Recently, one of the deacons of our church challenged each of us to pray for our government, our leaders and those running for public office. It is time for all Christians, born-again believers, to wake up and call on the God of heaven to heal our land.
I was so disappointed to see the voter turnout results for our county. We have a voice, a God-given right to see that our public, state and federal offices are run by decent, moral, God-fearing men and women.
Our troops are giving their lives every day so that we can enjoy the freedom that we have. We at least need to do our part and support them and elect men and women who are of good report.
Are we using God as a crutch or a guide? I challenge each born-again child of God to pray daily for our elected officials, our country and our troops.
