A Prayer for America

February 19, 2019 by Dr. Jack Graham

“Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved!”

—Psalm 80:3

Our Judeo-Christian values, biblical values in particular are under attack in our nation. We know that, especially when it comes to Christians who boldly share their faith in the marketplace, or in the schoolyard or locker room or corporate office. There’s increasing resistance to that. If you are so bold to say that Jesus is [John 14:6] “the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father except by Him,” expect that faith to be under attack.

There’s growing toleration of immorality in America. Many even in the so-called Christian Left support gay marriage, and sinful lifestyles that the Bible directly condemns. The reason is there are many false prophets that have gone out into the world, who [Isaiah 5:20] “call evil good”, as Isaiah said, “and good evil.” There’s a lack of biblical authority, starting in our pulpit and many of our Christian universities, therefore, there is a biblical illiteracy. There is a famine in the land for the Word of God!

Our nation has been drifting away from God and we are one generation away from paganism unless we turn to God! America is becoming Rome and the barbarians are at the gate! This is spiritual warfare, and spiritual warfare is fought on our knees as we pray and seek God! We’re at the crossroads! Now is the time. If we don’t act quickly and wisely, we will see the end of the nation that we love in no time.

But we have, in my view, an opportunity. God has given us space for repentance, and an opportunity for God’s people to stand and serve and make a difference in our world. That’s religious freedom.
