“Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.”Proverbs 14:34 NKJV
When a nation commits itself to wickedness they incur the judgement of the Lord upon them. We have seen this take place in the United States of America. As we have abandoned God and His ways we have welcomed wickedness to rule the land and the issues we face as a nation only continue to increase.
But we who know Jesus must pray and intercede for our nation. Standing in the gap and praying that God’s will be done. God has plans and purposes for America that are not yet completed. May we pray that Godly men and women be raised to positions of leadership and authority. That those whose hearts are committed to wickedness be uprooted from the land. May God’s will be done and His plans and purposes accomplished.
When a nation honors the Lord with its conduct it incurs the blessing of the Lord upon the land. Our prayers are far more powerful than we understand. Let us not listen to the voice of discouragement. Let us be faithful to pray on a daily basis. May God pour out His glory and His Spirit upon our land.
