America has more Christians, more churches, more Christian bookstores, more Christian radio and TV stations, more preachers, teachers, prophets, apostles, evangelists, pastors, more, more, more than any nation in the history of the world.
But all of this bounty brings a higher degree of accountability for our nation before the throne of God:
And a servant who knows what the master wants, but isn’t prepared and doesn’t carry out those instructions, will be severely punished.
But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required. (Luke 12:47-48 NLT)
Looking at what America has and then looking at these two verses, I fall to my knees and weep.
My prayer today:
Lord, be merciful to America, for we are a nation of sinners before You. (Based on Luke 18:13)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.
