For this I labor and struggle, in accord with the exercise of His Power working within me. Colossians 1:29
We celebrate the worker today while many people are searching for the answer to revive America as One in God to prove our country was and always will be God-fearing. For generations upon generation has been praying before meals in public, before any football game or sporting event and work force meetings at a job seeking the American Dream, right? Of course we have but we as Americans have always strayed from absolute statements that our nation is a Christian Nation. It is nowhere in the Constitution, the law abiding document that doesn’t even mention the word God.
Our Founding Fathers told King George III of England we are all created equal by a Creator in the Declaration of Independence; “we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator,” but nothing about God in our laws because America wanted “Freedom of Religion.” Moreover, that is what we have, Freedom of Religion where anyone can practice anything they want anywhere they want.
We are free to pray in public as long as it is not at a state and federally supported event. We are free to pray in silent anywhere at anytime with anyone. Paul tells us in Colossians we must rejoice in these sufferings on behalf of Christ, “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ on behalf of His Body, which is the Church. Colossians 1:24 We are searching to revive an America that has stood by and allowed God to be separated by many who feel are the minority in America. So I propose we as the majority exercise our every right to pray and demonstrate in public the desire to pray for our nation’s faith, forgiveness and future.
I labor on as His Power is working in me to provide a place of faith for America to experience forgiveness providing for a brighter future for all. God has blessed our nation because we were always a God-fearing nation even if we didn’t put God in our laws or make an absolute statement of such. We have mixed words with wisdom allowing a secular world to separate our need to thank our God establishing the desire for an immediate revival. We have to pray for our nation’s faith, forgiveness and future. We have to use our own laws to create a state of revival where we begin to pray for everyone we meet while establishing “Prayer Points” across our cities, nations and the world.
In your neighborhood begin by asking the people who are prayerful if they’d come to a weekly outside prayer somewhere in the neighborhood to pray for a short few minutes for our nation’s faith, forgiveness and future. Look for ways to tell other people to do the same thing in their neighborhoods. Most of us go to church once a week but our nation needs prayer in abundance where there is no limit on how much we share with each other. Pray for our nation’s faith, forgiveness and future. Please pray.
So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today Your Hand will guide our labor and struggle to bring our nation back to faith. LORD, show us the Way of Your Son’s Truth. We pray for my daughter Alexandra’s peace and healing. We pray for Paula Heidorn leaving Orlando today for her Mission Trip to Uganda. We pray this in the Jesus Name. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

The sufferings real
Lack of faith
Pushing God out
Describing real hate
Resolve to embrace
The suffering of hate
God’s stewardship reward
