God bless America

To the Editor: My Bible tells me that whoever has hatred has lying lips. Whoever spreads slander is a fool. The Bible also asks why are some people so mean. The truth is that until they are redeemed, they don’t want to hear the truth. Is it any wonder that people whose hearts are driven by pride, greed, anger, jealousy, envy and self-centeredness act hatefully toward God’s people — especially toward President Trump?

Some athletes take a knee during our national anthem. In all of history, there has been only one nation like America — founded by pilgrims seeking freedom to worship, established on a vast continent between two oceans, dedicated to the proposition that we are created equal and endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. One nation, under God. You have delivered us in war, prospered us in peace, and raised up generations willing to offer the last full measure of their devotion for the preservation of liberty at home and abroad.

We have been a light for the world. From our shores has gone the greatest missionary force in history. But now, America has fallen into darkness, disobedience, and indifference. We have sinned, and we, Your people, Lord, humble ourselves and pray, and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways. Please forgive our sin and heal our land. Give us leaders who understand the times and know what we should do. May the torch of liberty burn brightly, inflamed by the goodness of Your people.
