of the nation of Israel. Then, there are the many missionaries who have gone out from America to spread the Gospel. There is the American Bible Society and the Gideons who are laboring from America, to spread copies of the Bible around the world. There have been many times, when America has stepped in to help others with financial and material gifts. May God have mercy on us.
