Shepastor: "Prayers For a Divided Nation..."

"If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.” Mark 3:25 NASB

This past election cycle has been dubbed one of the most divisive, brutal, toxic and irreverent in recent history. Some have wondered if our Nation can ever heal from the vitriol. By faith, I make the bold declaration, “Yes We Can!!!”

If we can survive slavery, the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln, J. F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcom X, the Great Depression, the Civil Rights Movement and the breakdown of the Auto and Steel Industries, WE WILL SURVIVE THE AFTERMATH OF THIS ELECTION!!!

It will not, however, be easy. It will take intentionality and hard work.

Here are some things for us to remember and pray for moving forward…

- One of the things that sets America apart as a great nation is the peaceful transfer of power. Let us pray as leadership transitions, the process will be peaceful, respectful and hopeful

- America is more of a “stew” than a “melting pot.” While we are all “Americans,” we are distinct, valuable and an important piece of our fabric. Let us pray that we will increase in our levels of understanding, respectfulness, appreciation for and kindness towards one another

- We can accomplish so much more when we strive to work together. Let us pray that all sides will work towards the common good of all, instead of the partisan politics that have produced historic gridlock

- A divided Nation will fall. Let us pray for the minds, hearts, courage and integrity to move forward as “One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

In Faith, Hope and Perseverance,
Pastor Chris
