Doing this is probably more important than voting this year
February 09, 2012
I know that our country is in trouble and my first reaction for a solution is to troll through the list of candidates for the answer and this time I'm not finding it.
I found this page at the Billy Graham website asking for people to commit to praying for country and saying that our people have veered away from God and that our problem is one that will be solved only through changed hearts.
Hearts aren't changed for the better through politics. That only happens through God. It posted this Bible verse:
"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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14, NIV).
This is the answer, I know. Oh, I'll still vote, but I don't want to get distracted from the source of the real answer. It's God. That's the only way we will get real change in this country.
