Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.

Psalm 33:12

I don’t usually like to go political, especially in devotions, but a visit by the Vice President of China had me wondering what other countries think of the United States. Would they call us a Christian nation anymore?

Yes, we send aid to other countries when disasters hit and we try not to start wars for our own gain. But most of us in the U.S. worship ourselves and money more than God. Our values change with the day and center on what is the most convenient for us and what makes us most happy.

I’d love to see that change. I’m sure there are blessings God wants to give our country that we are missing out on because we don’t follow His ways. What can we do about it?

The best action is prayer. Pray for a revival in this nation, so we can once again be one nation under God. So we can set a godly example for the rest of the world.

Dear Lord, let us be people of prayer. You want to steer hearts back to You and we long for revival. Help us to be faithful prayer warriors for this country. In Jesus’ name, amen.
