Please Join me this Independence Day to pray for America to come back to God. America once stood for things that were just and Godly. Only a few short years ago, People could allow their kids to play outside without being kidnapped or injured by someone else. I remember as a small child playing outside with my older sisters, enjoying the woods, the nature and sounds of birds singing or crickets chirping. We didn’t have to worry about danger all around us or someone trying to harm us.
In the last few years I have seen America become something that is vile and unacceptable in the sight of God. I do not write this to say that I am perfect by any means, but I do know that people influence other people. That is to say people- children learn by others. If a child hears his parents cursing- he grows up to think it is acceptable. Now some parents laugh when they hear their child curse for the first time- thinking it is cute.
Now what used to be a limited amount of channels on the television, with shows such as ‘Andy Griffin Show’, have included hundreds of channels showing all sorts of perverted things. What used to be clean programs such as cartoons of ‘Bugs Bunny’ now include cartoons of homosexuality, adultery, etc…. Not forgetting the openly mature movies of sexual content, witchcraft and sorcery now playing on every theater in the nation.
At first a southern girl living in a respectable town of 1000 now lives in a town of tattoo parlors, beer joints, dancing clubs, gay pride parades and homosexual mayors. A once respected nation that upheld the Constitution now defies the laws allowing things that are not unlawful to take place. People used to know what was evil and stand against it. People never dared to spread their vulgar ideas and beliefs on others, but now are trying to openly make others stand with them -and are succeeding. People are saying don’t offend them but they don’t mind offending God. They lie, steal, curse and use God’s name in vain. They make idols and Satanic statues and place them in front of public government buildings. The truth is not being preached but sugar coated, so as not to lose members.
Now is the time to come back to God. If there was ever a time in your life to pray, repent, seek the Heavenly Father and beg for his mercy and grace, now is the time to do so. Now is the time to respect the house of God, to keep the Sabbath as holy, and to reverence the Almighty God. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “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.”
Leviticus 19:12- And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.

Leviticus 19:4-Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the Lord your God.
Leviticus 19:11,12-Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another. And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.
Leviticus 19:13,15-Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.
Leviticus 19:18-Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord.
Exodus 20:3-5-Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Exodus 20:7-Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Exodus 20-13-16-Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Leviticus 18:22-Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Romans 1:25-27- Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Romans 1:29-31- Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
