Happy fourth of July. You represent in so many ways the American dream and what freedom truly means in this country. Perhaps that is why I am prompted to write to you on this day.
In all honesty our politics are very different and there are many values which we do not share, however I'm not writing today to tell you what I think you're doing wrong, or how you shouldn't be re-elected. No, today I'm writing to tell you that I am praying for you and all our nations leaders.
Quite frankly it doesn't matter who get's elected this fall if our nation isn't praying. You see, there is no single politician, or political party for that matter that can change this nation and fix all it's ills. The job is simply too big. I truly believe though that God can, and that is why I pray.
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."
Mr. President, I want a healed land. I want to see the end of poverty, lower unemployment and affordable health care too. I so badly want to see Christian values reflected in this nation again, but I know you don't hold the power to unlock, this my American dream. So I pray for you, and have been praying for you since you were elected.
I believe this is a blessed nation Mr. President, and I look forward to the changes that God can bring if we only turn to our creator and pray.
