Regardless of who we voted for, it is high time to pray for our president and all who aid him in making decisions; that God will guide them to make right choices for our welfare. I don't think there is any other person except God who, on his own, can stop the wave of evil that rushes toward us. The waters of evil in our country grows deeper all the time, and we need help. We must get on the right track and pray for God to intervene.
Joey and I recently spent a week in Springfield with Freddy (my son) and his wife, Cindy. We hit balls on a driving range, saw two shows in Branson, shopped a lot, ate a lot and saw a lot of stuff in Springfield. We had a great time.
Freddy preaches and teaches in the Springfield jail, where about 800 inmates are held, waiting for the time their trials come up. Fred goes four days every week and tells me that he and the other volunteers have a good success rate. There are many conversions and a baptismal service is held once a month. We need to pray for those who are in jail or prison, because people can, and do, repent and turn themselves over to God. WE were all on the outside before we were taken into the Kingdom of God.
I imagine prisoners would have the same traits as any other group of people, although traits and their intensity may vary widely. If we could examine any group of people, and look into their hearts, we would find degrees of evil in some, degrees of kindness and love in some, and lots of varying and overlapping in all. Only God can help a person get that all worked out for the good, if the person longs for a life-change.
We all have the privilege of forgiveness and eternal salvation whether we live in the prison, the White House, or even in my house or yours. God listens for SOS calls and He takes every call. He does heart checks on a regular basis. Isn't that a good thing to know? Every person who is able to call on God has the same opportunity. Let us now send up prayers in a great, might wave of praise and trust, to our Lord and God, for our country, our leaders, and for those everywhere who are bound by the devil and his devices. Amen.
