A Prayer for America by Cindy Hester

Dear heavenly Father, we all need you so,
Without you, dear Lord, our fears seem to grow.
I cannot know just what is to be,
Your word gives me promise, You'll take care of me.

When looking around at our current state,
It seems there's such anger, such pain, and such hate.
It's time we remember what made us so strong,
To honor the country to which we belong.

United we stand, divided we fall,
It is time that we hasten to answer Your call.
A call to Your children to hear and obey,
So far from Your calling we seem to have strayed.

Freedom and liberty can only exist
In responsible hearts and released, opened fists.
Without respect, love, pride, and justice for all,
Self-interests could cause our great country to fall.

It's time we remember as Your children so blessed,
We must seek Your guidance to pass through this test.
Only You have the answers for the problems we face,
May we fall on our knees and seek Your sweet grace.

"But if my people, who are called by my name, will 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
