We can enjoy and be very thankful to God for this wonderful freedom that we share in this great nation. We can be very thankful to those who have given and who are presently giving their lives to keep this freedom. Freedom is a sacred, universal, God-given quest for every living soul. Our fore-fathers sought and fought for this freedom, laying their lives down, and if we are going to keep it, we must fight for it today. One woman wanted to take prayer out of school; she fought for it, the opposition caved, and she got it. A precedent was set. Next went discipline, and on we could go with what we have lost because of not standing for what is right. We can’t be wimpy and win. If we don’t stand for what we know is right, we fall for all kinds of wrong. The result is that a whole generation has their foundation for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness completely undermined. They wander in the wilderness in utter chaos with no standard to hold to, and the leadership coming out of this mentality, guides the whole nation into bondage. The solution is much bigger than what any one man or group can implement. It is a God job set before us, and with God we must begin to truly turn our nation if we want to continue to have our freedom. “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” (2 Chronicles 7:14). A little nonchalant chit-chat with God won’t get it. When a child really wants something from a parent, they persist until they have that parent’s face turned toward them with their full attention in order to get what they want. True prayer, using the two-edged sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God, is the great weapon which has the power to redeem our nation. With this, and the corresponding action that we must take to get the job done, we can wake ourselves and wage a warfare that will win back the principles of freedom upon which we were founded. We can be wimps or winners. The choice is ours. Through true prayer, with faith and thanksgiving, we can win the war that is set before us.
