The Healing of a Nation

Dear Editor,
My friends, would you agree with me that our nation needs to be healed? The question is, “What will heal our nation?” We have such division, corruption and violence.
Can a new president heal our nation? No, he cannot heal our nation.
Can people coming together heal our nation? No, but that sounds good.
So, what will it take to heal our divided nation? It’s really simple. God can heal our nation, but even He cannot heal us until we come to Him in sincere repentance. God wanted to heal Israel too, but they rejected Him and disobeyed Him. Aren’t we the same. Haven’t we taken God out of our nation and snubbed our nose at Him, and said, “We don’t need you. We’ll do it our way.”
I am not talking about everyone doing this. We still have some God fearing people in this nation. But I am saying as a nation we have done this. Taking prayer out of school was the worst thing we could have done. We wonder why we have kids doing violence in our cities. It’s because they have no idea who God is. They haven’t been taught the things of God. Let me leave you with you with two Bible verses concerning our nation.
Proverbs 14:34 – Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people.
Proverbs 11:11 – By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted. But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
My friends, let us pray for our nation. Let us pray for our new president and all our leaders in authority over us. We must pray for a spiritual awakening and a true repentance in this nation. We must return to our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ. Then and only then can our nation be truly healed.
Thank you for reading this message.
