Definer and Sustainer of Justice

America has made a mockery of justice.  We say wrong is right and memorialize criminals with statues in the public square.

We embrace riots that are “mostly peaceful”  and we praise the mobs intent on intimidating those called upon to weigh our laws’ constitutionality. Virtue is mocked and perversion is the prevailing standard. Please forgive our callous and cavalier hearts that dismiss Your grace while seeking our own “justice”. Individual accountability is rejected. We favor one group over another when administering justice. Mob rule reigns supreme.

I know You love justice and require the consequences of our sin (death) to be fulfilled.  That is why Christ, suffered man’s scorn and died at Calvary.  His innocent blood paid my debts in heaven.  Thank You! Restore justice and righteousness in America.

AMEN

Scriptures:
“Criminals don’t know what justice means, but all who respect the LORD understand it completely.” Proverbs  28:5

“There are those who hate the one who upholds justice in court and detest the one who tells the truth.” Amos 5:10

Lord of Nature

We are blessed with rich soil, abundant fruit, and grain, and a moderate climate.  Our Thanksgiving tables overflow with Your bounty.

But we are being warned Your bounty may not continue.  The coming famine is predicted across America.

Continued drought, the disruptions of war, shortages of farming supplies, and distribution problems will plague the entire world….and, there will be hunger in America, unlike anything we’ve seen in our lifetime.

As devastating as this food shortage may be…there is a more troubling famine affecting our country.  We suffer a famine of spirit.  We are angry, divided, depressed, and fearful…there is no joy in our communities.

Lord, we need manna from heaven to feed our souls more than we need bread for our bodies.  Father, send Your mighty power to relieve the famine of our spirits.

AMEN

Scripture:  “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD, “When I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread or a thirst for water, But rather for hearing the words of the LORD. Amos 8:11
