“Hear me as I pray, O LORD. Be merciful and answer me! My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “ LORD, I am coming.””Psalms 27:7-8 NLT
If we and our posterity reject religious instruction and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution which holds us together–no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us, that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity!
– Daniel Webster, 1872-1852
“If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways–then I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me. The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.”
Psalm 138:7-8 ESV
