Please pray for America!

Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis--a conviction in the mind of the people that those liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that His justice cannot sleep forever.   Thomas Jefferson

Our founding fathers were geniuses! They knew (and had experienced) the inherit evil nature of man, and that some men in their greed for power would always try and rule over others. After all, most of them came from England where the King ruled supreme and where the church was part of the government. They knew that only people who believed in God and by His grace aspired to be moral, could actually govern themselves. A strong belief in something greater than yourself and in an ultimate judgment for your actions here on earth, is the only true restraint on bad behavior and provides a natural break on unconstrained capitalism.

Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.  Benjamin Franklin

Our constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.  John Adams

Our forefathers wanted power spread out among the states and the people in the states and they wanted a SMALL central government. They knew that if the national government ever grew too large, the freedom of the people would diminish. And that is exactly what has happened to our country. Not only have we turned away from God and are therefore no longer a moral people, but our government in Washington has exploded. We have departments governing nearly every aspect of life: Education, Transportation, Finance, Property, Retirement, Welfare, Health Care....etc  In 72 of the last 100 years, our government has spent more than it has taken in. Spending on our entitlement programs such as Social Security and Welfare gobble up most of our taxes. Our debt is out of control and there are nearly 5 million people currently on welfare.

We are no longer a Republic, but are shifting towards a socialist state where the government takes care of the people, but in return we lose our freedom, and with our freedom, we lose our zeal, our reason to go on. The American dream will die beneath a pile of bureaucracy and regulations and we will become zombies of the State. We will be told what to eat, what to wear, where to work, how much money we can make.  Don't believe me? Look at the history of Germany, Russia, or Czechoslovakia.

I don't mean to be gloomy, especially during Christmas season, but I fear for my country. And my biggest fear is that most people are sound asleep and either have no idea what is going on, or are so self-absorbed that they won't take the time to find out, or worse, they just don't care. And one day, they'll wake up and find their freedom gone. Forever.

Please wake up and pray for America!             


  1. Friday, Dec 3rd,
    Morning, MaryLu.
    Let's "all" get back to the basics, back to Truth, back to the Word of God:
    "IF My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chron 7:14
    Oh MaryLu ... Amen to all that you shared ... May God forgive all those who have turned away from Him, and are seeking to do "their own thing ... for their own glory ... by their own strength and power" !
    What a mess 'mankind' in general, has made of this World, and, of life itself !
    We "desperately NEED God ... desperately !!! (It's terrible, that the -- Heads of State, Government Officials, and Leaders of today ... cannot/will not - see or acknowledge that.)
    My prayers are with -- Canada, The United States, and, for the 'entire Planet' !
    Yes ... we "need" to wake up, and, PRAY !!!
    Thanks for sharing, MaryLu.
    Take care, and, God Bless,
    In Him, Brenda Hurley

  2. Unfortunately, MaryLu, you are right. Our country Is heading towards a socialist country. The sad thing is, no one seems to care or even notice. They're too busy gathering up things that make them temparily happy, or satisfies their selfish greed. In their opinion, if America goes socialist in order for them to continue to do this, then so be it. I think that if George Washington or Thomas Jefferson were to come to the present from the past, they would be horrified to see what America has become. I hate the direction that America as a nation is going, but I DO believe we are living in the last days. However, I pray for our nation to repent to God before we might be dwelt with like Sodomm and Gomorra...

  3. I hated to be so gloomy so close to Christmas but I'm starting to get a sick feeling in my gut that things are going to change Drastically for the US and Canada and SOON. I just want to wake as many people up as I can. But it seems most prefer to remain asleep. But like you said Eszter, perhaps this is all part of God's plan for the last days... which is cool with me since that means He'll be coming back soon!

  4. Hey MaryLu, you should start the new year off with a nice long newsletter, focusing on this subject. Include quotes and scriptures, challenging readers to do their best to try and reverse this down spiral our country is in. At the least, it will remind others how this country was started, open up a few eyes.....words can be powerful and they can be passed along. Just a suggestion.....good post. *<<<-
