Repent and return to "the God that made us!!!"Repent and return to "the God that made us!"

“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power. … But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us. (“A National Day of Fasting, Humiliation, and Prayer.” Proclamation March 30, 1863)” When President Lincoln made this prayer to Almighty God in 1863 he could not have foreseen the degradation and depravity that the United States would descend into by this century. How we need to pray with President Lincoln that we as a nation would return to "the God that made us."

2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

May "the God that made us" have mercy upon America! America - Repent and return to "the God that made us!!!"
