Father, we come to You to pray for our nation, the United States of America.
How You have blessed us through the years, Lord! We rightly sing, “America, America, God shed His grace on thee.” Yet we see trouble in our culture today. We see the breakdown of the family, crippling addictions, and random acts of horrific violence.
Lord, we need Your help in America. In recent days, we have done our best to remove Your Word and Your counsel from our courtrooms, classrooms and culture. It seems, as President Lincoln once said, that we have “forgotten God.” But Lord, You have not forgotten us! You can bless and help and revive our country again.
Scripture tells us that “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). Lord, in Your mercy, we ask that You would exalt our country again. We have had a number of great awakenings in America. We have experienced times of refreshing, and revivals that changed not only the spiritual but also the moral landscape. As the psalmist said, “Will You not revive us again, so that Your people may rejoice in You?” (Psalm 85:6)
That is our prayer for America today, Lord. Send a mighty spiritual awakening that will turn the hearts of men and women, boys and girls back to you. You have told us if we will humble ourselves and pray, and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways, that You will forgive our sins and heal our land. (2 Chronicles7:14)
Forgive us today, Lord, and heal this troubled land that we love so much.
We ask all of this in the name of Jesus Christ.

Are you looking for something for someone special to give them this year? Do you know how to bless your family and friends?
It is a season of gift giving and there can be a lot of pressure to get just the right gift for each and every one and not to forget anyone either. It can be really hard too because some people already seem to have everything and some people seem to need everything and you do want to bless and give and not offend and not forget. May I suggest you stop and ask the Lord how to bless your family and friends. Then you might actually ask the person who you are struggling with in your mind, how you can bless them. You might even be surprised at the answer.
Sometimes the best gifts are family treasures passed on appropriately. Sometimes they are the gift of time and talents and then there is a touch and a smile and a hug. There is a loving word at the right moment. There are planned events and times together sharing laughter and tears and memory of other special times together with friends and family — special moments that last forever!
I am wanting to give my family some little family treasures. They aren’t gold and silver (most of them) but momentos from my mom and dad that part of the gift is researching the meaning behind the momento and documenting the story for the family. I will share some of them here and show you what I mean over time, but right now I want to tell you about a very special gift that I received from my sister and her husband last night. Years ago when in DC on political affairs and going from meeting to meeting trying to get Congressmen to ‘do the right things’ and build bridges to effective networks, I viewed the Kennedy Center from afar. I always wanted to go there and last night we did. The family had perfect seats for a wonderful musical/dance story full of history and entertainment. We saw “Billy Elliott: The Musical.”
It was a wonderful evening and the fulfillment of a dream for me!
Thanks to my family for making it possible for me to go and be a part of the adventure with me!
