There is a real wave of discouragement and despondency sweeping through
America these days. For many, it seems as though our nation is on the path of no

Lord, we certainly deserve Your judg-
ment. As a nation, we have sinned against
You in virtually every way. We have delib-
erately tried to remove You from public life.
We have squandered wealth, chosen conve-
nience over life, abused the weak, dishon-

of judgment, pour out Your mercy. We need
the healing that only You can provide. Bring
again to our nation Your health, Your peace
and Your security.
