What to Pray For Today?
Its been several days since I’ve posted my prayer for our nation so I’ll be catching up on some things I need to pray for. Of course I’ll be praying for our nations new administration and the new President and his team, the safety of our nation and its citizens, the prosperity of our nation and its citizens, the faith of our Christian believers across the nation and the salvation of the non-believers who live in darkness without hope of an eternity with God.
First, A Praise
Last night, my husband and I were watching a documentary on the 1980 incident at the Titan 2 silo site in Damascus, Arkansas. I would have been in my late 20’s and he in his early 30’s. I really can’t remember anything of the incident. At that age, I was so focused on my activities and my coaching and sports, I paid no attention to news and watched very little TV. After watching the documentary, I now realize how close Arkansas came to being eradicated completely by a nuclear explosion. That would have been the end of us, all due to a simple tool dropping accident.
As I think on this, I am so thankful for a loving God that protected me and many, many others from an awful fate. Our God is so good and so loving and so powerful, He is worthy of my praise and my worship. As I continue to think on this, giving Him my praise, I also wonder what would God do now if another incident happened. Our society has changed so much since the 1080’s and our new distain and ignorance toward the things of God is so prevalent in our society today. I wonder if God will truly lift His hand of protection from our nation and allow such devastating incidents to actually happen. In the documentary, it was stated that many, many close calls happen each year involving nuclear weapons. We are so fortunate that up till now, God has not allowed a true disaster to occur in our country. However, as more and more of our citizens refuse to acknowledge a living, loving, creator God; I wonder if that will change as God lifts His hand of protection from our nation. A nation who in the past few years, has proven an enemy to God’s people of Israel and a support of nations who hate both Israel and the United States.
