My Constant Companion

I am never alone, You are my savior and best friend.

Clearly, many people who turn to You in an emergency barely know You, if at all. But with a life and death crisis beyond their control…they turn to You to plead for help. We treat You like a nitroglycerin tablet…stored up in a handy place for use in case of heart pain…otherwise, the bottle gathers dust on a shelf out of the way (like the family Bible). Too often I have treated You like an after-thought. Forgive me for not making You the center of my everyday life.

Help Your children refocus our priorities…America has no hope unless You become the center of our families again. With You on the sidelines we are without hope or a future.


Scripture: “Study this Book of the law continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.” Joshua 1:8

God of Love and Justice

America is recreating ancient history.  We have acted corruptly against You, not keeping the commandments You gave Moses.

Like Israel of old, we’ve ignored the God of our fathers.  We are “One nation under God” in name only.  I fear we have removed ourselves from Your blessing. Nehemiah’s observation of Jerusalem could be directed toward America today, “the (people) are in great distress…the wall is broken down and  the gates are burned with fire.” We have treated You and Your Son with disrespect.

We need to fast and pray and seek Your face.  You are the great and awesome God who keeps His word.  Your loving kindness is legendary. Forgive us and heal our land so that we might again become “One Nation Under God”.  Use me, Lord.


Scripture: “…be careful to do according to all the law which Moses commanded you…so that you may have success wherever you go.” Joshua 1:7
