Our nation needs prayer

Between work and moving, the writing commitment is mostly getting squeezed in than intentionally pursued lately, and probably for the next couple weeks or so.

I've had several thoughts today, but one big one that hit earlier was just the reality that roughly half of Americans are OK with abortion. And not just abortion, but millions of abortions. Hundreds of thousands in this country alone are committed every year. It happens with several variations, and none of them are OK.

Our nation needs prayer. I believe God is trying to get our attention. I don't think He has it yet, and His Word describes additional options He can pursue to get it.

We really need to pray for our nation. We need to change our minds about where we are and where we're going. We're not in an OK place. We weren't before the pandemic hit, and right now we're not on track to fundamentally change anything. Our use of images has increased, and that isn't helping.

“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2).

“We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
