“Lord, please help me help America!”
This is a prayerful affirmation I recite in the wee hours of the morning while writing or before sleep.
Some pray for Divine Intervention for themselves, their family, or their particular group.
I cast my spiritual net more widely, confident in the saying that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” I believe that helping the country as a whole helps my particular community too.
We’re in crunch time as a Republic, and balkanization ill-serves a nation whose misery is now truly integrated.
Once-reliable ethnic, educational, and employment safeguards have fallen by the wayside.
Our “non-economy” (as I call it) and Obama’s anti-job growth policies make beseeching Providence all we have left while struggling beneath this yoke.
A financially sound, stronger, more moral America benefits everyone, including Americans who may dislike each other for various reasons.
This isn’t an appeal to sentimentality- it’s a call to ask God to lift up our attempts to ensure national survival.
As our prayers go outward, let those who are willing draw together around common allegiance to traditional values and what’s left of the free market.
Belief in a Higher Power was what kept Americans as diverse as revolutionaries, slaves, and even astronauts resolute in the face of tremendous challenges.
We need to close ranks, lest despair and divisiveness fill the gaps and wreak even more havoc.
Much as we prize personal, family, and community well-being, asking for America to be blessed ultimately safeguards our individual stake, too.
That’s why I ask each of us to pray for the Lord to help us help America, all of America, instead of just our favorite part.
We are one expanded family who has to finally put aside differences to rescue all we hold dear.
