Powerful Words

These eloquent and poignant words of the fourth and last verse of our national anthem, written by Francis Scott Key in 1814, couldn't be more fitting today. It's a shame that this verse is seldom sung at public events, because ... in light of the way things are in today's world ... I think its words would touch the hearts of all Americans who love this great country of ours.

They touched MY heart and inspired me to share these powerful words here, and offer them as a prayer for America:

"May the heav'n rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto:  'In God is our trust.'"

And may God please save America from those who want to destroy it.

I pray God will give us a new leader who will help turn our nation back to be the great and God-fearing nation we were in the past. If only we would obey:

"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV
