Ladies and Gentlemen, sometimes we read about things that really speak to our soul.

A Culture Drowning in Rage

What do you see as the biggest issue facing the American church today?

We have lost the ability to have Christlike conversation and civil discourse. Even just a few years ago, you might have been at my house. We’d be having some iced tea on the front porch and debating an issue we disagreed on. We could agree to disagree. I might stand up and say, Do you need some more tea before dinner?

Now, sadly, we hear so many stories of people saying: Get off my front porch. Give me my tea glass. You’re no longer welcome at my dinner table. We even hear about that within families and even our church families.

We need to go back to praying and loving one another.

What if we prayed about our opinions?

We need to understand that prayer is a biblical conversation, not a political affiliation. Let’s not let the enemy get those mixed up in our minds.


Dear ones, these are the kind of events that are tearing apart the fabric of America. We are told ‘what to think’ and ‘how to act’ towards one another and IF we don’t comply, we are humiliated and highly criticized for our beliefs.

We as Christians must show the world that we ARE a safe haven and will NOT eat our own brothers and sisters in CHRIST!

Holy Spirit of the Living LORD, we PRAY in agreement with Your Word in Romans 12:9-21

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.

Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.

Bless those who persecute you; Bless and do not curse.

Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.

Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.

Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.

If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men and women.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good!

Take my life and let it be – consecrated LORD to Thee. Take my moments and my days and let the flow in ceaseless Praise!

Amen and Amen!
