If you are like me, you are alarmed at the direction our country is headed. As a mother of two and grandmother of five, I have seen first-hand the disastrous effects our culture has on our families. It is heartbreaking, and no matter how hard you think you have worked to protect your children, the outcome can literally take the wind right out of your sails. My righteous anger catapults me into an understanding of urgency. Our children, grandchildren, and future generations need an army to rise up to do whatever it takes to protect them. We have sat back for too long believing the lie that “our vote doesn’t count,” or “there is no one on the ballot I can support.”
I know many of you share in the frustration of the political parties. We have been lied to, cheated on, and abandoned. However, if I really believe God is the author of it all, then I must take comfort in Romans 13:1 “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.”
I think of Saul who later became Paul. A murderer, who intentionally sought to kill those who believed in Jesus. How on earth could God use a murderer for His good? We may not have our ideal options for leadership of this great nation, but what we do have is a God who is bigger than all of the disappointment, corruption, and culture disintegration. We must never forget that God can take the unlikely and use them in a mighty way. Our future generations are counting on us to rise up. Will you join our effort to return America to One Nation under God?
We have included for you a comparison of the party platforms, 2016 Party Platform Comparison. You can review the Republican platform outlined in red and the Democratic platform outlined in blue. We want to urge you to take the time to look these over and pass them out to your neighbors, friends, church leaders, and anyone in your sphere of influence who could benefit from knowing the truth.
Pray: Nehemiah 4:10 “And I looked and arose and said to the nobles and to the officials and to the rest of the people, ‘Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.’ Please pray about how you can make a difference in restoring America to One Nation under God.
