What is happening in our nation tells me that democracy is losing. Christianity is losing. Freedom on all fronts is losing. And we voted for it ourselves and I am unable to stop it.
Holy Father, Son of an earthly mother, Spirt that lives within us, please save my nation from itself and bring us to you with open arms.
The government is trying to legally control the churches. Well, the CT govt is trying to legislate how churches may be organized.
Positioning abortion as a good thing for only political, not scientific reasons.
I have dropped most of my political blogs. However, when the pain is severe enough, even those blogging other things will cry out.
Holy God, do not unto us as we deserve. Deliver us in thy mercy. Grant us peace. Help us to do thy will in all our ways.
The Lord is my shepherd.
I shall not want.
He helps me rest in a safe haven when I am weary.
He blesses my soul with refreshment.
He restores the broken places of my soul.
Even though the way around me seems fraught with danger and peril,
I will fear no evil, for my God is with me and if my God is with me, who then shall I fear?
Your strong arm and your rescuing arm comfort me.
You prepare blessings for me even as my enemies plot and dance.
You make my life a fount of good things.
I have far more wonder and beauty in my life than I would ever have expected.
Surely your love and mercy have followed me all the days of my life and will continue to do so until my days end. Thank you for that.
