Return to God

Pray for our nation.  Pray that we will once again stand up for Christ, the Bible and traditional American principles.  Don't let the evils of Radical Islam and Secular Humanism destroy the nation founded on the principles of life, and liberty to be destroyed.

"ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favour and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honourable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogancy, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

Book of Common Prayer, 1928

We need to consider how far we have fallen from our ideals.  We need to return to God and to being a shining light upon a hill; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
