The world seems to be in a complete state of
chaos. The news is so full of gloom and
doom. We are in recession. Many have lost
their jobs, their homes and their savings
because of people who were and are corrupt.
Our government leaders cannot agree on
anything and get along. We have and are
facing government shutdowns. Their egos have
gotten so in the way; each person wants to
have his own way and not be willing to
compromise. Lord, they need to look up to
you and seek your guidance.
I am sure you must look down on the earth
sometimes and be reminded of Sodom and
Gomorrah. So many are living in the fast
lane and anything goes such as
homosexuality, transsexuality, pornography.
The internet has opened up all kinds of
perversions. Children are cutting
themselves, small children are being pushed
into modeling; anorexia and other various
eating disorders are on the rise.
So many more people are homeless, some
through no fault of their own. Some of this
is caused by them losing their jobs; some
have returned from the military with various
problems such as Post Traumatic Stress
God, please heal our nation and bring
restoration. Let your mercy overflow in us
and cleanse us by the blood of Jesus. You
are the firm foundation. One thing we know
for sure, when ev≠erything appears to be
falling apart, we can always trust you. As
Christians, we donít live as the world lives
because you are our comforter and our
strength. We donít look to the government as
our deliverer, but we keep our eyes on you
and look UP.
Thank you, God, for sending Jesus to die on
the cross for our sins.
In Jesusí name, I pray,
Your humble servant, Myrl Betts
